In a recent interview with German Playboy, Morricone is trashing and throwing major shade at Quentin Tarantino, a filmmaker he worked with on “The Hateful Eight”.
“He calls out of nowhere and then wants to have a finished film score within days, which is impossible. Which makes me crazy! Because that’s just not possible. And I do not go there anymore. I told him that last time. But next time I will be tough. Then he can kiss me.”
“The man is a cretin. He just steals from others and puts it together again. There is nothing original about that. And he is not a director either. So not comparable to real Hollywood greats like John Huston, Alfred Hitchcock or Billy Wilder. They were great. Tarantino is just cooking up old stuff.”
The Playboy interview says that Morricone admitted that he didn’t like Tarantino’s films and called them “trash.”
