In great news for Daft Punk fans, the duo have announced that they’re keen to start writing new music soon.
However, in an unexpected pivot, it looks like the next project from them could be the music for an Italian horror film.
As The Film Stage reports, Daft Punk have approached revered Italian director Dario Argento with an offer to write the score for his upcoming movie titled Black Glasses.
79-year-old Argento has been dubbed the ‘Master Of Horror’ and apparently he’s expecting to hear the first part of the score very soon.
“They are my admirers, they know all my cinema,” he said of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo.
“They heard from French friends that I was shooting a new film and called me [to say], ‘We want to work with you.'”
So, what’s the film about? Artento explains that Black Glasses is the adventure of a Chinese Girl and Child.
“In the second part, the escape takes them into the rocky, bushy countryside of Lazio. [It’s] different from the sweetness of the Tuscan valleys, but for me beautiful,” he said.
Daft Punk are no strangers to a film soundtrack, having done the score for 2010’s Tron: Legacy which received mixed reviews.
The soundtrack received a better critical reception than the film itself, with Metacritic writers giving it a 71 out of 100.
