For his upcoming western-samurai-exploitation-kung fu homage Kill Bill, writer/director Quentin Tarantino sought someone of similar interests to write the film's score. Who did he find?
Nope, not Lalo Schifrin or Ennio Morricone. Unlikely as it may seem, Quentin Tarentino has recruited RZA to compose the score. Tarantino apparently had RZA over to his pad for a kung fu movie marathon and the pair were simpatico on the subject.
RZA previously scored Jim Jarmusch's Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai.
RZA, who will produce, is now working on some retro-styled scene-change themes (also known as "stabs") for the still-lensing film, and will be collaborating on the final score with Metallica skin-thumper Lars Ulrich for some unknown reason.
