TRON: Legacy’s Daft Punk to score Dario Argento’s new movie

April 28th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Fans of TRON: Legacy’s phenomenal score by Daft Punk have reason to be excited as the duo are set to return to the world of movie scoring.

The French electronic music duo formed in Paris in 1993 by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter have signed on for a very different type of movie though, as they are now attached to horror maestro Dario Argento next movie.

Daft Punk’s score for TRON: Legacy (which I’m listening to as I type) is still one of my favourite scores of all-time, so the thought of the duo doing a second score is a very exciting prospect.

Argento told French magazine Repubblica that the band will be scoring his movie Black Glasses which will star his daughter, Asia Argento, and as of yet has no release date.

“[an] adventure, in nocturnal Rome, of a Chinese girl and child. In the second part, the escape takes them into the rocky, bushy countryside of Lazio.”

We’ll keep you posted, folks, but given the talent and genre, I would expect a cool 80s/Stranger Things-type horror score for this. And if that doesn’t get the blood pumping, I don’t know what will.

Let me know your thoughts, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
