Legendary French producer duo Daft Punk are back in business. They are currently in the process of scoring an upcoming movie directed by Dario Argento.
The score for Occhiali Neri will serve as Daft Punk’s first full-length release since 2013’s Random Access Memories and the group’s first film score since Tron: Legacy in 2010.
Occhiali Neri—which translates to Black Glasses—is the latest film from legendary horror director Argento, who made classic movies like Suspiria, Inferno and Tenebrae. The film focuses on a Chinese family in Rome and the countryside, and will star Asia Argento. It’s due to start filming in September.
Argento told Italian newspaper La Repubblica that Daft Punk reached out to him, said they were fans and asked if they could work with him. Argento also said that the French duo told him that the script for Occhiali Neri is one of his “most interesting.”
“They are my admirers, they know all my cinema,” Argento said of Daft Punk. “They heard from French friends that I was shooting a new film and called me [to say], ‘We want to work with you.’”
Any news regarding Daft Punk and new music is good news, we, as with many others, cannot wait for new productions from the legends.
