Earlier this year, Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi finally released their joint album, Rome, that served as an ode to classic Italian film scores. In particular, it was heavily indebted to the spaghetti western classics such as The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly and Once Upon A Time In The West. To ensure the authenticity of the project, Danger Mouse and Luppi travelled to the studio where those film scores were recorded and used some of the same players.
Considering how much effort they put into the release, it’s not terribly surprising to learn that they’re not going to leave it at that. Apparently they have again linked with director Chris Milk to shoot a film inspired by Rome. You might know him for his direction in the video for Rome‘s “3 Dreams of Black.” Milk’s previous work also includes the music videos for Kanye West’s “Touch the Sky” and “Jesus Walks,” Gnarls Barkley’s “Gone Daddy Gone,” and Arcade Fire’s “We Used To Wait/The Wilderness Downtown.”
There is no scheduled release date or even a name attached to the film, but we’re sure more information will be coming soon. For now, you can watch Milk’s video for “3 Dreams of Black.”
