Quentin Tarantino set to be honoured in Italy

London, Dec. 30 (ANI): Quentin Tarantino is going to be honoured with a lifetime achievement award by the bosses of the International Rome Film Festival, ahead of the European premiere of his western movie 'Django Unchained' in Italy next month.

Composer Ennio Morricone, who worked with the critically acclaimed director on the western, will present Tarantino with his latest accolade, the Daily star reported.

The filmmaker's new movie has strong Italian ties - as well as featuring Morricone's music, it was inspired by Sergio Corbucci's 1966 spaghetti western 'Django,' that starred Franco Nero. Nero has a small role in Tarantino's film. (ANI)
