FILM MUSIC REPORTER: SBS SENT OUT INCORRECT INFO LAST WEEK
Many of us have been waiting for a return of the great ongoing collaboration between Brian De Palma and Pino Donaggio, and it looks like it is finally happening. According to Film Music Reporter, SBS Productions sent word Friday that they had accidentally sent out incorrect information last week regarding the composer for De Palma's Passion. Donaggio will score the film, and not Dario Marianelli, as originally stated. This would mark the pair's first collaboration since 1992's Raising Cain. About nine or ten years ago, Donaggio had said that he was to provide the music for De Palma's planned adaptation of Toyer, but that project has yet to get off the ground. Donaggio has scored six films for De Palma: Carrie, Home Movies, Dressed To Kill, Blow Out, Body Double, and the aforementioned Raising Cain. With Donaggio's involvement, Passion looks to be something very special, indeed.
