ANTOINE FUQUA DISCUSSES THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN SCORE
“They played it for me and it just blew me away…. It was almost like, ‘How do you know you’re going to pass away?’ Of course, I don’t think he knew that, but that’s a weird feeling that someone can write to your script and give it to you after he’s gone.”
“I sat with James and I said, ‘I don’t know if I’m going to do it. I’m having a tough time trying to get the money to match the level of actors,’ blah blah blah….”
“He’s a very slight guy and soft-spoken. He kind of looked at me and said, ‘You have to do it. Antoine, you’ll make history. Denzel and Chris? Don’t worry about money. I’ll do it for whatever. But you’ve got to make that movie. You’ll probably never get to make another western in your lifetime. You’ve got to do it.'”
I like that James was one of the original reasons behind the making of the film. It just sucks he wasn’t able to give the music to Antoine before his passing. June 22 was the worst day for film music lovers. I cannot wait to see this movie and hear the final score James ever wrote. I know Simon won’t let us down.
This shows that James was an inspiring presence for so many people. It was really special for him to encourage Antoine Fuqua the way he did. It’s breaking my heart a little because I am so moved by this.
I am happy, that the score will be used in the picture. I am still very sad, that James Horner died. I was on June 22 in Cologne (Köln) and celebrate “Titanic Live” in the Arena 3 days after I had heard “Pas de deux” and some weeks, after i Kow, tnat he will score the Avatar sequels. His dead was a shock for me. Since the late 8oths I enjoy his great scores. I hope, that the new Magnificent 7 is a good film. For one last time we can enyo a new movie with his music!
