ANTOINE FUQUA: "JAMES HORNER WROTE THE MUSIC FOR MAGNIFICENT SEVEN"
"I just found out a couple days ago his team (James Horner's team) flew out here to Baton Rouge, and they brought me all the music from Magnificent Seven – he had already wrote it for me based on the script. And he did it all off the script because he wanted to surprise me. And I thought it was a gift or something. And they all came out here and they said, "Antoine, James wrote the music for Magnificent Seven already", and it's just glorious. »
"He called me on a Saturday, after he watched the movie, and I said I don't have any money because it wasn't a big budget movie. And he said to me, I love the movie. I love the father-daughter relationship. Don't worry about the money. I'm just going to do it. And he did it for nothing. He paid his crew out of his own pocket."
"I used to hang out at all the sessions (Jerry Goldsmith) as well as those for John Williams and Elmer Bernstein. They were Gods."
Give it to John Debney to interpret and conduct!!!!
I am in shock! I became so emotional reading this! Such an amazing thing to look forward to. I agree with Andre, they should definitely allow someone like Bruce Broughton, David Newman or John Debney or one of Horner’s orchestrators to adapt the music for the picture. I am beyond thrilled at this news and I pray that Fuqua will use the score. This is truly amazing news and answers the plea for that one last joyous, orchestral Horner score!
I agree with the replies you have had so far. It is amazing, and wonderful to hear Mr. Fuqua speaking about James in such a sincere way. How lovely of James to have provided his own funding. There must be so much music, over the years, he hasn’t used that members of his team may be able to publish later on. It is very early yet as films are still to be released, such as 33, not forgetting the recorded Romeo and Juliet and possible Collage. I am looking forward very much to Southpaw as a gift for my birthday next week, but I know it will bring much sadness to me. I still can’t get over seeing him and feeling so elated at those two events and then the most tragic event of all four weeks ago. Keep up the good work JHFM, it’s marvellous what you are all doing.
