‘American Sniper’ Features Music by Clint Eastwood AND Ennio Morricone!

Clint Eastwood has composed Taya’s Theme, the main theme music for his war drama American Sniper. The movie also features additional music by Joseph DeBeasi who serves as the music editor on the project. Also featured over the end credits sequence of the film is the track The Funeral from the 1965 western The Return of Ringo composed by Ennio Morricone. I know a lot of fans would have welcomed a full score from Morricone who last composed for Eastwood in the 1993 thriller In the Line of Fire. American Sniper stars Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Jake McDorman, Luke Grimes, Navid Negahan and Keir O’Donnell. The movie tells the story of Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history with the nickname “Legend” and 160 confirmed kills. Jason Hall (Paranoia, Spread) has written the screenplay based on Kyle’s autobiography. Cooper is also producing the project with Andrew Lazar (Space Cowboys, 10 Things I Hate About You), Robert Lorenz (Mystic River, Trouble with the Curve) and Peter Morgan (The Queen, Rush). The film was released on December 25, 2014 and opens here in the UK next week on January 16th
