Elusive French touch duo Daft Punk — the renowned electro act consisting of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo — will be scoring Dario Argento’s new film, Occhiali Neri, which translates to “Black Glasses.” Confirming the news to The Film Stage, the Suspiria-director noted that “[Daft Punk] heard from French friends that I was shooting a new film and called me [to say], ‘We want to work with you.’”

Sharing that Occhiali Neri is his “return to crime films,” Argento also noted that Daft Punk told him the script was one of his “most interesting” to date. “It’s the adventure, in the nocturnal Rome, of a Chinese girl and child. In the second part, the escape takes them into the rocky, bushy countryside of Lazio. [It’s] different from the sweetness of the Tuscan valleys, but for me beautiful.” The two-piece is currently writing music for the film and will be sending the first songs for the project soon. He expects that they will travel to Italy once it becomes safe in order to work on the project together. Shooting for the film is scheduled to begin in September, with no release date currently set.

Daft Punk’s last motion picture score was for 2010’s TRON: Legacy, with their most recent album arriving in the form of 2013’s Grammy Award-winning Random Access Memories.
