Film-maker Quentin Tarantino will be honoured with a lifetime achievement award at the International Rome Film Festival.
The 49-year-old will be awarded ahead of the European premiere of his new film in Italy next month.
Composer Ennio Morricone, who worked with the director on the movie, will present Tarantino with his latest accolade, reports contactmusic.com.
The movie is inspired by Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 Spaghetti Western Django, which starred Franco Nero. Nero has a small role in Tarantino’s Django Unchained as well.
The film starring Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave trained as a bounty hunter by German-born bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). Using his vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal, that is, finding and rescuing the wife he lost to the trade slave long ago.
