No original Morricone score for INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS!

Watched KILL BILL on Blu-Ray last night. I am still mesmerized at how Quentin Tarantino has managed to make very famous pieces of musical score that Ennio Morricone has provided for other films into his own, as if they only ever existed for Tarantino. It's rare that the re-use of a musical score kind of passes ownership but Tarantino amazingly manages to do it time and time again. So of course I was highly anticipating the collaboration between one of my favourite ever directors (Tarantino) and favourite composer (Morricone) for INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS with what was set to be Tarantino's first original score in his filmography. But sadly The Playlist have heard that because of duel commitments, Morricone won't be providing a score for his World War II epic.

Instead he's chosen to work with longtime collaborator and "Cinema Paradiso" director Giuseppe Tornatore once again on his new film, "Baaria - La porta del vento." And it stands to figure, Morricone has written the music for every Tornatore feature aside from his 1986 debut, "Il Camorrista".
But of course that doesn't mean we won't hear Morricone in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. We can fully expect Tarantino to pick and chose from Morricone's great legacy. In fact, if I remember rightly this tune was in the script as Shossana's Theme (it was Deborah's Theme in ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA)...
