Iconic Italian film composer Ennio Morricone regrets turning down the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood, he revealed in an interview on Thursday.

The 86-year-old award-winning composer told the BBC that he turned down an offer from Eastwood “out of respect to Sergio Leone,” the legendary director with whom Morricone collaborated on landmark spaghetti westerns such as Once Upon a Time in the West, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and A Fistful of Dollars (two of which featured young actor Eastwood).

“I missed a great opportunity and I am really sorry,” he said.

Morricone has not stopped writing cinematic scores, working Quentin Tarantino in 2009 with Inglourious Basterds and in 2012 with Django Unchained.
