    From Billy Bob Thornton’s new book, A CAVE FULL OF GHOSTS:

    “I don’t think I could have reeled in ALL THE PRETTY HORSES. Directing it was a difficult thing because I had the script already and I had a aclear vision of how to direct that script, but it was Ted Tally’s script so the credit all goes to him in how you pare that book down into a movie. It was still a daunting task to direct something that big.’

    “I was told, and we may as well talk about it because we’ve never done that other than amongst each other, at night, with a bottle of whisky–that was the best score ever….a producer’s wife at the studio thought that the music was too sparse…just like taking the score out of the movie, the cut was the same thing…’

    “That was the best and most haunting score for a movie I’ve ever heard in my lifetime. Ever. And to this day it is….” He says he’d like to find another movie to use that score with, something the “lawyers won’t be allowed to fuck up.”
