The man who has written more movie soundtracks than one can count says rumours of his retirement are unfounded.
91-year old composer John Williams has won five Academy Awards from a staggering 53 nominations and is known for his work on Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Jaws and Harry Potter movies.
He had previously suggested that his score for “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” would be his final full length film composition.
But by the time the film came out, he had already begun to dial back on that. He now tells the Times of London that Steven Spielberg is not someone you can say “no” to – implying he’d be up for working with Spielberg on on future projects.
Williams says, despite his age, he likes to keep an open mind.
