John Williams, the legendary composer behind iconic scores for Star Wars, Jaws, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, and many more, could be retiring from scoring movies after the final Indiana Jones movie.
In an interview with Associated Press, the 90-year-old conductor/composer hinted that Indiana Jones 5 might be his last film. Williams cited star Harrison Ford's announcement that Indiana Jones 5 will be his last film.as a motivating factor in his decision.
“At the moment I’m working on Indiana Jones 5, which Harrison Ford — who’s quite a bit younger than I am — I think has announced will be his last film. So, I thought: If Harrison can do it, then perhaps I can, also,” he said in the interview, adding that the six-month commitment to score most blockbuster films is 'at this point in life ... a long commitment to me.”
The five-time Oscar winner will still be involved in music though, and plans to focus more on concert music. He recently released a collaboration album with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, titled A Gathering Of Friends.
