Legendary Film Composer John Williams Eyes Retirement After Scoring ‘Indiana Jones 5’
John Williams has hinted that “Indiana Jones 5” might be his last film. The legendary musician and Oscar-winning composer behind the scores for “Jaws” (1976), “Star Wars” (1977), “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982) and more teased the news in an interview with Associated Press, “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.”

Williams, 90, pointed to the six-month commitment often required by blockbuster films. He said, “At this point in life, [it’s] a long commitment to me.” But five-time Oscar winner Williams made it clear that he wasn’t going to close the door on music. He said, “I don’t want to be seen as categorically eliminating any activity.”
