I'd like to think Bill Conti was sitting in his opulent mansion at 3 am, in a wife beater and boxer shorts, with a Gandalf-length beard, finishing a bag of cool ranch Doritos while watching TV. Then he saw yet another story about John Williams going strong at 90.
And it enraged him so, he leapt out of his Barcalounger, called his agent and got back into the business.
This is terrific news. The man is a living legend, and he sounds inspired about this project.
