The maestro is back! 5-time Academy Award Winner John Williams is currently working on an original score for the upcoming book to film adaptation of The Book Thief.

Amazon writes, “The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that will be in movie theaters on November 15, 2013, Markus Zusak’s unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.”

According to Film Music Reporter: “The Book Thief marks Williams’ first scoring assignment for another director than Steven Spielberg since 2005. The composer had been in talks to score the project since last year before the movie started shooting.”

Here’s an except depicting what could become potential themes or musical cues:

“It’s a small story really, about, among other things:
* A girl
* Some words
* An accordionist
* Some fanatical Germans
* A Jewish fist fighter
* And quite a lot of thievery”
― Death, The Book Thief

Could this be another hit like the music from Schindler’s List was 20 years ago?

Last month Lucasfilm confirmed that Williams is returning to the Star Wars franchise for Episode VII.

Thanks, John Williams Fan Network and Film Music Reporter.
