J.J. Abrams Says John Williams Likely to Score 'Star Wars: Episode VII'
The director for "Episode VII" said at a "Star Trek Into Darkness" press conference that he believes Williams will work on the film.
J.J. Abrams is getting his ducks in a row as he readies to direct the next installment of Disney's Star Wars.
During a press conference in Berlin for Star Trek Into Darkness on Monday, Abrams skirted questions about his anticipated next directorial effort.
But when the topic of the Star Wars score and composer John Williams' involvement in the new movie came up, Abrams was more than confident that Williams would be back.
"Again, for Star Wars, it’s very early days, but I believe that, going forward, John Williams will be doing that film because he was there long before I was," Abrams said.
In January, Abrams was set as the director for Star Wars: Episode VII, which Disney plans to release in summer 2015. Last October, Disney purchased Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in cash and stock.
