You know how we’re always discussing the best pairings in film history? Your first guess is understandably DiCaprio and Scorsese, De Niro and Scorsese, Samuel L. Jackson and Tarantino, and so, right? How about we stop forgetting that John Williams, world famous composer of all your favorite classics, has scored all of Spielberg’s films except two of them.  (Comment below if you know the movies)

Instead, Ready Player One, the sci-fi novel written by Ernest Cline, will be adapted by Spielberg and scored by Alan Silvestri, who is basically the Williams to Robert Zemeckis’ Spielberg. Silvestri is the reason we have the only memorable Marvel movie score (The Avengers) and is the mastermind behind other films such as The Polar Express, Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, and Cast Away.

The reason the duo couldn’t get this film added to their catalog is because Ready Player One alongside Spielberg’s other film The Papers are due to have post production at the same time which at least has Williams scoring The Papers just in case you thought they wouldn’t make another film collaboration.

Zemeckis and Spielberg are one of the most powerful duos to ever make movies and influence the film medium, ever, so of course it makes sense for them to have some weird connection like preferred composers if one of their favorites goes down.
