This is the best John Williams news I've heard in a long time! Looks to me like it is supposed to come out 2013 now in November. How did nobody know about this?

Nice to see him doing a film for someone other than Spielberg.

Great book. I had no idea it was being filmed, but it's an ideal subject for JW's "Schindler's List"-type stylings.

"It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordion-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library, wherever there are books to be found. But these are dangerous times. When Liesel's foster family hides a Jewish fist-fighter in their basement, Liesel's world is both opened up, and closed down. The Book Thief is a story about the power of words to make worlds. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time"

I'm guessing some Stanley & Iris meets Schindler with the accordion thrown in smile

(Itzhak Perlman wakes up with a start, as if a beautiful dream has just been interrupted. He adjusts the arms of his glasses and puts them on, but slowly, grudgingly. His phone is ringing.)
