DreamWorks Pictures has announced Bridge of Spies as the title of Steven Spielberg's upcoming Cold War thriller, which will reunite the director with actor Tom Hanks after nearly a decade. But the film will sadly be without a Spielberg movie staple, as it is the first in 30 years not to feature a score by composer John Williams.

"John Williams' schedule was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected," DreamWorks said in a statement. However the studio also noted that Williams would be rejoining Spielberg later this year on his upcoming adaptation of Roald Dahl classic The BFG.

Bridge Of Spies will instead be scored by BAFTA and Grammy award winner Thomas Newman, who is best known for his work on American Beauty and most recently provided the score for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
