One of cinema's great modern composers found dead, aged 48

The two-time Oscar-nominee had reportedly been missing for several days.

Jóhann Jóhannsson, the composer behind the memorable soundtracks to the likes of Sicario, The Theory Of Everything, Arrival and Prisoners, has died aged 48.

Jóhannsson, who had previously been nominated for Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Score for both Sicario and The Theory Of Everything, as well as winning the Golden Globe for Best Original Score for The Theory Of Everything, is said to have been missing for several days.

His body was discovered in his apartment in Berlin on Friday, and at the time of writing, no cause of death has been reported.


He had been most recently working on the soundtrack to Mary Magdalene, which is due for cinematic release later in 2018.
