Frank Marshall confirms Indiana Jones 5
Shia LaBeouf said just the other day that Steven Spielberg had cracked the story for Indiana Jones 5.
Now producer Frank Marshall has confirmed that news. But although there might be an idea, a script is a different story. Well it's the same story, but you know what I mean.
Shia LaBeouf was promoting Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, when he let slip that Steven Spielberg had a story idea for the fifth Indiana Jones film. There had already been rumblings that we wouldn't be waiting too long for another installment. Now Frank Marshall is pretty much saying that we should hold our horses. An idea is one thing, a script is another.
It's really about the script. Once we see that, we'll see. We're not going to wait another 20 years. We'd all love to make another one. I'm anxious to hear the idea!
He was talking to Empire Online. Marshall also says that everyone is on board with the idea of doing another film. One reason for not hanging around, is that Harrison Ford is 66 years old. How does he do it?
Yeah. We had a great time making the last one and, as Harrison said, we need to make this one soon. We're not getting any younger.
Well Ford has already said that the quality of the script will determine whether he returns or not. That isn't a surprise really. I guess now we have to wait for a script to appear. And then wait for Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, George Lucas and Harrison Ford to get in a room together. Let's hope a new script doesn't take as long as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Filmstalker review).
Like it or not Indiana Jones 5 is coming, sooner or later.
