‘Indiana Jones 5′ Probably Not Happening Says Producer
Indiana Jones fans are a tough crowd to please. Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford put the perfect cap on a trilogy with ‘The Last Crusade.’ Fans ask for more. So the team reunites for ‘Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,’ and nobody likes it. We want more. Can we expect a fifth ‘Indiana Jones,’ as is often rumored? Producer Frank Marshall has an update.
I say, for me, [Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is] the last hurrah. I know that yes, we talk about it, but there’s no idea, there’s no MacGuffin.
Lucas likes to tease the media with the promise of a great story idea for a fifth Indiana Jones movie. But it’s just that: A tease. Ford’s getting older. No one wants the further adventures of Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf) and his digital monkeys. Of course, everything could change at a moment’s notice if Spielberg, Lucas and Ford get the itch to deliver a perfect closing chapter on this beloved franchise. But for the moment, all indications are that Indy is retired … and he’s likely to stay that way for a long while.
