Indy 4 a go?
As I state below, the Golden Globes last night were a major snore. But if there's one good (great, in my eyes) thing to come out of last night, it appears we have confirmation from both Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford that a fourth INDIANA JONES film is a go. One of Fox's reporters caught up with Spielberg, his wife Kate Capshaw and Ford at a Globes after-party and here's what he found out:
So what's the story, I wanted to know - with this trio finally in one place, and relaxed enough to talk, will we ever see INDIANA JONES 4? "Yes," they all said, and confirmed that once Spielberg films CATCH ME IF YOU CAN with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, IJ4 will be his priority. "We have a title, but we're not ready to announce it," Spielberg said. "I will give you one clue, though. Kate is in it." I asked if he meant that Capshaw's character would appear via flashbacks, and he replied: "No. She'll be in the present." Ford, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award, said he's ready to take on this last chapter. "It was always about getting the right script, and now we have it," he said.
Holy mackerel! Could this be as clear-cut as it sounds? Probably not, but a guy can dream, right? I'm just wondering if the recent Stephen Gaghan script is the one they're going with. And a title!! Good, God, someone please find out the title! Pretty exciting news indeed...
Spielberg also revealed later in the interview that
he would no longer be directing MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA. "I'm not going to do
it...It's over," the director told Fox. Click here to
