Indy 4 date?

02.06.2007
UPDATE from Spielbergfilms.com -- the release date is official, and it's a WORLDWIDE release on that day. And I still think LAST CRUSADE kinda stinks.

For years, there has been a constant whirlwind of speculation regarding a fourth INDIANA JONES movie. But now that Spielberg has time on his docket, Harrison Ford desperately needs a sure thing and George Lucas is apparently satisfied with the script (a terrifying prospect), the gigantic round boulder is finally starting to roll on the aging archaeologist's next adventure.

Rumor has it the movie will start shooting in June, and if Box Office Mojo is to be believed (and letís face it, they know their numbers), Paramount Pictures has slotted INDIANA JONES AND THE CREAKY FRANCHISE for Thursday, May 22, 2008. That month is also currently looking at IRON MAN and PRINCE CASPIAN for major releases.

Personally, Iíd prefer the character hung up the whip and fedora after the banal rubbish in LAST CRUSADE (substandard villains, the supporting cast reduced to doddering comic relief, the way Indy acquired all his personality quirks during one single incident when he was River Phoenix, etc.). Unless the new movie features an adult Short Round (and his crew of beautiful female kung fu assassins) seeking revenge against Indy for leaving him for dead or some other treasure related transgression, I remain blithely disinterested.
Extra Tidbit: HARRY POTTER director Christopher Columbus previously wrote a script for a fourth film called INDIANA JONES AND THE MONKEY KING. It involved pygmies and magic fruit.

YES, it's about time. Seems like I have been waiting for this movie to be made for years. Oh, Wait I have. Whats another year really, after all it is Indiana Jones. I think that Harrison Ford still has one good Indy flick left in him. Can't Wait.

a different opinion

I like The Last Crusade the best and think that Temple Of Doom is like a bad episode of scooby-doo.

Indiana Jones and the Retirement Home

Better late than never ...

At least Lucas finally agreed to something in the script. Of course it could mean he just wanted to add some CGI talking monkey sidekick for Indy.

I love Indy, but...

George Lucas approving the script should be enough to make any Indy fan curl up in a corner in a whimpering heap. The Indy movies are of some of my absolute favorites (Raiders, the best), but Harrison is too old now (I know, it's not the years, it's the mileage) and the fun has been sucked outta Spielberg and Lucas over the years. Indy 4 is a bad idea.

WAHOO!!!

Holy crap, I can't wait.

And Dave, you can take your opinion of LAST CRUSADE elsewhere - this isn't about that movie, so SHADDAP.

And take down that damn picture of Harrison Ford - sure, it's amusing, but its implication is insulting.

About time

Im happy that they have decided on a script finally. It seems that everyone who could use a word processor was given a shot at it. I bet the reason that Lucas turned down each script was because it did not have enough little green puppets wiedling lightsabers to attack Indy. Of the three, the second was so written to make money it was sickening. The only thing that saved it was short round and some freaking cool ass action sequences. Mola Rama was a complete joke. The guy reminded me of a

The guy reminded me of a waiter at the Universal's Island of Adventures Byzantium town. I mean, all I could see him saying was - "may i take your order" and then smiling an evil smile about how much the meal was going to cost you. The last crusade had at least the dynamic of Indy and his Dad. That put a nice touch on the whole film.

Hmmm...

While I still very much doubt this will ever get off the ground, I suppose I will succumb to their taunts and get excited.

And, to jump into the current discussion, I was under the impression that the grail only dramatically slowed the aging process, as seen by the Knight Templar (to which one could assume than in order to live FOREVER you have to constistently drink from the cup, opposed to the Knight Templar who only did so every so often to sustain himself)so in all actuality we could

Wow I never knew there could be hate toward Last Crusade...out of the three it was the only one that actually gave Indy some character development and actual inner-conflict. It's a polar opposite of Raiders.

This excites me though. I'm interested in seeing how they do this.

Yes I do believe it was 27 years since 1981.

The Last Crusade kicks The Temple of Doom's ass, by the way.

Last Crusade

Although Last Crusade is my least favorite of the first three, I still think it is a great film. What's with all the hate all of a sudden toward these movies? I guess Indiana Jones isn't cool anymore.

Math Problem

Mr. Pistolero,

I'm not saying you don't have a valid point about it being a long time since Raiders came out, but won't it be twenty seven years in 2008, not thirty seven?
That would set this new one in the swinging 60's! Groovy!

My guess is that, during pre-production, they either a)decide to go with a CG Indiana or b)throw in Will Smith as the next generation of heroic archeologists!

Dave?

Why does Dave Davis hate movies? Every time he mentions a classic, it's only to deride it. Dave Davis, shame on you.

*shakes head*

Is the older Indy gonna be like the older Harrison? Will he go around with a ridiculous looking earring and star along side Josh Hartnet in a buddy cop movie in hopes to come off as younger and hipper?

Will Indiana Jones look the same age because he drank from the Holy Grail. Or did passing over the seal remove all immortality?... If walking over the seal put them back at square one then shouldn't his dad have the bullet hole back?...

I think I missed a piece of the narrative or I just dont know anything about Christianity and their Holy Grail.

I've never been THAT interested in the Indiana Jones flicks... But seriously, when this one comes out it will have been THIRTY SEVEN YEARS since Raiders of the Lost Ark was released.

According to Wikipedia that flick was set in 1936... Now I doubt that they'd make it in real time, but if they did, that'd make Indy 4 take place in 1973

Fear and Loathing in the Temple of Doom...
