Indy 5 in progress

06.18.2009

Just the other day, Jones bastard Shia LaBeouf claimed that Stephen Spielberg had figured out a story for a fifth INDIANA JONES adventure.

This would seem to be corroborated by the series producer Frank Marshall, who recently made this claim via Twitter: "The story for Indy5 is progressing. It is still in the research phase."

Bear in mind that the fourth archaeologist tale took over a decade of "progressing" before it arrived at what we received last summer (assuming you define that as "progress"), so this could still be a ways off.

But Marshall also tells Empire: "It's really about the script" (which again implies the last one was also). "Once we see that, we'll see. We're not going to wait another 20 years. 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."

They've done famous religious artifacts, interdimensional aliens and glowing rocks (and the MUMMY movies did a number on various other antiquities)... is there anything left to unearth? Besides Hell itself? Hmmm... could the good doctor be taking the works of Dante literally? Is Belloq waiting for him below?

Extra Tidbit: Word I've heard is that Marshall was largely responsible for THE BOURNE IDENTITY turning out as good as it did.

AAHHH MY EYES!!!!

that's what happened when the swinging by the trees scene came, and then the *spoilers* big ufo saucer took off *done w/spoilers*.

its a good thing that we are CPR-ing this franchise after the great rape Spielberg and Lucas did to it (and i'm a fan of'em both). i just think ET belonged in space, not here.

now, if we can move away from what happened last time, i think we'd be better of.

in the meantime...where's that mental Undo button.

Duh

Guys. It's obvious he's going to be looking for the fountain of youth. :)

Oh, and in other pleasing news to the fans, I heard that Mutt dies half way through the script, and it focuses on Indy and Marion from that point on. That's why this already sounds better than the last one to me.

i agree that lucas needs to realize that no one likes him anymore. hes your typical nerd. he a had a world of imagination when he was young, but as he got older - he just became lame and laughable. like i said before, the new Indy is nothing more than a Saturday morning cartoon, as well as the new star wars films. Ive seen muppet babies episodes that are geered more for grown-ups.

Ive seen muppet babies episodes that are geered more for grown-ups.

Example: (right from the start) the Paramount Mountain in the first three: a mountain in the amazon, a depiction on a Japanese gong, a rock formation in the midwest. the Paramount Mountain in the new Indy: a cartoon gopher.

the South Park was 100% on, and anyone who liked the new Indy is the equivalent of butters - a dork!

Save Indy for Harrison & Spielberg!!!! Please!

I agree 100% Huttjos, Spielberg needs to tell him straight. However, I feel that Lucas will once again stamp his feet and throw his toys right out of the pram and scream " no!! my movie!! I want to do it this way, so nyeh!!!"

Indy 4 was such a piece of sh&t..

I would like to see an indy 5 regain the greatest of the indy franchise, but quite frankly, since lucas will be involved, spielberg needs to makes thing clear to him and do away with green screen.

Indiana Jones is about rustic; how can you have rustic with a green screen!!!!

Yeah! Don't let Indy go out like that!

I really think Indy IV would've been fine minus a few fatal sequences; Jungle Boy, Rope Snake etc. Without those few goofy parts I think everything else; nuclear explosion, interdimentional beings (aliens) would've been much easier to swallow. Sure, it wouldn't have been Raiders-up but it's those cringe-worthy scenes that take it down to the Jar-Jar level. Also- the FX were stunning - so stunning that it removed all the realism from the big action pieces! There's no tension! The best sequence

Also- the FX were stunning - so stunning that it removed all the realism from the big action pieces! There's no tension! The best sequence in the film was the (all too short) [link] warehouse chase and if you watch the behind the scenes stuff you'll see that it's because everything was practical! (obviously some enhancement, but the crashes/stunts/crate explosions were all done on set!!) Seriously, the CGI may have been photo-real, but the audience can tell when it looks too well orchestrated. When the physics of things feel too hyper-stylized (fridge bouncing, rocket sled), we simply don't believe them! All I can ask is that there's more stunts/practical explosions/crashes and less CGI spectacle- it's impressive, yes but not thrilling- it's not the 90s anymore - the gimmick is getting lost on the viewers.

OH! one more thing... would've it been really that hard to use a real groundhog in the opening shot? I'm sorry, CGI animals just never come across as real to me.

Out of all the proposed sequels being tossed around, I'm really excited for this one. Indy 5 has potential given all the talent, and I'd really like a "final" Indy movie to send him out in style.

WHO CARES? still palpitating

I am a complete fan of Indiana Jones. I loved all four films and I cant wait to read more BS from these Shmoes who bash Indy 4.

If Lucas jumps in, so be it, it's bound to happen during pre-production eventually, let's just get this thing going and quench the thirst for more action/adventure starring Ford as Jones. Isn't that what it all comes down to anyway? Who cares if you get a new sidekick in the next film? Who cares who the villain is? Who cares who is the double crosser? Who

Who cares who is going to play Indy's next mentor? Who cares if Marion Ravenwood left Indy for Sallah? Who cares how they are going to dissolve the Paramount logo this time? Who cares what the MacGuffin will be? Who cares where this film will take place? Who cares how is hat will be missing and come back to him? Who cares that he will grab the lead actresses head at one point and evade a serious decapitation? Who cares what kind of gross-out animal or insect they will use? Who cares what the next title will be?

When it comes right down to it, it's HARRISON FORD as INDIANA JONES, and to me, that's enough to get me into the theatres.

"Yes basically we're working hard on getting the script just right. Steven and I have discussed how much the fans felt let down last time so we're really planning on giving them a treat. Then at the last minute Lucas will barge in and throw out all the good work and favour a script some dude who wrote an episode of Relic Hunter or something knocked up in the toilet. He'll want a comedy sea lion and he wants to do all the oxygen in CGI. Then he's going to introduce Indy's three unknown daughters

Then he's going to introduce Indy's three unknown daughters and the ghost of Henry Jones, Sr. He's also going to stick his fingers in his ears and say ' tra la laa laa I'm not listening' whenever someone points out how ridiculous it is. Should be fun...

I'm reading between the lines, here on JoBlo...and just seeing the objective news of a fifth Indiana Jones movie.

Having thoroughly enjoyed ALL four equally (yes, equally, dammit), all I can say is, YES!!

I'm all for this as long as they learn from their mistakes. I mean I'd much rather see them attempt to make the series go out on a high note than have it finish with Crystal Skull.

How about going back and fixing the last one. Polish that turd and make a Crystal Skull the Viewable Edition. And I don't hate it because its fashionable, I tried so hard to like that movie (the only one I didn't see in theaters).

Well, the last movie WAS about the script. As in they couldn't decide on a script so when Ford said he'd bail on 'em they just grabbed the closest thing at hand.

Hmmm...actually, maybe that's exactly what DID happen. Scary.

Oh, and the last one would've been an okay movie if they didn't call it "Indiana Jones". It's all about standards. The first three were just better films, and the fourth felt like they were working with a deadline.

If they do another one, do it based on the other ideas they had for the last one. Like the lost city of Atlantis, or another religious artifact. But please keep Shia out of the picture.

I've never really understood why some many people rag on movies like Indy 4 and the 3 Star Wars prequels so much. Oh yeah, because they are 20 plus years older and forgot how to view the movies as the child they once were. I thought Indy 4 was great. I love ALL 4 of them and hope they make 2 more. Yes the story could have been better, but I didn't have a problem with it and apparently a lot of other people didn't considering the money it made. I would still love to see something involving an
