Koepp talks Indy 4

Indiana Jones IV Steven Spielberg go-to screenwriter David Koepp, who was brought onboard the Indy train by The Beard to retool the INDIANA JONES IV script, recently spoke to FilmStew.com about his work on the film. Here's a little taste of what he had to say: "You can’t write a fan script. You have to pretend that this movie exists without the other one. The worst thing to do would be to have him make reference to things he said in the first movie, like to pun on lines of dialogue. That’s tempting, because you’ve seen the movie a hundred times and you know all the dialogue, but no human being remembers exactly what they said 25 years ago word for word, much less make reference to it. So you try to put aside the other movies and yet be in the spirit of them.” Amen, brother. Get the rest of what he had to say over HERE.
