Latest Movie News Headlines

The latest reboot is Indiana Jones! Spielberg is out, Abrams is in.

Mar. 31, 2011by: Mike Sampson

GULP. You feared this day was coming and now it's actually here. The INDIANA JONES reboot. I repeat: GULP.

According to Deadline, instead of proceeding with a fifth INDIANA JONES film that had been in development, Paramount Pictures will instead reboot the franchise with a new adventure that will take place sometime between TEMPLE OF DOOM and "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles." What's even more interesting is who they've lined up to direct. Mr. SUPER 8 himself, JJ Abrams.

But wouldn't STAR TREK 2 preclude Mr. Abrams from directing this film? Ah and that's where things get interesting. It turns out that Paramount and Abrams aren't very happy with the development of the TREK 2 script and are looking for a massive rehaul. Instead of sitting on their hands, they've decided to fill that void in the schedule with a project they hope to mobilize rather quickly.

While no actors have met with Abrams yet, the shortlist for a younger Indiana Jones includes Bradley Cooper, Chris Pine and Michael Fassbender. As for Steven Spielberg, he's on board to produce the film with George Lucas taking an exec producer credit (you reboot the film but can't get rid of him?!).

Are you ready for one more bombshell (one you probably guessed by looking at the image above)? Paramount wants Abrams to consider filming the movie in 3D. Abrams is not the biggest fan of 3D and bristled when Paramount wanted him to consider 3D for STAR TREK 2. Will they get their wish for INDY? Will fanboys worldwide have a heart attack before this even happens? CLICK HERE to read further details...

Extra Tidbit: Be honest. Did you believe this story, even for a few seconds?

Disney can go straight to Hell

Indy is my favorite series. If they reboot this franchise, they can go dtraight to hell. Harrison has been indy since 1981 & Lucas built an entire origin story with Young Indiana Jones. They can kiss my a$$ if they think Im oing to be hip to this news.

This prank would be funny except it will probably come to pass in a couple of years. When this does happen the best we can hope for is the casting of Nathan Fillion in the lead he's the only non-Harrison Ford actor I can see in the part.

Whats bad about this joke is right now this article is giving someone the idea in Hollywood to reboot Indiana Jones. I mean its following Rebooting triditions which is the last film was hated (Although I didnt mind it) and as soon as a sequel fails then that pretty much is the green light to a reboot since hollywood thinks its always better to reboot insted of redeeming that sequel by making something better or not continuing with it.

Nah.

The Internet has killed April Fools Day.
No offense guys, but I haven't fallen for one at this site (or really any other site) in like a decade. But nice try... and again, it's not your fault that I (and I assume others) didn't buy it for a second.
*still love JoBlo*:)

This has to be a joke. Today is April 1st, trying to reboot Indy is like trying to reboot Star Wars, it's just too much to do. Joblo also tried a similar pull not long ago on April 1st when it said that Jim Cameron was working with Chris Nolan to digitally bring back the Joker. I wouldn't sweat it too much guys.

C'mon Joblo.com...April 1st comes but once a year, I think you can do better than an "Indy reboot". ALL genre fans know how loose Lucas is @ re-releasing his babies & what a tight-ass he'd become when it'd come to any "re-imagining".

Next to the death of a famous person (The Onion tried Harry Connick Jr. today...fucking really?) everybody could spot this as fake from a mile away. But look on the bright side...next year is 2012, you've got nothing but PARANOIA fueling your April Fool's

I totally bought it and wish it was true

This would result in a far superior film then what IJ5 will inevitably become and what IJ4 was. Abrams is a fresh young Spielberg more or less. Spielberg is a legend but he hasn't created a good film in a while and he has produced some real shit (um Transformers) and has developed a total butt crush on the most annoyingly lame actor in Hollywood, Shia Leturd. Anyway I totally bought this and was actually a little bummed that it wasn't true. Mainly because it wasn't Shia that was being

Not at all, but what made it worse was you said it was taking place between Temple of Doom and the Young Indy Chronicles - at least ATTEMPT to make the article make sense. What a half-hearted effort

Goddamit! You gave me a heart attack. I was so upset, I couldn't even click on the link to see the "further details." Fortunately, I glanced down to the comments to see what other people thought of this. I want to say "Good one," but I'm still shaking a bit.

But honestly, I wouldn't put it past Paramount to do this.

Hollywood will remake a remake of a remake so I actually believed this - until, of course, I realized what day it was.
A few years back I was actually taken in by April Fools article pertaining to the rumoured sequel to Se7en, 8ight :P It just seemed like the sort of idiotic and shameless move that Hollywood loves to make.

Within 10-15 years this wont be as funny anymore, actually rather likely.

Star Wars will probably get a trilogy of sequels within the same period.

You def shouldn't put the Extra Bit in on these things... the best part of these jokes has always been the copious amounts of people who actually believe it (My all time favorite remains to be: EIGHT the sequel to Se7en was being developed!)

We run these for "fun", but unfortunately we've run into some problems in years past, where folks believe it, send it out and it suddenly becomes "real news" (Beckinsale as Wonder Woman was one as such, and the Keanu Reeves/Alan Cumming wedding actually made it all the way to the Conan O'Brien Show).

Pegged this

Knew it was an early April Fools, but kudos on the picture, and well written (nearly) convincing article.

God damn!

Hat's off. I always forget when the 1st roles around to be on my toes (actually just an hour in now) but I was ready to believe every bit. If this ever DID come to fruition, I wouldn't worry too much, since Harrison Ford is the only reason I still care for the franchise (as bad as the fourth was, he still gave the best performance he'd done in years).

That's why I believed it initially. I only saw the headline on MFC and didn't actually read the story itself, but it quickly became clear to me what this was.

Frighteningly enough, it's not THAT unbelievable. It could feasibly happen, quite frankly...

Reading this site at midnight on April 1st is not for the faint of heart. Thankfully I didn't skip the extra tidbit.

Nicely done, Mr. Sampson. I was wondering what the story would be this year and this was a great choice.

I was just about to say that this was totally an April Fool's joke but YoshioKun13 beat me to it, and by the time this post was finished three more people posted, damn. Nice try though, its never safe to believe movie news on March 31st knowing the next day is April 1st aka April Fool's.

GOOD ONE, MIKE!

You mother... Nah, I'm just kidding, man. That was awesome. The last time I got fooled on this site was when JoBlo posted that fake Kate Beckinsale as Wonder Woman article back in '06. That sneaky bastard.

lol lol lol. I have to admit you got me. I was about two lines in when I went "FUCK IT. I'm pissed off like I've never been at Hollywood!" and then in a fit of rage I linked up my movie nerd friends (damn, even my dad) on Facebook with this news, stating just how fucking mad I was. Haha, then I read the rest and now I feel muuuuch better!

Nice try!

You got me for a moment, fact I was just about to tweet about this as if it was legit. Then I remembered what the date was.

Good one.

Aw shit. You really had me going for a bit. Honestly, the shit that's been churning out of Hollywood these days, I wouldn't put it past them.

Well done, Samps!

My thoughts?

That is all.

(aka : they raped him a first time, it wouldn't have been a surprise to see them take another go at a younger Indy :P)

Negative. But good intentions none the less, Sampson! Personally, I expected better.
