Steven Spielberg Promises One Big Thing for Indiana Jones 5

Quote :
With the 73-year-old Harrison Ford signed up for Lucasfilm‘s Indiana Jones 5, many fans are wondering/worried that director Steven Spielberg plans to have the same fate of Han Solo in The Force Awakens befall our favorite globe-trotting archaeologist. Well worry no longer, as the legendary filmmaker has told The Hollywood Reporter that he is not only “super excited” about the fifth installment but that adventure will still have a name at the end of the movie and that name will be Indiana Jones!

“I think this one is straight down the pike for the fans,” said Spielberg, who would not reveal plot details, with one exception: “The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it.”

That’s great news for fans who would likely balk at such an idea, the same way they would be furious if James Bond accidentally slipped in the shower and cracked his skull at the end of a (hypothetical) final 007 movie. Even if this turns out to be the last time Ford puts on the bullwhip and fedora, it doesn’t mean the filmmakers have to have the death-defying character bite the dust. 

“The opportunity to work with Steven again on this character which has brought pleasure to so many… Not to mention me,” Harrison Ford said previously. “It’s fun, it’s great fun to play this character. It’s great fun to work with Steven, I’m looking forward to it.” 

Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce Indiana Jones 5, which will see both Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg return to the franchise. John Williams is expected to once again provide the music, while screenwriter David Koepp (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Jurassic Park) is signed to pen the script.

The movie is set for a July 19, 2019 release date.

Yeah I kind of figured this would happen. That Indy will survive this movie and set it up for either a sequel or some sort of passing of the torch.

In addition, they found the Central plot device apparently.

He Executive Produced the first 3, and KotCS, so I don't really see an issue here.

Quote :

ot like Star Wars, but we hope… right now, we’re focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort,” Iger cryptically stated. “Well, we’ll bring him back, then we have to figure out what comes next. That’s what I mean. It’s not really a reboot, it’s a boot — a reboot. I don’t know. We [got] Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in the film. But then what’s the direction? I’ve had discussions about what the direction is, [but] I don’t want to get into it. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of Star Wars, but I see making more. It won’t be just a one-off.”

To be perfectly honest, I knew a time would come in which Disney would announce that they will proceed with Indiana Jones after Harrison gets too old for the role. They will keep Star Wars going as long as the money keeps rolling, quite likely after old George has kicked the bucket.

It's hard to imagine Indiana Jones without Spielberg, or even a successor figure like Joe Johnston or (dare I say it) Colin Trevorrow to guide the franchise at Disney, so I will wait on it and hope they win me over like they did with Star Wars. The biggest challenge they will inevitably face is whether there is an Indiana without Harrison AND Spielberg.

Steven Spielberg had always said he was waiting for Lucas to come up with an idea. Lucas was the most resistant to returning this time. But with Spielberg being in charge it was always going to be those three together again. Question I wonder is if Crystal Skull will be kicked so they don't have to deal with Mutt and bring back Marion. Igers slip makes it seem a possibility.

Seems unlikely they will pass it off into the 60s-70s with someone but return to the 20s or 30s Young Indy style.

Disney building an Indiana Jones movie universe!?

Quote :

Though a totally different kettle of fish than “Star Wars” and the Marvel comic book movies – being that both of those franchises are intended to fix on different characters, not the one steadfast headline act – Disney have hinted that they’re planning to build a movie universe around their newly-acquired “Indiana Jones” label.

In addition to a recently announced fifth film in the series, one that will reunite Harrison Ford (as Indy) with director Steven Spielberg, ILM president Lynwen Brennan revealed to attendees at Star Wars Celebration Europe this past weekend that an interconnected series of films based on the “Indiana Jones” series could be in the works. What that likely means is that outside of the traditional Harrison Ford-starring “Indiana Jones” movie series, we’ll likely see spin-offs (maybe a Short Round movie?) or prequels to the earlier films (Young Indiana Jones is a given, no!?). Granted, the only confirmed new “Indy” film at this stage is 2019’s Ford-Spielberg effort, so those a little concerned about the ‘universe’ of films happening beyond that mightn’t need to be too worried just yet – the idea might just go away.

I think it more then likely is meant to imply that they are working on a expanded universe for Indiana jones. I could see them doing new Indiana jones novels as well as comics. Indy is overdue for a new comic series, and I think it could be done really well.

Maybe I'm reading too much into this, or I missed something... but Spielberg said he wouldn't kill of the character "at the end of it." I'm guessing this means he won't kill off Indy, but that could technically mean that he dies partway into it and someone else takes the role :/

I'm not sure I'm really on board with this movie - KotCS wasn't my favorite by any stretch (better than ToD in my opinion but not nearly as good as the other two), but I thought it ended the series at a pretty good place. As for continuing the franchise in the future - I wouldn't mind comics or books or even animated films, but this particular series is based on the adventures of one character, not really a whole galaxy or world like other franchises. To drag it on forever or (worse) end it at a bittersweet or depressing place won't help it, and I'm afraid that's what's going to happen. Hopefully the next film will prove me wrong!

Oh god, I mean I know this was posted over half a year ago, but is this still happening? There's nothing worse than modern cinematic universes. They are cancer cash cows.

The tale of Indiana Jones should've ended when he and the other three amigos rode to sunset in Crusade. It would've been near perfect trilogy for the ages. Each of the original three is like adventure for life time. But now we have that lame Crystal Skull everybody hates in the catalogue, upcoming fifth film where Indy's biggest adventure will be finding out in which retirement home he's going to end up in, and then possibly endless run of soft reboot/sequel/prequels in cinematic universe. It feels just so milked out already. Can't any franchise just finish at it's prime?

The only good thing about Indy 5 is that Lucas (seemingly) is not going to be part of it after all. Good riddance

While I think a new Indiana Jones live action film series is inevitable, starting off with old Harrison Ford with Spielberg, and then transitioning to a younger version of himself at the beginning of his adventures, I don't think it's the best way forward for the franchise. The series was always about Henry Jones Jr and not about the incidental characters or his father/descendants, that's something Star Wars can get away with for better or for worse.

Personally, I'd be much more open to an animated series or animated theatrical feature film of Indiana Jones in this exact same style of animation. We have the sharp 2D style emulating the style of the old pulp magazines and willingness to go dark and gruesome just like the movies. You could still have Harrison Ford or a different voice actor who can emulate his voice well enough to keep to keep up that familiar Harrison spirit. As a TV series it would be a nice addition to the classic trilogy and showing us the sort of adventures he got up to with characters like Marion and Short Round, without the need to spent $200 million on it. But as a movie, it would be a boon to animation fans everywhere for a being a 2D animated film with great story, atmosphere and character and having the added bonus of being Indiana Jones.

There already was TV series, "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles". Although that was live action.

Anyway the only Indy product besides the original trilogy that's worth anything in my book was Fate of Atlantis. Amazing adventure game, just like most old Lucasarts titles were until they started cashing on SW and lost their soul.

Okay, fine there was a TV series, but in animation?? I think you might be missing the point of my last post.

Also, I have not had the pleasure to play Fate of Atlantis, and I can think of a few close friends of mine who would like to see that either as a movie, comic or animated feature.

Yeah I know you specified animation, that's why I said "live action" Wink I just wanted to mention there has been TV adaptations before. But yes in general I agree Indy would be much more suited to TV than films, whatever the TV format would be. TV can take more chances nowadays as well while these big budget franchises, especially watered down cinematic universes, are all playing it safe to cater for everyone. And make money, so much money.

The plot of Fate of Atlantis was just as good as in the trilogy, as was the atmosphere. In a way I would consider it the fourth Indy film in game form, although it doesn't quite bookmark things quite as smoothly as Last Crusade did. Anyway obviously it's not really canon but just really, really good side product.

As much as I think that Last Crusade, which is my favorite movie in the series, had a pretty much perfect ending for the series, I could still settle for the ending of KotCS too (I was probably about to chuck something at the screen near the end but then at least Indy took his hat back). I'm still cynical about yet another movie; I don't want them to become depressing. Animation, video games, etc. could be fun. I've never played Fate of Atlantis; it looks like an intriguing game and it's available on Steam though...

If you've ever played Monkey Island or any of those other classic adventure titles, Fate of Atlantis is right up your alley. There's even voice acting which for 1992 is pretty good. IMO Indy's actor sounds almost better than Ford himself lol.

There was also another old Indy Lucasarts title, 1989 adventure game adaptation of Last Crusade itself, but it wasn't nearly as good. Also "the Infernal Machine" released in 1999, it had it's moments too but for 3D action-adventure game it had too weird controls and gameplay mechanics.

LaBeouf still has talent wrapped in a mentally unstable, damaged package. Lohan never had talent and she was exploited by her father. Might have been both parents.

But he is box office poison now so he is effectively blacklisted anyway.
