As one of the people who personally held nothing against Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I still don’t think that a fifth Indiana Jones movie is a good idea. For one thing, many people didn’t like the last film, and if this is like that, then audiences will just be turned off even further. And, if there is a fifth film, this means that Steven Spielberg will focus his attention on it when, frankly, there are other projects he should work on. Basically, we don’t need a fifth Indiana Jones.
You don’t want one? Too bad! According to Shia LaBeouf, George Lucas, everybody’s favorite storyteller, has come up with a “crazy idea” (you’re supposed to say that in your head like “craaaaaaaazy idea”) for the newest installment. The quote comes to us from ShowBizSpy (via CinemaBlend) and is as follows:
They’re script writing right now, I got called into Steven’s office and he pitched a little bit to me and it sounds crazy; it sounds really cool.
What’s even more important is that in the same article Shia admits that he’s not “a huge spender.” This is good to know, as it was something that I had been contemplating for the past few months. Oh, and regarding that quote about Indy 5, I don’t believe it. If you look at the article, there’s no mention of where this comes from or when it was said, so I don’t think there’s any truth to it. Therefore, I don’t think it warrants any real discussion, other than saying that if this movie does get made, it will both make a lot of money and incur the wrath of the people who are responsible for the movie making money. The wonderful cycle of fanboys.
