Is the Indy franchise dead?

July 26th, 2012 by bash Comments

Crave Online bagged an interview with producer Frank Marshall this week to discuss a range of issues including Jurassic Park 4 and The Bourne Legacy.

However, the most interesting news to come from that chat concerned a fifth Indiana Jones movie – something that is looking less likely than ever.

Contradicting earlier quotes from Harrison Ford and Steven Spileberg, who said that George Lucas was actively working on a follow-up to Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Marshall said: “I think he’s thinking about ideas but he’s certainly not writing one.

“We’d love to keep the series going but again it’s got to be a really good story. They’re hard to do.”

With Ford approaching 70 and a script not even in place it seems that a fifth movie is as far away as ever. In my view this is disappointing news despite the criticism that Crystal Skull received.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
