George Lucas has no part to play in Indiana Jones 5…

October 24th, 2016 by Marc Comments


We all know that George Lucas, despite being the creator and driving Force (ahem) behind the franchise until that point, was not involved in making Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

And it seems that he will not be part of the ongoing Indiana Jones franchise now either, despite being part of the triumvirate that held it up along with Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg.

Indiana Jones 5 writer David Koepp has said of Lucas: “He’s not (involved), to my knowledge. I’ve had no contact with him.”

Adding, “I’m deeply immersed as we speak. All I can say is that there’s lots of aliens and Indy dies at the end…”

We assume that’s both having a dig at Lucas for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and sarcasm.

As for the movie hitting screens in July 19, 2019 (here), he said it is set to film next October: “It’s certainly OK for me and I’ll be ready, but my schedule isn’t the tough one. So I think October—I hope, I hope so. We’ll see. That’s a hard one to answer.”

We’d rather Lucas was still involved with the movie, given that Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, John Williams, Steven Spielberg and of course Harrison Ford are all back in their roles… we can’t help feeling it’s a bad movie. But what do we know, right?

What do you all think?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
