Is there any way this could be worst then the 4th?
After the aliens in the last one im finished.
yes it can be worse
imo, the only good one was the third one.
Well shia is taking the lead role in the next one so the answer is yes...it will suck worse
first and third were good. 4 was just embarrassing. it be hard to make a movie worse than that imo.
The last one just didn't work. Maybe they'll use the script Speilberg originally wanted, instead of the one that Lucas demanded upon since he just HAD to have aliens.
I really can't believe they're going to try another one. How could the actors & directors watch that last debacle and justify their performance in their minds? How could they see anything else but a huge mistake? And why the fuck would they put the world through that again?
I'm one of the five people in the world that didn't think the fourth one was terrible. Was the ending way over the top, and was the ant scene, and the swinging on vines ridiculous? Yes... Crap, after rethinking my position while I typed this, it was a pretty terrible movie.
I won't be seeing this one, especially if Harrison Ford isn't the lead.
Yeah, I'm not an Indy fan at all. The one with Sean Connery was good, but 1 and 4 were garbage IMO. I didn't realize going in that there were going to be these supernatural elements and it just ruined a good movie (1st) and the 3rd was just over the top with the ants and vines and crystal alien heads and what not.
George Lucas will not be returning for Indiana Jones 5
Oct 24, 2016 1:43 PM
With the financial success of Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens (and for the most part, a pass from fans), the hot new Hollywood trend appears to be not asking George Lucas for any help. When asked by Collider whether the bearded one was coming on board for Indiana Jones 5, screenwriter David Koepp replied. “He’s not, to my knowledge. I’ve had no contact with him.”
Lucas, the man who wrote and directed American Graffiti and Star Wars as well as helped bring Industrial Light & Magic into the world, is also widely regarded these days as the guy who ruined Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and your childhood for good measure. Lucas was not involved at all with last December’s The Force Awakens, and it would appear he’s just fine leaving Jones behind as well. (With the previous four Indy adventures, Lucas would come up with the idea and act as producer while Spielberg would direct.)
Koepp, who previously penned Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, goes on to explain that the core of Indiana Jones 5 is the MacGuffin:
“I think Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, being set in 1957 there was a conscious desire to say, ‘Much like two of the other ones were World War II movies set in the ’30s and early ’40s, this is ’57 so a lot of our influences are gonna be science fiction movies. I thought Steve did a really good job with that. I don’t know that the idea was most suited to an Indiana Jones movie, but that’s what we did. We tried to be very careful with the selection of the MacGuffin and the eras to give ourselves as much latitude to make the best kind of Indiana Jones movie that we most want to see. For me, it was the MacGuffin dictates everything.”
Audiences did seem to feel slighted at the time of Crystal Skull’s release, when it was revealed that ancient aliens were involved, ignoring the irony of believing in the magical powers of the Ark of the Covenant, three magic rocks, and the Holy Grail, but not extraterrestrial life. No, the real issues with Crystal Skull lay in an aging (and perpetually bored) Harrison Ford, lame attempts at comedy, and—let’s face it—the Russians were never that bad, especially not when you compare them to Nazis, the best villains any screenwriter could ever ask for.
Koepp also cracks wise about killing Indiana Jones off this time around, which, as we all know, was the only way J.J. Abrams got Ford back for The Force Awakens.Koepp declined to reveal what the new MacGuffin would be (the Lost City Of Atlantis has long been a rumor), only stating that it was hatched by himself and Spielberg and that “top men are working on it.” He adds, “It’s clean and simple and makes a lot of sense.”
Indiana Jones 5 is slated for release on July 19th, 2019.
Disney paid a lot if money for the Indy franchise, no way they let Lucas be involved with the story.
Shouldn't they make a 4th one before they make a 5th?
ive said for a while now the 2 worst sequels of all time...dumb and dumberer and kingdom of the crystal skull
The Independence Day sequel this year is on that list for me. I loved the first one so much that I would have lied and said I liked the second if it was just bad, but it was horrible.
Disney doesn't whiff much. I'm cautiously optimistic
Still think a gritty R-rated remake of Raiders would be their best bet, but I'll watch regardless.
IT'S THE 4TH OF JULY, LET'S SHOW THEM SOME FIREWORKS
I really wish they'd just leave George alone. The guy sold his IPs and rode off into the sunset. Anytime he's interviewed he just sounds annoyed and sometimes bitter.
Spielberg: Indiana Jones 5 Will Likely Be Harrison Ford's Last
Steven Spielberg believes Indiana Jones 5 will most likely be Harrison Ford's last film as the beloved character.
In an interview with the Sun, Spielberg confirmed that the fifth film in the franchise, which begins production in April next year, will be Ford's final stint as the treasure hunter. However, the franchise will still continue after him. “This will be Harrison Ford’s last Indiana Jones movie, I am pretty sure, but it will certainly continue after that," Spielberg said.
The filmmaker also touched on who could replace Ford in the role, saying it's time the explorer took “a different form" and that he wouldn't object to a new-look Jones being a female character. “We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan," Spielberg said. "And there would be nothing wrong with that.”
Indiana Jones 5 will open in theaters on July 10, 2020. For more on the film, read about why Shia LeBoeuf's Mutt Williams will not be returning and how John Rhys-Davies envisions his return as Sallah.
A female Indiana Jones?
Why would they change the character's surname to make it more gender appropriate?
This is what I thought Indiana Jones is easily a female name as well.
BTW, This is the perfect vehicle for The Rock as he ages.
So Tomb Raider?
Would rather have a woman than that.
If they insisted on casting a woman, Emily Blunt would be my top choice.
The torch must be rightfully passed.
I have an odd love for the Rock. I think it's because the first time I saw him it was live in a shitty Thursday night match at ND and he was an obvious star then.
One of my female students is named Indie (not after the town nor the movie oddly enough)
Hopefully there's more Shia in this one.
its not odd
The Rock is awesome as long as the premise isnt retarded like having giant apes and flying wolves or climbing stupidly tall skycrapers
The problem is those are the scripts he's picking.
Outside of Ballers, he's not exactly giving himself the opportunity to handle mature, interesting roles.
I think you forgot about the best movie dynasty out there, bro
Tbh, I forgot about the F&F movies.
I love The Rock but he wouldn’t work as Indy due to his almost superhuman looking physique.
Off the top of my head, someone like Tom Hardy would work assuming he toned down his method acting tendencies but I would have little issue with a woman assuming it was a good casting.
If they make it a woman I hope the people that watch it melt like they stared at the open ark.
Making Indy as anyone else other than Ford is bullshit I don’t care if it’s male or female. We don’t have to reboot everything. Some things are great and should be left alone. This trilogy is great and should be left alone.
After watching Atomic Blonde, Charlize would work
Too old to be the headliner for a new franchise imo; Charlize is 42 and they're probably going to want someone for 10+ years to maximize sequels.
42 isn’t that old
Hell Harrison Ford is approaching 80 and he’s doing another one
Different for men and women in Hollywood though. I could be wrong, just my feeling.
Oh it would be a bold move but a massively applauded one
Her work in that movie is great
hell, Ford was 39 when Raiders came out.
Charlize with a whip
