If they make it, I'll watch...  and most likely get sucked into whatever Toy Line goes along with it.   ::)

Like most, love the Indy Trilogy, and I think they ended it pretty well with† "The Last Crusade".† If Spielburg/Lucas/Ford think they might have something great, than go for it, but I get the feeling it's just another way for each of them to prove themselves they still got something left.

Also, Harrison Ford said recently in a interview (don't know exactly where) that he is absolutely sick and tired of answering "So, when are you doing Indy 4?" questions, and just wants to get the whole damn thing over with.

Just for reference, Ford turns 64 on July 13.

I read this article/interview with Lucas that was from TIME (posted yesterday the way it looks), and its kind of interesting to read.  He talks a bit about Indy IV in there as well, and sounds like he's done his writing portion of it and that will be that.  Of course, you never know exactly what that means, but its a pretty decent interview overall if you are interested.

And he will be older (in Indy 4) than Connery was in Last Crusade...

**** it - I hope they go for it and make it huge.  And I hope Connery comes back and there are Nazis (although a 63 year old Indy would make more sense in the 60's with some Soviets to fight...) and monsters and lions and tigers and bears. 

And I'll be there on opening night.

I think you have the roles reversed - George should direct and not write.

The prequel directing wasn't bad, it was the dialogue (or the story if you're talking about TPM).† †8)



I would agree that the directing was better than the writing.

I'll be waiting for it...Loved the first 3 and I hope for the best.

P.S. I hope this isn't another TPM. I don't think I could handle that.

There does seem to be a spike in the Indy 4 chatter lately.  We'll see if they actually get to work on it.  For me it's like listening to the Cub's say that Mark Prior and Kerry Wood are going to pitch soon.  I will believe it when I see those 2 pitching in a MLB game.  I will believe Indy 4 is going to be released when I see it on the big screen.

Yeah, after the prequels I dont know if I trust GLs judgement anymore...

I couldn't have said it better myself. Everything has gone to his head. I'd rather forget the whole idea than have one more with Lucas at the lens...

Uh. . .  Lucas didn't direct any of the other Indy flicks, and he won't be directing this one, either, should it come to fruition.

Thanks for the link, Brian.  Just in case that article disappears at some point in the future, here's the part of it that's pertinent to Indy 4:

Quote
R.C. If youíre retired, I guess youíll be less involved with an Indiana Jones 4 than you were in the first three?

G.L. Well, Iíve been working on Indy 4 for ten years. So Iíve been more involved, so no matter how you count it on this one Iíll be more involved than Iíll have ever been on the other three put together. Itís taken forever to get a script of it. Thatís my part of it.

R.C. Isnít Harrison Ford now older than Sean Connery was when he played his father in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?

G.L. Uhh, yeah. But the thing is designed for that. And I think itís funny, itís exciting. You know the problem there, which is not a problem, is that we donít have to make that movie. All we can do is hurt ourselves, all itís going to do is get criticized. I mean itís basically Phantom Menace weíre making. No matter how you do it, no matter what you do, it wonít be what the other ones were in terms of the impact or the way people remember them.

R.C. But thereís also no need to complete the holes in the epic.

G.L. We donít have anything like that. We just had a great time making those movies. And if we can have a great time doing this one and we can enjoy ourselves, and make something thatís entertaining to us, no matter what the world thinks, letís just do it.

R.C. But you also have to decide on the format, right?

G.L. In terms of what?

R.C.Do you say, "Dammit, Steven, do it in digital," and he says, "Dammit, George, Iím doing it on film"?

G.L. Pretty much.

R.C.Who wins?

G.L. Heíll win. Heís the director. The great thing about working with Steven is that we donít have agendas. We want to make the best movie possible, I want him to be happy. If he he wants to shoot it on film and cut it on a Movieola... Hey, heís got a great editor. Michael Kahn can cut faster on a Movieola than anybody can cut on an Avid. And I donít really care. But I do tell him, 'This is your chance to play with this and experiment with it and blame it all on me'ósay, ĎHe made me do it.í And then you can go back to film if you want. But he has relented after all these years to maybe cutting it digitally. Weíll see what happens.

Ummm, I know that. I was saying that I don't want another Indy flick IF Lucas is behind the lens....

But, uh. . .  he's not gonna be directing the next one, so your point is, uhh. . .  moot.
