Who are they afraid of offending?  The American Family Values coalition?  Those nutjobs are offended by everything. 

I have a feeling Indy might be going after some Muslim artifact this time around.  Just the way he phrased it.  That has the potential to piss off both Muslims and Christians.  And it's something with which a writer could eliminate various heretical elements.  But I could be totally off.

I bet they scrub the scene where Indy works for a Dutch newspaper that creates editorial cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.  I heard it was highly offensive.

A MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin or Maguffin) is a plot device that motivates the characters and advances the story, but has little other relevance to the story itself.

The Indy movies are full of them--the headpiece for the Staff of Ra, the Ark of the Covenant, the Sankara Stones, the Cross of Coronado, and the Holy Grail.

Holy ****...anyone see HF on the Emmys?  He could be the McGuffin-Indiana Jones and the Mummy of Indiana Jones.

Would you say that General Greivous was a MacGuffin?  I believe I would. . . .

I think Kenner made the original Indy toys. Does Hasbro have the rights to Indy? If so maybe Hasbro might do a VOTC style line before this movie is released! :)

From the Variety interview:

"Nor is Lucasfilm's exit from features instant or absolute. "Indiana Jones 4" is still in development. "Steve (Spielberg) and I are still working away, trying to come up with something we're happy with. Hopefully, in a short time, we will come to an agreement. Or something," Lucas said, without a great deal of enthusiasm."

I don't know about you guys, but if it's October 2006 and they 'are still working away, trying to to come up with something we're happy with', I don't see them starting production in mid-2007 as they previously stated in their Empireonline interview.

I don't see it happening at all.

One of these days, somebody that works for GL will wake up some morning and tell him that HF is too old and washed up to reprise his role as Indy.

Are you kidding?  Its George Lucas...the whole movie will be CGI...we just need for HF to be propped up in a chair so he can read his lines for the Animation...Sean Connery too..

As much as I would like to see an Indy IV come out, I almost hope they don't, just because I don't want them to "Phantom Menace" this trilogy too.

Screw that--I would hope that someone over at Lucasland would grow a pair big enough to tell George that he's too old and washed up to continue writing, producing, and directing films.

But, that hasn't happened in twenty, twenty-five years, so it's not gonna happen this time, either.

Not til someone else takes over as "boss" of Lucasland.

LF (and all of it's sub companies) has to be one of the largest privately held companies in the world.

Don't ya think?
