Meh, I'm not really all that excited about Indy IV, I thought they ended Last Crusade perfectly and there was no need for IV,

That's how I felt about Return of the Jedi...

I, too, hope that Indy 4 is on hold--permanently.

No need for more adventures, and a sixty-five year old Ford running around, trying to pull off the same stuff he did in his thirties, would be more goofy than anything.

Just because they're all who they are,  just because they can make it--doesn't mean they should.

You can have too much of a good thing.

Soooo...what's the latest on Indy IV.  I had heard some pretty strong rumors a few weeks ago that it was all but dead.  Didn't know if that was because they hadn't agreed on a script and it got blown out of proportion or because it truly is dead ;D

Anyone ever given thought to the idea of Harrison Ford as Indy being replaceable in a Bondesque type of role?  I don't really want that either but I think some people wouldn't mind the franchise living on in some form

I don't think it's necessary for them to make this film. I don't care if it never gets done. I liked how they ended it with LC.

ehhh, i don't know about that. i'm a fan of the bond films, and don't really mind the change from actor to actor for the most part, but i think indy is indy and you can't really change him.

now, if they figured out a good actor to play a younger indiana jones, kinda like the tv series back in the day, that might be a good idea. or hey, with all this technology available, why not just make a cg indiana in harrison's likeness, but around the same age as he was back in raiders? no stuntmen, no injuries. and most likely, no good.  :P

Hmmm....

Lots of reports coming in that this thing is indefinately on hold due to some differences in the script again.

Sounds like everybody involved liked the Indy 4 script except Georgie, who after thinking on it, decided that he wants a better/faster/action-filled ending...  Maybe Indy 4 needs a Pod Car Race?   ::)

On a related note I just saw on the news that Pat Roach died on the 17th. He was the Nazi muscleman Indy brawled with in Raiders and the Thugee guard Indy fights on the conveyor belt in Doom.

I'm torn on this one, I love Indy, really love him, revisiting the franchise after 16 years could be hit or miss

I read in Time magazine that this is still supposed to happen.  Lucas says they are having a hell of a time with the script.  I can believe it if he wrote it.  He says in there that they were not going to do another Indy movie.  But then he came up with this "idea" and everyone loved it. 

The soap opera continues on this movie.  Personally, I think someone does not want it made that badly or it would get done.  It must not be that great of an idea afterall.

Ford eager to start new Indiana Jones film

Quote
Wed Mar 15, 5:53 AM ET

BERLIN (Reuters) -
Harrison Ford is ready to jump back into his favorite film role and begin shooting the fourth Indiana Jones movie soon, a German magazine quoted the Hollywood actor as saying on Wednesday.

Steven Spielberg and I now have a script in hand that we both like. I believe that we can start with the filming soon," Ford was quoted as saying in an interview with German lifestyle and entertainment magazine Fit for Fun.

The third and last Indy film, 1989 hit "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," starred Ford as the whip-swinging archaeologist and
Sean Connery as his bumbling father.

Ford, 63, was quoted as saying that he needed "to do a little practicing with the whip" to avoid injuries.

As much as I love the character, and everyone involved--I still maintain that the only good that will come out of Indy 4 is a possible renewed interest in the toy license.

As much as I love Indiana Jones and Harrison Ford, 63 year old action star is an oxymoron.

I wouldn't mind if Indy was now the professor/father and the movie is about his son. The big dark clouds of doubt for me circle around GL directing. I don't mind him writing the script but please don't let him direct this. If he gets to direct it then it will be like the prequels and this movie will be meh. He has a knack for OKing bad/cheesy acting..you know acting that looks like acting? ::)

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)
