Title: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Nathan on November 21, 2008, 05:04 AM
Harrison Ford Says Fifth 'Indiana Jones' Is In 'Primary Stages' (http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1599660/story.jhtml)

MTV: James Bond is a franchise that's figured out how to ably switch between actors. If, in 50 years, they find another man to play Indiana Jones, would that sit all right with you?

Ford: The very simple addition of numbers would make it clear that in 50 years I will not give a sh-- at all. I will so not care.

MTV: Well what if you knew today that someone else would wear the hat one day?

Ford: Fifty years from now, they can do anything they want.

Title: A new Indy film in the works?

Not sure how much of a story this is.  It appears the info was floated back in the summer but this is the first time I've seen it on a major networks site. 

I'm not sure how good it could be personally.  I loved the 80's ones, but KOTCS didn't sit well with me.  We can argue time period and whatnot, but I just wasn't that into the story, although I did just enjoy it just for being Indy.

I still say they bunked it up by not milking the 1940's...  Indy in the OSS?  Indy running amok in the Pacific Jungles?  Indy a WW2 hero?  It'll be an era never explored I'm afraid.

Agreed x100. I liked KOTCS overall, but that scene with the general and the CIA agents just made me sad we never got to see a 1990s run of WW2 adventures like you mentioned. :'( We could have easily gotten four or five more films.

Post by: Brian on September 15, 2009, 03:06 PM
I liked KOTCS for what it was, but it wasn't anything near the original three for me either.  That said, I'm in the boat that would like to see more Harrison Ford Indy movies.  As for another actor, probably not.  Like it was already mentioned, it is too bad they left such a gap in between Last Crusade and Crystal Skull.  They could have put out at least a couple of other Indy movies when Ford was a bit younger, and hit some great time periods.  Oh well, I hope we see a fifth (and maybe sixth), before Ford is in his 80s.

Indy's Dad Returns? (http://movies.ign.com/articles/102/1026666p1.html)

Just another thing for the rumor pile at this point, but thought I'd pass it along.  You never know what could happen, maybe they'll have a way to bring him back - or maybe they'll set the next movie prior to KOTCS (as they did in the original Indy trilogy).
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Nathan on September 23, 2009, 09:07 PM
Nah, not going to happen. He's already 79 and if he wouldn't come back for KOTCS he's not coming back in 2011 or whatever.

To be honest, I wouldn't mind setting 5 prior to 4 (no Mutt, for one thing :P, plus the possibility of bringing back Connery)  but I think at this point it would just confuse people.

Good Luck.  I'm trying to think of any example where a franchise produced a sucky sequel then came back with anoter installment that was better than the last. "Aliens" is the only example that comes close and that was technically a first sequel outdoing the original.

Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: CHEWIE on March 6, 2010, 12:14 PM
I was pretty happy with Indy 4 - about the only thing that bothered me with it was the last 10 minutes.  Everything else, considering the age of the actors, was great I thought.  They captured the 80s movie magic a lot better than I had expected.

For Indy 5, I really don't want to see any sort of alien stuff either.  I doubt we will... that would be two films in a row with a similar theme... doubt it's gonna happen, but I would love for Indy to find out about some former Nazis in Brazil who are gathering some sort of religious artifacts, and the adventure leads back to the Middle East with Sallah... I'd be fine with Indy, Mutt and Oxley teaming up with Sallah for a finale to the series.

Count me in for being excited at the possibility of Indy 5 as well.  As others have mentioned, Indy IV has its faults, but I still enjoyed it overall.  Not as much as the "original" trilogy of Indy films, but it was still a fun movie for me.  I hope they get going on this next one before Ford is 90 :).

Well, with the tech from Avatar, can't they just make him any age they want now?  I'd love to see how a CGI 3-D Indy showing a youthful Indy would turn out.  If they can make that look good, they can make anything.

And of course it'll be in 3D because I guarantee you, someone is bouncing in their seat over the prospect of Indy whipping at the crowd so they scare the crap out of the audience.

Indy has been to the Middle East and India already, to the US and South America in 4 so I'm thinking he tackles an Asian mystery of some type.  Chinese maybe?

If not, get back to basics and go with another religious artifact and a trip around Europe again.  You can't go wrong with midieval castles.  Plus, you could still involve the Russians with a trip though Eastern Europe in full Cold War swing.

Title: Disney Buys Indiana Jones Distribution Rights
Post by: Phrubruh on December 7, 2013, 03:01 PM
I didn't know that Indiana Jones was not part of the original Star Wars deal but I guess Disney just bought the Indiana Jones franchise. I guess now they don't have to pay royality rights for the theme park rides or merchanise anymore.

Filming for Indiana Jones and the Revenge of Goofy will start next month.

Right. The distribution and marketing rights are now Disney's not Paramounts. Kind of like how Disney has distribution/marketing rights for most Marvel characters but not for Spiderman which Sony still owns.

A week after announcing that it’s purchased the marketing and distribution rights to future "Indiana Jones" movies from Paramount, Disney says it will be at least two to three years before the archaeologist goes on his next whip-cracking adventure. (http://variety.com/2013/biz/news/dont-expect-the-next-indiana-jones-for-at-least-two-to-three-years-1200952951/)

Still not an official "Indy 5 is happening!", but between Disney buying the rights (why buy if there isn't going to be an Indy 5) and all the rumors that said Ford would only do Ep7/8/9 if Indy 5 was part of the contract, it sure seems like a lock at this point.  Just hope they can find a good story.  Leave the aliens out of it this time please.

I don't know why they need Ford for Indy anymore. Why can't they do a James Bond or Doctor Who and get another actor to play Indy and reboot the franchise? Odds are it would much better than a guy my dad's age running around fighting Soviets and aliens. Bring back the Nazis as bad guys and put in some one new.

Indiana Jones is a like the James Bond series, there doesn't have to be continuation. They could reboot and bring back the nazis and someone younger to play Indy. They could rewrite the story for the old N64 game Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine or finish the script for Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings.

Nobody will be a good fit for the role.  It'd be like recasting Rocky.

It's a shame Hollywood continues to resort to churning out remakes instead of generating quality original content.  At one time they had to guts to give us a Star Wars and a Raiders instead of remakes of Buck Rogers and King Solomon's Mines.  And they earned billions of dollars.  But I guess the risk today is too high for the potential reward.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: EdSolo on January 29, 2015, 11:26 AM
It isn't a Hollywood decision as much as a Disney decision.  Disney isn't going to let the property sit idle after acquiring it.  A reboot is the only option after the last movie.  Ford can't carry the series anymore and they would be crazy to hand it over to Shia LeBouef.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Dave on January 29, 2015, 01:23 PM
I think Chris Pratt might be decent in this role.  Less interested in Bradley Cooper.  I thought Pratt did a good job in Guardians of the Galaxy.

I know it feels "wrong" to have someone other than Harrison Ford play Indy, but I think the character is great and the story lines are fairly endless (assuming they're done well).

I look at this kind of like the James Bond series.  Should they have ended the Bond series after Sean Connery stopped being bond in 1971?  I still think he is the best of all the actors to have played Bond, but I've generally enjoyed all of Bond actors and movies.  I think Daniel Craig in particular is very good in that role.

If the Indy movies are well done with a different actor, then I'm all for it.  Harrison Ford was in Indy 4, but that didn't help it be anything other than a really average movie.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Phrubruh on January 29, 2015, 01:39 PM
I see no reason to not use another actor to play Indy. Indy should be treated just like James Bond or Doctor Who and have lots of new movies and adventures. I'd also be for a young version of Han Solo. Sure Harrison Ford was the best Jack Ryan but I'm not sad that we have Chris Pine doing that role now.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: BillCable on January 29, 2015, 02:20 PM
I honestly think Indy stories are very limited.  There really aren't all that many lost magical treasures.  I think even Crystal Skull ran into that problem.  How do you top finding the Ark and the Holy Grail?  Crystal Skull's answer was to give magic powers to extra-dimensional beings, to very poor results.

Maybe he can look for the end of the rainbow next.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Dave on January 29, 2015, 04:07 PM
I'm sure they could make up all sorts of stuff that could be interesting.  Indy 2 was good enough when they used non-Christian relics. 

Indy 4 was just an uninteresting relic, or at least the story was told poorly.

They could do Egyptian relics, Asian relics, etc.

Heck, look how cool the intro to Raiders was when they were looking for the gold idol that didn't even have mystical powers.  Just a well told mini-adventure to capture an archaeological prize while attempting to not get shot with a poison dart.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Jesse James on January 29, 2015, 04:09 PM
I think an Indy storyline following his time in the OSS would be interesting, and get him back to his classic villain enemies, but I think it may work better as a TV series, and less as a movie with a beginning, middle, and end all wrapped into one thing.  Just my thought.

KotCS sucked.  Harrison Ford was Indy throughout, and true to form...  All other aspects of it sucked.  **** those monkeys and giant ants.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: solrac on January 29, 2015, 06:39 PM
I think they had a Indy like TV program in the 90's. The  new movie was a good "Could of been better" movie. These movies are based in the 50's so anything going on would be 50's interest's not present known information. To me Mesoamerican artifacts are far more interesting than African/Middle Eastern relics.

Post by: Jesse James on January 30, 2015, 01:46 AM
Yeah, the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles...  It was odd though and never felt quite like classic Indy to me.  I think someone non-Lucas might do better with it.  It was ok, it just wasn't what I'd want out of an Indy series I guess.

Indy as an OSS officer would be a lot more along the lines of a James Bond-ish thing, for me though.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Nicklab on January 30, 2015, 09:11 AM
I think it's been pretty well established that Hollywood likes a proven story.  Especially when they're going to put a lot of money into a project.  Is that a completely failsafe sort of formula?  Not necessarily.  Look at the run of Biblical epics.  Lots of those films have done very well.  But then there was Ridley Scott's recent effort, Exodus - Gods and Kings.  Solid director.  Solid star.  And a story that's a known quantity.  But it really didn't perform that well.

As for rebooting Indiana Jones?  I think I would prefer to just leave the franchise alone.  Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was not a good way to end things.  If it had ended with The Last Crusade?  THAT would have been an exercise in going out on a high note.  It was a solid Indy movie.  But these film franchises are big money, and Disney wants to get their money's worth.  So?  It's reboot time.

I saw something about the Chris Pratt rumor a few weeks back.  And I had seen something about Bradley Cooper being considered, too.  I think they could both fill the role reasonably well.  And I think from a story standpoint it would be interesting to take the timeline a little bit further back than Raiders and Temple of Doom.  How about starting off with Indy in the 1920's?  How about some of that backstory of him and Abner Ravenwood?

The key though?  A good script.  Time and time again we've seen plenty of movies that had good casts and great filmmakers.  But give them a crap story, like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?  Guess what?  You're going to end up with a dogshit movie.  Sometimes you wind up with a writer/director/producer who has so much clout that nobody will speak truth to power... like George Lucas.  And maybe they've gotten lazy or unfocused and their script needs some re-writing or punching up.

And that phenomenon isn't exclusive to Indy 4, but to lots of movies in this CGI era of movie making.  Go in with a ****** story and 9 times out of 10 you're going to have a ****** movie.  Part of the problem is screenwriters and directors who write around things to specifically shoehorn in special effects.  Everyone seems to want the same level of attention for their effects that something like the bullet dodge in The Matrix got.  Get over it.  Write a solid screenplay and let the special effects serve that story, not the other way around.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Brian on January 31, 2015, 03:04 PM
I used to think (specifically around the time of the rumors of Shia taking over) that I couldn't see anyone else playing Indiana Jones.  I will say, if they are going to continue/reboot, I could get on board with Chris Pratt in the role.  I used to feel like they should just end it (probably with Last Crusade), but I think this whole new world of Disney's Star Wars has opened my mind a bit about these things.

When we first heard about Disney wanting to make all these movies (new trilogy, spinoffs, TV shows, etc.), I came to the realization (as silly as it is) that Star Wars was going to out live me.  I don't mean to say that movies are so all important that you base your life around them or anything, but when the OT wrapped I think many were like "well, I got the whole story now", then that feeling continued with the prequels "well, I saw this through to the end".  Now, there is basically no end in sight.  I liked the prequels well enough, but the OT always stands superior to me and I realized that no matter how much Star Wars we get from here on out - or how much I like it - the OT will always be "my" Star Wars.  Similar to how Harrison Ford will always be "my" Indy.  I can let go of that enough to see a new person in the role, and for a new generation to have their own new adventures to follow (and I'll be there too).  If there has to be a new actor, I'd be down with Chris Pratt in that role.  He won't be Harrison Ford, but that doesn't mean they will be terrible either.

OFFICIAL!

FROM DISNEY:
Spielberg and Ford Reunite as Indiana Jones Returns to Theaters July 19, 2019 (https://thewaltdisneycompany.com/spielberg-and-ford-reunite-as-indiana-jones-returns-to-theaters-july-19-2019/)

Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.

“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”

I know some will be a little hesitant after the last movie, but count me in. The Indy movies have been second only to Star Wars my whole life, so I'm down for more. It will be interesting to see if Lucas will be involved. I remember at one time Spielberg saying he wouldn't do it without him, but maybe that has changed. Either way, exciting news. Also, hopefully more toys😊

Definitely going to see it, but I hope it doesn't follow the reboot/sequel formula of the last decade and isn't just a remake of Raiders with new characters.

Remind me who owns new Indiana Jones movies these days.  I see where this is posted on a Disney web site.  So is this like Star Wars where Disney can do whatever it wants with new films?

I'm guessing things are a bit more complicated as it relates to redistribution rights to the first four movies, but curious if Disney has full authority on this. 

Agreed that the last film was really weak.  I'm hopeful Disney is able to revive this movie franchise with some new energy.

All Disney at this point for Indy 5 (and beyond).

Link ->Disney Takes Control of 'Indiana Jones' Franchise for Future Films (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/disney-takes-control-indiana-jones-663704)

"Disney and Paramount have reached an agreement for the future of the Indiana Jones franchise, giving Disney control over all future films.

Paramount retains rights to the first four films and "will receive a financial participation on any future films that are produced and released," says the statement from the studios."

Thanks Jeff. 

I hope this also means GL has been fully bought out (like with Star Wars) and doesn't retain any creative rights.  He didn't seem to muck up Indy too badly even though Indy 4 was pretty weak, but its time for some new talent to lead this franchise.

Harrison Ford has shown that when it comes to promoting a film, he's a real pro.  He went above and beyond on the promotional tour for THE FORCE AWAKENS.  And Shia?  Ugh.  He's done some decent acting work, but I think studios are really wary of him because of his behavior issues away from the set, the plagiarism scandal and his social media antics.

My chief concern?  I just want a solid story this time around.  And I hope that Spielberg learns some of the lessons that were learned from THE FORCE AWAKENS.  Notably, the blending of effects styles.  Because one of the biggest jump the shark moments of KotCS was that ridiculous vine swinging scene.  OMG, that was so f***ing horrible!!!!  And not just because the premise was so ridiculous, but because IT LOOKED BAD!  I know that people point to the "Nuke the Fridge" scene as being beyond implausible, but I will take that over the vine swinging scene any day of the week.

Agree with this 100%. It is the only scene in the movie that I truly and fully hate. It's worse than Jar Jar being farted on.

I wasn't a fan of the giant ants or the jungle cutter contraption either. 

That whole jungle cutter scene includes the cutters themselves, a fairly dump sword fight, vine swinging, and ends with giant ants. 

The rest of the movie was decent, but this eight minute segment really drags the whole movie down for me.

It was good when I was a kid.  Watching as an adult, there are some pretty big flaws.  Most of the franchise characters become cartoonish caricatures, which is unfortunate.  Even Indy is buffoonish. 
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Jesse James on March 18, 2016, 02:19 PM
Bill said exactly what Matty was expressing.  Look at Marcus and Sallah at least.  Very unnecessary and nothing like their characters in Raiders.  At the beginning Marcus sort of plays a role like he does in Raiders but once he is integrated into the adventure later he becomes pathetic comic relief.  Take he and Sallah out, and you lose nothing and gain a lot.

I like TLC, personally, but yeah it's way weaker compared to ToD and RotLA.  For me I only hate Skull at this point and won't watch it.  Even it's figures kind of blow.

Comic relief in Indy should be somewhat limited.  Indy and his dad was plenty sufficient in TLC but they took it a step too far by dumbing down two secondary characters for no reason.

I could never get past kid and his Dad banging the same chick in that 3rd movie. That one thing totally skeeved me out. Plus WTF would his Dad have a thick Scottish accent? I didn't like Connery in that role.

I attribute that to Spielberg's deciding Temple of Doom was too  girm and his comments of how he horrible he felt by depicting child slavery (Villains can't hurt kids?). So instead he goes on and trivializes Nazis by making them fantasy movie villains...again. (He made up for it with Schindler's List later).

Self-parody for a franchise that was already part homage/part satire of a genre is a bad idea. Spielberg said "I had Indy's dad played by JAMES BOND." Yet, he didn't quite learn where the Bond franchise started to falter...self-parody.
Title: Re: Indiana Jones 5
Post by: Nicklab on March 19, 2016, 07:44 AM
I like "The Last Crusade", too.  I've liked it since the first time I saw it.  I never took it too seriously, and I appreciated the comic relief from Brody and Sallah.

As for Connery?  I think he played it well enough.  How do you possibly play the father of Indiana Jones?  And he showed that the way to do that was to depict him as smart, passionate about his work, and an absolute ballbuster with his son whose methods he finds questionable.  I think that having him be afraid of rats the way Indy was afraid of snakes was a little ham-handed, but at least it wasn't overdone.

I think that movie and the other Indy movies are a product of their times, along with the nostalgia that Lucas and Spielberg had for saturday matinee serials and the 1930's.  But does that 1980's meets 1930's sensibility work in the 21st century?  Obviously something was not working when KotCS came out.  Was it the story?  Or is this a type of film whose time has passed?

This.

I think KotCS was ill-received because it followed the Indy formula Nicklab points out, but you have to bump it up the 20 intervening years. There is no denying KotCS is intended to be a cheezy 50's sci-fi movie (as opposed to cheezy 30's adventure serial) updated to the standard of moviemaking in the 200X's (as opposed to the 80's.) I think everyone was expecting more 30's serial stuff. I respect the update for what it was, but then I was never a huge Indy fan, and my favorite is still Temple of Doom.

And following the formula, Indy 5 will be a 201X version of a cheezy late 60s/early 70s movie. If they go back to the 30's serial vibe, then they will be acknowledging the failure of KotCS and cashing in on the nostalgia.

Either way they have my interest.

Temple of Doom has grown on me as I've gotten older, after initially disliking it. Really the only bad part is Mrs. Spielberg.

Looking back, I think KotCS had some decent ideas, but everything decent was overshadowed by terrible characters and way too much CGI.

It was poorly done CG that killed KOTCS. The badly done jungle chase and monkeys. The groundhogs. The ant hill. The waterfalls. Why couldn't they have just gone to a real location more often and film? Marion looked old and had nothing to do. Mutt started off ok but just got stupid along the way. Just give me an Indy based on one off the video games and I'll be happy. Indiana Jones and Fate of Atlantis. I hear this one is going to be about the Bermuda Triangle.

If Indy's birthday is July 1, 1899 - they could set this Indiana Jones movie in the 70s and the "new" young character in this movie could be Mutt's son who is trying to find his grandpa to let him know about Mutt's tragic popsicle accident.

The problem is that his grandpa, Indy, has been missing for years, lost during an adventure to find the first Jedi Temple an ancient South American magic temple. 

The movie ends with Mutt jr. finding Indy hiding in the temple.  Mutt jr. slowly reaches out to hand Indy his long-lost whip......   >:D

I thought Mutt grew up to be Indy's biggest rival. They meet up at an ancient Peruvian bridge over a large pit. Indy hasn't seen him for years and wants him to come home. Mutt asks if Indy could do something for him. Indy says sure. Mutt runs him through with his sword and Indy drops the idol and falls off the bridge.
