Hold onto your fridge, it looks like Dr. Jones is going on another adventure soon. No obnoxiously long title yet, but it’s been leaked that the new script will take him (and Mutt) to the Bermuda Triangle, and George Lucas/Steven Spielberg will helm the fifth entry in the series. Reports say that this will be the final installment, and it will “stay true to the series’ roots, and won’t contain lots of state-of-the-art special effects.” Maybe.
That’s what they said last time. Then they opened the film with CGI groundhogs.
My hope is this will actually be pretty darned good, a triumphant return to greatness, like what happened when The Last Crusade successfully washed the taste of Temple of Doom from our brains.
UPDATE: Producer Frank Marshall tweets:
The rumor about INDY 5 is completely false. Nothing has changed, we are not shooting next year and still in the research phase…
Hmm. Well, if it’s “completely” false, why does he indicate the intention? If anything, this is more good news; they’re taking their time to write a good script.
