I heard a rumor that they are making another Indiana Jones movie. Has anyone else heard something to confirm/deny that?

As much as I like Indiana Jones (at least 2 of the 3 movies) I think Harrison Ford is getting a little old to play that kind of action hero any more. I haven't seen any of his latest movies. The last one I saw with him as the "sexy" star was Six Days, Seven Nights. A truly horrible movie which I never want to see again. I think I'll go now, and pop in The Last Crusade. I get to gawk at a younger Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, and River Phoenix. Yum.

On those same lines..I heard they want to do Gladiator2, and they're trying to figure out how to bring Russell Crowe back from the dead. Anyone hear that?

Gladiator 2 would be awful it will join such illustrious soon to be sequels like The Fast and the Furious 2 and Training Day 2

on the note of a new Indiana Jones ive seen it come up numerous times in the past few years
but now with the release of a new game around the corner. lucasfilm/lucasarts has said something about a movie
in the game indy is growing old so it wont be as action filled and the movie will probably be similiar

perhaps our local employee of Lucasarts can shed some light on this?

I'd kinda like to see Brandon Frasier take the role of Indy. Harry's just to old for it, now.

According to numerous articles, and Countingdown.com ( http://www.CountingDown.com/movies/indianajones4 ), Spielberg and Ford have come up with a story that they like.
quote:

Steven Spielberg told SCI FI that Indy's fourth adventure will have a supernatural element and that it will take place in the 1950s.

"You have to understand that [star] Harrison [Ford] is going to be 62 years old when the film [begins production in 2004], so we had to push the years into the 1950s."

As for whether the script is complete:

"We have a story," he said. "The story's wonderful, but Frank's writing the script right now. Frank and I and George spent weeks together pounding out the story. The story's all pounded out. Now Frank just has to labor through it."

So, maybe in 2005...?

WHY does Hollywood keep doing this? Sequels, sequels, everywhere sequels. Come on, can't we think of anything new instead of re-hashing the same things over and over? And some things are better left as they are, I can't imagine another Indy movie would ever be able to touch the originals, and the thought of a 62 year old Harrison Ford playing Indiana Jones depresses me... some things are just too sacred, when will Spielberg et al realize this!?

I love Indiana Jones... I think my favourite is "Raiders of the Lost Ark", but anyway...

PB, a great Harrison Ford movie is "What Lies Beneathe." In case you don't know it: Harrison Ford plays the husband of Michelle Phiefer... He's a biochemist, and tries to kill her because the ghost of a young woman he had an affair with gives her clues and well, yeah... she (Michelle) eventually learns that he had an affair with her and then killed her so she wouldn't find out, it wouldn't ruin their marriage, yadda yadda..

If you've seen it and didn't like it, well then... oops. [Smile]

Harrison Ford is indeed a good actor, but I have to agree that it is just far too late now for another Indy film, which would only exist as a cash cow for Spielberg and Co. ... mind you, I'd have to see the finished film before giving a verdict - some franchises can go on and on and on and still retain some quality (Bond is on film 20 now, and though there have been some drop offs, there have been many good Bond flicks, too).

It would be a better idea, I think, to consider alternative casting for Indy... but I feel sorta sorry for Harrison - first he was pushed out of the Jack Ryan part by Ben Affleck, and now he might be pushed out of Indy, too...

There was even an Indy RPG book, so I guess there are endless tales to tell.

actually in the book Jack Ryan is 50 years old and Deputy Director of Intelligence. Hes happily married to his wife, so it would have been a perfect role for Harrison, and the plot is grossly distorted in the movie..
and due to the 'success' of the movie Clancy decided to mass produce Young Jack Ryan novels that can be made into movies by Ben Affleck

those should be some quality movies [Roll Eyes]

as for the bond films being bad, i thought this last one was a big improvement over the crap they fed to us in The World is Not Enough.

Maybe they should make an Indy film that reflects Ford's advancing years: Indiana Jones and the Tube of Denture Cream or Indiana Jones and the Lost Incontinence Pants.

I just read an interview with Spielberg, and apparently Frank Darabont is writing the script... this is a good thing if you like The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and The Majestic...

And he pushed Alec Baldwin out of the original role ('The Hunt for Red October').

Yep, TSR that was brought out the 'Indiana Jones RPG'. The only redeeming feature of the game was that it trademarked the word 'Nazi'.
As for tales to tell, the only adventure that was ever published for it was 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'.

Anyone else notice that Indiana Jones can breath underwater for days at a time?

That and other things. When I played RPGs the term was "dice-liced".

Well, actually he lashed himself to the sub's snorkel, which couldn't go under water for obvious reasons. Those old diesel powered subs spent as much time as possible close to the surface 'cuz they had extremely limited endurance when running on batteries.

I certainly wouldn't mind a new Indiana Jones movie, but like everyone else here, I think Ford's getting a little old for the role.

Yeah, but I guess if Hollywood thinks Arnold has enough left in him for another Terminator movie, then Harrison Ford can be Indy again. Especially in the (relative to the other movies) future.
