To tell you guys the truth, I think Harrison is more in shape than me in that pic. I've gotten flabbier and flabbier with each passing day!

Doesn't sound optimistic :

March 14, 2012 at 7:11am

Spielberg was also asked if there is any chance of a new Indiana Jones movie. "I would not make a fifth movie to try to prove any point," he said. "If we get a good story, I'll make it. If George [Lucas] doesn't think we should make any more, I'll listen to him."

He probably feels that people feel he needs to prove they can do better than KOTCS, or make an Indy film on the same level as Raiders.

No writer hired yet I agree as Lucas has still not finished his draft but you will not hear of it publically until its very close to being made as Spielberg will use David Koepp again to polish the script rather than do what they did on KOTCS and use several writers to generate ideas.

I expect development to go something like this:

1: Lucas pulls all his story concepts together & writes a very basic draft but Ford & Spielberg both agree on most of it.

2: Spielberg + Ford agree then Spielberg would hire Koepp to polish & finalise.

3: Lucas will look at the final draft then if he is happy they will make their announcements in public.

Until or if Lucas does his part nothing will change but unlike KOTCS it will be a closely guarded secret until Lucas/Spielberg feel happy enough with the script to go public & say its getting close to production.

With the exception of the Star Wars films Lucas has never written the first draft of any of the Indiana Jones films. Lucas writes 12 page treatments (approx.) Then sends that out to a writer. The only time Lucas would write a draft is after the writer sends it in and most of the time those were revisions, not brand new page one rewrites (with the exception of course of what became "Kingdom"). What Lucas is doing... if anything... is tinkering with an outline. Then it'll get sent out to one of the bigger writers.

How do you know that Spielberg will use Koepp? Just because Steven called him his closer? Closer for "kingdom" maybe. Spielberg has gone on to other writers since then, three other writers, for three other movies. Besides every Jones film has had a different writer/pair of writers every time... and especially after "Kingdom" I think they would probably look at other writers. Not to mention that David has a lot on his plate at the moment.

What you should probably expect is something more like this.

1. A press release stating that "so and so" has been hired to pen the screenplay for Indiana Jones 5.

2. A couple of months of waiting.

3. A press release saying Lucas has rejected the script.

4. A couple of months of waiting.

5. Repeat steps one through four several more times.

6. Harrison Ford turns eighty years young.

I think the new Indy has Indy's great-grandson going back in time to find the missing script for Indy V...

I'm sure I read that somewhere.

He should make one on the same level as Raiders. But he won't.

Aside from making the aliens into "interdimensional beings", which just meant giving John Hurt that one line of dialogue "Interdimensional beings, in point of fact", what did Lucas compromise on?

Compare the script and storyline of Saucermen from Mars to KOTCS, and there you shall see where he compromised.

Just because the scripts are different, how does that mean he compromised, rather than just kept reworking the idea (as evidenced by having several writers on it for 18/19 years0? From all that I've read, the big hang up was the aliens, he compromised by making them inter-dimensional beings, Spielberg caved, that was that. If there is more to it, I would need specific quotes to believe that George altered his vision much more than that to accomodate anyone. Sorry, it just doesn't compute for me.

Oh, and Indy 5 got greenlit today. YAY!!!!

Can't tell if Harry is happy or upset about it, though:

I think Indy's bro is pulling a leg or two.

There was something of a tradition in Britain that April Fools played after midday make a fool of the prankster. Though that never really made any sense to me, because in my book every day can be April 1st!

Ya had me! I got all excited, despite the fact I did consider April Fool's day. But isn't that limited to the 1st April? Hang on, it's still the 1st at your place. Sheesh, dummy me.

It's always the future in Australia. Apart from the culture, which is frozen in 1986.
