Can Indiana Jones 5 be released before Paramount's 100th Anniversary of its name.

Today, May 8, 2012, is the 100th Anniversary of the founding of Famous Players Studio of what became Paramount Pictures in 2014. Paramount recognizes its 100th Anniversary this year even though they did not use a Paramount logo until 2014. Do you think they will release Indiana Jones 5 before the real 100th Anniversary of Paramount in 2014?

The short answer is no.

And the long answer is no.

Well, time is running out, so I don't think it will happen. But maybe by the 30th anniversary of Temple of Doom.

Oh wait...

Moon Tan, I think you meant to write: 1914.

Although I doubt it will happen, it would be a nice surprise.

If Spielberg is supposed to direct, then no, as he seems pretty booked with post/promo for Lincoln until 2012 and then for Robocalypse well into 2013 (plus the claimed JP4, Tintin 2 and Transformer involvements that look to happen before Indy V).

Not to mention the Lucas factor in this equation .

Personally, I think 2016 might be quite possible, though, if Indy V is seriously entertained by all parties...

Harrison will be 74 in 2016 six years shy of 80.

Which would still be 1 year younger than George Hall was when starting to star in YIJC, and there would be 19 years of mileage left to go before Harrison could fill the role of 93-year-old Old Indy himself *

Seriously, though: if Lucas goes into turbo boost with an idea until end of 2012, it'll then take at least 1.5 years for a fast-tracked script writing/sign-off, then one year for pre-prod, then production and post taking at least further 9 months if there are no scheduling conflicts, so we are looking at a release no sooner than 2016 - incidentally 35 years after ROTLA.

__________
* Just think of that newly re-edited YIJC release in 2035!

About that, Dr...

I'm starting to research how Christopher Ford died...just to see if there is anything on the horizon worth noting.

You have to take into account that his father died decades ago (thus factoring in medical advances since his death), plus the fact that Harry, as a multimillionaire star, has access to probably the best healthcare money can buy; His father likely didn't. And also that Harrison, while he smokes joints and probably does or used to do a line of coke or two, isn't a party hardy celebrity like Gable or Bogart. He's in great shape for a man of his age.

Can Indiana Jones 5 be released before Harrison's 100th birthday?

I think my title is more appropriate and asks a pertinent question: Can Indy 5 be achieved before Harrison's 100th birthday?

WOW, Raiders112390! You *really* are a flip-flopping contradictory FLAKE. Within the past year, you've said that Harrison is "old & weathered", "wrinkled", "long in the tooth", "ancient", etc.

Raiders112390
An actor's appearance kinda defines the character they're playing and when the guy looks older and weathered, their character is going to look the same way.

Raiders112390
You can still suspend your disbelief though when you see a built, youthful looking Harrison Ford do the things he does in Raiders, ToD and LC. But an old, white haired, wrinkled Harrison? Different story.

Raiders112390
And he was looking long in the tooth by LC. I stand by that.

Raiders112390
The point is, the man looks ancient now. He's 70. Indy 5 isn't going to happen. He's a few years away from the retirement home.

Raiders112390
I was pointing out the man aged badly. Accept it,...

----
After all that you've written, how can you NOW say that Harrison is in great shape for a man of his age and expect to be taken seriously?

A smart move indeed. So how did Christopher Ford (born John William Ford) die?

That was kinda funny. I mildly applauded in front of my computer.

Yeah, I mean it's just not gonna happen. At this point I would bet my mother's life insurance on it.



but then again I thought the Pats were gonna take the Super Bowl...
So sorry to me ma if I'm wrong.

Well, regarding that Chris Ford got 93, it's pretty safe to say that he simply died of old age, isn't it?

FACIALLY he aged rather badly. Body wise he looks to be in great shape. Anything to attack, stalk and try to run me off here.

I think Indy 5 has bigger problems against it than to tie in the Paramount logo perfectly.

True, but "old age" isn't something you can put down on a death certificate.
"Heart failure" or "respiratory failure"... those are more the like.
And while both are similar, they are both are very different deaths.
Also people do die from cancer or stroke in their 90's so...
Just trying to look out for any signs from Harrison is all.
Any breathing problems as of late Harry?

More flip-flopping..."Body wise"? You said that Harrison is a few years away from a retirement home. Do old folks get sent to a retirement home simply because their face is wrinkled?

If you're not stalking me, stop bringing up old posts to show where I've "contradicted" myself. I didn't ask you to. If I "flip flop", are you going to continue to point it out EVERY TIME I post? Answer honestly now.

Raiders112390, you aren't using the term, "stalking", properly. I don't know where you live nor the colour of your underwear. In a forum such as this, people get to know each other via what they post...and I've noticed that you contradict yourself very often. I want to know why but instead of EXPLAINING YOUR REASONS, you cry about being stalked.

Imagine if you had a friend who said:
"I love cats!" and then the next week they said, "I hate cats!"

Wouldn't you be curious about their change in opinion?

I don't see him as flip flopping Stoo. Perhaps how he explains himself comes out as such if you want to nitpick, but his meaning is the same. Which I think was... that although Harrison is in great health/shape... he has visually aged quite a bit. He may be in great shape but he's in great shape for a 70 year old. He still looks 70 and thus the difficulty in the suspension of disbelief.

I find it annoying when someone goes out of there way to find posts of a contradictory nature on a forum over something as silly as their opinion of how Harrison Ford looks. Even if he was flip flopping his opinion, maybe he is just indecisive. Is this a political debate?

On topic... yeah, uhm, it's not happening. I really don't think Indy 5 is going to happen. I'll be pleasantly surprised if it does (even if I feel it probably shouldn't be made at this point).

And as I've told you gents before, if you both can't play nicely, use the ignore button. Finding faults in an argument is fine, but attacking each other ain't on. Doesn't matter who started it. Stoo, if you find someone contradictive, there are other ways of going about arguing your point. And though you are a zealous fan, sometimes it may serve you well to be more subtle in your criticisms of others.

And Raiders112390- the upkeep wouldn't allow anyone to be "run off" the Raven by another member. And all Raveners are seen as equal. It also may serve you well, to ignore any attack or simply report it if you feel a post has gone too far. On the other hand, it also may serve you well, to take time to think a little before posting- I know I read a lot more posts, than I actually post.

(I don't mean you No Ticket, I don't find any fault with your post).

The bolded is exactly what I meant; You said it better than I could. He is in great shape, for a man of his age. For a near 70 year old he's in better shape than most people his age. But when that comes to playing a "man of action", a fighter, physical character like Indy, he looks ancient. The white hair, sagging jawline and wrinkles do not help, though those could be worked on with make up and hair dye.

Spielberg has said they'll never be apologetic about Harrison's age, or try to hide it, and nor should they.

I can understand the apprehensions of people such as Montana about an older Indiana Jones, but for me it's not a problem. I really want to see more of the older Indy. My only worry is whether George is still capable of doing the character justice.
