Can we tell them the best part, please please please. They have a right to know.

Now this has re-ingnited my interest in all this conjecture. Not wishing to bull you up or anything Aaron but thanks for sharing a snippet of what you know of the Darabont script. Personally i wish if they'd gone with it, based purely on the likely high standard of the dialogue and development of the character in a deep and interesting (and hopefully darker, brooding, cynical even) manner that this writer would achieve; a development I feel is vital for this film, given the ageing of the character and the vast possibilities this presents.

True, the list of films in a similar vain is somewhat bizarre, worriesome even, but surely we dont want Indy IV to be a mere re-hash of its predecessors? I'd trust the screenwriter in particular to make it work somehow, and be true to the spirit of the original trilogy.

One of the many things i'm interested in is the level of action, stunts, set pieces etc in the script, as this is an area of concern for me and many others I feel. Can you shed any light? How did it compare in intensity to the previous three??

Also, I've long had the idea of the last part of such a quest would have Indy destroying the Garden - or in this case the Gateway - but from the inside. Perhaps this is the twist to which you refer Finn? Ho ho. As such, our Hero remains inside, or on the other side. The final view would be the light of the explosion intensifying as we look through the gateway, and as it does so that legendary silhouette is emphasised, and simply turns around and walks away from our view as the light becomes blinding. That'd be a decent grand finale I think! And he wouldn't be dead as such, which would of course always leave that little, tiny speck of a possibility of Indy V...

I like this. Maybe not so much the Stargate stuff but the Russians planting a new garden. I hope alot of this makes it to the new script. It probably will not.

I'd like to see Rose Byrne instead of Portman, Rose is several years older than her, but I've always thought, Rose looks a little bit like Karen Allen did in in Raiders......

Funny you should mention this. I happen to have a bottle or two of Rancor Repellant right here!

Lemme read the label. Ahem. "Rancor-Gone. Rancors eat the bait, take it back to their lair and share it with other Rancors which then implode. 100% Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back."

It's sold by Dolomite, a little-known division of Proctor & Gamble- "A Family Company" (tm)

What if it's a ruse? What if the story that Aaron has been discussing is the actual plot of Indy IV? Perhaps the whole thing was on the verge of being leaked by a disgruntled Skywalker Ranch employee and, knowing that all was going to be revealed, the Lucasfilm press machine decided to attribute the plot to Darabont's rejected script. Then, lo and behold, in 2008Indy IV turns up with a storyline that is strangely familiar to those that have been following the film's development...

I wouldn't be suprised if the story line was very similar to Darbont's script. Aren't the new scripts just revisions of a similar plot?

Anyways, I kind of like the story so far even though it sounds kind of lame. Thinking back on the previous three... all of the Indiana Jones story lines sound silly until you see the movie.

I'm sure "and this time he's bringing his dad" made a lot of people cringe at first. Probably the father-daughter relation wouldn't be part of the Indy 4 press, if it's revealed near or at the end. Still, most people would know about it walking into the theater, as with Superman Returns.

I love what I've heard of the plot so far! I bet there's a scene where Indy talks about his own mentor, then she mentions her grandfather whose private library back in Chicago inspired her to study archaeology, and they don't realize they're talking about the same person.

Mid 30's in the early 90's? Hmmm... seems doubtful she was conceived in 1936 on the Bantu Wind. Though if they have to fudge the timeline to create the perfect Indy 4 script, I won't complain.

Argh, that be from Ireland, 1916... Aye, that it be. My favourite quote in the episode actually comes from his daughter,

"We'll miss the tea and cookie presentation..."



'ello everyone, 'm Joseph Bromley, by the way... 'm, new here... Indy fan (perhap you figured that)... probably love Young Indy even more. Though I hate the new new edited versions, sacriledge!

YIJC were my fix as a lad, while the other boys were getting ratted on Nirvana - I was at home, watching the show, learning all about the wonders of 20th Century history... For all Mr. Lucas' recent Star Wars related faults, I owe the man so much.

Thankyou George, hope I enjoy me stay!

Cheers,
Joe.

She seems a bit young to me. If Indy is 93 or so, then that would mean he had her in his late 50s to early 60s. Seems a bit strange to me, I would think she would be in her 50s or so, and her kids would be in their 20s-30s. That could mean Indy at that time could be a great-grandfather. Though in one of the shows the kids call him grandfather.

Matinee, you are the coolest newbie ever!

She doesn't look familiar, and I can't find her screen credit anywhere on the internet. She looks like she could be about fifty, born in the 1930's, the possible offspring of Marion or Sophia. Especially Sophia, with the red hair.

Did you tape the credits, Matinee? Could you review them and find her real name and possibly even her character's name?

Will do Moedred

She does have atleast one Primary school aged child... but that doesn't mean she couldn't have other older children (in their 20's, etc)

Red hair.... I don't suppose anyone realised that red hair could be a Jones trait considering that the Young Indy's Dad in the series has red-brown hair?

Both of my parents have dark hair but I have some red hair in my beard and if my hair gets too long it starts to get lighter at the tips. My grandmother had light hair and she was Irish. They're both recessive traits which means they were carried by one of my parents but they didn't show. The question is would the people who decided to give Indy's daughter red hair intend it to be a result of his recessive genes? Usually in show business they are more direct than that. They would likely want the hair to in a way represent one of the parents like they do in most movies. Then again maybe they just chose this woman to play Indy's daughter without really thinking about that. Then yet again her hair isn't that red (or at least doesn't appear to be from this picture) and Indy's hair isn't very dark at all. I wager that if you put their two shades of hair colour side by side they wouldn't be far off.

Yeah, you're probably right. But, this is a likely reason why they cut Old Indy bookends from the series. If they left this particular segment in, Indyfans would be wanting an explanation in Indy IV.
