Welcome to the Indy 5 forum!

Welcome the The Raven's latest forum. You - and the filmmakers - have been discussing Indy 5 for years, and those threads can be found here. If we missed one, let us know!

Speculation about Indy's possible small screen future excluding video games (animated series, motion capture series, live action series, webisodes, holiday special) still belongs in the General Indiana Jones Discussion.

You know, I have a T-Shirt that reads: FINALLY! May 22, 2008.
I kind of want one that reads FINALLY! August 11, 2010.

Seriously, I thought this forum would be created a while ago.

But, it's here now, so yay!

When I saw that it got its own forum, I thought there must be a good reason for that - good news that it's moving forward or something like that - but, well, that was just wishthinking.

I just want to say that it's a great idea to make an Indiana Jones 5 subforum! Even in times like these, when news is scarce, it gives me the feeling there's still progression. Plus, this way Lucas and Spielberg might feel some more pressure to hurry up. Hooray for the Raven!

Hey, why did this happen? I hope administrators weren't just getting tired of people starting new Indy 5-related threads outside of the general discussion one. That's setting a dangerous precedent

No, long beforehand, just about as old as the forum itself, back at the turn of the century. But there was a decade full of news and rumors and even scripts in that timeframe, so that made sense.

Now, I have been awake since half 7, and I have been on the computer all day,(it's been raining outside) and Been looking at the Raven every so often,for the past 13 hours.

And I have only just noticed this forum now.
I won't be thick like this for long, i'll be back at school next week


Any way, I am glad there is a forum for this, it saves cluttering up the general Indy forum with things on Indy 5.

Ahhhh.....Did we just get an Indy 5 announcement or something? Otherwise why create a forum for a movie that may not happen?

It's a frequent, specific, yet varied, topic of discussion. That seems to me to be the only requirement needed to have a forum.

My answer? Because the speculation before we had any real knowledge of the fourth film was in many respects more thrilling than the film itself.

Although IAdventurer01's got it just about right too.

That's what I asked myself 10 years ago when I first discovered The Raven and a section called "Indy 4" was right there where it is now, second from the top.

For the first seven years, it was kind of depressing, really.

^I think it'll be even more depressing in a few years when it's obviously no Indy 5 will ever be made.

And this message comes from a confirmed cynic. I have a feeling that we will wish Indy V was never made. What we hope will be an apology for failing to hit all the marks in KOTCS, may be another nail in poor old Indy's coffin.

But, to mis-quote from Monty Python, "Always [try] look on the bright side."

I don't have much hope considering Harrison will be about 70 when they start rolling. But if anyone can pull it off its Harrison. He proved he could still play Indy at 65 so we'll see...

Not years, only a few month will be left, before it'll be even more depressing.

Absolutely. I can honestly say that I enjoyed many of the dramatic possibilities that were put forth on these forums far more than my first viewing of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. In my mind, some of the ideas that have been discussed here would have made far better films than the one we finally got.

When I saw an Indy 5 sub-forum I assumed there must have been some big breaking news and was excited. Oh well, I still think Indy 5 has a decent chance of being made, even for filming to take place next summer. I know one of the scriptwriters said in an article "we are not planning filming next year" but that was in response to false gossip stating it was going to be filmed next year as a point of fact. So that statement should not be taken to mean filming will not take place next year but rather that nothing is definitive.

That being said if filming will take place next year the official word would have to come before the end of the year. KOTCS got the official word out of a green light a few days after Christmas 2006 if I recall.

Cowboys and aliens could be seen as a dress rehearsal for Indy 5 proving he still has it, if he can pull of playing a cowboy at 68 years old in that movie he could pull of playing Indiana Jones at 69 years old next year.

By request, here's another link to my collection of Indy 5 chatter from people who would know. Maybe someday we'll move it to the main site for rumor control. Just the facts, no commentary, not even here. If I missed something let me know!

Variety: "Confirming one of the most talked-about deals in Hollywood, Paramount Pictures will finance and distribute worldwide the Lucasfilm production of Raiders of the Lost Ark, along with four sequels to the property."


That's the most interesting find in that link, it confirms the "five films" rumor that has existed from the very start. Granted in another thread people already stated that it probably just gives Paramount the right to distribute the films if Lucasfilm chooses to make that many and its not an obligation to make five but perhaps its enough to convince the powers that be that a fifth films would just bring the sense of psychological completion for the franchise.

When I was a little kid around the time of Last Crusade's release I remember hearing that there were supposed to be "five Indiana Jones movies" in all. Then again this was the around the same time I first heard that Star Wars is supposed to have "nine episodes" so both are perhaps examples of Lucas doublespeak. However the former goal is certainly much more doable than the latter.

First look at theRaider's Indy 5 news index!
Pretty much the one I've been building for years.

Hats off to you for this, Mr. Dred. I have been to your livejournal page MANY times, and directed plenty of others to it. I'm glad it has a home here as well.
