What kind or species of Indyfan would want to see Indiana Jones in a supporting or cameo role? What the flying-f**k is wrong with you? I want all Indy or none at all. Anybody who even attempts to rationalise this idea should go rent Caravan Of Courage. Unless, of course, you already own it. Spin-off, my balls!

Holy Smokes!

Conflicted.......so very conflicted....

Most me is screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! It's Indy's series - he needs to stay front and centre!

but then.....

Harrison is 65 now.....even if they start the scirpt IMMEDIATELY, and they all approve it, and they shoot straight after Speilberg's Lincoln it will be at least another 18 - 24 months.....by which point Harrison will be just TOO.OLD.

And lets face it - if they produce a script that fast - it's bound to be crap..

And while George's plan is to allow Shia to handle the action and therfore get around Ford's years - who really wants to see that?

KOCS is compramised enough by Mutt - and I say this as someone who actually approves of his inclusion as Indy's son - but Mutt has got a major action sequence of his own in this - something granted to no other Indy sidekick - did Sallah get to fight Nazi's in a set-piece, did Marcus?! No.

So while I want to see more Indy I don't want it if the price is seeing Harrison relegated to the sidelines....until Indy is known more for being a wise side-kick rather than the hero

BUT...this is Hollywood talking

And ALL of the principals love Shia - including Harrison, maybe especially Harrison - I've never see him so warm towards a co-star before...

So this...just...may happen..

And we geeks will watch it - just like george knows we will

But ultimately ...in my heart of hearts...I belive Spielberg will be the one to deep-six this

He wants to move on as a director - he's already said numerous times this was a fun, but unneccessary return for him

So fingers crossed he says NO.

Seriously geeks, get them crossed

CHIVAS OUT!

Yes, why can't Lucas let Indy and Star Wars just end and make something new? He has all the money in the world and he still keeps milking these two franchises to death.

Deal with it.

Do keep up.

We're not talking about KOTCS, you dullard.

We're talking about the possibility of a sequel where Indy plays second fiddle to a weedy little prat like Mutt. That's just not acceptable to anybody with a brain who cares about this franchise.

Considering that Indy 4 is made and will be out in a week...and with the possibility of the series continuing as Mutt adventures if Indy 4 does well.............

I hope Indy 4 now bombs at the BO.

Mutt = BBO.

This concept is far better than recasting the role of Indiana Jones a la James Bond. A spin-off series with Mutt is a perfectly viable idea.

If for some reason Harrison wants to play some part in it, then good for him. He loves the Indy character and it's obvious.

If he doesn't want to do it, then that's perfectly fine too - you still have a perfect vehicle to continue with a new series in the same tradition as the Indy flicks. The "Indy" formula works - it's a formula that should be kept alive throughout the coming decades.

A very salient point. Lucas has now given the doomsayers all they could ever need to trash Crystal Skull in advance, which could well keep less loyal orknowledgable fans away from what should be a great movie.

I know what we're talking about. But some are still crying like asinine babies about Shia even being in Indy 4 and now their panties are in a wad over a Mutt series that is only an idea in Lucas' head and far from a reality.

The lesson here is to not cry about imaginary things. Now, step off, son.

I cant wait to read the talkbacks at AICN when they hear about this. This news is the equivalent of AICN finding the fountain of youth.

What's wrong with just ending a franchise? Why does it have to continue as a spin-off or relegate main characters to secondary roles in order for the franchise to continue? I know the realistic answer is money but can't the creators of this fantastic series have enough respect for what was done already (including KOTCS) and end it when the time is right?

I have no issues with Mutt Williams in Indy 4.

Now go change your diaper.

There's usually a 5-day lag for AICN-time.

I know. Why can't Shia go do Transformers 2,3 and 4 and stay the **** away from Indy?

There's nothing wrong with it. Those who love Indiana Jones/Harrison Ford can let it go with grace.

It's not like this isn't the first time this has happened with an iconic film character. Republic Picture's, Son of Zorro (1947), continues the adventures of Zorro with one of Don Diego's descendants. Two years later Zorro's grandson takes over the whip and black mask in Ghost of Zorro.

As for the cries that the Star Wars Prequels show Lucas has lost his mind.... WAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH! Sorry they weren't the prequels you wanted but the success of the films both domestically and internationally show that the whining, rants of a small but very vocal minority were ignored by the general public.


Yancy


Exactly, It's not like Star wars died..In fact, It created a whole new Generation of viewers...Had we all still been kids in 1999, we would have LOVED it...I honestly do not know what people were wanting with the new trilogy, the same old stuff as before?

Mutt Williams is not worthy of taking centre stage off Indiana Jones.

Since you obviously think he is, I will now place you in a mental box marked: IDIOT, and disregard everything you say in future.

This is hardly a shocker, people have been anticipating this for months... As soon as Shia was attached to the movie things started to seem suss.

Yet it still manages to be shocking. I can't believe he came out and admitted this film could be a stepping stone for more films centred around a whole other character and a whole other actor.

The idea of Harrison 'guest-starring' is even more horrible. I hope he gives George a slap.

LOL! GREAT point.

I'm going to preface my next remark by saying what I said previously, I have great respect for George Lucas and I admire him and his accomplishments greatly. I actually enjoyed the "Star Wars" prequels (for the most part) despite all of their flaws...so...no, I'm not a Lucas "hater".

But...sometimes I think George Lucas might be borderline BiPolar Disorder. Of course, a lot of people will attack me for saying this...and, no, I don't have any psychiatric credentials or training...so, I'm not being entirely serious when I say that. But, like I said before, sometimes some of what Lucas says and does comes off as classic bipolar disorder behavior. I'm familiar with the symptoms because three people I love dearly have been diagnosed with the condition.

So, whoever wants to can proceed to bash me and my comment all they want. I'm not trying to come off as condescending or haughty or arrogant. Just an observation on my part.

Hey, I found a great amount to admire in The Stars Wars Prequels, so I'm not an automatic Lucas-basher, but I hate and dread the possibility of Harrison Ford essentially playing Sean Connery in the next Indy movie.

Somebody take out a contract on the flanneled one before he does any more damage.

Shia as the lead and Indy as the sidekick...ugh. Let the series die with grace, which it did with Last Crusade.

It's already a tall order for Indy 4 to live up to the hype thanks to "aliens" so the guy should just know when enough is enough. My hope is that Indy 4 is great and then it's over.

He already took a dump all over Star Wars.
