Although, if we skip the whole re-boot idea and focus on the "formula" and moving forward, the newly introduced female lead could have adventures in the late 60's and early 70's; kinda like a "proto-Lara Croft". Old Indy can be kept around to make "Brody-esque" appearances in later movies. And the soundtracks would sell like hotcakes! Disney can roll all of its successful ideas into one new franchise.

I'm not saying it couldn't be done, but I doubt it's what Disney had in mind when they bought the property. Of course, my position is that they should eschew the reboot altogether and make an animated series.

I'd much prefer a live-action reboot set in the late 1920s. Cartoons just don't do it for me anymore (though, considering that I'm in my early 40s now, I guess that's to be expected, and I realize I'm probably not the target demographic. Nevertheless, I AM selfish, and I want something I'LL enjoy, so I say they should do the live-action reboot )

In today's world, anything under around 600 mil, unless it's an independent film or has a very very low budget, is generally considered to be a flop. And even if you get 800, 850 mil...that's not really all that respectable.

Let's say the budget is 250 million. They need 500 million just to break even. And if it only makes 850, that's only 350 million in Disney's pocket - pocket change for them.

But the budget won't be 250 million. Clearly the budget for KOTCS was mismanaged, but you can still make a great adventure/action film with a 150 million budget.

Usually a film is considered a box office success if it makes twice its budget. Even if it's going to cost 250 million (which is not) it only has to make 500 million to be considered a success.

SPECTRE was made with a 250 million budget and with a 880 million box office is considered a huge success. Indy 5 probably won't make that much but it's also not going to cost that much.

The only thing I can think of is there could be a flashback set in the 30s, and the new franchise lead is introduced that way. But I am against the idea of setting up the reboot in Indy 5. Let the reboot stand or fall on its own once it actually happens. Indy 5 should be about Ford's last adventure, full stop.


Lucasfilm cares about canon. The Force Awakens was a “reboot” of the star wars franchise, but it didn’t hit the reset button on continuity. Indy 6 will
Likely Star a new actor but still be canon with Fords films.

Well it would not be a “cartoon”, it would be a 3D animated series like The Clone Wars or Rebels most likely.

Making Indiana Jones a woman is just stupid, it's like putting it out there to satisfy a point of view or an argument. Let's make Tomb Raider with a male instead of a female, there you go ... stupid. Just create a strong female action/archaeologist character... why would you try to change an existing substantiated character into another gender ?? I think the Spielberg interview was things said and then taken out of context by the interviewer, IMHO.

With Star Wars, maybe. With Indy, there's not really a tradition of that.

I always consider those two shows to be cartoons. Maybe my terminology is wrong, but whether we call it a "3D animated series" or a "cartoon," it wouldn't really be something I'd care to see (though, of course, I'd sample a few episodes out of curiosity.)

One of My Favorite shows that didn't last that long was Agent Carter! If they make a female Indiana Jones in the vain of Agent Carter I would be fine with it and it could work. But then would a Woman Indiana Jones be considered a Disney Princess? Ultimately Its up to Disney not Spielberg.

No worries. Just for future reference a “cartoon” is “A form of 2D hand drawn animation”. Neither of those series are 2D nor hand drawn. Just like you wouldn’t refer to a Pixar film as a cartoon.

But I see what you mean for sure. I hope they stick to live action.

I wouldn't mind seeing a cartoon that showed off Indy's WW2 years. It's a great way to have a lot of adventures, given the serial esque nature of a cartoon, and, if fans wanted and he was willing, Harrison could voice a WW2 era Indy. I think it would be better direction than a reboot or a spinoff.

Ford has stated in the past that he's not interested in seeing the series enter into the world of animation. I can see where he's coming from but it would also open up a whole new world of possibilities.

Harrison Ford to make 10-12 million for Indy 5

Not a bad payday at all. How much did he make for the other movies?

Would that amount indicate he's leading the film? Or does the pay not relate to screen time?

Considering that Mark Hamill got paid more than Daisy Ridley for his appearance in The Force Awakens, I guess we can't assume the pay directly represents the amount of screen time. Having Harrison's name attached to Indy 5 is probably extremely important to Disney, even if his role isn't particularly large, so I'm sure they're willing to pay for it. (Having said that, though, I'd be stunned if Harrison's role in Indy 5 is as small as Mark's role was in TFA.)

That's before the profit share though. Ford made around $65M for KOTCS so its likely to be a similar amount overall depending on box office haul.

I do wonder, however, if this will lead to a rehash of the Darabont v. Lucas feud back in 07, where there were some disputes over screenwriting credits.

Best part of that (collider) article:

Quote:
...And that’s the thing. We don’t know the nature of Kasdan’s gig, so there are a few things we want to get straight. We aren’t sure if he’s rewriting Koepp’s existing script, or merely doing a two-week polish, or if he’s starting completely from scratch. We also don’t know if Kasdan is writing the script with a partner — perhaps his father, Lawrence Kasdan, with whom he wrote Solo, and who counts Raiders of the Lost Ark among his many credits. We also don’t know when Koepp left the project or when Kasdan was hired, be it before or after Solo opened below expectations, so it’s possible that he has been working on Indy 5 for some time now. As for who will ultimately get credit, we’ll leave that up to the WGA to decide.

...emphasis added.

Re: the Collider article. I remember reading GQ's profile of Harrison Ford back in October 2017, when he was doing the press junket for Blade Runner 2049. In it, he basically stated that the script was finished. I'd say it's safe to assume that Kasdan's simply being brought in to retool parts of Koepp's script, giving the time constraints, but this production has been pushed back so many times that it's hard to tell. There's definitely a lack of firm communication between Lucasfilms and the public, which is leading to the confusion shown in the article. Based on the (light) info we have, it's fair to say that Koepp left the project anywhere between October of last year and June of this year, which means there's at least an eight month gap for when Kasdan would've started his work on the script.
As I stated before, it seems that the film's production is sliding into KotCS levels of screenwriting craziness. That would be unfortunate.

Is Indy gonna be rewritten by Kasdan to be pansexual like Lando was?

Loled at this comment: "Indiana Jones and his diverse team of gender fluid/social justice warrior students scour the globe to locate and destroy the patriarchy."
