Wow. Weighty arguments here tonight... and I'm not touching that.

I was looking for something unrelated when I came across this one, that I didn't see in the Raider archives.

http://deadline.com/2014/06/star-war...spital-787779/

It's an offhand mention of Disney plotting another Indy film, in Deadline's article about Ford's leg. Nothing more than that, but I figure that's about as informative as any other rumor in the last year, whilst coming from an actual trade reporter instead of a rumor site.

Sony's security was notably abysmal, while Lucasfilm kept Strange Magic secret until 2 months before release. The searchable internet is still just the surface of an ocean.

It's been a year since Marshall tweeted from the Indy office, so maybe they've at least put some posters up. More recently he tweeted there would be no news until there's news. Indy 4 news brought a decade of fan heartbreak and Darabont describing a "kick to the nuts" ...there's no reason to repeat that.

Here's the rest of the Variety piece: Iger said "I keep telling J.J. Abrams this is a $4 billion movie." Every night before bed. No pressure. Kind of important right now.

Bob Iger is the Chairman & current CEO of The Walt Disney Company. He runs the entire empire. Alan Horn is the chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. Details to be sure, but they're important. Both men recently had their contracts extended into 2018.

Take Iger at his word. They will tell you if anything ever happens with Indiana Jones, but they have repeated ad infinitum that Star Wars will be the barometer of their success following the purchase of Lucasfilm. Nothing will happen with the red-headed stepchild until the receipts on Episode VII are tallied. Any real work on another Indiana Jones picture is a year to two out minimum.

Cnet is reporting that it wouldn't have mattered what Sony Pictures' security was like. The malware would have penetrated some 90% of companies, and possibly challenged government apparatuses.

re: Strange Magic

January and February are dump months. It's going to really, really suck (based on that trailer) or has such a limited appeal that there wasn't anything to tease. Either Disney and/or Lucasfilm is probably contractually obligated to release it.

Where in my post do you see any thing that said I thought it was happening soon?

I'm just pointing out an article, no need to go all condescending "stomp out the aberration of believing the film will happen!" on me.

Probably. Maybe the project sat on the shelf until a lull to keep people employed. I wouldn't call it ill conceived: it should at least look good like Rango. Lucas always aimed a few grade levels younger than the rest and it's usually paid off. Maybe it will grow into a cultural touchstone like Nightmare Before Christmas and in 15 years theater students will still be wearing the merchandise... well there goes my credibility.

But seriously. Strange Magic was Lucas' last project as Lucasfilm CEO. He was the biggest hindrance to Indy feature story development from 1992-2012 and he's been replaced by Indy producers. It's a good time to be optimistic.

Meanwhile Latino Review is stubbornly clinging to their 'Indy Recast' rumor.

The writer of that tweet is from Latino review. And the way he describes it...'we told you before', is a bit condescending, a bit know it all.

To be clear, he leaked some Terminator Genisys trailer images, plus a terminator genisys trailer description as well. Paramount was sending cease and desists to sites to take them down. I call that legit leaks.

He also leaked some shots of 'chappie' and gave a jurassic world trailer description. (Which was how i found the guy)
This is very naive. Just because someone sees a trailer in advance doesn't automatically mean they know everything. Distribution employees regularly see trailers before the public. It may seem like an "insider" with "legit leaks" to you...but it's not.

"For now"? This is a status quo because the situation hasn't changed. The same thing was said over 2 years ago.

Funny how 10 days previous you were implying that Indy 5 was on-the-table because some schmoe had seen previews of other films. Take your 'tweets' and shove them straight up your you-know-what.

That wasn't very nice...

Also, I may have been misguided in trusting that guy, but Variety is a legitimate source, I've heard. And much more legitimate then that other random twitter guy. But what Variety said seems to be the case that SW is getting priority over Indy, and right now the big news magazines are only just now realizing that because they spent the last 2 days only focusing on the star wars news.

Nothing Bob Iger said implies Indy 5 is not planned.
We already know Star Wars will release first. Why on earth would he announce Indy 5 in a interview?

"Star Wars" taking precedence over Indiana Jones is not news...and you also started a thread about an incorrect "Variety" report. It's appreciated that you want to drop bits of info but don't do it just for the sake of doing it (without any basis other than: "I'm a popcorn-munching, sci-fi movie-goer participating in the rumour mill").

I can't think of a better statement to show how comically lacking we are in anything solid to hang our hopes on.

Thank you, I attempted to make this simple point, before being dissected by a team of Sigmund Freuds! I've also never said it will happen, with or without Harrison. I continue to stick with my statement, nothing will move until they have a script. Schedules are irrelevant until there's a script. And again, Iger is focused on Star Wars right now for good reason. Let's not forget that never was an Indiana Jones film shot on top of a SW film back in the day. There was always at least some time in between for the LucasFilm principals.

Very true, and with SW due to take up the next 6 years or so then I wonder when Indy will come to the fore.

Disney is a huge corporation.
I don't think they are unable to make Indy 5 while at the same time making Star Wars movies.

Not a lot of time, though. "Raiders" was in pre-production while "Empire" was still being shot and "Doom" was being prepared when "Jedi" was in post-production. Episode 7 wrapped filming over a month ago so they could've already started on a new Indy movie if they really wanted to.

A new movie could be done between, just like before. "Raiders" started filming a month after "Empire" was released and "Doom" started filming a month before "Jedi" came out. If Disney stopped being so myopic, the cameras could start rolling about a year from now.

I had a think about it when I was posting on another forum about the same topic and I think they will want to make one more with Harrison. My reasoning behind that is he is currently on a run of Star Wars followed by Blade Runner 2, big high profile releases leading up to another with Indy 5 possibly.

But the Star Wars schedule could get in the way, especially if Han Solo survives TFA and is due to appear in 7 & 8. But looking at what happened with the time to film the latest SW then I think you're right Stoo and they could squeeze another one with Harrison in.

The interesting thing will be if Disney feel the need to involve Spielberg and Lucas. They don't have to. Arguably after KOTCS it may benefit some new ideas?

I know where you got that line Stoo, ha.

They should make a trilogy and shoot them all at the same time as they did with "Back to the Future" 2 & 3 and the "Lord of the Rings". Squeeze as much as they can from Harrison. Sooner the better, agree with that. Chop, chop

Star Wars, Bladerunner, and Raiders all came out in the same time anyways so it can happen again. That was one of my favourite periods in cinema and I can't believe it might repeat itself.

I do not for see Disney making a final go head before they see how Star Wars does out of the gate. I kind of think that's what Iger was alluding to.

GERRY-BABY! Yes, it's true, I got it from Gerry-baby on a Skype call shortly after the Lucasfilm purchase and used his analogy here right away because it was so perfect. That was 2 years ago (see: this post), before even knowing my buddy had secretly joined The Raven!

Wouldn't that be nuts if each of the 3 new entries came out in the same order as 1980-82? It would be like our early teen years all over again, except without braces and less hair!

Agreed, with the emphasis on "could" because I was pointing out scheduling possibilities (rather than probabilities). It could be done...but likely won't.

Why would "Star Wars" be used as a measuring stick when Ep. 7 is going to be a $ure-fire money-making $en$ation even if it stinks? I don't see the connection because Indy & Star Wars are 2 different series.

Imagine the Disney board of execs saying, "If this new Star Wars movie doesn't deliver big, there's no way in hell we're going to make THX-1138.2 and Even More American Graffiti!"
