What I wouldn't Give for a JJ Abrams or Brad Bird Directed Indiana Jones! And I really liked Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull although I absolutely love Ancient Alien Stuff and Paranormal stuff as well why not mix it with Indiana Jones hey they had Shankara Stones and not many people complained about that...


Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney for $2 billion cash and the rest... you got it Disney stock. Lucas is now one of the arrest shareholders of Disney stock. To say he is not involved in the least bit is denial.

Affected ≠ Involved

Not to mention that the Indy franchise is just a drop in the the ocean of the Disney empire, sadly.

“George is going to be an executive producer on it with me. Of course I would never make an Indiana Jones film without George Lucas. That would be insane.“

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was an executive producer for Keanu 2016, Fist Fight and The Lego Movie...

Do you think he had creative licencing and input for those films, (and his many others) or is Executive Producing something else?

A executive Producers role varies from project to project.
From Wikipedia:
Quote:
"In films, an executive producer finances the film or participates in the creative effort, but does not work on the set. His/her responsibilities vary from funding or attracting investors into the movie project to legal, scripting, marketing, advisory and supervising capacities."
So we really have no idea of George's involvement in Indy 5.
He could just be a name on the paper or he could actually be involved with the creative work on the film.

Hi all.

The article on syfy.com is dated june 2016. Couple of months after that writer David Koepp has gone on record saying Lucas is not involved with the story.
See more: http://collider.com/indiana-jones-5-...s-david-koepp/

Kind regards.

Yes, I'm aware of this article, but it could still be that Lucas and Spielberg are collaborating on their end. It's not like Spielberg would specifically tell Koepp which ideas are from George.

This violates Occam's razor though.

Also, George Lucas sold all of his stock in Disney. For a brief time, he was the majority shareholder. But after he realized that Disney basically despised him, he sold the entirety of his shares.

Stock has doubled since he bought it. 37.1 million shares is now worth 4.1 billion. I must admit, Disney's been good to me too, but the decimal places are a little different than George's.

Because him selling Lucasfilm was his RETIREMENT plan. He's not looking for those things.
