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.

He just doesn't want to do it anymore. George just wants to do small budget films no block busters. I think he just got sick of being in the lime light and being ridiculed for The Prequels and KOTCS I happen to love The PT and KOTCS and can see where he is coming from. Sometimes fans take the hate of film way to far.

He has been saying that since at least the 90s. Where are these films? Say what you want about Coppola's experimental output, but at least he's walking the walk.

He did do the Red Tails film like 4, 5 years ago.

Spielberg looking at Indy and West Side Story as his next directing vehicles.

Well, more of the same old news I guess. Idk if that should be called news I think we already knew that but some sites like to run things as exclusive because they can I guess.

He did not direct it himself, and it was a mid-range budget movie, not the type of small, experimental film he's alluded to.

But the difference with say now and when he was doing the prequels and right after, We can talk all we want about shares of stock all we want but Disney owns the company now and Disney calls the shots Like It or not. I think when Disney didn't use Lucas's Story outlines for The ST Lucas wasn't happy with that and that I believe was when Lucas was like I don't want any part of Lucasfilm anymore unless It Is a passion project I am making which I would love to see Lucas's Independent Passion projects as well hopefully someday he does that. I absolutely loved Red Tails I saw It In the theater It felt like I was flying In the planes with the red tails That Is how realistic it looked! I guess Disney owns Red Tails now to!
