Looks like there's no God.

There's no movie yet, either. God works in mysterious ways.

KOTCS was set in 1957. They are shooting Indy 5 11 years after that film came out. Harrison Ford is in the film. What would you propose they do?

Dude, I made that comment six months before Indy 5 with Ford was announced.
What my remark implied is blindingly obvious: I was hoping for a recast.

Unfortunately, with Ford on board the 60s are the only option.
My only hope for Indy 5 at this stage is that we get at least some flashbacks with a younger actor, who can then take over the role in future prequels.

I do realize this isn't likely to go down well with someone with your moniker, but frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

No younger actor. Spielberg said after Indy V, they're rebooting the series with a female as Indy.

No. He didn’t say that at all.

“And the famed director did admit that the series wouldn’t have to continue with a male lead, revealing that he has considered a female actor to take over. ‘We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that,’ he added.”

I know he's kidding about the name (since they wouldn't need to change the last name, regardless of whether the character is male or female), but there actually was a elderly woman at the hospital where my mother used to work, and her name was Indiana Jones. Her family was from the state of Indiana, and Jones is a very common last name. Obviously, based on her age, she was named long before the movies existed.

Oh, come on.

He was clearly joking, and his chances of getting involved post-Indy 5 are close to zilch, anyway.

Maybe they'll go the Death Becomes Her, route:



and make it a dark comedy.

I think (hope) that we should expect a different kind of adventure, i.e. a "Wits Path" adventure; something like Sean Connery's role in the Name of the Rose, with some cool action interspersed in-between ( ). So, I'd say late '60s, and maybe they could refer to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls - which happened, however, in the late '40s - and set the initial part of the film in the Qumran caves, with Indy looking for more scrolls, leading somehow to the MacGuffin.

Or else, they can rejuvenate Harrison Ford through CGI and make it an action-packed movie...

I guess that they're still defining the script, but they must have at least a few clear ideas about the plot and how it's going to be like, so let's wait and see!

Why would Ford be de-aged if Spielberg said this film takes place in the late 60’s?

Makes no sense.

I am still wrapping my head around the fact that Indy will be out adventuring during the time when Jim Morrison and Syd Barrett were making awesome out of this world tunes. It's weird, but not in a bad way. But I mean as long as it isn't featured in the film, it's not bad. But it's just wild to think Indy will be out there adventuring and Sgt. Pepper and Psychedelia and hard rock will be ruling the airwaves, women will be burning their bras and such. It's just fascinating to juxtapose Indiana Jones with this period of history; he has become the relic.

I could write down a long list of things that make no sense and yet made into KotCS (CGI-wise especially) Having said that, it's just an idea - probably senseless, as you suggest - but there are so many nostalgic fans out there who would love to see a young-ish Indy back in action. The nostalgia factor played quite a substantial part in movies like Rougue One, and I wonder whether there will be a short flashback scene at the beginning of the movie (cf. the opening of Last Crusade) with a rejuvenated Ford. It would connect so very well with our mental picture of Indy and make it easier for the audience to effortlessly empathise with the protagonist from the start.
But again, it's just a thought...

Seriously? That's amazing! I've heard of people called James Bond or whatever but I didn't expect that
