Hey, Lucas & Spielberg here are some locations!

You know, as long as Mr. Lucas is in "think mode", I thought that we could drum up some inspirational locales for the next installment of the Indiana Jones saga. I'm willing to bet that even if even Lucas, Speilberg, and Ford avoid this site, it seems inevitable that someone in their respective circles frequents the raven. That being said, why not offer something to help them on their way? Naive? Maybe, but stranger things have happened. Besides, I think it could be fun for us either way:

Gullfoss Falls, Iceland

Yellow Mountains, China

Several shots of The Pitons in St. Lucia (opening shot, anyone?):




(I apologize for the enormous size of some of these pics )

Cool idea for a new thread! I have a few location ideas as well, as I'm always in think mode when it comes to Indy

Wow, Trennas, those are awesome! I especially like the second shot, taken from the outside. Breathtaking. In that vein, how about some of the underground cisterns in turkey?

Yerebatan Cistern:




Can't you just imagine Indy canoeing through one of these?

Thanks! I love the cisterns of Istanbul as wel (they are also on my list), though it would be rather hard getting a canoe in there, methinks Altough, they did use the cisterns in the James Bond movie From Russia With Love, and they were canoeing in there as well; or was it a gondola? My memory has abandoned me!

Next one!











Underwater Monument of Yonaguni, Okinawa, Japan

I've seen the underwater monument before, and it's fascinating, but I'm not sure what Indy would do with it. Seems more like a Lara Croft type thing. Here's another inspirational locale:

Jain temple near Panamaram:

Well, since we were talking locations, I figured I'd throw in the underwater ruins as well! As for what Indy would have to do there; I had a few ideas, maybe you'll read about them someday.. if I ever get around to some Indy writing time

India is really a fascinating country! I would just go there for all the amazing temples!

last one for today:














Catacombs of Paris, France

Although Ankor Thom, Cambodia was featured in one of the Tomb Raider flicks, (I can't remember which one) there is still plenty that could be mined from it for Indy:

That's the Turkish region of Cappadocia; really weird moonlike landscape where people just carved houses from rocks. Indiana Jones and the Genesis Deluge is partly set there

More great locations overall! Keep em coming!

This one reminds me terribly much of the overgrown temple complex in Ceylon from the starting levels of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb!

It's too bad so much of Kingdom took place in Peru. Machu Picchu would make a great opening shot. It's about 45 miles outside of Cusco.



Might work if it was just the end of a previous adventure, ala Raiders. Maybe a Kingdom prequel, with Indy saying something like "I won't be coming back here any time soon".

Those are all great ideas, but I think this one will work the best:

Jungle Cruise, Disneyland


Woudn't even have to spend money on CGI animals when they are already there in animatronic form
And as a bonus there is a nice cobra there Indy could go up against.

I'm down for it. Just one more inside joke in an Indy film!

This is easy:

Skywalker Ranch. . ..



Some nearby Western place like Arches National Park


and lastly, and most exotically, Hawaii



When it comes to Indiana Jones, there are no boundaries (apart from Paramount's cost constraints).

I hope to visit at least a few Mayan/Aztec ruins in Mexico while I'm in California next year; has been a life long dream of me to do so
