Latest updates

27th May 2002: Indiana Jones 4 Update:
MTV have been talking to George Lucas about Indy 4, and he had the following to say,

"I'm working on a story right now," Lucas said, "I've got something that both Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford like.

"We're in the process of hiring a writer, and hopefully we'll be able to start shooting ... not next year, but probably the year after. It'll take a while to write the script and all that sort of thing."

Another name that has been coming up over the past few days is The Shawshank Redemption writer. director Frank darabont, who may pen the screenplay for Indy 4. This has neither been confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm as of yet.

8th May 2002: Indiana Jones Update:
Aint It Cool News report that Sean Connery will return as Henry Jones' in the fourth Indiana Jones movie. A prime time news programme on Canale 5 in Italy revealed that Connery will return as Jones's father. Read the full report here.

The word is that Spielberg, Lucas and Ford are after Shakespeare In Love writer Tom Stoppard to write the screenplay for the fourth Indiana Jones movie. Stoppard has just finished rewriting on Harrison Ford starrer K19: The Widowmaker for director Kathryn Bigalow.

And so the rumour mill starts once again......On US show Entertainment Tonight, George Lucas and Harrison Ford were interviewed by Leonard Matlin. The question of 'whether Indy 4 is going to happen' came up and Ford replied,

"It's going to happen. It's going to happen. We have what we all believe to be a good idea. There's a lot of work ahead of us, but we are all looking foward to it."

And then this came from the mouth of Lucas himself,

"If I finish up with Episode 2 this week I have to begin work in INDY 4 next week."

So here we go.........................................

Having been away in Prague all week, I haven't been able to update on news concerning a forth Indy film. At a post-awards party after the Golden Globes the other nigh, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford apparently confirmed that they will do Indy 4. In fact Spielberg said that he will concentrate on the film as soon as he completes the Tom Hanks vehicle Catch Me If You Can. Spielberg said, "We have a title, but we're not ready to announce it, I will give you one clue, though. Kate is in it" Spielberg reffered to his wife Kate Capshaw, who appeared in Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom. Ford also commented, "It was always about getting the right script, and now we have it...There's one left in me. The question is whether George (Lucas) and Steven (Spielberg) do". (thanks to Dark Horizons).

Reports have been coming in all day that Paramount may have lost the rights to the Indiana Jones movies. Well, production rights to release a fourth movie anyway. It seems that they only had the sequel rights for twenty years, which has now expired (as ov November), so the rights for a fourth film are available. The news came from an interview Steven Spielberg gave to Starlog and Empire magazine. '"he and Lucas are having problems with Paramount in getting the fourth Indiana Jones installment launched". So the rights may end up with Spielbergs Dreamworks, depending where George Lucas, who owns the rights, wants to take it.

The first three films video rights remain at the moment with Paramount

Over the last few days or so a number of different rumours have been floating around the web and in the international press that there is deffinately going to be an Indiana Jones 4. The Sun newspaper here in the last week stated that Harrison Ford will return for a fee of around £18 million ($25-28 million) and Sean Connery would also return to play the role of Henry Jones too. Both Spielberg and Lucas would be involved in directing nad producing roles. Today Aint It Cool also ran a story that said that the film will be entitled Indiana Jones and the Call of Cthulhu. What is going on? Well, I went to see what else I could find out. This is what I found on various internet sites. Dark Horizons has a small piece on Friday that Paramount were greenlighted to look at script submissions for the fourth film. Thestudio do, however, want the original credits. That'll be Harrison starring, Lucas producing and Speilberg directing. Ford, as we know, will command a hefty fee of around $25 million plus a back end deal and both Lucas and Spielberg will opt for a lesser fee plus a cut of the films profits. The whole thing will cost Paramount in the region of $150 million. It will therefore be a little difficult for the studio to make a profit after the three take their cash once the film starts to make money. The studio say that they have three scripts that they are interested in developing, however Spielberg and Lucas have said that they want writing control. Over to and those rumours are shot down as the BBC News site posted this quoting a Paramount spokesman, "These rumors come round every couple of months. It's idle gossip." . Lastly, HarrisonFordWeb posted this little article quoted from E! News Daily, an interview with Steven Spielberg himself, (on his next project) Well.. to tell you the truth.. I am going to take some time off this summer and then start with Mr Lucas on another INDIANA JONES movie. "E" Asked another question. "really! will Harrison Ford play Indiana?" Mr Spielberg replied......."yes...we just signed him last week" . More news as I get it.


Page created. This one is probably one of the most anticipated movies ever (after the Star Wars sequels and possibly The Matrix 2). But it seems as if 2002 is the earliest date that this project could go ahead. It may possibly be later. George Lucas is tied up with those Star Wars sequels, Spielberg has at least two more movies in production yet, the first being Minority Report with Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford has a busy schedule too. It's all just a case of the mvoie going ahead when everybody is free. But, Ford isn't getting any younger either, he's 58 this year, so the fourth film may take a different path of the earlier movie with the plot set later in his life.

Casting wise, only Ford is set to return at the moment and nobody has been confirmed. But, we cannot really expectanything until the film has a definate start date. Harrison Ford recentley appeared on 'Inside The Actor's Studion' on cable over here in the UK and the question of whether there will be a fourth movie was put to him. He replied, 'yes'. The audience applauded, then Ford added 'only because I want there to be' and then went on to say that once everyone was free, the film would probably happen. Again no confirmations. Michelle Yeoh who recentley found fame in 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' and also appeared in 'Tomorrow Never Dies' is also apparently in talks to star in the film. No news yet on Sean Connery though. It seems, from what I have read, that it is the general opinion that fans want him to return to his role as Indy's Dad that he made famous back in the third movie, which seems like eons ago back in 1989.

As I round off this opening article, here's a little news that popped up on Saturday. This years 'Power List' was published in Premiere magazine this month and both Harrison Ford and George Lucas made it into the top50. Here's a little quote that appeared under Ford's name; 'Still up for doing a fourth Indiana Jones adventure, which producer Lucas just set up at Paramount.' So, is the film finally in pre-production?

Finally here are links to a rumour script posted on fansite The, by Chris Columbus!
