Well, I stumbled across some murmurs through the film industry today that’s pretty dang interesting. Rumor has it that a fifth and final installment of the immensely popular Indiana Jones movie franchise is in the works. The latest film was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which came out in 2008. Prior to that, the series had been inactive since 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
The film is still in planning stages, and has not been fully confirmed, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it is. Both Harrison Ford and Shia LeBouf will return as the father and son adventure pair that was revealed in the fourth film. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the film is that it is supposed to take place in and around the mysterious Bermuda Triangle. I think as long as George Lucas and crew cut down on the CGI-fest that was Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and focus on the real action and plot that made the first three films such huge successes, Indiana Jones can end in style.
Look forward to more news as this develops!
Its all over the place in various states of fractured factuality, but I think the sole concept is true – there is a fifth Indy coming, but I don’t think it’s next year. YMMV
