Shia LaBeouf on Indiana Jones 5

ShiaLaBeouf.jpgTalk of another Indiana Jones film, began almost as soon as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was released.

Now Shia LaBeouf says the story has been created, and it's all moving into gear.

After Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Filmstalker review) was released, there was talk of some tension between Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. Seemingly Lucas thought it was easier to make the first three films, because he sorted it himself.

Not only that but George Lucas wanted to modernise the franchise, where as Steven Spielberg wanted to make the films along the similar lines to the original. All has been quiet for a while, but now Shia LaBeouf says stuff is finally happening.

Steven [Spielberg] just said he cracked the story on it before I left and I think they're gearing that up....

He was talking in an interview with the BBC, through IESB. You can also catch him talking about Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and the Wall Street sequel Money Never Sleeps. But now we know that a story is in place. I wonder who won out, will we see a modernised Indy maybe with Shia as the lead? Or is Steven Spielberg taking us back to old school Indy?

Which would you prefer?



I'd rather they just left it be, but money talks so fingers crossed they go with old school Indy

Although I liked the direction Crystal Skull went I think the film was missing a bit of grit and a decent villian. It was the second hightest grossing film that year (behind The Dark Knight) so the interest may still be there, but the Indy magic has slightly disappeared.

The're raping Indy!

This won't be the old school Indy at all, especially if Lucas wins out, it'll be the young Indiana Jones and it'll be filled with CGI rubbish over anything else.

you know, i really enjoyed indy 4. but here was what i saw as the problem:

indy himself was handled quite well. his age wasn't even an issue and I was amazed at how spry they made it all seem.

the problem was, as someone up there said, was grit. it had none. it needs some rough around the edges manliness and to be completely honest, KoTCS was a ladies' indy movie.

oh...and those animals got annoying after a while. especially the monkeys.

the one thing that saved the movie was when indy, mutt and marion met up. the screen exploded in chemistry. if there is a sequel, with so many people not returning, they should make sure Karen Allen is onboard.
