Indiana Jones 5 On The Way, Claims Spielberg
A fifth Indiana Jones movie is likely to begin production in the near future, after director Steven Spielberg revealed his close friend and collaborator George Lucas is working on the script. During an interview with Empire Magazine, the moviemaker conceded that elements of the fourth instalment of the franchise didn't work, but nonetheless hinted he would be on board for a fifth.
The first three movies, starring Harrison Ford, are held in high regard by film fanatics, but Kingdom of the Crystal Skull generally fell short of expectations. One particular scene, in which Indiana survives a nuclear blast by hiding in a refrigerator, was generally ridiculed. Spielberg explained, "Blame me. Don't blame George. That was my silly idea. People stopped saying 'jump the shark'. They now say, 'nuked the fridge'. I'm proud of that. I'm glad I was able to bring that into popular culture". Harrison Ford has previously spoken of his desire to make a fifth movie, telling MTV News he'd "love" to do another, and Spielberg appeared to confirm the speculation to Empire, saying, ".He is working on Indy V. We haven't gone to screenplay yet, but he's working on the story. I'll leave it to George to come up with a good story".
A movie that certainly looks likely to appear before Indiana Jones V, is a fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park franchise. Spielberg confirmed the script is now complete, saying, "We have a good story. We have a better story for four than we had for three..."
