Is development on a fifth Indiana Jones film further along than we think? CBS’s The Insider claims that Harrison Ford is set to return as Indy for another adventure, which won’t “start until next year, and it will not be released before 2011, when the star will be 69.”
Lets keep in mind, The Insider isn’t exactly the best source for information. They’re one of those gossipy television show like Entertainment Tonight. Their Internet website cites unnamed sources for the information. And aside from the tentative shoot and release dates, what does the source say?
“Harrison has kept himself in good shape and could still do a lot of the stunts in the last film.”
Back in mid June, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull star Shia LaBeouf told the BBC that Steven Spielberg had “cracked a story on [Indiana Jones 5] before I left and I think they’re gearing that up.” So, who knows? It is possible. I’ll believe it when its officially announced. Lets just hope that Spielberg keeps Lucas away from the story meetings this time around.
