A couple months ago it was rumored that the found ark of the covenant had something to do with the fourth Indiana Jones film. Then a poster released at Comic-Con 2007 showed Indy’s hat and Whip on top of a crate with the words “Property of Dr. Jones” and a number. And the numbers supposedly coincided with some lucasfilm library photos of the crate containing the Lost Ark. Well now AintItCool is reporting that LucasFilm have recreated the Warehouse that was seen at the end of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. That’s right, Indy is in fact going back to the beginning.
I’m still under the belief that this is the MacGuffin that George Lucas may have been speaking about during the scripting process. I mean, clearly a film called Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is not about the Found Ark, but about Crystal Skulls. My best guess is that the film begins with the Ark but snowballs into something much more.
