Back in May, George Lucas excitedly told Fox News that he had an idea to make a new Indiana Jones movie without Harrison Ford.
“I haven’t even told Steven or Harrison this,” Lucas said. “But I have an idea to make Shia [LeBeouf] the lead character next time and have Harrison [Ford] come back like Sean Connery did in the last movie. I can see it working out.”
Lucas sat down with the AP earlier this week and assured them if there were to be a fifth Indy film, stating that there is the possibility of such, it would star Harrison Ford. But he said that a Mutt Williams spin-off film is also possible, but it wouldn’t be an Indiana Jones film.
“If Indiana Jones wasn’t in it, you’d have to call it ‘Mutt Williams and the search for Elvis.’ … “Yeah, it’s ‘Mutt Williams and the Search for Elvis.’”
With George, you never know if he’s joking or not. Could his idea really have been Mutt Williams and the search for Elvis? Would anyone really pay to see such a movie? Apparently Lucas gave out the same title to MTV during their interview as well. So either he thinks its funny or is testing the waters. Please say it was a joke.
