Steven Spielberg Will Not Recast Indiana Jones

indiana

Steven Spielberg is probably going to direct another Indiana Jones film. There has been talk of rebooting the franchise — rumors that have always been quickly shot down — but Spielberg and Harrison Ford seem intent on making a fifth installment in the series. One day someone will probably fill Ford’s shoes in the lead. A reboot is bound to happen. But don’t expect the role to be recast anytime soon.

After the jump, Spielberg explains why there’s only one Indiana Jones.

new star wars: the force awakens photos

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in just over two weeks. It premieres in 12 days. Director J.J. Abrams has reached picture lock, the point where editing is finished and only the final visual effects and sound touch-ups remain. It is now a real movie that actually exists and will be in theaters soon, not a batch of trailers or a gallery of on-set photographs or a figment of our collective imagination. It’s almost here, people.

So you may want to tread cautiously around Rolling Stone’s deep dive into the film, which takes the reader behind the scenes of the film’s post-production process and squeezes a few sweet, juicy details into the public eye. However, the article is also an incredible look at a hugely anticipated movie from the point-of-view of a huge fan who knows how to ask the right questions. You can check out more details, including a batch of new photos from the set, after the jump.

The Force Awakens Rating

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is officially PG-13. That’s the rating we all expected, but some fans worried Disney would try to make the film a completely kid-friendly picture — something we shouldn’t expect from J.J. Abrams or this franchise. Even the PG installments, like The Empire Strikes Back, would’ve been rated PG-13 today.

Abrams’ sequel is the second Star Wars film to be rated PG-13. After the jump, learn what the Force Awakens’ rating is and isn’t for.

Jimmy Kimmel Star Wars

If you’ve been watching Jimmy Kimmel Live over the past few years, or if you just pay attention whenever there’s a Star Wars-related clip that makes its way online, then you know that Harrison Ford has some serious beef with Chewbacca. The Wookiee seems to have done some nefarious activities with the wife of the man who plays his on-screen pal. Ford is so upset at Chewie that he has called him a “son of a bitch” when he tried to stop by his dressing room in 2011, and a “Wookiee sack of shit” when he popped up again in 2013.

But on last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens-themed episode, Ford finally settled the feud as Chewbacca was threatening to end his life on top of Jimmy Kimmel’s studio. Plus, there was plenty of other fun stuff, like a trivia contest between the cast and a seven-year old kid, a hologram from Carrie Fisher and a Star Wars edition of Lie Witness News. Read More »
