INDIANA JONES 5: Lucasfilm Confirms New Film is a Reality

A New Indiana Jones Film Will be Made. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, while speaking about the properties that Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures acquired when they purchased Lucasfilm, briefly spoke about the Indiana Jones film franchise when the subject was broached. During this segment of the interview, Ms. Kennedy confirmed that a new film had been discussed.

The section of the interview pertaining to Indiana Jones 5:

In buying the company, Disney also got rights, for better or worse, to less-storied Lucasfilm properties, among them Willow and Radioland Murders. A bigger prize is the Indiana Jones franchise. Kennedy confirmed rumors that another Indy movie “will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.”

On Kathleen Kennedy history with the Indiana Jones film franchise:

Kennedy…served as Indiana Jones director Steven Spielberg’s trusted executive producer on all of his projects from 1982-2012?

On the Indiana Jones film franchise:

The Indiana Jones franchise is an American entertainment franchise, based on the adventures of Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones, a fictional archaeologist. It began in 1981 with the film Raiders of the Lost Ark. A prequel, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, followed in 1984 and the sequel Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in 1989. In 1992, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, featuring adventures the character had as a child as he traveled around the world with his father, began airing on television. A fourth film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was released in 2008. The series was created by George Lucas; the films star Harrison Ford and were directed by Steven Spielberg.

The question is whether Harrison Ford will reprise the lead role or if a new lead will be chosen.

    Casey Wayne for the new Indiana Jones. I have trained for this my whole life. And I agree with George Lucas’s original idea to use an unknown as Indiana Jones. Such as myself. Thank you
