We’ve got a good news/bad news for you people today.
First, the good news. Indiana Jones 5 has been officially confirmed and is in preproduction.
The bad news: We don’t know when it’s coming and there’s a chance it’s as bad as Indy 4. But we’re optimistic here at Flix Junkies and we’re hoping for the best.
As you recall Disney is slowly taking over the world much like the Empire itself and recently bought up LucasFilms, which included the rights to Star Wars and the studio is in full swing taking full advantage of that purchase. What some people forgot is that along with Star Wars, Disney also got the rights to Indiana Jones and all of his glory.
We knew it was only a matter of time before some Indy news popped its head out of the sand and here we are.
LucasFilms president Kathleen Kennedy made the announcement speaking with Variety. She said 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.”
So, that’s a start. For now we can only huddle together and pray to the movie gods that the powers that be learned from “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” and get back to the things we love; like giant rolling boulders and monkey brains.
