Harrison Ford Game For Another Indy Film

Indy-1It looks like Harrison Ford is not opposed to the idea of another Indiana Jones picture, as long as it happens pronto. We get wind of this delightful news thanks to the good people over at moviehole:

Though the most likely possibility is Shia LaBeouf carrying on the series, “Indiana Jones” star Harrison Ford tells USA Today that “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” might not be the character’s final film appearance – if George Lucas and Steven Spielberg can get get their asses in gear and have a fifth “Indiana Jones” film ready soon – rather than in another twenty years – Ford says he’d consider playing the Man in the Hat again.

Ford tells the stone tablet that Indiana Jones, as a character, hasn’t changed much since we first met him in 1982. “He’s a guy who is pretty clear from the beginning,” the actor says. “He has not changed so much between films. But we’ve learned more about him, through various plot devices, such as the introduction of his father. And we’ll learn something more about him in this film. I think it’s required. If you’re going to bring back a character, you’ll have to supply the audience with something more and different.”

Do it up! I am game for more Indy Action; as long as the stories are good – why not. This character is a legendary explorer, and this type of work lends itself to countless stories of adventure without tiring out a series. You assume Indy has been on countless adventures; to see a window into many of them – simply fleshes out your imagination.

Harrison is no idiot and knows that he’s approaching an age where he would rather be drinking in a lawn chair than working. Wisely, he lets it known that he will do more films – but they have to be done asap. Hopefully this carrot on a string will get Spielberg and Lucas in gear to do another film shortly. If the numbers are as big as I think they will be for this picture, I reckon it is safe to say that we can expect at least one more outing. Godspeed Indy, godspeed.

  1. Indy 4 was OK and I am glad they did it. I liked the whole idea of having HF playing a 20 years older Indy and the movie came out very well in this regard. I do believe though that 4 is enough. There is no point in doing a Indiana Jones movie without Ford playing the lead and making another one with the then 60 years old Indy would likely turn out like total self derision. Please don’ t start some“ son of Idiana Jones” series with Shia. He did good in 4 but its time to move on.

  2. Indy supposedly DIES???? Where is THIS being talked about? I haven’t heard that.

    Phil, I realize they can’t totally bring back Darabont’s script. I was making a point. That’s why I said “or another script by him”.

  3. That’s the conspiracy theory Kristina. I don’t believe Indy’s gonna die though (i sound like Jar Jar).

    And NBA kid, they can’t just use Darabon’t script. His and all the subsequent ones have used the same magical maguffin per Lucas’ instructions.

  4. I also will not accept another person for an older Indy. I WILL accept another actor for “Young Indiana Jones” because it’s already been done, and obviously Harrison Ford can’t play a 20 or 30 year old.

    But Harrison IS Indiana Jones, no one else is.

  5. YES. DO IT NOW. And bring back Darabont’s script (which was apparently rejected because of how Darabont treated the relationship between Indy and his brother, who was supposed to be Kevin Costner). Or another script by him.

    I will NOT accept a movie franchise like Indiana Jones being “carried on” by Shia. I love the guy as an actor, but no go. No. Absolutely not. Fuck you.

    Also, just because Harrison is old doesn’t mean he HAS to play old. There’s no reason they can’t go back in time and tell an earlier story (they did it Temple of Doom).

  6. Even if they get one of the ground sooner than later the most they can hope for is another three years. By then Ford will be like 70! Who wants to see a 70 year old Indy! Now granted it might be great but still a 70 year old Indy!!!

    I was really hoping if they continue the Indy series get anther Indy like they do every 10 years for bond! I always thought Nathan Fillion from Firefly would be a great Indy! He would do the character justice!

    I’ver never been a Shia LaBeouf fan so seeing him continue the series is not what I had in mind. But hey I’ll always give the series a chance as long as Lucas and Speilberg are behind it!

  7. I look forward to another Indy movie, but I can’t really say it with much anticipation without seeing Crystal Skull. And time wise, I don’t see those two agreeing quickly enough to get another film out in time.
