With all the buzz and anti-buzz about the fourth Indiana Jones movie, at least ONE person involved is trying to put a positive spin on things.
SciFi Wire says:
Harrison Ford, speaking to the press at the Rome Film Festival last week, said that he feels “fit to continue” to play Indiana Jones, despite growing older, the Associated Press reported. Ford, 64, said that he was delighted to team up again with director Steven Spielberg and producer George Lucas for the film.
“We did three films that stay within the same block of time,” Ford told reporters. “We need to move on for artistic reasons and obvious physical reasons. I feel fit to continue and bring the same physical action.”
Now we all know that John thinks this movie will never happen. I gotta tell you, I have TRIED to come up with a reason to argue against him on this. But really I have to admit, I too don’t think it will happen.
Harrison says he is fit enough to do the movie, and considering they are going to move the timeframe up a step, that wouldnt be hard. This is supposed to be an adventure of an older Indiana Jones. So he is just admitting that he is as ‘unfit’ as the character they are writing for him. Now to add some flavour to their monthly planned Indy4 tidbits, Ford admits that Connery may reprise his role too, calling Sean a “part of the emotional fabric of these films”
This movie will be forever in “pre-production”. We should start a poll for which month they will declare they are NOT doing this movie after all.
