View Full Version : Indiana Jones 4 Confirmed

From Foxnews.com:

At the end of a wild night of partying and celebrating for the 2002 Golden Globes, I had the rare opportunity of talking with Steven Spielberg, Kate Capshaw and Harrison Ford. They were sitting together in a small booth in the basement of Trader Vic's at the Beverly Hilton Hotel at the combined party thrown by DreamWorks, USA Films and Universal Pictures.
This threesome is pretty much it in Hollywood. After all, between Spielberg and Ford they've made some of the highest grossing and best loved films of all time. Capshaw, who's Mrs. Spielberg, co-starred with Ford in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

So what's the story, I wanted to know with this trio finally in one place, and relaxed enough to talk, will we ever see Indiana Jones 4?

"Yes," they all said, and confirmed that once Spielberg films Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, IJ4 will be his priority.

"We have a title, but we're not ready to announce it," Spielberg said. "I will give you one clue, though. Kate is in it." I asked if he meant that Capshaw's character would appear via flashbacks, and he replied: "No. She'll be in the present."

Ford, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award, said he's ready to take on this last chapter. "It was always about getting the right script, and now we have it," he said.

This is fantastic news for all movie fans but the big question remains, how and if Lucas will be involved in Indy4 with Star Wars taking up his time through 2005. Let's hope we hear an announcement from Lucasfilm in the coming days. Visit the link above for more on the article and thanks to paulray95 for the alert!

Sounds like a must-see. I never did see the first 3 in theatres.

You never did?! :( That sucks
Do you think that Indy 4 is gonna be a prequal, much like ToD was for RotLA?

Well, considering Ford's age....

I doubt it.

This one is going to deal with him struggling with his age. I also hear it's about the Nazis again. *yay!* :)

Neo-Nazis, or Nazi-Nazis?

I hope nazi-nazis (this might sound strange from a german, but those 2 films simply rule ...)

I must agree... :wstupid:

All the rumors I heard said that Connery would be in it again. That'd be cool.

good grief - i mean i love the indy films and i'm sure that number 4 will be superb (please don't pull an EP1 oh please please please) but they're all so ancient, do you think that will detract from the overall feel?

Obvioously, this will most undoubtedly be the last IJ movie. I think Ford still has it in him to pull off another action movie, since all he has been doing are these crazy 'What Lies Beneath' and 'Random Hearts' bullcrud. This might just be 'Ford's Last Stand'.

i hope not, he's so cool - come on ford, you hang in there

Sean Connery, eh? They just give him loads of lines with "s" sounds in them, so that people can understand what he's saying (he tends to mumble!):

"Shee shells, shee shells, on the shee shore, profesher"

And Willy? God, she was annoying! I'd rather they brought back the woman from Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

Sean rocks!

I'm not sure if it will be a prequal, but I doubt it. We'll just have to watch and see.

Wow, Dan. I haven't seen you in forever! :eek:

(I doubt that you remember me though. ;) )

Why does Willy have to be in it?
No-one likes her.

However, I cannot wait for the film, and I too heard Connery was signed up for it.
