Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones” is one of the most prolific movie franchises in history. Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford and George Lucas developed an iconic character, so when the announcement came out earlier this year that an Indy 5 is in the works, starring Ford and directed by Spielberg, many fans sat up straight.

Disney and LucasFilm announced that screenwriter David Koepp, who has worked with Spielberg on “Jurassic Park”, “War of The Worlds” and “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” will be penning the newest installment. In a recent interview with Collider’s Steve Weintraub, Koepp mentioned some things about the project.

Koepp said he’s hard at work on writing the script for Indiana Jones 5, but one big question that loomed over the film was whether Lucas would be involved. The way the franchise worked in that past was that Lucas would come up with the idea for the movie and Spielberg would execute it. When Indy 5 was announced, Lucas’ name was nowhere to be found. Spielberg subsequently said Lucas would serve as an executive producer on the film, but in speaking with Koepp, the screenwriter revealed that Lucas is not involved in the story of Indiana Jones 5: “He’s not, to my knowledge. I’ve had no contact with him.”

There is no confirmation as to the story and what Indy will be looking for, but this is an interesting development. Lucas has been with the Jones camp from it’s inception. I for one, being a huge Indy fan, am looking forward to more news and any new developments whatever they may be.
