Indiana Jones

Just last week, we learned that Disney gained the rights to Indiana Jones from Paramount Pictures, making their ownership of Lucasfilm complete. Disney picked up "distribution and marketing rights to future films, in addition to retaining its current ownership rights," which means the House of Mouse can now make Indiana Jones sequels, reboots, etc. at their leisure, just like their continuance Star Wars saga starting with Episode VII with director J.J. Abrams. Now a tweet from Indiana Jones producer Frank Marshall seems to indicate that Disney is moving swiftly to get a new Indiana Jones movie off the ground.

Here's the tweet in question from Frank Marshall, pointed out by Jedi News:

It would seem odd that Marshall would be in the Indiana Jones offices at Lucasfilm (now at Disney) and not discussing the potential plans for continuing the Indiana Jones franchise. After all, Harrison Ford has said that he still would like to do another Indiana Jones movie while he's still able. He always seems more keen on doing another adventure as Dr. Jones rather than returning as Han Solo, so this shouldn't be nearly as hard to negotiate as getting him back into Star Wars. This is just pure speculation at this point, but Disney would likely want to get another popular franchise moving quickly.

    Bring it Disney. Please let Indy wake up in bed and that last outing be a dream. As someone, somewhere said about KOTCS, Indy's recounting of his war missions to the gov agents was more interesting than the entire rest of the movie. There are so many great adventures he could still go on.

      He wakes up, and slowly crawls out of the fridge and collapses in the sand.

      I loved Skull, but I do agree with your first thought. Bring it Disney. By which I mean bring a great movie, not a CGI blur. That's one thing from the last one that I can do without.
    • Everyone hates kingdom but the worst Indy flick is Temple! But even still I love them ALL!

        Are you fucking kidding?
        • No I'm very FUCKING serious! The fact that you disagree is a good thing!

    hurry up and make it before he's getting too old.
    • Lagoya
      He's already too old!
  • Nathan Williams
    I am all for another Indy adventure! I even enjoyed 4 more than most. It still wasn't great but at least they brough his main love interest back. As long as there's no aliens I'm ok with it!
  • grimjob
    Good, I want more. Ford was great in Kingdom, so I know he's still got it, the story itself was just bad. I'm down for some more old Indy.
    • You wrote exactly what I was feeling. More, more, more Indy! Hey, Dr. Jones, no time for love!
    Slowly eyes flicker open as if in a hazy blur trying to focus. Slow flashes of focus: fedora on table, flower vase, old book... then suddenly a sound of movement. A face looking over him. Professor Henry Jones: Junior... Indiana Jones awakes from his coma he has been in .....

    Franchise ended for me in 1989. Crystal Skull was awful. Harrison looks tired.
  • Such heroic nonsense
    Oh for fucks sake!
