Lucasfilm Confirms Yet Another 'Indiana Jones' Movie Will Be Made
It's nothing major, but it is another official confirmation from Lucasfilm. This time the studio has confirmed to Vanity Fair that they definitely are developing another new Indiana Jones movie – it will "one day be made". Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm, we've been hearing rumors and rumblings of another Indiana Jones that might continue where Kingdom of the Crystal Skull left off, or reboot the series altogether. Over the years we've heard names like Bradley Cooper and Chris Pratt mentioned as potential replacements, but again nothing is confirmed yet. In fact, Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy went so far as to say that they haven't even started working on a script yet. Too early for anything to actually come together, only ideas for now.
Here's the segment from Vanity Fair covering the latest Indiana Jones confirmation:
In buying the company, Disney also got rights, for better or worse, to less-storied Lucasfilm properties, among them Willow and Radioland Murders. A bigger prize is the Indiana Jones franchise. Kennedy confirmed rumors that another Indy movie "will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I'm not quite sure. We haven't started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it."
As of two years ago, in 2013, Frank Marshall has been hinting about new development on Indiana Jones for Lucasfilm. We know Disney sure wants to get it made; even though there still is a bad taste in everyone's mouths from Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, it's still Indy! And I can only imagine how successful it'll be if Jurassic World opens huge, Chris Pratt is a certified star, and they cast him as the new Indy, or something like that. There's even that rumor that cinematographer Janusz Kaminski has already signed up for the next Indiana Jones. But as Kathleen Kennedy said, "when it will happen, I'm not quite sure." It sounds like we still might have a while to wait, though enough waiting and he'll show up. For now, it's all about Star Wars.
