Lucasfilm Confirms Yet Another 'Indiana Jones' Movie Will Be Made

Indiana Jones

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.

OMG fuck off, the last one was shit, this one will be shit. Make a new Willow!!!!! I'd be more excited for that.

I just saw this comment. I wrote the same one!

Idk....out of all the options, I'd be down to see Pratt as Indy. As long as the story wasn't as ridiculous and stupid as the Crystal Skull was. THREE TIMES I TRIED TO WATCH THAT POS, AND EACH TIME I FELL ASLEEP! LITERALLY DOZED OFF AT THE STUPID MUTT AND MONKEYS JUNGLE SCENE! EFF THAT STUPID MOVIE. Eff it.

It angers me too, Raw D. It angers me too....

The gophers at the beginning too. What the feck were they all about??!

Carpola on May 5, 2015


Forget Indie! That's Harrison Ford's movie, and he's too old. How about a Willow movie?? That film was the bomb.

TheOct8pus on May 5, 2015


We may disagree on some stuff, but on this we agree!!

Brian Sleider on May 5, 2015


Willow should have been a trilogy. They should make a sequel, Warwick davis looks the same. Val Kilmore could play a whale

Bounty 4 Zuckuss on May 5, 2015


I'd say a reboot, with Warwich Davis as the father of the new hero. With some minimal make-up or light CGI, Val Kilmer could play a giant Jabba The Hutt type monster character

Might have to lose a few pounds first though.

Brian Sleider on May 6, 2015


I think it would be better to leave indy alone. Because Ford was Indy. They fucked up a possible proper transition with the atrocious Indy 4 so I feel they should just stick a fork in it.

Sascha Dikiciyan on May 5, 2015


absolutely. i'm not against sequels or even reboots if you actually try and do something different, plus i like Chris Pratt, but sometimes a lead role transcends generations. Ford simply is Indy, just like Russell is Snake Plissken, Pacino is Scarface, Falk is Columbo, etc. these guys just owned those roles. it's not Bond. move on.

I liked Crystal Skull.

OfficialJab on May 5, 2015


I watched it in theatres, didnt care for it...watched it again last week for only the second time and honestly it wasn't all that bad. It's only failure was that it wasnt made in the 80's.

Jon Odishaw on May 5, 2015


That's a good way to describe it. Even the parts I hate like the monkeys I would have accepted as fun if it was made 30 years ago.

OfficialJab on May 5, 2015


I'll have to rewatch it. I think it's probably better than I remember

Bounty 4 Zuckuss on May 5, 2015


That took cojones my friend. I respect and admire your honesty. (but was a bit dismayed by the film myself)

avconsumer2 on May 5, 2015


I'm with you. I enjoyed it. Was it the best? No. But it was fun.

Quanah on May 5, 2015


It had it's problems, but it was fun. My two biggest complaints were: 1. It appeared to have been filmed using a lot of green screen. The on-location aspect was a big part of the previous films' charm. 2. Karen Allen was WAAAAY underutilized in this one.

New Indy would be a tricky transition. Willow sequel/reboot!? Hmmm! Interesting!

avconsumer2 on May 5, 2015


NOOOOOOOO!! Sorry for the yelling. I am very much against the prospect of Willow being remade/rebooted/whateverthefuck. Have a nice day.

grimjob on May 6, 2015


I wonder what they are going to do next after using aliens in the last film. Indiana Jones and The Paranormal Activity? Indiana Jones and The Curse of The Werewolf? Indiana Jones To The Future Guest Starring Doc Brown?

Jordan Odinson on May 5, 2015


Sorry, but with Pratt headling Lego (not really), Guardians OTG, and Jurrasic it feels like overkill to give him another franchise.

Akirakorn on May 5, 2015


Except I think this one is a perfect fit... and Jurassic Park won't be a franchise. New one is going to be redundant of the first and they've gone the route of "monster movie". Seriously, you couldn't figure out another plot outside them escaping? Now I'm rambling...

chuckpenz on May 6, 2015


This is one of the few franchises I love sooo much that I don't want to see it expand. Harrison Ford....mid 30's young Harrison the ONLY person that portrays the character of Indiana Jones and that doesn't need to change.

JBroti on May 5, 2015


LOL. I am kind of excited! Sorry I just am.

DAVIDPD on May 5, 2015


Not gonna lie. Kinda excited by this.

DAVIDPD on May 6, 2015


What do you mean "yet another"? The last one was 7 years ago... it's not like the property has been handled like the saw franchise or anything.
