Didn't see this posted anywhere here yet, so thought it was a cool thing to post.

Harrision Ford in Indy 5?!

Might be cool, I'll definately see it obviously when it comes out. smile

I don't know. After the last film, maybe 4 was enough, perhaps even 1 too many. The plot was, well, yeah. And a certain degree of randomness was present, but maybe #5 is the trick? We'll see.

So, thoughts? wink

I wasn't sure how credible Shia's comments were a few months ago, so now that we've heard from one of the big three, I'm officially excited.

2011 at the earliest. There's no way this gets out next year... the script isn't even close. If they get their act together and finish a script, I'd say they're on track for summer 2011. I doubt they're going to have any kind of developmental problems like they did with the last one. My only concern is when Ford says "George is actively at work"... that had better not mean he's going solo on the script. As much as I still love Lucas, that would be a disaster. smile

2011 is looking huge right now:

Star Trek Sequel
Spiderman 4
Pirates 4
The Hobbit
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II

And now maybe Indy 5.

Wow, this looks interesting. George...uh. I'm not too impressed with his SW prequels, and while Indy 4 was undeniably good, it wasn't up to the amazing quality of the originals. It was far too mystical and spooky. Indy should be what the originals were: beat-em-ups with great stories and awesome characters.

I'm very interested in seeing it if/when it comes out.

Indy is always a good thing. George Lucas writing is always a bad thing. But who knows. Maybe the heard the outcry on the last one and will go down a better route for the 5th.

I for one will go see it. Indy always gets me to buy a ticket.

I think Indy 4 was a series of excellent set pieces put together into a very mediocre film. Bit like Temple of Doom in that respect.

Hopefully they'll be able to string it all together more naturally next time round.

Please, let this die. Indy 4 was the worst film I have ever paid money to see bar none. I hope this production fails miserably and gets bogged down in so much red tape it never gets off the ground.

Fortunately, you're an adult now, and these new Indy films have nothing to do with you, or your childhood, at all. Stop crying.

More Indy can never be a truly bad thing. Crystal Skull was only slightly better or worse than Temple of Doom, depending on who you're asking, and I feel confident that they can pull off something much closer to the original films this time around. As long as they stick to religious artifacts, and keep away from Sci-fi. I don't even mind if Shia tags along again. There was a good dynamic there, apart from the vine-swinging bit, which was just plain silly.

Keys for a good Indiana Jones film
-Religious artifacts! None of that sci-fi hocus pocus (not that religion isn't hocus pocus it is, but it suits Indy much better, as an archaeologist.)
-Keep the kiddie stuff out! Yeah, we get it. Lucas and Spielberg have kids and want their kids to enjoy their work. It takes away from the experience for those of us (I'm excluding Bryan M Block) who are not children [at heart].
-Snakes.
-(Optional) Sean Connery. If they got Sean back for another go, even if it's only for two minutes screen-time, it will be a very good thing.

I forgot- you guys are from the "reality TV" generation.

Story? We don't need no stinkin' story!
Dialogue??? What is that!??? Characters do not have depth! They are there only to serve the CGI.
Character development? We don't need that...just put on the hat and stand over there.
What do you mean revelation through conflict!??!?? Write down all of the exposition into one monologue and save it for act II for crying out loud!!

Plot twist? what do you mean TWIST? Just build me a sequence with tons of CGI.

Ending? We don't need an ending. Just...just.... what is the biggest thing we can do with CGI? Do we even NEED Harrison for this part?

You are right...kids don't like Indiana Jones at all...we need something, something, something for the kids. Indiana Jones is not interesting to kids......can we do something with monkeys? No, not real ones...CGI! And where is that gopher puppet from Caddyshack? I know I saw it around here SOMEWHERE...?

Enjoy Indy 5.

I'm looking forward to it. Like all the other movies, even the fourth one. Indy films mainly try to fit with the time period. during WWII Hitler was looking for Religious artifacts. So I wasn't shock or disappointed the alien card as dropped in the 4th one. Because during the cold war both U.S. and USSR were trying to make psychic soldiers. I do wish the story was rounded out more then it was. But as for a Indy 5 I hope it is good as the first three. Yet Ford said he would only do it if the script is good.

I once made a comment like that, except it was pro-religion, and my post was deleted within, what, minutes. I saw the reason, so I didn't argue. But, ahem. Bias? Just pointing it out. I wish we could keep religion within religious discussions. Makes me want to start arguing and going completely off topic.

OT:
Funny fight. I would join, except looking at most arguments on the site I can find that actual arguing when things get this hot is as futile as running headlong into a stone wall. Suffice to say that I liked Indy 4, though not relative to the others, and would definitely be willing to see another.

Because Indy is awesome.

I'm hoping after Indy 4 they'll have successfully identified what worked (Ford, Shia, the 'real' action sequences such as the motorbike/campus sequence) and what didn't (CG gophers, CG monkeys, CG swinging, big VFX finale) and will be able to regain the magic of the old films.

Bit like how Bryan Singer used X-Men as a test run before making the proper film with X2.

Then again, I was hoping Michael Bay would do something similar with Transformers 2.

Yeah, I'm not sure you can talk about the Indy films without religion being part of the conversation. Unless you're talking about Indy 4, of course, which many cite as its main problem. smile

The concept of an Indy film set in the 50s being about aliens was genius, the problem is that they should have made it feel more like a 50s alien movie. A bit like how the original Indy films had the feeling of old Hollywood biblical epics or gangster films or adventures.

Yes, George Lucas strikes me as a man who is a visionary, "idea" kind of person, and not so great in the execution. Not that Indy 4 was bad, it just could have been loads better. Even John Williams' score wasn't that memorable in Indy 4. Spielberg also seemed like he wasn't aiming for "above and beyond". And if like you said, they "do a X2" with this opportunity, that would be really great.

Perhaps Harrison Ford should have more creative involvement this time around.

I don't think Lucas's story is to blame. I actually think the concept is brilliant. My biggest problem with the film is that the actual script by David Koepp is a bit bland and uninspired. Unfortunately, they had to use it because they realized, it was now... or never.

The reason why I'm more excited for 5 than I was for Indy 4 is because if the big three have already agreed on a story... it must be really good. Remember it took them nineteen years to actually come up with the last decent story.

As most of you know, I gave Indy 4 a 10/10, so you have to take my comments with a grain of salt. I know it's not perfect, but it's far better than most of the modernized garbage that's being churned out now. I do think the final product could have, and should have been better than what it was. But still, it's just classic Indy. Indiana Jones and the Saucer Men from Mars (the first draft, all-out alien invasion movie) would not have been. Neither would Darabont's lame Indiana Jones and the City of Gods. I would have loved to see M. Night's draft. smile

I want to see 5 done in the style of "Raiders" and "Crusade", in that I want a polished story, with actual twists and turns, along with a quest for an ancient religious artifact. That's the problem with Indy 4... the characters were just along for the ride... not doing much of anything.

There's only one use of CGI in Indy 4 that I think is unacceptable to be in the movie: the monkeys. The rest is used sparingly, and appropriately. It doesn't stand out, and certainly doesn't detract from the movie. In particular, in the forest battle, they only used CGI to enhance what was already there. Same goes for the nuclear blast... they used it to enhance the explosion of the miniature neighborhood. The only "all-out" CGI scene is the climax, and if I remember, didn't the finale of Raiders use extensive special effects?

Getting back to Indy 5... anyone want to guess what the MacGuffin is? Or at least comment on what you think it should be?

I'm not sure I follow? The Staff of Moses has already been considered?

Also yes to your second question. That would be a CGI fest. Not that I would mind as long as the design of Atlantis was: believable, innovative, and Indy-ish.

Oh, haha. The Staff of Moses is great idea... so good that they have already used it in a certain capacity:

The Staff of Moses was the MacGuffin in the latest Indy videogame, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings. It was supposed to be a groundbreaking game for next-gen consoles, PS3, etc. Then all of a sudden it comes out in June, only for the older consoles, like the PS2.

None of this is confirmed yet, but it sounds fun, so here goes. smile

Indy 5 will start shooting next year and will focus on the Bermuda Triangle. Shia will be in it, and it will be "made in the old fashioned way rather than the CGI efforts of the last movie". Sounds great... except that Spielberg has already chosen his next movie. So the question is... who will direct? I of course hope Spielberg scraps everything in favor of Indy. razz

Sounds good to me, though I'm not too sure about it centring around the Bermuda triangle (religious artifacts always worked best). At any rate, I'm really hoping they've learned from their past mistakes with Indy 4 and give us one last great Indy film with this.

Pretty sure they said this exact same thing about Indy 4. People thought they were going to go out of their way to shoot on location and use practical effects, and then we got CG aliens and monkeys, and the raft going over the waterfall a dozen times.

I think a Bermuda triangle story would be good for Indy, but they would have to do it just right, and I don't have the most faith that they will. If they can go for the same campy style that Indy 4 had, but with less CG and more practical effects and location work, I think it would be a really good effort. They just need to remember what made Raiders so special, and realize that they can pull off something just as good, if not better, if they stick to what already works instead of trying new, crazy stuff. Not that they should rehash old stuff, just that they should use the techniques that made the originals great.

Yeah, it was very strange how much noise Spielberg & co made about doing it the 'old fashioned way' before Indy 4, and then the very first shot of the new movie is a rather bad CG gopher.
