Harrison Ford talks Indiana Jones 5

Posted by LiveFor on January 12, 2010

We all know that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a crushing disappointment to many Indy fans. It had a few enjoyable moments, but it was deeply flawed in many ways and just didn’t have enough classic Indy moments.

Although no script has been written for the fifth film Harrison Ford has been chatting to MTV about what he would like in the next installment of Indiana Jones – I hope there are no swinging monkeys.

“I don’t think I’ll do it in a wheelchair,” said Ford “George [Lucas] is working on an idea, and if it comes to a fruitful stage, all of us are very interested in making another.”

Now, Ford is promising that the idea Lucas has for the fifth film is outrageous.

“Yeah,” he said when reminded of a quote he gave saying that Lucas’ idea was “crazy but great.” Does he want to elaborate? “No,” he responded.

“Some of the best ideas are crazy ideas, you know?” he conceded.

“I think it would be interesting to advance the understanding of the character, as we always have had that ambition throughout the series,” Ford said of what he needs to see in an “Indy 5” script. “I think it would be interesting to deepen the relationship between he and his son [Mutt, played by Shia LaBeouf] and play on that relationship. … It’s full of opportunity. The series is full of opportunity.”

“I think [scenes with a married Indy and Marion] would be nice grace notes,” admitted the actor, who will next be seen in “Extraordinary Measures,” a January 22 drama.

“We’ll see what we come up with.
“Karen [Allen]’s a wonderful actress, I’ve always enjoyed working with her,”
he added. “I’m hoping that there’ll be a part for all of us in the next one.”

To sum up Ford would like more Mutt and George Lucas has a crazy idea for the next sequel. Anyone else feel a little worried about that?

Of course they could easily side step Mutt and the marriage by setting the fifth film before the fourth. They did it with Temple of Doom being set before Raiders.

What would you want in a fifth Indiana Jones film? What could he be searching for this time?

    I read the Darabont script, Kingdom of the Gods, this week. The one everybody but George loved, the one that the internet said should have been made instead of Crystal Skull.

    The story is virtually identical. There are even a few moments in Crystal that stand out better than in Kingdom. Indy is over his fear of snakes in Kingdom but he had no son. The lead lined fridge is even in Kingdom.

    The point is, it’s not all Lucas! Ford and Spielberg had to OK Crstal Skull too, and they are just as much to blame!

      Valid point. They are all guilty. I think it was everyone going “Hey this is great” but not wanting the first to admit that it wasn’t quite right
