Ford Ready to Crack Whip on ‘Indy 5’


If there was one thing fans complained about after seeing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, it was that the story diverted away from religious icons to aliens. If there were two things fans complained about it was that the story diverted away from religious icons and that swinging from vines is absurd. If there were three things fans complained about it was that the story diverted away from religious icons, swinging from vines was stupid, and those damned CGI gophers had to go. And an almost-fanatical devotion to the Pope.

So it’s reported with great hesitation that Harrison Ford has revealed to a French publication called Le Figaro (literally, The Figaro) that he, Spielberg and George Lucas have all agreed on what the next adventure will be. All that’s left is to put pen to paper, get Ford to approve of the script and for Spielberg to start renting camera equipment from himself.

Obviously by making the disgusting amount of money that it did, there was no doubt that there would be yet another installment. In fact, Ford posturing about script approval seems laughable considering the amount of money that’s still on the table. Then again, the guy is the entire franchise. On the other, other hand they could always CGI him in for a cameo of handing the whip over to Shia Labeouf‘s character.

Yeah, think about that and enjoy your nightmares, fanboys.

What do you think? Any guesses as to what Indiana Jones and the Half-Blood Prince will be about?
