Harrison Ford Searches for Motivation on Fifth Indiana Jones Film

Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull may have been a mixed bag critically but it was dynamite at the box office, bringing in over $800 million dollars. But would Harrison Ford get the whip cracking for a fifth chapter of Indy? Maybe …

MTV Movies Blog talked to the man who’s the definition of the term rugged rebel about the possibilities of another adventure for Indiana Jones. Here’s what he had to say:

MTV: Is a fifth Indiana Jones film inevitable?

Ford: I don’t know. If we come up with a good idea…

Is the ball in George’s court at this point?

It is. That’s the process. With some general input he goes off and searches for the MacGuffin and then stumbles into a story. And at some point we have a chance to take a look at and give some input.

And he hasn’t found the MacGuffin yet?

No, we’re still in the primary stages.

The end of the last film leaves your character in a very intriguing position. He has a wife and a kid. Can he still be that man of adventure with those commitments?

And he’s seen something. Remember those are the only witness to what he’s seen. That’s kind of interesting.

Overall, I have enjoyed every Indy film I have seen to varying degrees. I could do without Shia LaBeouf swinging from trees but apparently George Lucas can’t make a film now without having someone do it. With any hope the rust will be off of the Indiana Jones franchise and the fifth chapter won’t be such a divided piece of work.

Are you up for a fifth Indiana Jones film? Do you want Shia LaBeouf to return?
