In theaters May 2008
Pinch me. Fuckin’ Pinch me. Make it hurt like a dominatrix giving two-for-ones.
Word has just fluttered online – coincidentally only moments after I chastised them for the lengthy delay in “Caffeinated Clint” – that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have finally announced production on “Indiana Jones 4”.
Yep, they’re still filming next year. They have a script. They have a star. They have a saddle. They have a studio. They have a stretcher [for Harrison].
“It’s going to be fantastic. It’s going to be the best one yet,” The guy who pushed Jar Jar Binks on us, tells The Associated Press.
Lucas, who said part of the film will shoot in Los Angeles, kept mum about the plot, but said that the latest action flick will be a “character piece” that will include “very interesting mysteries. I think it’s going to be really cool”.
All we’ve gotta do now is, well, hope and pray that Lucas doesn’t stuff this one up. If he doesn’t, it could be the most exciting thing about May 2008 – and the cinematic blockbuster that Harrison Ford needs to regain his crown as the sovereign of cinema.
And on that note, Happy New Year!
