work beginning on new Indiana Jones before Christmas!?

work beginning on new Indiana Jones before Christmas!?

Is the Man with the Whip headed back before the cameras… this year!?

A report at Den of Geek – largely concerned with the lengthy contracts Lucasfilm have signed some model-makers to (largely because they need them for a slew of new “Star Wars” projects) – says Pinewood studios have reserved space for a fifth Indiana Jones movie. While that’s not to say a fifth ‘Indy’ will film this year, it does suggest that one could be in the works for the very near future.

Don’t get too excited though, “Indiana Jones 5” is far from a ‘go’ project (and as far we know, there isn’t even a script yet).

Says the site :

To address the Indiana Jones point specifically: work on that has been mooted as a possible job as part of those long-term contracts. It’s very much being described as a “possible lead in to another Indy”, but nothing more than that.

Just because space has been booked well in advance doesn’t mean that the film will happen of course. Still, we’ve sat on this information since before Christmas, and it would at least tie into what Alan Horn of Disney said in December, that the next Indiana Jones film – to which Disney now holds full rights – is many years off. It would make sense to include it as part of a bulk LucasFilm booking at Pinewood (considering the firm’s commitment to and investment in UK facilities), just to be on the safe side (and it’d bring the rate down, we’d imagine).

Disney has expressed interest in continuing the “Indiana Jones” series, but Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas (if he’d even be involved?) have yet to say yay or nay.
