"Fly? Yes. Land? No!"
Ah, poor Harrison. Maybe that’s why he is always so grumpy.

Indiana Jones and the Self Referencing Fan Service
Plot? What plot? This movie is about cameos and squeezing in as many call backs to the past as possible.
As long as Harrison gets paid, he's on board!
Indiana Jones and the Jumped Shark
A culmination of every hair brained idea ever had for a IJ movie, peaking with Indy's mother being raised to the undead thanks to a communist coalition plot to resurrect Stalin
It's the late 60's you know Indy's going to the moon.
We all laugh but I could see a scenario where Dr. Jones is called to NASA to look at an object that was brought back from the surface of the Moon. It relates to something on Earth and sets up the main plot of the film. Indy never ventures into space but the idea of a mystery on the Moon being solved on Earth may have some merit.
The Ark of the Covenant was "not of this Earth." as Sallah once stated. They could do it again. A meteor perhaps that has some power like the Sankara stones? Heck what if they found a Sankara stone on the moon!
I say a lot of this in jest but exploring the idea could lead to an interesting story. If the film takes place around 1969 or into the early 70s the Moon could play a supporting role in the film. An eclipse could occur witch reveals a hidden location like The Hobbit or it gives the Macguffin it's power. Maybe something to do with the ocean and control of the tides. Going into the Ocean could be a nice contrast to the lunar landings that would be going on. We've never seen Indy going into the ocean to look for ruins and artifacts. That could come back around to the always suggested Atlantis rumors.

That’s how they bring the Nazis back into the plot.
The Fate of Atlantis. It has a nice ring to it.

As much as I like Fate of Atlantis...Already Taken! Video Game by LucasArts and Comic series by Dark Horse
Indy doesn't really have a set canon like Star Wars but they could easily classify Fate of Atlantis as "Legends" and adapt an Atlantis set story in their own way.
I think a story about Atlantis is missing from the Indy film canon. However, maybe there would be a problem with comparisons. It is unlike Lucasfilm to base a film off of a licensed property from over 20 years back.
I did come across a screenplay recently called "Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods" (2003) written by Frank Darabont based on a story by George Lucas. http://theraider.net/films/indy4/multimedia/cityofthegods.pdf
Indiana Jones and the Search for a Title
Indiana Jones and the House of Indiana Jones
Indiana Jones and the Mummies of Anaheim - set in the 1980s, Michael Eisner convinces Indy that a missing artefact is buried along with some long forgotten attractions underneath the current park at Disneyland. It's a ruse for the mummified Disney himself to absorb the life force of Indy's companions, giving him the strength to rejuvenate himself. But it's not enough as Uncle Walt intends to harvest the souls of all the children visiting the park, turning them into mummies while the park attractions come to life wreaking e.g. a giant Thumper causes an earthquake with his thumping, Jimminy Cricket turns into a swarm of ravenous locusts, or something.
If you don't like that there's Indiana Jones and the Hidden Treasures of Saddam Hussein (turns out they aren't WMDs).
SFX Magazine had an article on Indy in the new issue (came in the mail yesterday) and they called it Indiana Jones and the Thing of the Thing. It's as good a placeholder as any.

I really, really want a straight-up reboot, but if they're going to make this movie, then they probably need to pick something BIG as the Macguffin -- something like the Fountain of Youth (with the obvious thematic relevance) or Excalibur. I love ancient history and mythology, but I don't think Indy 5 is the time to search for some obscure artifact that no one's ever heard of.
