    Us Indy fans have anticipated another Indiana Jones film for over a decade. We know now that one is being made. Unfortunately, Harrison Ford is getting older, like everyone else. One actor can only have so many face lifts, tummy tucks, oh I could make a list!! As much as most Indy fans think that Harrison is the only Indy, this could be the final chapter. I have a feeling that Harrison will pass his hat down to someone else(if any knowns, please comment).

    If you have any rumors,thoughts etc. tell them.

    No, they should stop at 4. Harrison Ford is the only one who should play Indy. I can't even imagine anyone else playing him as good.

    I think Indiana Jones 4 will be the last one Harrison Ford does. Age is slowly catching up with him.

    I hope 4 is the last. If Ford can't play the part, the movie shouldn't be made.

    First up I don't know if an Indy 5 is a good idea. But if it was to be made, I'd go and see it.

    Second up, is Harrison Ford retiring from acting after making Indy 4?

    If he isn't retiring, then why on earth would a replacement actor need be found for future Indy Jones movies?

    People get older, including action heroes. What's the big deal if Indy is old, played by an old actor?

    Exactly. That's why the Star Trek movies with the original cast works, they play their age and it's incorporated into the characters.

    Space Cowbowys is another great example. Gimme the old veteran good actor instead of the flavor of the month just pretty face any day.

    I really really really really doubt Indy5 with Harrison Ford will ever get made

    I hope that Indy 4 is the last of the Jones movies. If they want to have a few novels, no problem, though. I think that the movie life of that series needs to end.

    Older Indy wouldn't be Indy without Harrison Ford.

    I think he was talking about Indy passing down the fedora down to his son. There has been rumours that that would be used to keep the franchise going.

    If they make more than one, they might want to make them as close to the same time as they could, but with how long it's taken for them to get this story, I don't know how they would get two more so fast.
    On the other hand, as it was previously mentioned, there have been plenty of movies where, ahem, more mature actors have done stunts, etc. It's a matter of if they can get together (it has been quite a job to get them together now), get the stories, that kind of thing.

    They've been pretty much debunked (though anything is possible).

    See the [link=] [spoilers!] JUST THE FACTS: Everything that is known about Indiana Jones IV [/link] thread for statements concerning the "son" rumours.

    I feel bad for posting this since it sounds like conjecture, and especially since I don't have the source material on hand to prove it, but I have a book on Harrison Ford films which I believe I left with my brother in Michigan that sort of gives rise to hopes of an Indy V. I promise I will try to get the exact quote as soon as I can, but anyways, in the book they talk about Speilberg agreeing to do Raiders and then being a little bit squeamish about it after Lucas informed him that he planned it as a 5 part series. Now this may have been true in the early 80's, but as an Indy fan, I hope it's true. 4 seems like such an akward number to leave it on. Either do 5 too, or leave it at The Last Crusade. I will get back to you all on this.

    Lets just get Indy4 out of the way. Indy5 are you joking? He (Dr. Jones / Harrison Ford) would be so old he could play the part of a mummy if he drags the franchise any further.

    It pains me to say it, but I also agree that 4 should be the last...
