    It shouldn't affect the Star Wars TV show at all since production on shouldn't clash with production on Indy IV, and Lucas only has a role as a producer in Indy IV. Spielberg is in works to do a JP4, supposedly with Keira Knightley, and once again as director. We'll just have to wait and see, but to be honest i can't see Indy 4 or Jurassic Park 4 coming out any time soon. I don't think there will be an Indy 4, there's no way that they're going to get going within 2 years at the rate they're going. Expect another wave of Munichs, Terminals and WotWs to pop up for Spielberg.

    Has anyone come up with a reliable source for this "2 year timeframe" quote of Ford's?

    It seems we'll have to wait for Indy IV ...

    Steven Spielberg will take a year off. ( Source : Darkhorizons )

    Harrison should'nt even have given a 2 year limit. He should of just said "I'm out"...and this is coming from a fan who wants to see it.

    Lucas & Spielberg have had more then enough time to get it together. Spielberg has made a billion movies I feel like since I first heard about indy 4.

    From darkhorizons.com, this morning:

    Turning up at last night's Sony Ericsson Empire Awards, "Star Wars" producer Rick McCallum confirmed to Empire Online that George Lucas has approved an "Indiana Jones IV script and returned it to Spielberg for more polishing.

    2007 would be the earliest, though it's getting tight timewise. The 3 principals have made statements lately (last one was around GDC) that the story is approved and just needs the final touches. But to go from that to a shooting script and pre production might take a while.

    Apparently Connory will be announcing his retirement from acting at his AFI award dinner.
    Which might mean another total rewrite for this already rewritten beyond belief script. Development Hell with a vengence.

    As i understand it, the script was written with Henry Jones sr. in it. But now Connery is supposedly retiring. This means either the part will be recast or the script rewritten. I think the former is as likely as Ford being recast. Therefore a rewrite would be needed, which should effectively destroy the structure of the script. Considering how long it took to get the script "just right" this should mean at least a few years, which should effective destroy the scheduling that has also taken years to get "just right". I fear Indy 4 may never happen.

    Hey, don't lose faith.

    Heck, Rocky 6 is coming out in December. After that, I can't give up on anything.

    Connery can announce his retirement without actually stopping work that very instant you know. He may choose to announce he is to retire after his 'next project'.

    And from what I have gleaned from the info on the script so far, Connery's part was more of a cameo than a supporting cast mamber, so writing him out may not be out of the question should it come to that.

    From the opening post;

    Spielberg adds, "Sean Connery as Indy's pop will be back for a few scenes, and it's set in the early '50s. That's all I'm saying, and I've already said too much."

    Ah, such a relief. Connery may stop by for a few days of filming if it is just a couple scenes, even if he has officially retired.

    Hell, Spielberg could probably take a bluescreen and a few props to Connery's castle in Scotland and film him at home for a day... :p

    We haven't seen Indy in deep Africa or in any snowy environments yet. That could make for some interesting locales for the series.

    or in any snowy environments yet

    Except the time when Harrison Ford appeared in the Young Indiana Jones two-parter (snow covered Montana?).

    Wasn't it snowing in Raiders when he went and visited Marion? They also slid down the snow in Temple of Doom when they fell out of the plane. Granted, neither were really long scenes in the environment, but there was snow.

    Another great cameo could involve Mel Gibson and Danny Glover showing up and making "I'm too old for this s***" cracks with Indy. Bruce Willis's John McClane could also show up with a six-pack and say "Shoudv'e waited for me!".

    We'll have a "Grumpy Old Action Hero" party going on.

    Final Indy Script Soon

    The next and final Indiana Jones adventure, starring Harrison Ford in his familiar role, is expected to bow in the summer of 2008. To keep that schedule, production should commence in early 2007.


    And then there is this at ComingSoon.net

    Steve Sansweet, Lucasfilm's Head of Fan Relations, talked about upcoming Star Wars events and Indiana Jones 4 at Comic Con:

    ?The current status is that Steven Spielberg is having another script written right now by David Koepp,? Sansweet told the crowd at Comic-Con, ?and we are all hoping that that script is delivered in the next couple of months, and that Steven and Harrison and George like it, and that we start production ? pre-production at least ? sometime late this year, or early next year. But again, we?ve been close to that several times, so it?s silly that anybody says, ?Oh yeah, I know that they?re definitely going to do it, or they?re definitely not gonna do it.? Right now, we really don?t know, but we all have our fingers crossed. I think we?re closer than we ever have been before, and so we?re hoping we see a new Indy movie in the next couple of years.?

    It seems like everytime one or more of the stakeholders signs off on the script, another kills it and starts over.

    This movie is dead.

    I was flipping through the Mel Gibson People magazine in the docs office yesterday and there was an interview with Harrison Ford talking about Indy IV.
    He said that they acknowledge the passing of time and are no longer fighting the Nazis. That it takes place in the 50s I believe.
    That's pretty much all it said.
    Maybe someone has this and can type the exact interview out...

    I think we need to add the relevant information from this to our little list.

    Given all the previous rumours and plot snippets and cameos are now irrelevent, probably worth locking this one and starting afresh with a new JUST THE FACTS thread.
