    Not only. Lucas was distracted by Young Indy, and then by the prequels. And Spielberg was very busy.

    Also, IIRC, I believe the two directors went thru several rewrites where they weren't really happy with the script. That also accounted for several years worth of delays.

    TLC went through several writers too, but there was no such delay. Because work on it did not stop.

    Work on KOTCS was interrupted for a long time, just because of the busyness of George and Steven.

    For now, the only Indiana Jones style movie that we are getting is Uncharted the movie.

    It's kinda ironic that Uncharted game was one of the main reasons that killed the xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Indiana Jones and the Staff Of Kings.

    If Uncharted movie becomes really great and successful then I think that might make the competition harder for Indiana Jones 5.

    I think the vast imitators of Indy over the years make it more difficult for a new Indy to appear fresh. There's been the Romancing the Stone series, the Mummy series and the Tomb Raider series off the top of my head.

    To be fair some of them have dropped into obscurity. I barely remember the most recent Tomb Raider, let alone the Angelina Jolie ones.

    What is worrying to me is how this movie seems to also be affected by Disney the same way TFA was. When you have both Lucas and Spielberg getting out of their all-time franchises due to backstage mess with the studio, you know who is to blame.

    I've been mentally preparing myself for Connery's passing for a while now as he was 90 but it is so sad to hear the news. What a career.

    He really helped make Last Crusade my favorite of all the Indys.

    Even though this is one of his worst movies I really love this scene. It really shows that even in the stupid movies he could act well.


    I wished that at very least he appeared in the wedding scene of Indiana Jones 4.
