    Does anybody know the specifics of Spielbergs involvement with Dreamworks? I know when they created it that there was some kind of clause or agreement that forbade him from working on any film that that was non-Dreamworks. I know when he did 'The Lost World' there was a big hubbub over this and that it was a joint Universal/Dreamworks deal in the end. So would that mean that Indy IV would be a joint Lucasfilm LTD./Dreamworks SKG/Paramount Pictures deal?

    I don't understand the whole business structure of Dreamworks. My understanding is that SKG are investors along with many others (Paul Allen being a notable one). Spielberg CAN go outside of Dreamworks to make a movie. Remember, he almost made HARRY POTTER, a Warner prods. While I don't know for sure, I don't think Dreamworks will have a stake in Indy 4.

    Spielberg didn't make Harry Potter.
    He's part owner of Dreamworks, so Indy 4 will
    be a Lucasfilm/Dreamworks production plus whoever else helps finance it.

    ...he almost made HARRY POTTER...

    Spielberg didn't make Harry Potter.

    Almost it the keyword there. ;)

    And I doubt it'll have anything to do with Dreamworks. It will most likely be Lucasfilm, Ltd. and Paramount, just like the other three.
