>Indiana Jones 5 confirmed
>Spielberg says he won't replace Ford
How will this work? Will they just do the same thing as Crystal Skull and give him a younger co-star for all the action scenes?
If he actually tries to get in shape he could probably pull it off.
Everyone i've talked to about it has agrees that he was pretty damn great in TFA compared to Crystal Skull. I'd rather have an old Ford close the series than just jump into a reboot with a new actor.
He looked old as hell in TFA. pretty much all he did was shuffle along and punch one guy.
There's no point making new Indiana Jones, because the whole thing is based on Ford's charm. They should have known before making Crystal Skull that Shia would be no replacement.
>takes place in the 60's now
>Dr. Jones is a Professor at NYU
>he's heavily involved in the protests against the Vietnam war and in the Civil Rights movement
>the movie is a period-piece political drama about a man who once fought the Nazis coming to terms with his own nation turning into the same discriminatory evil he was against
Might be cool. No action, just a lot of Oscar-worthy speeches about oppression and imperialism.
This. I wouldn't even mind Shia again if he teamed up with this guy. The new Indiana Jones is a buddy movie. Like rush hour but circa 1960's and without Chris Tucker screeching into your ear for and hour and a half.
>I'd rather have an old Ford close the series than just jump into a reboot with a new actor.
Unlikely. They already set up the reboot with Shia Labeouf. Ford is going to take on a supporting role similar to Connery in Last Crusade, with Labeouf in the lead. Indy will die at the end and Labeouf will put his hat on, symbolizing the transition is now complete. 6 will be just Labeouf.
It will be indiana jones hopping around the south american jungle with cgi gophers.
The 50s setting in crystal skull would've been great for korean war and tibet stuff. Even tibet nazis, etc. They fucked up. They will fuck up again.
That's not the same thing though. A reboot ignores all the previous entries in the series to reset the characters and storylines, or if not reset at least go in a direction away form them, usually so they can retell them in a different way, which is what happened with Star Trek. Having Mutt take over doesn't really accomplish a similar thing.
I don't want to get in to an argument over this, I just think you're using the term reboot incorrectly, and i'm well aware that I could be wrong.
That's exactly what 4 should have been. Post war Tibet, with Nazis replaced by the invading Chinese, and "Kid" back as the sidekick rather than Laeorbouffx. Indiana Jones and the search for Shangri-La, which the Nazis believed to be somewhere around Tibet.
he actually kinda looks like his "dad" now
>mfw "dad" is still alive
If they brought him back form retirement, it could be GOAT.
i thought the rebooting fad had died down. i really dont care if the next indy film is along the lines of crystal skull. a new indu movie before ford is done would be a blessing.
pretty sure the illuminati are sharing their youth restoration elixir with him, you have to keep taking it and they control the source, they won't give him too much obviously, just enough to keep him ticking and make movies for their own personal amusement for a little while longer
sometimes I think the world is run by autists
There was already a Jurassic Park sequel last year. We don't need another.
>mfw they are going to pull a Young Indiana Jones and have Harrison Ford bookend the film
they should just do a prequel trilogy, have Harrison Ford bookend each movie, and then use the actor thats going to portray young Han Solo, to also portray the younger Indiana Jones
set it a while after the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles series, have him start his job as a Professor, and have him have his first adventure against the Nazis
Harrison is far too old now for the role, we will end up with another Crystal Skull
Honestly, I'd actually be happy if they stuck with Shia returning as Mutt. He's not necessarily a bankable actor nowadays but I'd respect them sticking with continuity than shuffling things around for the sake of "forget the old thing, this one's good for real this time" marketing.
honestly there is no way you can make a decent Indy movie under the ownership of Disney
I can understand it for SW and Marvel shit, but Indy is supposed to be somewhat gritty
I'm so tired of sequels shit that come in 20+ years after the main streak of movies
there is no way it can ever be good
>takes place in the 60's now
>Dr. Jones is still a professor
>has been away from adventures for years, close to retirement, just enjoying life with Marion, hearing from Mutt from time to time
>As the school's board changes, the university finds itself changing the focus
>Reforms are made, most of the staff is changed, the science lab has been expanded and is off limits
>Indy starts to suspect that something weird is going down
>At the new year's eve beneficial party, Indy meets a mysterious british man in a tuxedo, sticks out like a sore tumb
>Indy talks to him
>Who are you?
>Bond. James Bond.
