The fourth installment isn’t even in theaters yet, but George Lucas is already talking up a potential fifth installment in the Indiana Jones franchise. In an interview with FOXNews, the director revealed that he has an idea to make more Indy films, but with a twist, Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf) would be the lead character:
“I haven’t even told Steven or Harrison this,” Lucas told FOXNews. “But I have an idea to make Shia [LeBeouf] the lead character next time and have Harrison [Ford] come back like Sean Connery did in the last movie. I can see it working out.”
For his part, LaBeouf wasn’t against the idea as he expressed interest, though with some reservations, to MTV:
“I don’t think a Mutt spinoff would be as big as Indiana Jones,” LaBeouf told MTV. “[But] fingers crossed!”
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hits theaters this Thursday. Reviews are starting to trickle in and, thankfully, they’re mostly positive (It’s sitting at 81% currently at RT). So who else is excited for Indy?
