Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull producer Frank Marshall told Empire that ‘Indy 5′ is moving closer to the script development stage:
“It’s really about the script,” says the veteran Indy producer. “Once we see that, we’ll see. We’re not going to wait another 20 years. We’d all love to make another one. I’m anxious to hear the idea!”
Marshall added that Spielberg, Ford and Lucas are all on board for the fifth outing: “Yeah. We had a great time making the last one and, as Harrison said, we need to make this one soon. We’re not getting any younger.”, although he cautioned that until “there’s a script, nothing’s definite…”
Earlier in the week star Shia LaBeouf first revealed that there was movement for the sequel in an interview with BBC: “Steven [Spielberg] just said that he cracked the story on it, and I think they’re gearing it up,” he said.
Despite lukewarm reaction by many fans and critics, the film did manage to gross an impressive $786.6 million worldwide so talk of a sequel isn’t very surprising.
