Saw this and I guess I’ll add it to the list of Indy V posts that I have on here (George Lucas on a Fifth Indiana Jones, Indiana Jones 5?, Indy 5 news?, and Indy V?) I seem to be running out of ways of saying Indy V. But the same thing happened with Indy IV. I remembered when I had it with Indy IV news and I gave up on posting them (Indiana Jones IV still on the table) but, I really think they’ll probably finish Indy V. Kingdom of the crystal skull sucked but I’d still go see a fifth one. Its Indy!
Anyway, here is Shia LaBeouf talking about playing Mutt Williams again, from comingsoon.net:
Mutt Williams to Return in Indiana Jones V?Source: ShowbizSpyAugust 20, 2010
Shia LaBeouf has plans to once again star alongside Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones as his son, Mutt Williams, says a report from ShowbizSpy.
The actor is quoted as saying that he’s been pitched the idea for the fifth film in the franchise by Steven Spielberg himself.
“They’re script writing right now,” said LaBeouf, “…[I]t sounds crazy. It sounds really cool.”
Though it’s impossible to say how long the writing process might take, LaBeouf’s comments seem to be the first confirmation that a fifth Indiana Jones adventure will indeed be a sequel to 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, for example, was technically a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark, a storytelling technique that George Lucas and Spielberg don’t seem to have plans to revisit.
If you read this, it looks as if this quote “LaBeouf’s comments seem to be the first confirmation that a fifth Indiana Jones adventure will indeed be a sequel to 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”Â explains what the fifth part is going to be. But, what else could it be? Harrison Ford is too old to play something younger than the version of Indy he played in IV…but I just hope its better than IV.
