Turning up at last night’s Sony Ericsson Empire Awards, “Star Wars” producer Rick McCallum confirmed to Empire Online that George Lucas has approved an “Indiana Jones IV script and returned it to Spielberg for more polishing.
He also says the Star Wars TV show is a go – “That’s not going to happen probably for another year and a half while we develop scripts and everything else. But it’s fantastic; we’ve got some incredible writers. It’s going to be much darker, much more character-based, and I think it’s going to be everything the fans always wanted the prequels to be. They’ll be one-hour episode. It takes place between Episodes III and IV. It’s going to be all-new characters, maybe a few bounty hunters in there to start the series off”.
Lucas is currently penning the script for his long-cherished World War II fighter pilots film “Red Tails” before sending it out to other writers towards years end and then gets filming on it next year.
Ohh! A new film by George Lucas not dealing with Star Wars and its about World War II, peeks my interest very much!
Star Wars show sounds awesome.
And Indy IV should be good if they ever fucking do it!
