    'Indy 4' for May 2008

    Indiana Jones 4 Coming May 2008!

    December 29, 2006



    George Lucas said Friday that filming of the long-awaited Indiana Jones 4 will begin next year with Harrison Ford set to star again. Lucas said he and Steven Spielberg recently finalized the script for the film.

    "It's going to be fantastic. It's going to be the best one yet," the 62-year-old filmmaker said during a break from preparing for his duties as grand marshal of Monday's Rose Parade.

    Exact film locations have not been decided yet, but Lucas said part of the movie will be shot in Los Angeles.

    The fourth chapter of the "Indiana Jones" saga, which will hit theaters in May 2008, has been in development for over a decade with several screenwriters taking a crack at the script, but it only recently gained momentum.

    Lucas kept mum about the plot, but said that the latest action flick will be a "character piece" that will include "very interesting mysteries."

    "I think it's going to be really cool," Lucas said.

    At the inaugural Rome Film Festival in October, the 64-year-old Ford said he was excited to team up with Lucas and Spielberg again for the fourth "Indiana Jones" installment. Ford said he was "fit to continue" to play the title role despite his age.

    Ford played Indiana Jones in 1981's Raiders of the Lost Ark, 1984's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

    I see Indy going after the real Maltese Falcon and rubbing shoulders with Bogey in 40's Hollywood.

    After years of waiting for approved scripts, it's nice to see they finally got a story that both Spielberg and Lucas like. Hopefully they will stick with the original plan and use stunt men rather than a bunch of computer effects.

    Can you dig it? Fourth 'Indy' in '08

    By Gregg Kilday
    The Hollywood Reporter
    Jan 2, 2007

    Nineteen years after chasing down the Holy Grail in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," Harrison Ford will return to the big screen in the character of the globe-trotting archeologist in May 2008.

    Producer George Lucas and director Steven Spielberg confirmed details of the project Monday after Lucas tipped off the media to Indiana Jones' imminent return as he prepared to serve as grand marshal of the Rose Parade in Pasadena.

    After years spent in script development, a fourth installment of the famously successful franchise is set to begin production in June in locations around the world and in the U.S.

    Although he has been developing other projects, including a biopic about Abraham Lincoln with Liam Neeson attached to star, Spielberg has decided the "Indiana Jones" sequel will be his next directorial outing. Helping Spielberg choose his next directing commitment had been a primary goal of new DreamWorks CEO Stacey Snider (HR 6/23).

    "George, Harrison and I are all very excited," Spielberg said. "We feel that the script was well worth the wait. We hope it delivers everything you'd expect from our history with Indiana Jones."

    The film will be produced by Lucasfilm Ltd. and released worldwide by Paramount Pictures, the parent company of DreamWorks. Although reps from the companies involved did not address the question of financing Monday, Paramount execs have said that the studio expected to co-finance the project with Lucasfilm.

    Frank Marshall will serve as producer, with Lucas and Kathy Kennedy joining him as executive producers. Longtime Spielberg associates, Marshall was credited in a producing capacity on the three earlier films, and Kennedy served as associate producer on the past two.

    "Working with Steven, Frank, Kathy and the 'Indy' crew is like working with family," Lucas said. "These films are such great fun to make. I'm looking forward to reuniting with the team and starting this new journey."

    David Koepp, who has penned such previous Spielberg projects as "Jurassic Park" and "War of the Worlds," wrote the screenplay that finally got the stamp of approval from Lucas and Spielberg. An earlier screenplay by Frank Darabont had been shelved when Lucas turned thumbs down on it.

    For the moment, the title of the new film as well as its story line are being kept under wraps. In August, however, Lucas told Empireonline.com, "I discovered a McGuffin. I told the guys about it and they were a little dubious about it, but it's the best one we've ever found. ... Unfortunately, it was a little too 'connected' for the others. They were afraid of what the critics would think. They said, 'Can't we do it with a different McGuffin? Can't we do this?' and I said 'No.' So we pottered around with that for a couple of years. And then Harrison really wanted to do it and Steve said, 'Okay.' I said, 'We'll have to go back to that original McGuffin and take out the offending parts of it and we'll still use that area of the supernatural to deal with it.' "

    In an interview with MTV.com, Lucas also said that the project will acknowledge Harrison's age; the actor is currently 64. In a statement, Ford said he is ready for another action-packed turn as the death-defying archeologist. "I'm delighted to be back in business with my old friends," he said. "I don't know if the pants still fit, but I know the hat will."

    Although a spokesman for Spielberg said Monday that no casting has begun, Lucas and Ford have said that they would like to include Sean Connery, who played Indiana Jones' father, Professor Henry Jones, in "The Last Crusade." "We are writing him in whether he wants to do it or not," Lucas told "Access Hollywood" when Connery was honored in June with the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award.

    It also is not known whether the project will be shot digitally, like Lucas' recent "Star Wars" movies, or on film, the medium Spielberg prefers.

    "Raiders of the Lost Ark," the first film in the series, was released in 1981, followed by "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" in 1984 and "Last Crusade" in 1989. The three movies have earned 14 Academy Award nominations, seven Oscars and grossed more than $1.182 billion worldwide.

    A release date was not announced, but the past two films in the series opened shortly before the Memorial Day weekend. Currently, the May 2008 lineup includes Paramount's "Iron Man," from Marvel Enterprises; Buena Vista's "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" from Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media; and Warner Bros. Pictures' "Speed Racer," from Warners, Silver Pictures and Village Roadshow.

    David Koepp and the Press Blockade

    Koepp is under strict orders not to blow Indiana Jones’ cover. But as someone who was inspired to become a screenwriter by Raiders of the Lost Ark, writing Episode 4 definitely ranks as a sweet gig.

    Wednesday, January 17, 2007 at 11:45 AM
    By Daniel Robert Epstein


    Although screenwriter David Koepp jokes that the Dreamworks secret police will track him down if he reveals anything about the upcoming sequel Indiana Jones 4, he was able during a recent interview with FilmStew to drop a few pebble-sized hints.


    “I spent about a year on it, first doing drafts with Steven and then doing drafts with Steven and George,” he explains. “It was a lot of fun. The first thing is that you realize this is a beloved character, probably one of the most in film history, and a lot of people are going to be angry no matter what I do.”

    Indiana Jones: the crusade to get Connery

    BRIAN PENDREIGH
    Scotsman.com
    January 21, 2007

    IT'S got Nazis, whips and gigantic, rolling boulders - now all we need is Sir Sean Connery.

    Five years after apparently closing the dressing room door on his acting career, Connery has confirmed he is considering returning to the silver screen to reprise one of his most popular roles.

    Yes No Yes No Yes No

    The actor says he will read the script for the fourth Indiana Jones movie and, if he likes what he sees, will appear once more as Indiana's father, Dr Henry Jones.

    Connery remains one of the world's most celebrated and bankable movie stars and getting him back in front of the camera for Indiana Jones would be a massive coup for producer George Lucas.

    Connery has repeatedly insisted he has retired from movies, following a miserable experience on The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen in 2002, when he repeatedly clashed with the film's inexperienced director.

    But speaking from his home in the Bahamas, Connery told Scotland on Sunday that he had already had discussions about returning to the big screen in the epic adventure series that has grossed 700m in cinemas worldwide.

    The new Indiana Jones film is due to shoot this summer, and after being approached by Lucas, Connery admits he is seriously considering it.
    Asked directly if he thought he would be back in front of the cameras this summer as Dr Jones, he answered: "Perhaps."

    Choosing his words carefully, Connery then added: "At the moment there's nothing decided. I haven't got the script. Everything depends on the script."

    Connery made no mention of financial demands, suggesting money is not his top priority, though he could expect a fee of 10m or more and possibly a share of the gross.

    Connery has fond memories of his previous Indiana Jones outing, in The Last Crusade almost 20 years ago.

    Steven Spielberg, who directed then, and will direct the new film, once famously said: "There are seven genuine movie stars in the world today, and Sean is one of them."

    The third and most recent instalment in the action adventure series, Last Crusade was also the highest grossing. Many commentators put its success down to the witty repartee between Connery and Harrison Ford, who played his son "Indy".

    There are only 14 years between them - Ford is 64 and Connery 76 - but that was part of the charm. They both played academics-***-adventurers. They were professional rivals, and even rivals in love.
    Connery retains a unique status, both in Scotland and in Hollywood. "We are writing him in whether he wants to do it or not," Lucas said on an American TV show recently.

    Subsequently Connery said the only way he would do it was if the production company made him "an offer I couldn't refuse". He has repeatedly used the quip from The Godfather when asked if there is any chance of him ever making another movie.

    Various other possible storylines for a fourth instalment have come to nothing. Then, after all the speculation, rumours and false starts, came the news that Indiana Jones fans had been waiting for.

    It was finally confirmed a few weeks ago that a new film will definitely shoot this summer, prompting widespread speculation about whether Lucas, Spielberg and Ford can entice Connery to make a comeback.
    Filming is scheduled to start in June, but no plot details have been revealed and even the title remains unknown. Ford is confirmed for his role. If Connery also gets involved, the film will have an unusually elderly double act at its heart, though Lucas did describe it as a "character piece".

    "It's going to be fantastic. It's going to be the best one yet," said the legendary producer, who also created the Star Wars movies.
