Rumors About the Fifth Indiana Jones Movie Surface

The fourth entry into the Indiana Jones franchise, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a steaming pile of fail. Yes, that is just an opinion, but it is one shared by many. Although the movie was a box office success, it was almost universally dismembered by the critics who claimed that the magic and the sense of wonder were gone, possibly due to new filming techniques and changing tastes of moviegoers. Fans just saw Indy survive a nuclear blast by hiding in a freaking refrigerator. By the time Shia LaBeouf was seen swinging from vine to vine with a pack of monkeys, the dream of Indy was dead and had been desecrated.rumors about the fifth indiana jones movie surface kotks refrigerator collectible thumb 550x327 27039

Even LaBeouf admitted that the movie was bad.

“We [Harrison Ford and LaBeouf] had major discussions. He wasn’t happy with it either,” the actor recently told reporters at Cannes. ”Look, the movie could have been updated. There was a reason it wasn’t universally accepted.”

But if you somehow managed to squeeze some enjoyment from the rancid fruit of the Crystal Skull, or if you have enough love for Indy that you can overlook a movie that HI-lariously had someone through a snake to Indy instead of a rope, then this news is for you.

The New Zealand website Scoop is claiming that a source has leaked details about a fifth Indiana Jones movie that could begin filming next year. Even if the source is absolutely correct, details could change, so take this with a healthy dose of skepticism until we either hear a confirmation, or we can confirm that it has been denied. If you are a movie purist that refuses the most meager of possible spoilers, do not read below.

“Indiana Jones 5 will begin shooting next year, and much of the plot line will be centered around the Bermuda Triangle, an area over the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft are said to have disappeared,” the report claimed.

The report also claims that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are almost done with the script, and that both Harrison Ford and LaBeouf are ready to ready and willing to rejoin the cast.

The source also has a tantalizing line about the shape of the franchise itself, “This looks like being an emotional and exciting conclusion to the franchise, with Indy facing his biggest challenge yet.”

Could this be the end to Indiana Jones? And if it is, would that be a bad thing? Only something that was this beloved can generate the level of bitter disappointment that the most recent Indiana Jones movie did. Most people hated it passionately, because we passionately loved the originals. Maybe, with luck, lots and lots of luck, Indy can stand tall again.
