Indiana Jones 5 Announced For 2019

http://411mania.com/movies/indiana-j...nced-for-2019/

– Walt Disney Studios announced today that Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will reunite for Indiana Jones 5. Indiana Jones 5 is currently scheduled for a July 19th, 2019 release date, and Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce the film. Alan Horn, Chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, had the following to say about the announcement…

“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019. It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”

The Indian Jones franchise (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) has made $1.98 billion at the worldwide box-office.

Y'know. With current method actor Shia, I'm sure they can elevate the franchise to new heights then just nuking a fridge. There could be some jumping sharks and fried Coke involved.

There is only one appropriate response to that...

"JUST DO IT!"

They need to do the story structure similar to Godfather II and then you could essentially reboot the franchise after this one with the actor used for the flashbacks.

They could use the young actor they cast for the Han Solo reboot in an Indiana Jones reboot too. Man no wonder they're doing it, they'll get two for the price of one. A double-whammy, if you will.

They did something like that once, an episode of the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles had Harrison Ford playing Indiana Jones in 1950 Wyoming, and he was telling a story that flash back to his younger days.

It was this episode.

As long as Spielberg will try his best to return this franchise to its former glory, then I will be optimistic about this. I do believe that if J.J. Abrams could do it with Star Wars: The Force Awakens could do it, then maybe Spielberg can do the same with this film can well.

I remember eight years ago when Robert Iger, the CEO of Disney, was disappointed that The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian was underperforming at the box office. He contributed that film's disappointing total to being sandwiched between Iron Man and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

http://www.reuters.com/article/film-...35410820080529

Today he's obviously feeling happy because both of those franchises belong to his company.

Well we had heard about this for a long time but its nice to finally see it confirmed. I'm in the minority but I thought Crystal Skull was fine. Not as good as the first or third film but about the same as Temple of Doom. I liked Mutt and it made sense to pass the torch. Do we really want Harrison Ford in this movie, what will he be doing? he's too old. Having him in a supporting cast with a younger "Indiana" would've worked, too bad fans didn't allow that to happen.

I'd be ok with this, that could definitely work.

Didn't know about that. So how are the YIJC? I had only heard bad things about it so I never checked it out but now my curiosity is peaked.

I still think they waited way too damn long to bring this series back.

Granted, the story was kind of a mess (that's an understatement right there), but I think people would have been more forgiving if it'd come out ten years before it did. I liked that they went with a pulpy sci-fi vibe, rather than the same old school adventure schtick (although it can be great if done well), but yeah the movie was all over the place. And Harrison Ford didn't just look old, he looked like he felt old.

I still wish they had ran with Mutt being Indy's protege, taking up his mantle and whatnot. What are they gonna go with now in this new movie and the sequel it will undoubtedly get?

Mutt taking up the mantle would have been horrible. Indiana Jones isn't Batman.

I suspect if anything, future Indiana Jones movies will shift Indy into the background a bit as a "mission leader" role, with a "Team Indy" forming to do the legwork... probably with a recast Mutt in it.

I wonder if they'll bother using some of the "Old Indiana Jones Adventures" material -- e.g., him having an eye patch, kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, and bothering people with tales of his youth constantly.

With Lucas out of the picture now, maybe. He went in and scrapped all that stuff out when he did the blu-ray release.

Indiana Jones 5 Could Be Steven Spielberg’s Next Film

Atlantis would be cool. It's too bad they've already decided Mutt can't come back, I liked the character. It's a shame showbiz drove Shia LaBeouf a little crazy. Maybe he'll return to films someday.

It was worse, than previous three movies, but not exactly a horrible monstrosity.

Also, never understood major hatred that some people had for this movie because of aliens. So, magic and immortal knights and A-OK, but aliens are NO-NO, in the Jones'verse? Like, really?
Agreed. The introduction of aliens to this series was far from the worst thing to happen to it.

Quoted because this bears repeating. And TLJ was a complete rehash of ESB.

Well yeah I didn't mean Mutt should literally put on Indy's hat and jacket and start calling himself Indiana "Mutt" Jones or something but this franchise really needs someone younger to step in and start going on the adventures that Indy is too old for.

Like Cubed said several times in this thread, Harrison Ford is gonna be old as **** by the time this movie comes out, and if they want to be able to do an Indiana Jones 6 then they need to have a gameplan, before they're forced to just do IJ6 as Old Man Jones sitting in a chair by the fireside telling some kids about other adventures of his youth, seen in flashbacks. Which sucks because I feel like they'll likely do the thing that every movie seems to feel the need to do now and dangle a hook for a sequel at the end of IJ5, which they probably won't get a chance to explore, like the stupid subplot about Peter Parker's parents in the Amazing Spider-Man films.

In Star Wars Episode 7 and Blade Runner 2049, Harrison Ford didn't really do much than stand around or point a gun. He really had no action scenes, mostly dialogue where he would stand or sit talking.

Problem is Indiana Jones is an action franchise where you expect him to be jumping around, leaping, dodging traps, etc....I don't know how they'll do it unless they replace him with a stunt double every single action scene.

Delayed again. Insert comment from Cubed about Ford being too old to do this movie.
