According to Producer Frank Marshall, ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Is Still in the ‘Thinking Stages’

by Matthew Monagle 5 days ago
For a movie that hasn’t been written yet and is still four years away from its release, we sure seem to know a lot about the upcoming Indiana Jones movie. We know that both Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will return, John Williams will write the score, George Lucas isn’t writing the story, and Indiana Jones will not get killed at the end of the movie. We also know that Disney is tinkering with giving the Indiana Jones franchise the Star Wars treatment, possibly exploring a combination of prequels, sequels, and standalone films all taking place in the Indiana Jones universe.

With each passing year it becomes increasingly outrageous that Joe Cornish hasn’t directed a film since 2011’s Attack the Block, the fantastic sci-fi film that introduced us to an incredibly talented up-and-coming director. Cornish’s name has since been rumored for various projects, but only one of them ever seemed to stick: Snow Crash, an adaptation of Neal Stephenson’s acclaimed novel, which Cornish signed on to helm in 2012. We’ve heard next to nothing about the project since then, so we assumed that it might be off the table — and that’s where the good news comes in.

Producer Says ‘Indiana Jones’ Reboot Will Happen, But They Won’t Recast the Role

Since Disney bought the rights to Lucasfilm back in October of 2012, fans have been speculating about what it means for the future of Indiana Jones. In addition to the Star Wars rights, Disney has the rights to future Indiana Jones movies and, considering they paid $3 billion, they’re going to exploit those rights. Everyone from Chris Pratt to Bradley Cooper has been rumored to be taking over for Harrison Ford, but producer Frank Marshall says not so fast. There will be more Indiana Jones movies, but they will never recast that famous role.

Frank Marshall, the mega-producer behind the Back to the Future franchise, Gremlins, The Goonies and several of Steven Spielberg’s films, has his sights set on a new genre project that would blend the sensibilities of some of his earlier efforts with the classic slasher horror concept. Marshall is teaming up with the guys behind the new Friday the 13th reboot for a film called Cropsey, which has nothing to do with that documentary from a few years ago.

Last year we were all pretty surprised when ‘Goonies’ director Richard Donner announced that he was working on developing a sequel to the classic 1985 film. Since then, we haven’t heard a whole lot about the project, though Josh Brolin did express interest in returning for the sequel. In a new interview, producer Frank Marshall gives us our first real update yet, and seems to indicate that perhaps the ‘Goonies’ sequel isn’t really a sequel.

It's crazy to think that production on 'Jurassic Park 4' is officially wrapped, considering the idea seemed like a faint glimmer in the eye of Steven Spielberg when he announced its development a few years ago, but director Colin Trevorrow's latest update from the set makes it official. Now it's time for post-production!

'Star Wars: Episode 7' Director: How Far Away Are We From the Big Reveal?

by Nick Romano November 13, 2012 @ 4:33 PM
Since 'Star Wars: Episode 7' was announced during Disney's recent purchase of Lucasfilm, fans have been chiming in as to who they want taking over the director's chair. Some movie directors, consequently, have been pronouncing publicly their own personal desires to helm the film. In fact, there's so much hubbub about who should follow in George Lucas' footsteps that we've had to keep a running power ranking as to who the front-runners are exactly.
But how close are we really to when the official announcement will be made in regards to the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' director?

'Indiana Jones 5' Probably Not Happening Says Producer

by Sean O'Connell July 26, 2012 @ 10:55 AM
Indiana Jones fans are a tough crowd to please. Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford put the perfect cap on a trilogy with ‘The Last Crusade.’ Fans ask for more. So the team reunites for ‘Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,’ and nobody likes it. We want more. Can we expect a fifth ‘Indiana Jones,’ as is often rumored? Producer Frank Marshall has an update.
