Steven Spielberg says he’s still planning to direct “Indy 5” w/ Harrison Ford as Indy…

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg did a Q&A session to promote their latest movie, “Bridge of Spies” and it looks like that Steven is still planning to direct Indy 5.

In the video in the link below, Steven said:

“We’ve gotta figure this out because now,” Spielberg says. “Tom is tied with Harrison Ford: Harrison and I did four movies, Tom and I have done four movies. Now I’ll probably do an Indy 5 with Harrison. It’ll be five for Harrison, four for Tom… [Then] I’ve got to make another one with Tom, so that will be five for Tom, five for Harrison. And I think I’m going to leapfrog that way for the rest of my career. With Daniel Day-Lewis in everything else!”

So it’s looking like Spielberg & Ford are gonna go ahead and make Indy 5 even without George Lucas being involved. Which is pretty cool actually. With Lucas no longer being involved, that will mean more creative writing control for Spielberg & Ford.

Now it’s looking like it maybe a possibility that Ford will be playing Indy again, this means that Ford will be reprising his roles to three of his most well-known characters: Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard. Yes, he’s still committed to playing Rick Deckard for the “Blade Runner” sequel too.

The question is will Harrison ever reprise his role to another famous character of his? That character is Jack Ryan. I doubt it ’cause Paramount is focused on a young Jack Ryan. Even though Harrison expressed interest in returning to the character before, I don’t think Paramount wants him back for whatever reason. Which is a shame ’cause I really loved “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger”.

It’ll be cool if Harrison comes back as Indy but they better NOT bring Shia Labeouf back. Oh please don’t bring Shia back ’cause he was terrible in “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”.
