Spielberg no longer directing Indy 5 but what’s the real reason???

In my opinion, this is bad and I think Steve is making a huge mistake. I remember that Spielberg, Lucas and Ford has been talking about doing Indy 5 ever since the 4th one, “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”… but since Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney this means Disney owns Lucasfilm now. Therefor, it also means that Disney owns the Indy franchise.

There could be many reasons why Spielberg is no longer interested… maybe the script having problems still and he isn’t 100% with it yet… either that or he doesn’t feel comfortable without George being around ’cause George was in charge of the story for the first 4 films. It could be any reason. Maybe he feels he doesn’t have what it takes to direct an Indy film anymore.

Steven Spielberg Won’t Direct ‘Indiana Jones 5,’ James Mangold in Talks to Replace (EXCLUSIVE)

Anyhow, I think Indy 5 is gonna flop in the box office pretty badly now that Spielberg is out. In my opinion, no other director but Spielberg directs the Indy movies. Replacing a director for the Indy films is a joke really. Indy is Spielberg’s baby.

A different director takes over, there’s gonna be a different style and no other director will be able to match Spielberg’s style of directing ’cause every director is different.

And also, they better make this movie soon ’cause the longer they wait, the older Harrison gets ’cause that man is getting older. I know these guys want to take their time with the script but Harrison’s age… he’s 77 now.

I’m a huge Indiana Jones fan… love them all even the 4th one “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” but “Raiders of the Lost Ark” will always be the best one of the series. “Raiders” is a classic and an essential.

I hope Indy 5 will be good and it’ll probably end up being a passing of the torch kind of story. I hope they don’t do the “sci-fi” thing next time, though.

Indiana Jones 5 is finally confirmed with Steven Spielberg returning to direct and Harrison Ford will play Indy once again!

While announcing the release date for “Star Wars Episode IX” which is the final film of the new Star Wars trilogy, Disney & Lucasfilm finally confirmed “Indiana Jones 5”. Best of all Steven Spielberg is returning to the director’s chair for Indy 5 and Harrison is once again playing Indy. Indy 5 is set for a July 10th, 2020 release date.

What I like the most about Indy 5 is that George Lucas is no longer in charge so that means more creative freedom for Spielberg and Ford. It’s gonna be interesting to see how Spielberg is gonna pull off an Indy film without Lucas involved for sure. I’m a huge Indiana Jones fan, loved all 4 Indy movies…. yes, I even thought, “Crystal Skull” was real good despite the negative critics of that film. I will always think “Raiders of the Lost Ark” will be the best Indy film ever made, though.

At almost 75 do you think Harrison still has what it takes to play Indy? Yes, absolutely. I think Harrison can still do action scenes and his own stunts quite well. He seems to play Han Solo quite well in, “The Force Awakens” movie. Since Han Solo is gone Harrison won’t be playing in SW: Episode 8 and 9 so it’s looking his next movie is gonna be Indy 5.

Will Indy 5 be a continuation of “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”? Probably will but I hope they don’t bring Shia Labeouf back, though.

They need to make the next Indy movie more like “Raiders”. Make it a serious film like “Raiders” was. The next Indy movie will probably be an action movie like they all are but I hope they leave the science fiction stuff out of it this time.

I’m glad Indy 5 is finally happening ’cause Spielberg and Ford has been talking about it for years. They better get to work on it soon ’cause Harrison is getting older. I think they will get to work on it right away. Glad a new Indy film is happening, celebrate by listening to the theme song below!

Indiana Jones 5 will be continuation of “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” so Shia Labeouf and Karen Allen may have to return…

Not surprisingly Spielberg is planning a continuation of the “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” Indy 4 ’cause if you looked at the way that movie ended, it looked like it opened for another film. They won’t be doing a prequel to “Raiders” which kind of sucks. Since they are doing a continuation of “Crystal Skull” that means Shia Labeouf and Karen Allen maybe returning for the next installment. Yes, that means Mutt Williams and Marion Ravenwood would probably return.

So from the looks of things, it looks like that Indy will be passing the torch to his son, Mutt Williams ’cause if you looked at the way “Crystal Skull” ended, Mutt Williams was getting ready to pick up the Indy hat that blew off the coat rack but Indy was quick to take the hat from him. Remember that? So if Indy 5 were to be the final movie that Harrison will appear in, Mutt Williams maybe taking over as the new hero.

My question is will the next movie continue the story about aliens and UFO’s? I hope not. They should stay away from the sci-fi in the next one ’cause I’ll admit that Indiana Jones and sci-fi don’t mix.

They should focus on history and archeology stuff like Indy is known for. If they’re gonna bring Shia back hopefully would be just for a small role ’cause I didn’t like the Mutt Williams character at all.

The next Indy movie will probably be full of action scenes and CGI, of course but I want them to focus on story, though. What made the original trilogy great (Raiders, Temple of Doom, The Last Crusade) was that those three films focused on story than the action scenes. “Crystal Skull” had more action scenes than story. They need to make the next film more like “Raiders” if they want people to take it seriously.

I’m a huge Indiana Jones fan and I just hope they don’t mess the next movie up. Now that George Lucas is no longer in charge, lets see if they can pull it off without him.

Disney is never replacing Harrison Ford as Indy… which is good news actually…

The producer of the Indy franchise Frank Marshall confirms that Harrison Ford is never getting replaced in future Indy films by Disney. Frank says they aren’t doing the James Bond thing where they replace Bond for every 3 or 4 films or so. They’re keeping Harrison as Indiana Jones. He is irreplaceable for sure.

Indy will probably be a continuing franchise but if Harrison one day passes away (not saying it’ll happen but we’re all gonna go at some point, right?) or no longer wants to do it, they’ll figure out a way to have a leading star and not name this character Indiana Jones. Like Harrison as Indy can pass the whip and the hat to someone else which is what Indy 5 is probably gonna be about.

This is a smart move ’cause Harrison is Indy and no one else.

When they make the next Indy film, I just hope they don’t make it a CGI fest and popcorn film like “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”. They should make the next Indy film kind of like “Raiders” ’cause “Raiders” was obviously the best Indy film, in my opinion. “Raiders” was a masterpiece and classic for sure. I am a huge Indiana Jones fan and I hope they make the next one really good ’cause I’ll admit that “Crystal Skull” was slightly disappointing. Lets hope they don’t bring the sci-fi back.
