script finished in about a month?!
February 11, 2005
During an interview with
Kathleen Kennedy, producer of War of the Worlds and many more
Spielberg films, she told Freeze Dried Movies that writer Jeff Nathanson is
still working on the new Indiana Jones 4 script, which could be
finished next month!
How about [the status on]
Indiana Jones 4?
Kennedy: "We’re going to see a script in about a month."
Who’s the screenwriter?
Kennedy: "Jeff Nathanson"
Will Sean Connery be back?
Kennedy: "Until I read the script I won’t really know."
And as you can read, it's
still unclear if Sean Connery will be back to play Indy's father.

During a great interview

Spielberg had a brief comment on Indiana Jones 4 for Dark
Horizons. He hopes to make Indy 4 in a year and a half from now,

Munich Olympics film for this summer?
February 16, 2005
The chance that Indiana
4 will get into production this year is getting very slim. The Hollywood Reporter wrote today that Spielberg
will start shooting his film about the 1972 Munich Olympics this summer
for a planned release on December 23.
The untitled project
had been set to go before the cameras last year. Preproduction had
begun in Europe and casting was under way when Spielberg decided to
have Angels in America playwright Tony Kushner do a rewrite on
the project, on which writers Eric Roth and Charles Randolph also had
With the project
postponed, Spielberg moved quickly to begin filming his adaptation of
H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds which Paramount will

Koepp to blame for Indy 4 delays?
February 25, 2005
An article by MTV.com gives the impression that screenplay
writer David Koepp is to blame for the long delay of Indiana Jones 4.
Ever since Last
Crusade thrilled us in 1989, we've been wondering which bad guy
would try to take down Indiana Jones next. Now, we may finally have the
name of our villain: veteran screenwriter David Koepp. "This wouldn't have happened so fast if it had not been
for David Koepp," said Steven Spielberg about War of the
Worlds, the Koepp-penned script whose production took Spielberg's
attention away from a fourth Indiana Jones adventure. "We go through the whole development process all the
time, making movies, and sometimes you're really intent to make a
picture, like I was with Indy 4. [But] my producer didn't like
the script as much as I did. My intention was to make Indy 4 a
year and a half ago, but it didn't work out. Now I'm hoping to make it
a year and a half from now."
Of course David Koepp
can't be blamed for the delays of Indy 4. The fact is that
George Lucas wasn't as happy with Darabont's Indy 4 script as
Spielberg was. So the script needed some extra time in the hands of a
different writer, named Jeff Nathanson.
David Koepp just had the luck to have the War of the Worlds
script finished at the right moment.

Indy 4 script
ready next month
In a lengthy article about digital 3D cinema, George Lucas
mentioned that Indiana Jones 4 won't be in 3D and that he
expects to see the latest draft of the Indy 4 script in a month.
Lucas admitted that he
abandoned plans to shoot Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the
Sith in 3-D. "It was too early in the process
to meet all our dates," he said. And when asked if the fourth
"Indiana Jones" film, long in development, will be made in 3-D, he said
it would be hard enough to persuade Steven Spielberg to shoot on
digital video. He said the latest version of the script is due back to
him in a month or so.

Indy 4 production status update
Friday, April 22,
Star Wars & The
Young Indiana Jones producer Rick McCallum had his
Spectacular presentation today at Celebration III. McCallum
also gave some information on the current status of Indiana Jones 4:
- Lucas got a script for
Indiana Jones 4 last week.
- Spielberg plans to
make Indy 4 after his next film.
- Any recasting of
Harrison Ford due to any more delays is definitely out of the question.
About Rick McCallum
saying that Spielberg plans to make Indy 4 the film he does
after his next one, War of the Worlds is his current film! The
next film on Spielberg's schedule is the 1972 Olympics/Mossad Film
which should start production later this year. So according to
McCallum, we may expect to see Spielberg filming Indy 4 once
the Olympics project is in the can. Indy 4 could be for next

Lucas says Indy
4 is definitely in the works
StarWars.com has posted an official summary of
George Lucas' first convention appearance since 1987 at Celebration
III yesterday. The summary confirms what Rick McCallum said about Indy
4 two days ago! Here's an except of Lucas' appearance:
Regarding the grown up
Indiana Jones, people wanted to know when the man in the hat was coming
back. "As a matter of fact, I just received the
new script two days ago. I have yet to read it," he said. "I'd like to be able to read it this weekend. I'll be
talking to Steven on Monday, and then we'll figure out what we're going
to do. So, it's definitely in the works."
It's good to hear George
Lucas talking about Indiana Jones 4. And especially if he says
that he and Spielberg will have an Indy 4 meeting tomorrow.
Let's all cross our fingers and hope that they both like this latest
script draft and agree to start production on Indy 4 within a
year! So stay tuned as we're keeping an eye on this!

Indy 4 story idea!
Hollywood.com recently had a chat with George
Lucas about Star Wars' future but also about the upcoming Indiana
4! Here follows the interesting Indy 4 part of the
interview with Lucas:

was going to send it to me when I got back, which was yesterday. It
isn't on my desk today and he's coming up tomorrow to see Star Wars,

You guys do well when you
collaborate in Hawaii. Things tend to work out there.
"Yeah. We're frantically trying to finish War
of the Worlds at the same time. We'll see. I look forward to

Is there anything we can reveal
You had an idea of what was
planned before they wrote the script?
I came up with this idea doing Young Indy, which has got to be about
seven or eight years ago, and we've been through a number of
scripts--six or eight scripts. Six scripts, two rewrites. So it's been
down the path. There were certain aspects of it that Steven and
Harrison [Ford] didn't like, and so we changed those, and then we laid
out a version and it didn't come out the way it was supposed to, and
then we did another version and it didn't come out, so we've just been
going through this development hell, which happens once in a while.
We'll see. When it comes out, it'll be different. Different, but the

But someone to create new movies
wasn't meant to be that way. But I guess that's a possibility. It's
really to wrap it up. Just desperately trying to put things together
that work. You need characters to make the film work. It's not just an
adventure story. There's actually got to be human relationships in it."
Are you still planning on
bringing back some of the other characters from the previous films?
Can you say who?
Mrs. Spielberg, perhaps?
there are a lot of rumors out there. Some of them are true. True-ish."
This Young Indy idea
George Lucas mentions here above sounds intriguing to say the least!
And this interview is probably taken sometime last week as George Lucas
and Steven Spielberg already had this meeting earlier this week.

Lucas talks about how he works, his fear of failure and the sort of

again have some supernatural elements!
Lucas: "You know, I said three's fine. And then I came up with
an idea I thought was brilliant, so I told the other guys [Spielberg
and Ford], and they kind of flipped out. It's vaguely in the realm of
the supernatural. We have to accept the fact that Indiana Jones is an

announced Indy 4 in front of 1.300 fans
To mark the UK premiere
of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, London's Leicester
Square has been holding a day-long celebration. The 1.300 Star
Wars fans who were attendant got the shock of their lives when
George Lucas was introduced to them.
producer Rick McCallum entered the cinema first to wild applause, which
got increasingly intense, as first actor Ian McDiarmid (Chancellor
Palpatine), Hayden Christensen (Annakin Skywalker) and Lucas himself
were paraded in front of the 1,300 fans.
"The reason we are all here. The Jedi master himself,"
"Are you guys crazy or what," yelled Lucas,
struggling to make himself heard over the noise of the crowd.
Lucas described London
as the "home of Star Wars".
To chants of "three more films" he said: "This is the tragedy of Darth Vader. It starts when he
is 9 years old and ends when he is dead. There is no more story."
A chorus of boos rang
out around the cinema but Lucas quickly won the fans back over, saying:
"I'm working on the next Indiana Jones."
Well, here you have it.

Indiana Jones 4 script!
Isn't it about time?
According to Variety, Lucas has finally approved Jeff Nathason
version of the Indiana Jones 4 script.
Nathanson's draft for Indiana
4 has apparently met with the approval of George Lucas and
Steven Spielberg. But before Paramount can move forward,
Harrison Ford still has to sign off on the script, and he hasn't yet
The trade adds that
with Star Wars off his plate, Lucas recently summoned Nathanson
to his Bay Area headquarters, where they went over the draft. The
screenwriter also got notes from Spielberg, who brought him into the
mix after working with him on Catch Me if You Can and Terminal.
Now Harrison Ford has to
approve the script and once that is done, we could be finally getting
close to Indy 4 than ever before. Steven Spielberg is currently
working on post production of War of the Worlds and is schedule
to direct the Untitled Olympic Film due for December 2005.

spilled the working title of Indy 4?
Saturday, June 4,
received a message from someone who was present at a fundraiser held by
the Democrats 2 days ago. Hillary Clinton and Harrison Ford were
present at this fundraiser. And according to a certain Xorn, Harrison
Ford revealed Indy 4's working title to him and some other
students present. Apparently it's Indiana Jones and the Opal of the
Mer-Man Prince. Here follows the original message:

money for the DNC. I am a member of the young democrats at my
university and was lucky enough to be selected to attend. There were
tons of celebs there one of which was the great Harrison Ford. Being a

Lucas online at
Many of the original Star Wars trilogy actors appeared on
stage, including Harrison Ford with Chewbacca at his side. And Ford
later re-appeared for Indiana Jones with a good joke! Here's what the
report at AICN.com says about this:
Then Harrison is back
out again, this time for Indie Jones. He is funnier this time, and
points directly at Lucas and yells "and if he
wants to do a forth one, he'd better HURRY UP, because Sean Connery is
getting too old to play my father!" Fun moment, and you could
tell Lucas is laughing.

Flockhart has an eye on Indy
USA Today talked with Steven Spielberg and
Harrison Ford during the 33rd AFI Life Achievement Award
tribute to George Lucas. Spielberg said screenwriter Jeff Nathanson is
finishing a script for Indiana Jones 4 by the end of this summer
Spielberg said writer
Jeff Nathanson (Speed 2, Rush Hour 2 and 3) is readying a script for Indiana
4 by summer's end. Asked whether Flockhart would play Indy's
new leading lady, Ford said, "She would of course
make her own decision."
Flockhart said she's up
for a 2006 adventure. "Oh, yes," she said.
"If I could kick his (butt), absolutely!"
It was previously
reported that both Lucas and Spielberg had signed off on the script and
that Ford had not read it yet. Lucas recently summoned Nathanson to his
headquarters, where they went over the draft. The writer also got notes
from Spielberg before continuing on to finish the script.
And if Calista Flockhart will indeed be Indy's new leading lady? You
never know but this was not a confirmation.

An Indy 4
progress report by Kathleen Kennedy
Now Playing Magazine had an interview with
Kathleen Kennedy about Indiana Jones 4. And what she says about
the fourth Indy project sounds very promising!
The screenplay is being finished at the moment, and when they're all
happy with the result, Indy 4 will be more than likely to be
the next thing they do.
a screenplay," says Kennedy, long-time producing
partner of Steven Spielberg. "I know this sounds
like something that we’ve been saying for 15 years, but I’m hoping that
we’re going to see something in a couple of months. Jeff Nathanson is
working on the script right now… I will say this: If it comes in and
we’re all happy with it, it will be more than likely the next thing we
that previous reports of Nathanson’s script being "approved" by Indy
producer George Lucas and director Spielberg were true, but that
doesn’t quite mean what it sounds like it does.
to approve something, it’s another thing to say it’s greenlit
and we’re shooting it. So we’re just in that sort of phase of finessing,"
before responding to a question about whether or not star
Harrison Ford is too old for the part these days. "No,
think so. Certainly we’re not writing the script as though he’s
20 years old. You know, Sean Connery spent a lot of time in the Bond
role and whatnot. I think it’s great that we can go make another
Indiana Jones movie and Indy can be a little older. I think playing
with that is a good thing."
So it’ll take place in
the ’50s then?
And who are the bad
guys going to be?
to tell you the story!" she laughs. "What
do you think, I’m nuts?! You’ll be here next year
and ask me if I’m working on the Indy movie. 'No, I got fired!'"
Steven Spielberg has
already begun filming his next project, a film about the aftermath of
the 1972 massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. Click here for more info on that film.
So it is expected that Spielberg will finish production on this film
near the end of this year. And according to what Kathleen Kennedy just
said, if all goes right we may see Indy 4 go into production
just after that. Placing Spielberg's Abe Lincoln bio-picture on hold.

Ford ready to
do his own stunts in Indy 4
July 26, 2005
Harrison Ford has said,
during an interview with UK's Saga Magazine, that he's determined to do his own
stunts for Indiana Jones 4. Here follows the interesting Indy
4 part of that interview:
now back in action in Vancouver, Canada, with British actor Paul
Bettany in a thriller, The Wrong Element. There have also been
reports that he will next year attempt a fourth film as action-man
Indiana Jones, at the age of 64. "It is now a
probability," he confirms.
"George Lucas, the producer, works with a writer for a
time and then the director Steven Spielberg and I work together. We
have all agreed on a concept."
vanity got the better of him? Is he really expecting to throw himself
into action scenes? It seems so. "I have picked
up plenty of bumps, bruises and cuts over the years," he says. "I have injured a shoulder and torn a hamstring – that
sort of thing. But I have got so used to taking a battering, on screen
as in life, that I feel anything is possible."

Indiana Jones film in the making?
News received an interesting rumor today. First, here
follows the rumor/message they received:
work BLEEP at an international software company, and learned some news
that might be of interest to you. At a recent all-hands meeting, we
discussed what we're working on in the coming year. During the meeting,
we learned that we will develop for LucasArts a series of new
Young Indiana Jones learning games set from 1916-1919 that will be
released to coincide with a 2007 Young Indiana Jones movie.
that the information about the movie came straight from
George Lucas to one of our executives.
first I'd heard of this movie, so I thought I'd share.
This message/rumor does
not claim that there is a Young Indiana Jones film in the works. And I
doubt that there are such plans.
But it is likely that (if this rumor turns out to be correct!) this
series of new Young Indy learning games is meant to coincide with the
release of the full Adventures of Young Indiana Jones tv-series
on DVD, and becoming part of the pre-Indiana Jones 4 promo
I hope to find some
proof of this as soon as possible. So stay tuned!

4 status update: very unreliable!
August 3, 2005
According to some other
film news sites, the latest Indy 4 status update is the
Steven Spielberg has
agreed in principal to Nathanson's Indy 4 script and is leaving
his schedule open for Indy 4 after Munich is released.
George Lucas and Jeff Nathanson are currently tweaking the Indy 4
screenplay. The tweaked draft for Indy 4 should be finished by
the fall to be submitted for green light. Harrison Ford has agreed on
the script as well.
According to the website
that originally published this update, their source is very reliable
for it is someone who is a very close friend of Steven Spielberg, and
who works very close with him.
Well, when a source claims to be a very close friend of Spielberg you
may be certain that everything this source says is totally unreliable,
That Spielberg and Ford
were pleased with Jeff Nathanson's Indiana Jones 4 script is
something we already know from previous news reports. We also know that
George Lucas and Nathanson are currently still tweaking the screenplay.
And that Spielberg would be trying to leave his schedule open for Indy
4 after his current film Munich is released comes as no
Just read last month's Indy 4 progress report by Kathleen
Kennedy if you need more.
This same website also
announced that a source within Paramount Pictures told them
that the current release date for Indiana Jones 4 is February
2nd, 2007. Even this bit of news is unreliable. And if it is the date Paramount
is aiming for, then you may be certain that it will change.
Only believe the
information that comes directly from George Lucas, Steven Spielberg,
Harrison Ford, Lucasfilm or some other people who are certain to
be part of the Indiana Jones 4 production team, such as
Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall.
talks about women in Indy 4
News has received a nice interview excerpt coming from People
Magazine. People recently talked to Kate Capshaw about her
career, family, her husband Steven Spielberg and the fourth Indiana
Jones film. Let me first show you the except AICN
Is Steven doing another Indiana Jones?
"Yes, sometime next year. I believe Willie
Scott's going to be making an appearance too."
What will that entail?
"I can't say. Not because Steven's sworn me to
secrecy, but because I really don't know yet. All I know is Willie
might be coming back, Karen Allen, and possibly Calista [Flockhart]. I
think Harrison's going to be outweighed by the women in the next one."
The news that Lucas,
Spielberg and Ford are working on a fourth Indiana Jones film has been
around for over 10 years now. But the signs this year have so far been
very optimistic. They have a script that is as good as finished and
liked by everybody involved. And there's evidence that both production
companies, Lucasfilm Ltd. & Paramount Pictures, are
also working on the highly anticipated film. Everything points to Indiana
4 going into production next year.
The only other project on Spielberg's slate right now is his Lincoln
biopic with Liam Neeson, which is also certainly going to happen! The
big question now is if Spielberg and company will decide to make
Abraham Lincoln first or give priority to Indiana Jones, as that's one
thing nobody knows for certain yet.
Here follows what Quint
from AICN has to say about the Indiana Jones 4
... I know most are
skeptical of this project happening, but we know for sure that
Spielberg, Lucas and Ford are happy with the new screenplay from Jeff
Nathanson and the word is Spielberg is penciling Indy 4 in next
year, after he finishes his Lincoln picture with Liam Neeson. To add on
to that, I've gotten reports from people inside of Paramount who claim
to have seen some paperwork and other items with the INDY 4
title marked clearly on them, which would seem to indicate that the
film is gathering steam inside Paramount as well. Unless
something big shows its face to trip up the production, I'd say we're
going to be seeing our favorite leather jacket, whip and fedora again...
Head over to Ain't
News to read the full report by Quint.
Thanks to Brett Hopkins
and Richard Budd for showing me the AICN report.
casting call is a hoax!
Reports recently appeared
that all parties involved in the fourth Indiana Jones film were happy
with the final script and that final negotiations are currently
underway. To back up that claim casting call's have gone out to
multiple agencies. Here you can view one of these so called Indiana
4 casting calls.

I contacted Lucasfilm
about this Indy 4 casting call and they confirmed my

response: The rumor that there are casting
sessions underway for Indiana Jones 4 is a hoax. There are no
such sessions, and no production has started on the movie.
So calling the above
mentioned phone number will certainly not get you into the fourth
Indiana Jones film. Official Casting calls for Indiana Jones 4
will certainly not appear on public websites. I wouldn't even count on
an official casting call coming from Lucasfilm. But you never

tweaking Nathanson's Indy 4 script
FOXNews.com reported that George Lucas went to New
York yesterday only to attend the blockbuster premiere of today's

Ford goes into a nursing home.
