Steven Spielberg: "Some day there may be another Indiana Jones. I can't say when, but I said that fifteen years ago and it took fifteen years to make Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. But George [Lucas] and I have had a couple of conversations about what if we made another Indy film. But we're not in any position now to say that we're definitely doing that."

David Koepp: "I thought [Crystal Skull] was a pretty good way to go out, but you never know. Somebody has a great idea, it's always worth doing... I think [Lucas is] puttering away, seeing what he can come up with... That is safely locked away in the man-sized vault kept in George's head."

Shia LaBeouf: "Steven just said that he cracked a story on it before I left and I think they're gearing that up."

Frank Marshall: "It's really about the script. Once we see that, we'll see. We're not going to wait another 20 years. We'd all love to make another one. I'm anxious to hear the idea! We had a great time making the last one and, as Harrison said, we need to make this one soon. We're not getting any younger. Until there's a script, nothing's definite. I haven't heard the idea."

Frank Marshall: "The story for Indy5 is progressing. It is still in the research phase."

June 20, 2009
Shia LaBeouf: "Last I heard they're making progress in terms of the story. I know Harrison is fired up to get back in there as soon as possible and George and Steven want to make another one. They're making progress but nothing is definite about it."

Steven Spielberg [translated]: "The scenario is, of course, has not yet been written. And the idea of this is, you're absolutely right. We have long been talking about the fifth part. Think how it could be. And why not? Harrison in fine form and, as before, he has many tricks. Personally, I think that another picture about the adventures of Indiana Jones is quite possible. And believe me, if we decide to do it, it will not wait another 20 years!"

Steve Sansweet: "All I know is what I've seen on the Internet. I personally would be surprised to see a fifth Indy movie because of all the well known stories about how long it took to get a fourth Indy movie done and everybody in agreement. Who knows... There's still more to fill in his story, but it's not the same depth of fandom interest as it is in Star Wars."

September 7, 2009
Karen Allen: "The official announcement that I heard through a friend was that they've announced that another Indiana Jones film will come out the summer of 2012."

September 14, 2009
Harrison Ford: "The story for the new Indiana Jones is in the process of taking form. Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and myself are agreed on what the fifth adventure will concern, and George is actively at work. If the script is good, I'll be very happy to put the costume on again."

September 21, 2009
Harrison Ford: "Oh, we don't know. We're waiting for a script."

October 17, 2009
George Lucas: "Steven and I are talking about it, and Harrison, and hopefully we'll figure it out. It's hard to figure out what the movie should be about. We all have ideas and hopefully we'll come to a conclusion on it at some point."

December 3, 2009
George Lucas: "The next Indy film? Yes, we're working on it. It's in development. That's all I can say right now."
