Steven Spielberg is saying that a fifth Indiana Jones movie will depend on whether or not George Lucas wants the film to be made, according to an interview with series star Karen Allen from Movies.com.
Lucas and Spielberg created the iconic Harrison Ford character together and Lucas has provided the stories for each installment. While Spielberg is not going to direct a fifth film in the franchise without Lucas’s support, Ford and co-star Karen Allen are both interested in returning.
Allen said, “[I] just talked with Steven Spielberg recently – we e-mailed back and forth, and I said, ‘What should I say? I’m doing this publicity, what should I say if people ask me [if I’m returning for another Indiana Jones film]?’ And he said, ‘It’s in George’s [Lucas] hands! I’m game, Harrison’s game, and now it’s up to George to write the script or to get the script organized, and the story’.”
Also, Allen confirmed that Spielberg and Lucas want to do the movie “if they can come up with a story that everybody is happy with and that everybody likes.” Here’s hoping the story they come up with does not involve CGI prairie dogs, nuked refrigerators or crystal skulls.
