Despite saying publicly in May that he felt he had “dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished” with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Shia LaBeouf will still be involved in Indy 5.
Last June LaBeouf said Spielberg had “cracked the story”, which was followed by an update from Harrison Ford in September who said the film is in the “process of taking form” and “Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and myself are agreed on what the fifth adventure will concern”.
Now the latest update from LaBeouf suggests we are in for a crazy time.
From ShowBiz Spy:
“They’re script writing right now,” says Shia. “I got called into Steven’s office and he pitched a little bit to me and it sounds crazy, it sounds really cool.”
Earlier this year Shia said Transformers 3 was going to be the “craziest action movie ever made”, so i’m not sure where Indian Jones 5 will rank on his crazy-o-meter, but Spielberg and Lucas must have come up with something special if the guy who has worked on Michael Bay’s biggest movies thinks it’s crazy.
Spielberg is currently filming his World War I epic War Horse which will be released August 2011, so the fifth Indiana Jones movie may be his next project.
