Back when Disney paid $3 billion to purchase Lucasfilm, most focused on what they could and would do with the 'Star Wars' franchise. But, let's not forget about that other big Lucasfilm franchise: Indiana Jones. If Disney's dropping stacks on stacks for Lucasfilm, you better believe they're going to want their money's worth, and that includes a new series of Indiana Jones movies. Case in point: Disney has reportedly ready to focus on a reboot of the popular character and want 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Chris Pratt to take over the whip from Harrison Ford.
Indiana Jones fans are a tough crowd to please. Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford put the perfect cap on a trilogy with ‘The Last Crusade.’ Fans ask for more. So the team reunites for ‘Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,’ and nobody likes it. We want more. Can we expect a fifth ‘Indiana Jones,’ as is often rumored? Producer Frank Marshall has an update.
It appears that Steven Spielberg has new installments of two long-running franchises in the pipeline, because you never miss a good thing until it’s gone. According to the director himself, wheels are turning on both an ‘Indiana Jones V’ and ‘Jurassic Park IV.’
