Harrison Ford will go anywhere with Indiana Jones except space
Posted by:Zack Bruce
There’s always a future for INDIANA JONES as long as Harrison Ford is around. As sad as it may seem, I bet that even after Ford someone will step in and take on some form of the role.
During a Q&A between Ford and Steven Spielberg for the 30th anniversary of RAIDER’S OF THE LOST ARK, the inevitable query about the future of Indy was brought up by an enthusiastic fan. Spielberg joked that one fan yelling in the audience may have been the only one they didn’t alienate by making the 4th film, KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL.
Ford has no issues coming back to the role but only if the script is reasonable, “Maybe a fifth, but I ain’t going to Mars. Next time we get a script for Indiana Jones, I’d be delighted to play the character. Each time we meet him, we wanted to advance the audience’s understanding of the character, not just by putting him in adventures, but by learning something about him…that’s what led to the meeting of his father [in The Last Crusade], played by Sean Connery, and his son [in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull], played by Shia, and bringing Marion back.”
There was no definite answer on a fifth film but I’m sure Spielberg has something up his sleeve.
