Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Inevitable Sequel
It was inevitable. Despite massive fan disappointment with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Steven Spielberg has apparently "cracked" the plot for a fifth movie and is "gearing up" to make it a reality.
At a press soirÃ©e for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" in London, Shia (aka Jones, Jr.) LaBeouf let it slip that Spielberg is hard at work on yet another Indy sequel, on top of an already heavily congested shooting lineup.
Does this mean that the rumors of Harrison Ford passing the Indy torch (not to mention the fedora and whip) to LaBeouf are true? I certainly hope not. I like LaBeouf more than most, but an "Indiana Jones" film without Indiana Jones is unthinkable.
