Ford has made it very, VERY clear that he intends to do another one. I'm in the camp that really REALLY wants to see him do another one. I pray it's a great script this time.

Interesting. I'm surprised I haven't read about this from more mainstream entertainment sites, but I suppose it's inevitable the studio would have to go that route. Harrison will eventually be (or, arguably, already is) too old to play the role effectively, and if they want to keep the lucrative franchise living, the recast would be the way to go. As for Cooper as a possible new Indy, I can see it. He has the rugged good looks (especially with the beard), can clean up well in a tux, and can handle the action scenes, from what I've seen of him.

Once Ford is ready to step down, I vote for Timothy Olyphant or GTFO.

Though we all love Ford as Indy, I think realistically the answer to that question is "yes." With all the running and jumping required for the role, Ford can't really give the role the same vim & vigour he did 20 years ago. It could be argued he was approaching the "too old" zone in CS, and if he wasn't the Indy we knew back in the '80s in that film, how would he come off in the next film, which won't likely see the light of day for another 5+ years, if at all? We certainly don't want to see Ford himself be the critical whipping board of any next film (as opposed to lame storyline, CG, etc.).

neutronbomb
04-17-2014, 04:16 PM
Yes. Too old. I couldn't buy him in CS so a more doddering what..about a decade older ford...would be like watching 'grumpy old men' and the adventure of the morning throne. I could see Bradley cooper doing some darker, edgier pre-TOD origination type film. Plus I think he could nail the persona of the character.

The only way Ford could possibly pull off another would be if it goes forward, not backward, in time period from CS

Timothy Oliphant would be a good choice. He was fabulous in Deadwood.
Karl Urban would be pretty cool too.

JeffDJ
04-22-2014, 05:24 PM
Oliphant would be good. He's got the right look, IMO, and a wide-brimmed hat suits him well, as seen a few posts above. Not sure about Urban though. I don't think he has "the right look" and has more gruff persona. Plus, he's now quite well known as McCoy in the Trek franchise, and for many it would be hard to distance him from that if he suddenly turned up as Indy as well.

djd
04-22-2014, 06:01 PM
Urban isn't always gruff (I believe that's acting!) and look wise he's not dissimilar to Oliphant. I remember Urban from his early days on Hercules and Xena!

I think we will read a lot of BS from the press about the next Indy movie.
Frank Marshall said "Due to the ridiculous rumors that keep popping up, like agents pipe dreams, I will stop commenting on our projects until I have real news."
So, anything of the latest "news" are true...just elucubrations from "vivid imagination" minds.

Personally, I don't see Disnay to reboot Indy. That would kill the character.
Because Indy is not Batman, Superman or Spiderman
Indy lives in the "real" world. And truly world-historical events are part of his history. (WW1, WW2, Nazis, commies, etc.)
The guy even have a birth date.

I've been PRAYING for years to see the next movie set in the mid 20's.
Indy just got his PhD...gets a lousy job as a university substitute professor....have this mentor/tutor (Abner Ravenwood) who gets him the very first mission for a museum, to rescue/obtain some rare antiquity...
I even have this unknown, talented young actor to play the role:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3452021/

Who lately got the chance of his life. Hired for a small part on a big movie, playing as the young "William"...character played by HARRISON FORD as adult !!!!!!!

I agree that everything is rumors and speculation right now. The fact that it is being spoken about though is a good thing because it shows that their is still interest.

In regards to Anthony Ingruber, I have been familiar with him for awhile and I'm not so certain that a Harrison Ford lookalike or impersonator would be wise. Only Harrison Ford can be Harrison Ford. It would be difficult to follow a movie without constantly comparing how well he portrays HF instead of Indiana Jones. If a reboot is in the works then someone else has to make that character their own. Daniel Craig looks nothing like Sean Connery, sounds nothing like him and acts nothing like him yet both are very successful Bond actors. I know that HF will always be IJ but the character has so much potential that someone could take him in another direction.

I totally love the idea of the 1920's and the 40's would work as well.

Just my thoughts....

Weston
06-05-2014, 07:05 AM
Well said Ram Man. However...

I think there is a case to be made for just letting the original trilogy stand (that's right, trilogy; the fourth movie was a non-canonical reunion show fit for a T. V. special and best forgotten!). They rode off into the sunset after finding the Holy Grail, and let that be the end of it! Sometimes, it's best to let things end on a high note, with dignity and fond remembrance, lest monkeys and greasers be swinging on vines across the screen and offend your very soul!

I'm also a huge fan of Clint Eastwood's "Spaghetti Westerns" with Sergio Leone. That said, I'm glad we never had to see Blondie, Angel Eyes, and Tuco played by, well, anyone other than Eastwood, Van Cleef, or Wallach. To me, the Indy movies are the same in that regard. Let the truly great not be diminished by inferior sequels.

Hmmm...I may have had one glass of wine too many tonight, but, you know what? The auto correct on my tablet has decided that "very soul" ought to be "ovary oil". That's right; these new remakes offend my ovary oil! Now that's got to be bad!

Ram Man
06-05-2014, 03:35 PM
Good analogy of CS, a reunion....to be forgotten.

I have struggled with the thought of leaving well enough alone also. Having said that, the original trilogy (I use trilogy in the same context) will always stand alone no matter what. That's why the new Star Wars trilogy doesn't bother me so much anymore because in my mind they do not even compare to the originals so I can easily forget that they exist. I do think that a younger Indy set in the 20's is a fantastic idea though, even if they made a trilogy just in the 20's. Lets face it, the young Indy series wasn't fantastic but it didn't diminish the original movies in any way partly because it was a different time period. As Indiego mentioned so much was happening at the turn of the century and the 20's and 30's were very exciting times. We just have to keep in mind that Harrison Ford gave us something that few if any can duplicate and accept that anyone new would have to appeal to the character of Indiana Jones rather than the personality of Harrison Ford. I guess in a similar way that Sean Patrick Flannery did, but better. I am willing to explore the possibilities.

I hope I didn't offend your ovaries...HaHa

I agree with that. I just want to see it done right, or not at all.

JeffDJ
06-05-2014, 10:46 PM
Yeah, if done right with the BEST actor for the role, it could definitely work. (These rumours of Robert Pattinson are making me cringe).

But there's always the TV medium for Indy to return to. I really like the idea of the animated series that was bandied about a while back, such as the one that Patrick Shoenmaker did artwork for (http://www.firstshowing.net/2012/gorgeous-artwork-imagines-indiana-jones-as-an-animated-series/). I would definitely watch that show if it existed!

If River hadn't died I suspect he would have been Indy by now.

We forget there were 5 actors who have already played Indy. Sean Patrick Flanery, Cory Carrier, George Hall, River Phoenix and of course Ford.

My candidates would include:

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is 43 so might be a bit old but he would make a dashing Indy.

Charlie Hunnam 34 is a bit chunky but might make an interesting choice.

Can't think of any off the top of my head.

Robert Pattinson would lose all the existing fans. If they want to rely on the Twilight fangurls god help them.

So I got to thinking, we have a few nominees for possible actors that could play Indy. Who do you guys think would be a good Marion? I mean Indy has to have a feisty girl who can keep him on his toes doesn't he?

JeffDJ
07-28-2014, 05:48 PM
Would this alleged reboot need Marion, specifically? Unless it's in a pre-breakup-with-Marion, pre-falling-out-with-Abner time period, they could still be together (it's been a while since I've looked at the Indy chronology). If they cast young enough (but not too damn young!!!), they could set it late 1920s, maybe.

Say, what about Chris Pratt for Indy? He seems to be the young action guy du jour. I haven't seen him in anything yet, but he looks like he could have a good Indy vibe based on what I've seen of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Indiego Jones
07-28-2014, 06:17 PM
I've been thinking about a trilogy.
So, no need to have Marion in the first two installments.
In fact, I think we can see "a lot of Marys" before he meets the love of his life...

The 2nd movie MUST present Belloq. Maybe only in the opening sequence (or right at the end, as a secondary "last minute added" villain), not as the main villain of the whole movie.

The 3rd movie should have Abner, Marion and, at the end, as ussual, Indy "loses" the McGuffin...but the BIG lost for him is the "falling out" with his mentor, and the distancing from Marion...(fade into black, main credits, Raiders march) ;D

I leave the 1st movie to Disney's writers to figure out something... ;)

Ram Man
07-29-2014, 04:40 AM
I like your thinking on this Diego. There are so many interesting characters that would make great back stories for a new trilogy as you put it. How did Indy meet Wu Han? How about Sallah?
The whole Nurachi Adventure has always intrigued me as well. How did Indy spare Sonny's life? What's his connection with Lao Che? The Chinese gangster thing would be cool.
As far as a female lead I don't have any suggestions but I think an exotic beauty, you know, someone a little mysterious would be cool. Maybe someone a little smarter than Indy but not as courageous.
What about Forrestal "a competitor, who was good. He was very very good."
As far as Belloq goes, what if he was a 'friend' until his betrayal. "Once AGAIN Dr. Jones what was briefly yours...."

outpost31
07-29-2014, 03:26 PM
Some cool ideas from you guys here. I was wondering who you thought would be a good female lead, hadn't really thought about a shift in chronology, was just playing with the idea of different actors playing the characters we already know and love re: Marion being the first female lead we see in the movies. Come to that I'd love to hear what suggestions you have for say Sallah or Marcus Brody, I mean lets say (And i know this is a bit blasphemous) they were making Raiders again and we were allowed to cast anyone we wanted for each role who would be your choice.

Indiego Jones
07-29-2014, 06:22 PM
It would be great to see the beginning of the most important friendships. Sallah, Wu Han, Marcus, Prof Jones (father).
But again, just cameos. Not for the entire movie.
I think new characters (and sidekicks) should be presented, in order to not repeat what we already saw.

I can see Forrestal as a new/old character, which I find very interesting to expand.

outpost31
07-30-2014, 02:57 PM
On the Forrestal thing I think that would be a great one to see played out. I also think seeing some of Indys war career would be cool , we've been told he worked in OSS but what exactly was he up to? possibly investigating Himmler and the whole nazi occult thing? trying to prevent their stealing other historical artefacts ? What exactly did he win all those medals for ?

Tibor
07-30-2014, 03:25 PM
You know, I'm not so interested in the war years... I guess I've seen enough war movies and wars that there aren't too many things about the period that still interest me.

One of the things that I like about Indy movies is that you see the civilian world if the 30s reproduced on screen... It's one of the things I like about most Bond movies, seeing all the locations. I'd love to see a Forrestal story set in about 1934. :)

outpost31
07-30-2014, 04:46 PM

Indiego Jones
07-30-2014, 05:44 PM
A new actor must play the role. A younger one.
IMO, the prior they place the history of the mid 30's, the better.
So less "shocking" would be the impact to see another face playing Indy's character.
Setting the prequel trilogy between 1924 and 1926 (the 3rd installment must be set on 1926...you all know why)

HENRY JONES JR.
07-30-2014, 07:44 PM
I'm open to a reboot. Then again, I'm open to Harrison playing Indy one last time. His action scenes would have to be toned down, and he'd have to use his intelect in clever ways to make it interesting, and someone else in the film could provide fights and action. Indy can shoot, drive, fly, use a whip, so he still can do stuff. Plus, they can always digitally put his face on a stunt doubles body, like they did in Revenge of the Sith with Christopher Lee in his lightsaber duels (physically, there is no way he could perform that way, but you can't tell with the digital effects of his face on the double).

I'd also be happy with a reboot. Somehow, I was fine with the STAR TREK reboot with new actors, different James Bonds, and young Obi Wan Kenobi in the prequels, so I'm sure if done right, I'd have no problem with it. Could be a really great thing if they did a new series of films. Disney writers and imagineers are pretty clever, and I'm certain, if well thought out, it would be great!

Question. Would you want SPIELBERG to direct it? Yes. No. Maybe.

Indiego Jones
07-30-2014, 08:31 PM
For me, no need for Spielberg. Are many young talented directors around.

I think they can do many things without a reboot.
Rebooting the story would mean reinventing the character. Changing particular aspects of his personality/fictional life, by adding new ones.
Pretending the previous movies didn't existed.

It's not something I like.

Without Lucas' involvement, not sure Spielberg would return anyway. Spielberg's name is a huge draw, but then again, it could do well without him at this point. He brings great ideas, but, after Crystal Skull, perhaps all the ideas have been used by now. (Mutt, swinging on vines........really? Really?)

KidHuevos
07-31-2014, 02:07 AM
Thinking about this topic, I really only have a few wishes:

One, I want Indy to be the hard-edged hero we all saw in Raiders; I don't want the kinder, gentler Indy of Last Crusade and Crystal Skull.

Two, I really want Ben Burtt to be involved with the sound design. I adore his work almost to an obsession; a new Indy movie wouldn't be the same without Burtt's wonderful sound effects. (Come on, we all get a rush when we hear those whipcracks, the sounds of temples disintegrating and those fabulous face punches.)

Exhibit A:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttp6zOMimAM

If you don't feel like cracking somebody in the face after watching that, you are sick and I pity you. ;)

On a side note, regarding the rumored casting of Robert Pattinson: I may not see him as Indy, but if he gets cast I'll watch it if the story is good. Who knows? Maybe he's sick to death of all this vampire crap and is desperate to do something manly.

I fondly recall the late 80's when my male peers and I all uniformly hated Patrick Swayze when Dirty Dancing came out. We all called him names and assumed the worst about his racial heritage and sexual preferences...


...until Roadhouse came out. From that day on, my peers and I came to realize two things:

One, pain didn't hurt.

Two, we were all worthless scumsuckers not worthy to lick Mr. Swayze's razor-bladed cowboy boots. We revered him as the god he was for that cinematic monument and believed that it canceled out any previous transgressions from greatness. If necessary, we would offer ourselves as sacrifices for him to rip our throats out with his legendary three-fingered eagle talon strike if it would get us into Roadhouse Heaven.

So, my point is: Let's give him a chance if the movie is good. ;)

That's a good point about the distinction of the term "reboot". I think what we all would prefer is a prequel trilogy, which would obviously require a new actor to play the younger Indy, but wouldnt erase the the history we all love.

The first movie could even use Ford in a bookend fashion if he's too old by then, though perhaps something a little more elaborate than what we saw in the Young Indy episode "The Mystery of the Blues".

The most iconic piece in the movie next to his hat and he barely used it. When you mention Indiana Jones, hat and whip come to mind. In my opinion the last movie was a 'reboot'.

Actually, he did need it a few times in CS. #1 - disarming the guard at Area 51. #2 - Attaching to the light to try and get into Spalko's vehicle. #3 - trying to save Mac from being sucked into "the space between spaces" vehicle (head shake of shame)

Thanks for posting that, HJJ, I've never seen that lost scene before! Now I know why in the finished film, when Jerjerrod walks back towards the shuttle at the end of the the scene it sort of changes to slow-motion. I guess that was a transition side-effect to deleting the following Vader scene (which uses what almost looks like unused shots of Vader in his pod-chamber from Empire), because in this original version his movement is smooth right up to the cut. This is a cut I agree with, though it is cool seeing the new footage.

The photo really does make you think. I'm open minded enough to consider him as Indy.

However, Disney may make an announcement soon (possibly a release date). Harrison mentioned when he broke his leg that he may have some announcement about something soon, but we have never heard what it was. I'm guessing Disney hasn't decided what to do, as it has been rumored that in his contract for doing STAR WARS that he will be given a scipt for him to play Indy again, which is what he most wants to do. Disney does want new films, which is the reason they bought the franchise, but which direction will they go. They may still not know.

They made great stories, so why the hell can't they just have THEM come up with these story ideas, then have a pro screenwriter go over it for the big screen? WHY? It's so simple.
You have a very good point.
I agree with you.

IMO the chances to see the movie made are bigger now, with G.Lucas out of the picture.
Too much HUGE egos in the mix before. George always wanted to have the last word.
Don't take me wrong, I know he created the whole saga. And became a BIG success. And that's a problem too.
Everyone (screen writers, story writers, etc) wants to have their name in the credits. And ONLY their names.

If Disney focus in having a new fresh story, respecting the previous films but adding some new things, we may have a terrific film!
New young writers! Fresh ideas! We want to be surprised!

HF IS IN INDY 5, PASSES TORCH FOR FUTURE FILMS

Personally, I'd prefer to not have him pass the torch per se and have a modern Indy in modern times take over or something like that, but rather (if they must) have Ford do one more picture, Give him a final send off, or happy ending, and then start over again (like when Daniel Craig took over as James Bond, or how the newest Star Trek movies are revamped by starting over) with someone playing Indy in the 1930's and starting fresh. I don't think an INDY dressed in 1930's hat and clothes would be right for modern times.

What do you think?

If I understand the article, I got the impression that Ford will do one last film, then the next film will feature a wholly new actor, just like the Bond films, but set in the 1930's. So, when they say "passing the torch", they are not referring to introducing another LeBeaufster to ride shotgun with Ford in his last outing. :)

Good. I can't picture a modern Indy in 2014 driving around in a Toyota Prius or something. It's got to be the 1930's.

First big movie perfomance for Anthony Ingruber (my nÂș1 candidate to play Indy in 25 year old).
I'd like to see this film.-

^ My guess would be the likeness, particularly around the eyes. I've never heard of the guy before, but put him in the Indy gear, with a little stubble on his face, I think he'd look the part, though admittedly "looking the part" is only part of the equation.

I can see what you're talking about. I wonder though if on a reboot we shouldn't go the other direction. Someone who doesn't necessarily look like HF. Like when they went with Daniel Craig for 007.

That was my thought as well. I think I posted earlier in this thread that a look a like would ruin it for me because there is only one Harrison Ford. There are however many others with the sort of charisma that could pull off the 'character'. I personally don't want to watch a movie of a guy pretending to be Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. I would rather see someone make the character his own the way Daniel Craig did with Bond. David Boreanaz in my mind has that sort of charisma but as I said there are many others. Someone who has HIS OWN way to react to situations without trying to imitate how HF would react.

JeffDJ
11-24-2014, 04:46 PM
Oh yeah, I totally agree with that. That's why I'd like someone like Chris Pratt, who has proven he can do the physical stuff, but wouldn't necessarily be a carbon copy of Ford and bring his own spin to the character. And he's young enough that we'd hopefully get more than just 4 movies in a 24-year period. Of course, it's unlikely a new Indy film would be going into production any time soon, so maybe someone else will come along in a few years that will be up to snuff as well.

Indiego Jones
11-25-2014, 03:16 PM
I love Craig's BOND. It's perfect.
But every Bond movie is kind of a reboot.
Sometimes with little "references" to the old movies.
But not a continuation of events, or a respected timeline.

I like O'Connels for Indy. He have that sarcastic humor and can do a believable smirk too.
He's in his 40's. He could play an Indy about in the same age we already saw in the original trilogy.

But, the thing is I'm not pro-reboot.

IMO the best way to continue the franchise (without Ford) is to go in the same direction they did before.
Casting someone to play the same character, on a yonger age (Phoenix, Flannery).

Making a prequel. Not a reboot.

That's why I like Ingruber.
He can do HF impressions very well, he looks like him, and apparently (we have to see this latest movie) he can act.

Ram Man
11-25-2014, 09:41 PM
I can buy into your reasoning Diego. If it were to be a younger Indy (not a reboot) then I think Ingruber would be convincing hands down. If it were a reboot however then I would prefer a new face.

I still like your idea of setting it in the 20's. With that in mind, Ingruber would satisfy me as well.

I could never see Tom Hardy as Indy, but that's because my view is a bit biased since I saw him in a movie titled, "Bronson". Here's how he looks in that movie:

When I see THAT, I think Pat Roach/German Mechanic, not intrepid adventurer! (But I enjoy Tom Hardy's acting and if he was selected, I would still see the movie.) :)

INDY 5 PUT ON BACK BURNER, AS CEO SAYS THEY ARE "PACING THEMSELVES" WITH ALL THE NEW STAR WARS MOVIES COMING.

http://screenrant.com/disney-indiana-jones-5/

I kind of thought this would happen, as how can LUCASFILM make what used to be one star wars movie every three years, into about five films (regular star wars films plus stand alone star wars movies in between), AND an Indiana Jones movie? ILM will have to do the effects for all those films, plus any they are contracted to do for other films, like Avenger movies etc.

Not sure they are big enough for all these massive projects. How big would Disney have to make LUCASFILM and ILM to do all of this??

How old will Harrison be when they ARE able to do another one?

Time is tick'in away..... :doh:

JeffDJ
01-06-2015, 05:59 PM
Yeah, I just don't see how Ford will be able to participate in Indy 5 now, at least not in any significant way. It might not be for another 10 years at this rate, and the guy is already going to be 73 this July. I was thinking they might recreate the Henry/Indy tagalong vibe they had in LC, except with Indy being the doddering older fella being pulled along by, say, Mutt who has taken over the adventuring mantle, but he'd probably be too old for that even. Connery was nowhere that old when he played Henry. If they do go that route, would they recast Mutt? Would anyone want Shia back (or would he even want to come back?), especially after the way he dissed CS? Or would they do the bookends kind of narrative with Old Indy (Ford) relating an adventure to someone, and then we see that adventure with a new actor playing in-his-prime Indy? Only time will tell, but I guess we won't have to worry about it for quite a while yet.

KidHuevos
01-06-2015, 11:58 PM
If they can't make this happen in a year or two, I say forget trying to tie Ford in and start fresh. I'm willing to accept an action hero still doing his thing past his prime, but when said hero is in his mid-80's that's starting to push "suspension of disbelief" way past my tolerance level. ;)

Ford is, and will always be, awesome as Dr. Jones. But, I'm ready for more adventures with a hero in his 30's-40's again.

If they use Bradley Cooper in the role, then I'll be on board to see it. Put Patterson in and I would watch a 3 day Crystal Skull marathon before I would step in a theater to see it.

I'm unfamiliar with Chris Pratt, but at this point I'm concerned about the director. I could imagine any number of hacks in Hollywood getting their meat hooks into this movie and ruining the franchise irrevocably.

JeffDJ
02-01-2015, 06:43 AM
Pratt is the male lead in Guardians of the Galaxy. He's got the good looks/charm/action hero thing that would work well with Indy, I think. There's a cool photoshopped pic of Indy floating around here somewhere with Pratt's head replacing Ford's.

According to this link, Chris Pratt is starring, and Spielberg is returning as director:

Of course, this could all still be rumor.

Well, the article claims Spielberg hopes to direct Pratt. But since there's no script yet or any notion as to when production could start, who knows how things will turn out -- or even if Pratt will even want the role.

This is a very similar article posted by Henry Jones Jr., except it has a little interesting blurb regarding some other of Lucas' efforts:
http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/lucasfilm-new-indiana-jones-film-in-the-works-20150506

It appears Disney also acquired the rights to Willow and Radioland Murders. Now, Radioland Murders was pretty weak and I don't care about whatever they plan to do with it. But Willow? Perhaps we could get a sequel. Warwick Davis could team up with a grown-up Elora Danan and continue the story!

To quote Indy, "Same old same old". We know they're gonna make more Indy movies, and I cannot wait, but I want more than these constant teases every few months. I so hope we get news about a script writer and director this year(fingers crossed that they bring back Spielberg. The man is a genius with camera angles). I would think that Indy would be a priority project for Disney and Lucasfilm, aka Kathleen Kennedy. I know they are wrapped up in setting up Star Wars for the rest of eternity, but they HAVE to get this thing going for Harrison's sake(and all of ours)! We NEED Mr. Ford to don that fedora one more time! We all know they will be recasting Indy eventually to keep the franchise going.

I would love it if they started a "passing of the torch trilogy", so to speak. Harrison could star in the first film, bookend the second film, and then have our new Indy star in the third film. I think this would be a great way to get the most out of Ford before it is too late (God forbid he fly anymore planes!). Anyways, I digress.

By the time they get around to it, bleeding, Ford might have to bookend the first movie.

That would be great! I'd always wondered what became of Willow and everyone. I don't think I read any of the Willow novels sequels that, I think, featured an older Elora -- were those any good? Hopefully Disney won't opt to reboot first.

I haven't read the novels, but I did look them up on Amazon with the intent of buying used copies... and after I read some reviews... I changed my mind.

I won't reveal anything, but the direction the writers decided to take left an extremely sour taste in my mouth, assuming the synopses of the books are accurate.
