Steven Spielberg refused to revive Indiana Jones for a fourth movieMay 17th, 2008 - 5:46 pm ICT by admin
Washington , May 17 (ANI): Ace director Steven Spielberg did not want to start a fourth Indiana Jones flick, as he believed that his ending to the Raiders Of The Lost Ark trilogy was perfect.
But, the veteran film-maker seems to have changed his mind and is now coming up with the fourth film in the series Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
The trilogy that started with Raiders of the Lost Ark, was then continued with Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and ended with Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
And it has been 19 years since Spielberg finally decided to make the fourth in the series of Harrison Ford action films
In fact, the 61-year-old moviemaker admitted it was a struggle to resign to the idea of bringing Indy back to life, but soon changed his mind once the right script was discovered.
“Resistance - in the sense that I made a deal with George in 1977 on the beach in Hawaii to make three of these things if the first one was successful. And to prove to George (Lucas) that I had fulfilled my moral contract, I designed a shot where Harrison (Ford) rode off into the sunset and that’s a classic western side off and I thought that was the end, Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
The latest instalment in the series will be premiered at France ’s Cannes Film Festival on May 18 and will be the first of Spielberg’s films to debut at the festival since his 1982 Oscar-winning film E.T: The Extra-Terrestrial. (ANI)
