Fifth Indiana Jones movie in the offingJune 18th, 2009 - 1:26 am ICT by IANS
London, June 17 (IANS) Movie bosses in Hollywood are planning to bring the archaeologist adventurer series Indian Jones back on the big screen for the fifth time, according to actor Shia LaBeouf.
LaBeouf joined hands with Harrison Ford in the movie franchise’s fourth installment, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” last year and played the hero’s son and sidekick Mutt.
After the global success of the film, which came nearly 20 years after “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” (1989), rumours began doing rounds that director Steven Spielberg planned to continue the franchise without Ford, passing the lead to the 22-year-old “Transformers” star, reports contactmusic.com.
The actor has now confirmed that the legendary director is working on another Indiana Jones picture but refused to divulge any details.
“Steve just said that he cracked the story on it, and I think they’re gearing that up,” he said.
Ford and LaBeouf have, however, both dismissed reports that the latter will be leading the franchise in the future, even though LaBeouf recently told the Playboy magazine that his movie father handed him his iconic hat as a parting gift on the sets of the last film.
