Veteran Ford really aims to kill off Indy at the end of Indiana Jones and the Eternal Cross of Paradise? Does Doctor Henry really got a sendoff from Harrison or this is another rumor installment? Till we find out if iconic hazardous explorer would leave the whip to be picked up by his son, let us turn to the past for help.
January 3, 2009 The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull finished 2008 as the second most successful movie at the worldwide box office with $ 787 million.
July 4, 2009 Spielberg could begin filming Indiana Jones 5 as early as 2010.
February 5, 2010 Starring role told Empire Magazine that Ford is ready for Indiana Jones 5 (while talking about Extraordinary Measures, Ford’s most recent box office mega flop disaster).
June 11, 2010 Producer Frank Marshall denied the idea that Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) will have a reduced role with Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf) as the primary hero.
August 27, 2010 Spielberg has revealed the basic plot script to actor Shia Labeouf (the ‘best value’ actor in Hollywood on new list compiled by Forbes magazine).
The fact is that franchise still makes money. But this time Harrison Ford is simply on “stand-by” and Shia LaBeouf is back, possibly as the main star? Or they just need a better script? What do you think?
