Alright folks, once again we have a RUMOR, that word means that what will follow will go into the gigantic pantheon of alleged truths that we can not validate... meaning... It could be a load of hooey or it could not be. In all probability this isn't 'THE' script because George and crew say they have/had a script in readiness, which would mean... why would there be a newly submitted 'treatment'? As you can see I do have my doubts about this one, so take it easy and just... 'entertain' the concept, but know that it most likely won't come to pass.
HEY HARRY, here’s the lowdown on the current status of the INDY 4 flick. I know the Atlantis rumors have seemingly been squashed but here’s the treatment a screenwriter at CAA has turned in for consideration. I’ll be brief so excuse the punctuation and grammar
INDY, working in Egypt, circa 1947, encounters a Mysterious Egyptian at the Great Pyramids. IT turns out that he has escaped from Atlantis and needs to prevent the destruction of the Atlanteans. He is to marry the King's Daughter, but his fellow Egyptian has heard of the surface world and wants to raise Atlantis. This second Egyptian is none other than the ancient Pharaoh-GOD, RAMSES . He is now a mummy and plans to Destroy the Atlanteans, who are ALIEN in ORIGIN, and Raise the Continent through the triggering of a massive EarthQuake. INDY finds Atlantis at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, the city was spared because they trapped themselves inside a giant dome. THERE An Egyptian Minority population still thrives.
INDY must choose between the rise of the world's greatest archeological find and the death of the Atlanteans, or to help preserve the marriage of the Egyptian to his Atlantean Love by joining him to defeat RAMSES.
As you can see the story, is magnificent, with room to add tremendous conflict and spectacular visuals. Imagine when Indy approaches Atlantis and enters the dazzling city! It also introduces an awesome villain and great supporting characters that we will actually care about their fate! I hope they go with this treatment, it would be awesome. Call me KABOOM.
