The INDIANA JONES 4 rumor mill takes another turn...

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I've had this rumor in the inbox for a little while (thanks to "Judas' Noose") and it’s starting to gain some momentum. I've gotten a second source come to me with the same rumor. So, I thought I'd run something on it. It's a big, giant honking rumor, but a fascinating one. I've been on the record supporting the idea of an INDIANA JONES 4 if it brings the films full circle. You have a great trilogy cap with that riding off into the sunset shot from LAST CRUSADE, so the only place to go in my mind is to make a movie that goes full circle back to RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. We know Marion Ravenwood is in it. We know she had a kid with Indy. We hear that John Hurt could be playing Abner Ravenwood, long lost father of Marion and mentor to Indy, thought dead in his pursuit of the Ark. Seems like that's the direction they're going. The rumors I have been getting say that the big object being searched for is not Atlantis. It is not the Spear of Destiny. It is not a shard of Noah's Ark. This time Indiana has to go back to square one. There is nothing he can possess that can not be taken away. What I hear is that he is searching, once more, for the Ark of the Covenant. The rumor is that the warehouse we see at the end of Raiders is in Groom Lake (aka Area 51) and the Russians are trying to find it in order to one-up the American military might. That would explain Abner being involved in the story. That would further my theory that INDY 4 will act as a bookend to the series, RAIDERS on one side and INDY 4 on the other. If Shia LaBeouf ends up continuing it down the line as rumored, then so be it, but I think we're pretty much guaranteed this will be the last one with Lucas, Spielberg and Ford. I love the idea, but from what I know of the film, from trusted sources within the company, there’s just not really any room for the Ark of the Covenant in the story they're telling. It’s not the main thrust of the movie if it is in the flick and I just can’t see it as being something they’d sideline. So, I know this really doesn’t give you guys a definitive answer and probably just raises more questions, but this is what I know of the rumor right now and I’m sure it’ll be spreading, so I wanted to address it. Hell, it could be that Lucas and Spielberg have us so turned around we don’t know which end is up and they’re off making a completely different movie than everybody’s expecting, feeding us a bunch of bogus rumors and all the set pics and stories have been fabricated. I wouldn’t put it past them. If the Ark does play a part, I think it’s a fascinating choice. If it doesn’t, I’m happy seeing a new adventure, too. What are your thoughts?

    Second! (?)

    by Trancer

    Actually, that would be extremely cool, but I don't know how they'd work it in. Would they tie the Ark in with the "alien" stuff ala Zacharia Sitchin? I can't see them having the balls to even *touch* that.

  • July 9, 2007, 5:04 a.m. CST

    Interesting theory....

    by Laza-rus

    But if they are trying for a retread of Raiders with 21st Century effects, it might not go over well with the existing fanbase. I also like the idea of looking for a shard of Noah's Ark - maybe Morgan Freeman could show up as God and the forth Indy could also bookend the "Almighty" series.

  • July 9, 2007, 5:05 a.m. CST

    around 10th?

    by DarthScotland

    I was wondering what flavour of story could possibly live up to expectation, lets not make this Phantom Menace again, but back to the Ark would be excellent for me. Lucas would ruin an Atlantis film with CGI anyway, but the Ark story always felt slightly unfinshed. WOOT for Indy IV

  • July 9, 2007, 5:06 a.m. CST

    Nice idea

    by bender7

    I don't really mind if the use the Ark again or it's a new adventure. As long as the writing is good and the action is there. A race agains the Russians to regain the Ark could be pretty cool though

    Indiana Jones & The Sword Of Light

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Indy is searching for the mythical sword of light, which they track down using John Hurt's sunglasses. Turns out, this sword once belonged to a friend of a distant ancestor of Indy, and this ancestor is revealed to be a pirate and scoundrel named Han, who came to ancient earth with his drug-addled wife to start a family. While they were here, they also invented pyramids and were constantly baffled by our white earthling milk.<p>Rumour has it, there is a scene where Indy uses the magic sword to slice open a camel to keep Shia La Beouf warm. And he thought they smelled bad on the outside!

  • July 9, 2007, 5:17 a.m. CST

    by newc0253

  • July 9, 2007, 5:19 a.m. CST

    Keep Indy young...

    by BrooseTheScharuk

    ...and in the 1930's/40's. Obviously, it's too late for that now, but I think the character is re-castable -- a la James Bond -- and should be kept in the era of the classic movie serials. I smell a youthful "Indy Jones junior" updating here, with La Beouf taking gover as the "new face of the franchise" and bringing it into a somewhat more modern era. Every fucking thing has to be re-modeled for 17-year-olds these days, and when you go back into the twentieth century more than forty years or so now, it's only "cool" if it's about muddy army guys holding each others intestines in. Then again, I'm one of those rare people who thinks the series would have been EVEN better if first choice Tom Selleck had been able to get out of his Magnum contract to play Indy. A fan, but not necessarily attached to Harrison Ford as the sole wearer of the hat.

    by skynetbauxi

    nice theory, only that RAIDERS is actually EPISODE II of the INDIANA JONES SAGA, because TEMPLE OF DOOM is a prequel... so, this would be like saying A NEW HOPE and REVENGE OF THE SITH are the bookends to the STAR WARS SAGA, which wouldn't seem quite right, would it?

    As long as the artifact is religioius in nature . . .

    by ShallowGrave

    then it deserves to have Indy chasing it. I'm just glad the John Hurt as Einstein shit isn't coming to fruition because Indy has always been about his search, or inevitable discovery of, cool ass religious paraphenalia.

  • July 9, 2007, 7:12 a.m. CST

    It's based on Saturday morning serials


    You know the episodic cliffhanger variety. Raiders is about the Ark, Doom is about a Temple and some Shakira stones or whatever and Last Crusade is about the Holy Grail so re-visiting the Ark is a bit Sh*t!<P>Go to Atlantis or Area 51 and search for the Spear of Destiny or whateber... Just don't try and bring it full circle and tie it all up coz you tried that last time with, you know - The LAST Crusade! and look where that got you!!!

    Ancient astronauts, Area 51 and The Shatner!

    by HarryBlackPotter

    OKay, I've been reading some of Frank Darrabont's draft has made it into the shooting script, but Lucas didn't like the sacrilgious aspects concerning god really being an astronaut who came to earth in a spaceship and giving Moses the Ark of the Covenant which was a why of talking to E.T.'s. There was a book in the 1970's about this weird god being an alien shit and it was turned into a documentary with William Shatner. If you haven't seen it, go to ebay / Amazon, whatever, but it has to be seen to be believed 'cos it's a fucking mental trip and so funny you will piss from your eyes!

    BrooseTheScharuk - Recast Indy? WHAT?

    by Mosquito March

    The character of Indiana Jones is not in any way "recastable". Harrison Ford is Indy, and that's it. The only reason River Phoenix worked is because he looked like Ford and replicated his mannerisms completely (unlike 'Powder' on YIJC).

    by TrainWreck1969

    Where's the Archeology in finding something (AotC) that has already been found? This is cheap, unimaginative cr@p. Let Indy and Marion's son find Atlantis, Noah's Ark, an alien spacecraft in Central America, anything new, but NOT go back to the Ark. IJ4 on its own as a movie will be mediocre at best. And if they go after he Ark again, it will cheapen the perfection of Raiders, and that spectacular ending. Let the Ark be lost to the ages. Move on Georgey Porgie and Senior Spielbergo.

    New prequel trilogy confirmed!!

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    This has been in my in-box for a while, but I thought I'd share it with you.<p>George Lucas has confirmed he is about to start shooting a second prequel trilogy. The first film, Episode Ia - Han & Chewie The Early Years, will cover the meeting of this iconic movie duo and set the stage for a triple whammy that tells the whole story leading up to the beginning of Star Wars - Episode IV - Star Wars.<p>In Episode Ia we learn that Han & Chewie meet through an ad on SpaceMySpace and start a small business as intergalactic space hairdressers. With a meagre amount of start-up money, they buy a used spaceship from Han's old buddy - fashion designer Lando Calrissian - and take to the skies to deliver stylish yet affordable hair designs through the galaxy. Later, possibly in Star Wars - Episode IIa - Han & Chewie's Excellent Adventure, they will declare themselves to be pirates in a desperate attempt to appear cool.<p>Tobey Maguire is attached as Han Solo, while Chewbacca will be a completely CGI creation.

    "Hell, it could be that Lucas and Spielberg have us so turned around we don’t know which end is up and they’re off making a completely different movie than everybody’s expecting, feeding us a bunch of bogus rumors and all the set pics and stories have been fabricated. I wouldn’t put it past them." I certainly would. Lucas and Spielberg don't care enough about hardcore fanboys to even bother with trying to turn them around, feeding bogus rumors, etc. They're just making a movie, dude, and trying to drum up a little publicity for it by releasing promotional photos and what not.

    Indiana Jones & The Fluctuating Expectations

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    I thought this new film was a shit idea at first, but then that picture of Ford in the Indy outfit got me all excited. But I came here and was reminded about what a grey charisma void Harrison Ford has turned into over the past fifteen years.<p>Maybe the maguffin of this new Indy adventure will be the evil machine that was used to drain the life out of Ford shortly after The Fugutive. There will be a series of tubes and whatnot, maybe with a large vat or something, and Indy will be reattached to it in the third act and have his life force squirted back into him. Then, he will stop being a walking sleepy-making machine and make some decent new films. The villain will be revealed to be Nathan Fillion, who abducted Ford's persona and has so far used it in an unsuccessful bid to crack the film business. Mwahahahaha, etc.

    No Buying this One

    by scifi guy

    You guys have seriously lost it, or you have no freaking idea what this movie is about. When Quint starts of his article with the phrase, "rumor in the inbox for a little while." I start to lose faith in what follows in this piece of crap speculation. I want to hear what Mori and JettL93 have to say about this. I trust these two guys a lot more than some random thing sitting in my inbox. Come on, Quint, you are just giving these haters of this movie something they can pick it and add to there arsenal. Most of the people in here have already written off ID4 as a bad film, when they do not even know what the film will be about. Everyone jumps to conclusions. Last time I checked, Firewall was not directed by SS or produces by GL. It takes a lot of people to make movie and it takes a lot of great people with unbelievable chemistry to make a great film. I have faith in this trio. When has this trio collaborated to make a down right horrible film? Keep the Faith people and thanks to posters like Just Pillow Talk and Finky who keep the classy posters alive.

    by finky089

    As I read the very beginning of this article from Quint, I wondered it it had to do with "Jett". But I have to wonder why, if Quint got Jett's e-mail, does he not really mention much of what Jett has told us. <p> I mean, the whole thing about Indy going after the ARK again? That ain't coming from Jett. And I hope it ain't true, either. It's one thing to "bookend" a series, but that can be done here wth Marion, Abner, and Indy; no Ark required.

    About Harrison

    by Massive_Bereavement

    Can anyone provide evidence that Ford hasn't been a tired shadow of his former self for the last 10 years? Every time I see this point raised, my natural reaction is to leap to his defence, but in all honesty I have to begrudgingly agree. I've seen nothing of the old Harrison in nearly a decade. Sucks.

    by finky089

    Some of what Quint says jives with what Jett has been telling us all along. But he may have gotten that info from Jett. <p> On the other hand, I don't know what, if any, influence Moriarty has over Quint. The way Jett and Mori got into it a little at the end of the last Indy TB (go back a take a quick look at the 7/2 one if you haven't yet), I wouldn't be surprised if Mori told Quint to not acknowledge Jett. At least not until Mori had a chance to examine everything. <p> I guess what we need to hear from Quint is whether he DID actually receive the e-mail from Jett. And what he (and Mori) think about what they rec'd).

    by Massive_Bereavement

    Just wondering...You mentioned before that: 'the giant room from the end of raiders does play a key part in the script, its been almost 30 years but we will finally get to learn more about it.' So if the Ark isn't in the plot, how does the giant warehouse fit into the whole equation?

    "Pharaoh's Crown" and S American temples

    by finky089

    I will say that it is kind of odd that Indy would be searching for an artifact that would have originated in the Nile area in an Aztec temple (re: the pics we saw from the Universal backlot). <p> According to Jett, this IS for Indy IV (which we all suspected, despite the NT2 red herring story). But it does seem like something that would be in congruant. Mentally, I'm still calling this one IJ & the Crown of Destiny.

    Them skulls...

    by Massive_Bereavement

    Yeah I dont have a problem with them being moved about after they were discovered, but the point is, these skulls, if they are the same ones, do actually exist in real life, and most of them were discovered in aztec and mayan ruins. If this wasn't there origin, I see little reason why they would be planted there and left to be discovered after the event. Of course, if they are in the film, these skulls maybe of a completely different origin to those found in real life. It strikes me as a little odd that they would want to take something that already exists and want to surround it in their own completely fictional mythology and history though.

    JettL93 is a liar. Period. He's never e-mailed me any of his fabled information, and he doesn't respond when I e-mailed the address he used to register for talkback. When asked to prove anything, he's unable, and I've dealt with enough internet liars over the years to know certain tricks they pull as they troll. <P>JettL93 reads rumors in other places. He adds his own made up information to the rumors, to give them just enough of a hint of the truth to be credible. But he's wrong about the big stuff. Anything you've only read from him, discount it. <P>I have verified and reverified the INDY 4 stuff I know so far, and JettL93 doesn't check out. At all. I've been fairly gentle about this with him so far, but I'm not remotely confused about this, and considering how many of you are e-mailing me about the situation, I can tell that it's important to you. <P>He's a liar. He has been trolling you. I understand that some of you enjoyed it, because it generated INDY 4 speculation that you were able to participate in. By all means, keep it up. Be encouraged by speculation and rumors and whatever. I don't think this article today is accurate, either, because it doesn't match what we know already. Quint addresses that a bit at the bottom... that we're at the point in development where we always see people start to go batshit with insane stories about films that just aren't true. There are a LOT of conflicting rumors floating around about INDY 4, and I'm sure that's just the way Lucasfilm and Paramount likes it.

    Indiana Jones returns to the big screen. Nineteen years after finding and losing the Holy Grail, Indiana is called by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the organization holding the Ark from "Raiders". The Council and it's counterpart cousin, the Trilateral Commission, are missing an important piece to the Ark. If found, it will restored to its original place in the world. However, this task won't be easy for Indiana because an artifact, "the All Seeing Eye Jewel of 12 Stones," called "Ephod," helps to find it and reveals about prophecy about the coming of Melchizedek from the book of Genesis and Indiana learns more than he bargained for.<P>seems a bit convoluted, doesn't it? it also sounds way too much like the middle third of Raiders...they wouldn't do that much of a rehash, would they?

    by Ray Gamma

    regarding Quint's theory that they might be 'misleading' us about the plot/released info etc:</P> <P> while they were making the Star Wars prequels, I kept on reading all the fansites for tidbits about plot spoilers and rumors etc... in the hope that Lucas was maybe 'misleading' us all with what was being leaked, and in the hope that he was actually going to blow our minds with a movie that bore no resemblance to the leaked 'spoilers'....</P> <P> but no. when each of the Star Wars prequels came out, it did indeed turn out that EVERY SINGLE FUCKING DETAIL OF THOSE MOVIES HAD BEEN LEAKED, DISCUSSED, AND DISPLAYED IN PHOTOS PRIOR TO THE ACTUAL MOVIE BEING RELEASED. which, to this day, is absolutely one of the most plausible explanations for why so many people were disappointed with the prequels. there simply were no fucking surprises left come the day of release! we'd seen the whole movie already on the internet fan sites!</P> <P> For the love of God, let's get back to those days, like the early eighties, when a new movie really was a 'new' movie, when it had the power to be an overnight phenomenon, when nobody had read 'spoilers'. Why on earth do film studios these days think it's a good idea to give away EVERY FUCKING DETAIL INCLUDING STILLS OF EVERY FUCKING COOL MOMENT FROM THE FORTHCOMING MOVIE, in the misguided belief that fans will actually be happy when they finally see the film? what's the fucking point in watching the movie when you've seen all the cool stuff already on the net? it's not 'promotion' at all, it's actually 'destruction'.

    Son of a ......

    by The Cine-eater

    You can tell a franchise is getting desperate when they have to have son/daughter in the movie so they can continue the franchise.Come on spielberg I expected it of Lucas but you also have a say and this is one of the cheapest ploys to keep Indy going, why not have the balls to end the series after this one and invent a new icon.

    Totally agree with giving everything away in spoilers and trailers, there is only one good film trailer in my opinion and thats the TrainSpotting trailer, it showed nothing to do with the film only Ewan tied to the train tracks saying don't do this do that.Trailers should not show anything from the film it should set up the movie or give you a taste of the films style.

I'll even settle for that one. <p>As for plot, all I would want is a discription - not the entire flick spelled out. A discription wouldn't hurt anything and still leave a for many surprises.

If George Lucas fucks anything up (i e Star Wars is ruined for me what with the special edition and prequels) I will be destroyed. However this movie and some of the rumors have kept me on my toes.

    Bringing aliens into Indy is just so fucking out of place and non-nonsensical. That's just so not the tone of the series. And I'm discouraged by how strongly the rumors have been leaning that way.<br> <br> The only way it could work is if the aliens were recognizable from other aliens in the extended Speilberg/Lucas canon. The Close Encounter guys, the E.T.s, maybe the War of the World's guys, and hell, even the transformers. Use recongnizable aliens and it may not seem so off.

    I'm not Shia fan. And when it was first announced that he was OFFICIALLY in this flick, I groaned as loud as I did when I first saw Bay's Transformer designs. <p> But the (hopeful) reality here is that this will be an INDY movie. Shia may play an "important" role, but we shouldn't be running off with the idea that he's going to share top billing with Ford. <p> I would assume his role will be like SHort Rounds'- it'll play an important part, have a purpose, but ultimately not try to fight Indy for the "lead".

    City of the Gods?

    by Heretic3k

    What happened to the rumored title "Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods"? Just wondering. Anyway...since the first 3 movies were set in the 1930s, capturing the cliffhanger action of movie serials of that era, wouldn't it be neat if the new film, set in the 1950s, would capture the 'sci-fi/atomic unknown' genre of that era? It would be a perfect reason for the Area 51/flying saucers/Atlantis rumors. Just my thoughts.

    John William's Ark of the Covenant Theme...

Who didn't get the heebeejeebees the first time the them is played when Indy describes the power of the Ark to the FBI guys at his school, or when Marcus warns Indy to be careful? I really hope this rumor is true just to get Williams to pick up the Ark Theme, dust it off, and render it to us in full glory in all of these theaters with super surround sound. Gettin' chills just thinking about it!

    by scifi guy

    This was just posted by someone who worked on the set of Indy IV in New Haven. He is also a student at Yale. Here it is.... I work in New Haven and during a lunch break a co-worker and I were able to sneak onto the set with our Yale IDs. They're using Yale's campus for their fake "Marshall College." The scene we saw was with Harrison Ford and Shia and a bunch of extras. I believe the car that they're being chased in crashes into a statue. The big scene though for the week was the actual car/motorcycle chase scene with Harrison and Shia. The streets of New Haven were shut down and re-created to look like the 1950s. I know they shot scenes in one of Yale's libraries and on the football field. But the majority of the scenes we were able to watch happened either outside in the streets or in one of Yale's quads.

    by Lornsorrow

    Indiana Jones & the search for the Pixie-Faries of Bubble-Yum Forest. George comments about his script: "The audience will love it if only they believe in it enough! I believe in this project! See how easy it is if we just believe?" Fans reaction to this news was to attempt to take out a restraining order on Lucas to not allow him within 10 miles of the films set. Meanwhile, other Indiana Jones fans are seeking to have him committed to a local asylum but so far have been turned away by asylum staff for having no hope for his rehabilitation. "We can try to put sanity back into someone who once lost it, but when it comes to someone who never had much sanity to begin with, well, the only thing you can do is go through his clothes and look for loose change" asylum staff remarked. Last word on Lucas is that some fans are planning on kidnapping Lucas and leaving him marooned on a deserted island somewhere (though a message was recently found tied to a hot air balloon that read "Don't you dare fuckin send him our way" signed, "Gilligan").

    Because its Spielberg/Lucas/Ford DOESN'T make it good

    by Big Dumb Ape

    I've been up and down on this movie and still continue to be. Like a lot of people, I loved the original trilogy and have no problem just letting my DVDs sit peacefully on a shelf, ready to be watched when the mood strikes. I have no problem remembering them for what they once were...<p>...Which is why it will utterly cause SUCH geek outrage and vomit hurling hatred to erupt if they NOW make a new film after all this time that is just plain shitty or even simply average given Ford's age and assorted other factors. To that end, I wasn't against the return of Indiana Jones as a character -- then again I NEVER bought into the rabid fanboy thinking that ONLY Ford could be Indy. To that end, I'm also one of those who thought "Hey, if Spielberg feels the juice and wants to make a few new Indy films, fine. Do a Bond-like recasting with a guy in his prime, so we'll buy into all the stunts onscreen, and we're right back in WWII fighting Nazis and looking for cool artifacts with supernatural overtones."<p>My continual problem with this movie is that we have to remember WHO is making this. Keep in mind things like Frank Darabont writing a script that Spielberg declared as being the "best since the original RAIDERS script", and then Lucas stepping in to unzip his fly and piss all over it and say it wasn't good and that HE was going to rewrite it to make it "good" -- because as we all know, he proved he was SUCH the great writer on the Prequels. In fact, let history show that EPISODE 4 was actually heavily rewritten by Hyuck and Katz and of course its obvoius the effect that Kasdan had on EMPIRE and JEDI.<p>So again, seriously, keep in mind WHO is producing this and exerting HIS Producer power. Which makes me groan because this is the same guy who thought Midechlorians was a good idea to explain the Force...who thought Jar Jar was going to be a fan favorite sidekick to rival Chewbacca, racially insulting voice and all...who took 20 years off from the world's most famous film franchise, which meant he had ALL the time in the world (not to mention all the money in the world to hire story and scripting help), only to return and shit out 3 terrible films to the disappointment of the entire world. So when I hear ideas like Indy is walking through the warehouse and comes upon a broken box that has te Ark sticking out of it, at which point he makes a wisecrack, those who say "I can't believe that happens. It's too fluke a chance thing to show onscreen" REALLY have to remember who's producing this. And Spielberg's to blame TOO since things like that are EXACTLY the tiny bits of so-called humor that both he and Lucas think are "cute" and that we'll all love. They think having things like THAT happen will appease the geeks -- the problem being we don't care about tiny shit moments like that, we care about the far larger overall picture...which I'm still predicting given (1) Ford's age and lack of acting enthusiasm in years and years, as well as (2) Lucas' ability to demonstrate shit taste and the fact that he's lost it (given the Prequels) and (3) even Spielberg can be hit and miss these days (I mean, come on, WOTW was about as mainstream a movie tailored for Spielberg and it was a shitty borefest punctuated by Spielberg thinking that a screaming, whiny kid brat like Dakata Fanning is what "geeks" wanted to see in THE MOST FAMOUS ALIENS INVADING AND DESTROYING THE WORLD STORY EVER.<p>So if this turns out good, it'll be a miracle. If it turns out to be groan inducing, it will be like a bucket of ice water thrown in film fans faces at which point they'll HAVE to wake up and say "Oh, that's right. Deep down I DID think these guys had lost it, I just didn't want to admit it."<p>But for old time's sake, I'll keep my fingers crossed. So Dear Heaven, PLEASE don't let this suck...

    by Bronx Cheer

    that Indiana Jones is too old for this shit. She saw FIREWALL and cringed when she watched Ford attempt to walk upright, let alone engage in fights. (Okay, honestly? She said not a thing about Ford or Indy 4. But she did say that Transformers was really loud.)(Okay, she didn't say that either. But it was. Very loud, that is.)

    I didn't mean to make it seem like I was trying to discredit Scorcese or Coppola. I too love the Godfather films, The Conversation, Apocalypse Now, Mean Streets, Raging Bull and a lot of their classics but I was trying to make a point about Steven's range as a director. Moreso than Scorcese and Coppola he's turned out films in varying genres consistently for a very long time. Of the three director's he's actually learnt how to create serious pieces of art as well as commercial blockbusters. There isn't anything he's ever really failed at (well except 1491). Anyone who says they're over Spielberg needs to have their head chacked. Either that or they've not seen anything he's done other than Jurassic Park. I was being narrow to make a point...guess it didn't entirely work.

    Any truth to the "Mutt Ravenwood" rumors?

    by nomihs

    This from IGN - "It appears — and this is only informed speculation — that near the beginning of the film, while Dr. Jones is teaching a class, he is disrupted by anti-Communist demonstrations and the astonishing appearance of his old mentor Abner Ravenwood (source: Ain't It Cool News), who was mentioned in Raiders and long presumed dead. Indy rushes out to meet him, but the Russians are after Ravenwood too, and for some reason Ravenwood's grandson Mutt (played by Shia) is also in town. A chase breaks out between secret government agents (probably Russian, but possibly American or both) and Jones — who's forced to team up with Mutt on his motorcycle. It's not clear if the villains have nabbed old Abner or are merely trying to get their hands on him, but once it's all over, Indy and the Ravenwoods discuss mysterious topics like Area 51, aliens, and ancient crystal skulls." - Anyone...Anyone?

    Just tell us what hapd to the girl w/the "love you" eye

    by lettersoftransit

    I nearly became an archeology professor to get that girl, til I realized I'd also have to go back in time or find her in some rest home squawking about the pulp in her o.j. My only theory about Indy 4 is that after Jones brushed her off she ended up with the fat guy at the end who loved to say "top... men." Once I know what happened to those two they can pretty much do whatever they want with the rest of the cast.

    Indiana Jones and the Zombie from Tibet

    by kname2

    Abner was meant to be dead from the get go...I know the dialogue changed a bit in the final cut of Radiers, but the 3rd draft of Kasdan's script says--- INDY- What happened? MARION- Avalanche. Up there. He was digging. What else? He spent his whole life digging. Dragging me all over this rotten Earth.For what? Indy-Did you find him? MARION-Hell no. He's buried where he was working. Probably preserved real good,too. In the snow. So, is Abner a frozen zombie out to kill Indy? Maybe he wants the fedora and whip back...

  • July 10, 2007, 12:20 a.m. CST

    Possible Spoiler from IMDB

    by decfx

    Indiana Jones returns to the big screen. Nineteen years after finding and losing the Holy Grail, Indiana is called by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the organization holding the Ark from "Raiders". The Council and it's counterpart cousin, the Trilateral Commission, are missing an important piece to the Ark. If found, it will restored to its original place in the world. However, this task won't be easy for Indiana because an artifact, "the All Seeing Eye Jewel of 12 Stones," called "Ephod," helps to find it and reveals about prophecy about the coming of Melchizedek from the book of Genesis and Indiana learns more than he bargained for.

  • July 10, 2007, 12:39 a.m. CST

    better idea...

    by kname2

    why not swap Lucas and Spielberg for Tim Story and Bret Ratner? since they are playing with continuity and bringing Abner back from the dead why not bring these 2 "experts" in to finish the job?

    Going back to the first story is risky.

    by rbatty024

    I know everyone wants the "bookend", but Indy has plenty of adventures (in the films, the show, and offscreen in our imaginations) so we don't need the quadrilogy(?) to be self-contained. What we need is another great Indiana Jones story. Make an allusion here and there to adventures past, but don't go fucking up the previous films.

  • July 10, 2007, 1:01 a.m. CST


    by kname2

    exactly...let the others stand as is...the chronolgy was not straight through on the others...obviously, this one is much, how dare I original script?

  • July 10, 2007, 1:05 a.m. CST

    I'm also concerned because look at the movies....

    by rbatty024

    that all of a sudden became self-contained trilogies: The Matrix and Pirates of the Carribean. Both had fantastic first films and then horrendous sequels that tried to tie up the first movie into a larger story when it wasn't supposed to in the first place. If they make a bad fourth film then oh well. At least they tried and we have the other three, but once you add to the mythology of the first film then there's no way the rest of us will be able to watch Raiders without thinking that the shitty fourth movie. It takes effort now to watch the original Matrix without thinking about how crappy they fucked things up.

  • July 10, 2007, 1:06 a.m. CST

    David Koepp said.....

    by teamneedle

    that it is important not to make references to the previous films, and that this one needs to stand on its own. Based from that, I think it is safe to say this will be a 100% original story. Check's achieve for the exact quote.

    shia will not be indys son

    by CQuest

    at least, from the beginning. he will be marions nephew as far as indy is concerned. shia's character will not know anything about indy, or what he did previously. as far as he is concerned he is just some old guy that he is showing around town as a favor for his aunt marion....that is until the russians show up to come after indy in ravewood fashion with the nazis in the first one,in order to get him to help them and shia thinks its thugs after HIM, and they have a good chase, until indy gets fed up and basically fights back. then shia and indy have the whole "who ARE you" convo where shia looks at him in a new light. it is also where shia starts to piece together who is father may really be. this is roughly 10-12 minutes of the movie we are talkin.

    by finky089

    I'm guessing you're kidding, but just in case, "no", me and Jett are not the same. I'm just a guy who has a nerdishly deep satisfaction from discussing Indy. <p> but, you're right about the e-mails. I exchanged emails with Mori Monday morning asking him if he or Quint (who was also cc'ed) rec'd anything, and as of about 10am Pacific time Mori had rec'd zip. So, I stand corrected, having mispoken about that topic. <p> But I'm also pretty much on thye verge of not caring anymore.

    by Johnnytheboy

    The Ark Of the Covenant

    by IndiAbbey Jones

    is about ten billion times cooler than any Crystal Skulls! I have confidence that it can be worked into the story in a logical and entertaining way without pissing all over Raiders. I like to imagine that the baddie (Cate Blanchett) is using the Russians to get her hands on the Ark - using their break-in of Area 51 (warehouse), supposedly looking for Atom bombs as a cover. I still feel good about this movie despite all the Haters. Oh, and i think that JettL93 is rubbing our rhubarb.

    What The Hell...?!

    by MarkoOhNo

    Adam Sandler was in an episode of the original Cosby Show?!? I was just about to write a comment when I saw him hangin out with Theo and some of his other friends in an old rerun which I happened to have playing in the background. That had to be pre-SNL, he looked like a teenager. Anyway, yeah, that was more interesting to me than the idea of Shia LaBeouf starring in a string of Indiana Jones flicks. Great way to get fans to boycott the titles they love (as was done with Transformers.) The 'back to the Ark' idea though...? That WOULD be a great way to wrap up Ford's Indy career. But if they're gonna try to pass it on to a new generation they NEED to find someone other than LaBeouf. Otherwise, they may as well just forget about it. I'd sooner watch Brandon Frasier continue the series. (BURN!!)

    Some info I scrounged up

    by scifi guy

    Hawaii Tribune has started to post info about the filming taking place. Here are two links to articles. Also, the opening scene is supposed to be by the waterfall featuring a ton of Russian soldiers as there has already been a casting call in that local area of Hawaii when the film was titled "The Untitled Genre Project" to cover up that it was Indy 4. By the way, finky, I will let you know when I hear back from Mori.

    Do you believe this newspaper a liar or is it you?

  • July 10, 2007, 12:07 p.m. CST

    The newspaper sources have a different story, Jett.

    by finky089

    Can you bridge this disparate information? More than one source in the Hawaii Tribune story indicates the filming there involves what appears to be casting for "East European" soldier types. But we heard from you previously that Indy is at a dig in the beginning when the chase with the Ruskies starts. <p> Can you clear this up? Or, as scifi asked, are the newspaper sources just wrong?

    by just pillow talk

    Time of the whip is upon us now...<p>And it doesn't mean Jett is wrong because the second link from scifi guy says "One of the opening sequences of the film will have the archaeologist/adventurer Jones, played by Harrison Ford, in a fight sequence with Russian soldiers, Ryan wrote -- a scenario reminiscent of the video game "Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine." So that means it's in the beginning, but not THE opening sequence.

    I unfortunately don't get the fight scene they reference since I haven't played this game. Can anyone shed some light on what kinda fight scene this might be like? <p> Personally, I'd love to see another airplane hangar/truck chase sequence, but is that asking for too much? That whole part of Raiders is hands down one of my favorite parts of any movie I've ever seen.

    . . . grown up by the time of "Indy 4." If not too late, how 'bout casting the versatile Takeshi Kaneshiro (i.e., dramatic? "Chungking Express." Action/thriller? "Returner" [add in "sci-fi" as well]. Martial artsa? "House of Flying Daggers.") as Shorty. Kaneshiro speaks Chinese language AND Japanese language, quite the fit for a Jones protege.

Risking your fucking JOB to troll talkbacks with your 'information' rather than just e-mailing the webmasters of fan sites, or leaking some pics through another channel to help cover yourself? Can you imagine being SO BORED working on fucking INDIANA JONES IV, that you would expend this much time and energy talking to a handful of dweebs (no offense) trying to convince them you're actually working where you're working and that you 'know' something? I mean, give me a fucking break already. It ain't rocket science, folks. It's basic logic.

    revelation about Jett

    by sunrunner

    I've studied Jett's use of language and I can, with a high degree of certainty, reveal that he is Canadian. Interesting as American's are generally apathetic and disinterested in the country and it's inhabitants. The people are known as polite and eager to please, yet if they desire it, have to go to extraordinary measures to seek attention. Thus there is a high number of succesful Canadian's in show business (Jim Carrey, Mike J. Fox, Mike Myers). Sadly AICN is as close as Jett has ever come to show busines. That is just sad.

    just because I'm not being a rancid dick to the guy like some of the others on here doesn't mean I still think he's legit.

  • July 10, 2007, 6:39 p.m. CST

    I don't know how... but SOMEHOW I knew

    by Frijole

    that that link was going to either RICK ROLL me or take me to a cpi or video of some dude's twisted, puckered anus. Nicely played Jett... you lying, ignorant, lovable nitwit!

  • July 10, 2007, 6:41 p.m. CST

    Based on what Frijole said

    by finky089

    I'm not sure I can bring myself to see what the link beholds. In fact, if it IS a twisted puckering asshole (which, with Shia, it might be), the server may block it anyway...

  • July 10, 2007, 6:46 p.m. CST

    So...Shia actually has a talent after all

    by BlackIronPrison

    that single-handedly makes me feel better about everything...

  • July 10, 2007, 6:49 p.m. CST

    Jett, why do you want to be so important?

    by finky089

    I mean, you're taking our disbelief in you really shittily. Besides the point which seveal people have made, or at least pondered, here about why you would risk fucking up a good job/relationship with Lucas, SS , etc, why would you stick around and pin so much hope on Mori and AICN when those are the same people telling you to go away b/c you're "Fake"? <p> If you were at all legit and were getting shabby treatment like this (though I think you haven't been able to produce anything to suggest we should now believe you), why would you stick around?

  • July 10, 2007, 6:51 p.m. CST

    BlackIronPrison, THAT makes you feel "what"?

    by finky089

    Saying "singlehandedly" after a comment about a puckering anus and Shia conveys a pretty humorous message.

  • July 10, 2007, 6:55 p.m. CST

    So Jett, when did you first cook up your idea

    by finky089

    to spin this whole fake story to AICNers? Dude, if you have just played it cool, you could have avoided the wrath of TBers. That's not to suggest anymore more would have believed you, but you wouldn't have everyone know you were trying so hard to decieve people here. That fake poster- bad, bad faux pas.

  • July 10, 2007, 7:09 p.m. CST

    I don't buy it, Rotherham

    by finky089

    Why start believing you now. You just wanted to lie. Period. It' okay to admit it. ;) <p> And in the end, you made a little splash in the little world of Indy Internet gossip. Have you tried googling "jettl93" yet? <p> You can even see BlackIronPrison's post on the Jedi Council Forums. Congrats, you inglorious bastard!

    by Frijole

    then how do you explain the numerous spelling and grammatical errors. Mouth-breathing numbskulls have no business writing books. Even though you've "come clean", you're still a bigger douche than ever and your "ruse" was never clever to begin with.

    JettL93, further proof Canada Sucks

    by sunrunner

    Jett's definitely a Canuck, I will not go into how I know this but I've made observations on his use of language. Another confirmation is his use of Facebook, which is the preferred social networking site in Canada though pales in comparison to Myspace in the States. Point is, FUCK YOU CANADA, FUCK YOU!!!!! I outed you, eh.

    by mrfan

    for giving everyone a good laugh. I especially like the part where you type a post and then go into denial of doing it. Since you like playing the game of make believe how about making up something new. You seem to have a wild imagination.

    Actually you are right sunrunner, I was in the USA in 2005 and every taxi driver in the place thought I was English. Unless you sound like Steve Irwin nobody recognises it. And yes, Supershadow blows goats.

    by sunrunner

    You should know pretty much everything Americans know of Oz comes from Crocodile Dundee and a Paul Hogan commerical for Aussie tourism in the 1980s. Yet for some reason Americans always want to assume Brits are Aussies. As for NZ, I'm loving the accent from Flight of the Conchords on HBO here, which is described within the show as "Robotic and sort of a monotone". Almost forgot to say FUCK YOU SUPERSHADOW!!!! FUCK YOU CANADA!!!!!

The whip-whacking action hero battles Russian soldiers near a Hamakua waterfall for the film's opening sequence. The film's budget is an estimated $125 million." First?! Heh.

    by WX1

    Heh, here’s to a period, jazzed up, English’d (Buble cameo, perhaps?) version of “Lapti Nek” to appear in the movie (hey, if they can moniker an entire friggin’ high class club as “Obi Wan”). Can’t seem to get over the LeBouf as Indy’s and Marion’s son, though. Quite a quantum leap. I’m still on the fence with LeBouf; feel like I’m gonna break out into seizure with some of the acting he does. Shia's certainly getting some damn major exposure. Maybe a prime (pardon the pun) thespian in this day and age of high graphics and quick ‘lectronic stuff? Also . . . correct me if I'm wrong, but, wasn't that first indigenous race chasing after Indy in the first scene of "Raiders" THE very first scene filmed by Spielberg for the first (second? Whoever above mentioned that "Temple of Doom" was a prequel, hmmm . . . I like that notion. Excuse to watch that again) film? AND filmed on Kauai? Full circle was also mentioned above, right? Hmmmm.

    Maybe someone who is more informed on this sequel can tell me better, but I always interpeted the sequel news as Connery being a major character. Son, Dad and Grandpa all fighting the Nazis... errr, I mean the Commies! If they replaced Connery with Marian's father who even without a physical appearance, I still remember his name and memory in the battle between those two, well... I think that's a great compromise!
