Hey folks, Harry here... Now in the last 4 days there have been a TON of rumors about the fourth INDIANA JONES movie... I've heard it will never happen because of the backend deals that Lucas, Spielberg and Ford desire. I've heard it is happening with Ford pulling in between $20 million to $28 million to reprise his role... I've heard that Sean Connery is signed and ready for the next adventure, and I've heard that he isn't going to do it. We've heard that the had the perfect script, that they just had a great treatment, that they have 3 scripts to choose from and that they have no script at all. We've heard it concerns Atlantis, Camelot, Aliens, Lost World and this new one. It all started with the New York Post Page Six story (notably unreliable) and has spread all over the country and the world. So is the following story true.... PROBABLY NOT, but what the hell let's discuss the entire set of theories about what to do with Indy on one last adventure. The rumors are flying, and that's all that they are. But why not have a little fun with them. Remember, Indy has to lose an eye at some point.... for continuity sake... right? Here ya go, remember this is probably not true...
Do you remember who I am? If not, I sent you the headway that Camelot has been holding onto an Indy 4 treatment with the working title "Indiana Jones and the Call of Cthulhu." Now the question is do you believe me? I know you're a man with sources, so I'm sure you've been following the news. As I reported to you weeks ago, Kennedy went on record stating that they had no scripts at that time. Which of course, I told you was a red herring... they had the treatment but no script. Now, she went on record again stating that "they already have three scripts which they're interested in potentially developing, but Spielberg and Lucas will have 'writing control'" (Darkhorizons).
Now Harry, I'm giving you the opportunity to score a large scoop here. "Indiana Jones and the Call of Cthulhu" is quite real and is leader of the three potenticals they have in their possession. Its author... who I will not disclose at this time, has been asked to turn it into a screenplay. The only thing holding it back is the rights to Lovecraft's intellectual property... which lawyers are currently working on. It's obvious the pot is boiling.. time is running out. Do you want the scoop or not? If so, I will fill you in on any thing you would like to know: character breakdowns, detailed plot, writer, etc. If you do not, then good luck with your tv show.
