It is no secret that, despite making a lot of money at the global box office, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull did not go down too well with fans, who seemed annoyed at the fact that Steven Spielberg had decided to bring aliens into the hit franchise. So when it was announced that there are plans to make Indiana Jones 5, many fans were not exactly excited about the prospect.
One of the things fans complained about with Indiana Jones 4, was he casting of Shia LaBeouf as Mutt, who turned out to be the son of Indiana Jones. Many fans were worried that Shia would take over the mantle from Harrison Ford but, while we know Harrison will be returning, it has now been confirmed that we will not see Shia in Indiana Jones 5.
Screenwriter David Koepp shared, "Harrison plays Indiana Jones, that I can certainly say. And the Shia LaBeouf character is not in the film."
He also admitted that there is not official start date for the project, adding, "We're plugging away at it. In terms of when we would start, I think that's up to Mr Spielberg and Mr Ford. I know we've got a script we're mostly happy with. Work will be endless, of course, and ongoing, and Steven just finished shooting 'The Post'. If the stars align, hopefully it'll be his next film."
Well we just hope that everyone involved in Indiana Jones 5 has learnt from the mistakes they made with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
