Shia LaBeouf Talks Indy 5!
Plus Oliver Stone's Wall Street sequel

16 June 2009  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: BBC

submit to reddit

It's just the briefest sliver of a snippet, hidden in a BBC interview to publicise Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ("we're making movies about toys - it's not The Elephant Man!"), but Shia LaBeouf has let slip that a follow-up to last year's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is taking some kind of embryonic shape.

"Steven [Spielberg] just said that he cracked the story on it, and I think they're gearing it up," he told Auntie Beeb, which is all kinds of interesting. After all, while Crystal Skull made $800 million at the global box office, it's probably fair to say that it's not as well-regarded as its predecessors, and as a result there's precious little fan clamour for a fifth Indy outing.

But if Messrs. Spielberg, Lucas and Ford feel that there's another Indy story to tell, who are we to stop them? And let's face it - no matter what your opinion of Indy IV, Ford was great, and the prospect of seeing him crack the whip again is still a tantalising one. Just no CG gophers this time, please...

He also mentions the forthcoming (in 2010) Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, Oliver Stone's sequel to his own 1987 original. "Oliver is a different filmmaker than I've experienced," he says ominously, but goes on to describe Spielberg, Stone and Michael Bay as his idols: "It's fun to work with your superheroes. These guys are Batman and Robin to me".

Mmmm, Oliver Stone in tights. Let's just leave you with that image.

Hopefully Berg will have her crushed by a big boulder on a dig in Thebes or something. And get Morgan Freeman in it. I don't know why, but it just seems right. Might detract from the fact that Indy's an old git if Morgo's in there. as for us fans so I will take a bit of the blame for the most atrocious Marraige scene I've ever seen.

RE: Shia LaBeouf talks Indy 5!
As I've stated in other threads on the Indy series, the problem with Skull and a lesser extent Crusade (because that was still awesome) is that Spielberg and co tried to link the series as though it were a continuing story, having familiar characters return, tying up relationships, etc. The Indiana Jones series would have been better if each film was a one off with fresh characters and fresh locations, all they had to do was change the maguffin (or however it's spelt). This is why I love T More

Sounds cool, people just expect too much from adventure movies these days, NO nothing is going to top Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark, but who cares? They're fun, mindless fare, blockbusters, I didn't think the The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull was that bad. Do I give a shit about what the majority said about this movie? No, I quite enjoyed it from a bit of bad CGI here and there. I loved the character of Mutt, it was Marion Ravenwood who got on my nerves a bit, and her character came int More

Looks like I came to this party late I too enjoyed Indy 4 (hugs for everyone) and I thought Harrison was great in it. It had its bad moments and sagged noticibly in some places but it also had some terrific scenes as well (the campus chase was great fun, the climax in the warehouse was fantastic). To be honest I don't see this happening, it would be too much work for Ford, Lucas, and Spielberg to get together again. However if it did then the focus needs to be specifically on India More

If they're going to do this and they probably will then I think they should bring back Willie Scott, for me, she was the most entertaining - even if its just a cameo. Perhaps Crystal Skull's biggest problem is that it quite simply didn't live up to the hype it was given and in some sense it had already failed. One thing I didn't like about Indy's latest outing was how it tried to send itself up (the gopher mound for example). The series' humour was never in spoofing. I agree with empire despite More

Indy 5: YESSSSssss!
Of course there has to be an Indy 5! They only have to lose George Lucas. If you've seen South Park then you know that he fucks things up, even Yoda! There's only one thing i want to see in this one, an that is... (now don't get mad) Indy has to die. That way nobody can touch this fantastic francise again. I hope it will be better than Indy 4, but he; even that one was better than most blockbusters these days... More

Maybe they just needed to get the stupid alien MacGuffin out of the way first
I have to say that Indy 4 (even now I can't bring myself to pronounce the title) is the worst film that Spielberg has made to date. Everything about it was well intentioned and completely misjudged. Spielberg has simply grown-up as a film-maker, where his bread and butter used to be adventure movies, now he leans towards drama, political thrillers and unrelenting sci-fi action. It was a shame to witness Spielberg - now in his 6th decade - try to impersonate his younger self. But Spielberg ra More

I just protend that Indy IV never happened. Look guys it's been over a year now and Mr. Spielberg may have learnt from past mistakes ( Aliens!!! OTT storyline !!! Bad CG!!! Fridge!!!). This could be a disaster of Indy IV proportions, or it could be the best Indy EVER!!!!! Keep a little faith for this film. More

Flogging a dead Fedora, let it lie, it could be good could it bollocks. Crystal Skull was the biggest piece of shit released last year. People knock JP2 The Lost World but it was better than that putrid sludge Lucas & Spielberg landed in May last year.

Why all the hate...?
Indiana Jones & the Crystal Skull was a decent way to finish off the saga (if it really had to be done). I reckon Shia was right in one of his interviews; it's not the style of the film that changed, it was the audience.. as for a Fifth Film? Not necessary. More
