Shia LaBeouf Talks Indy 5!

It's just the briefest sliver of a snippet, hidden in a BBC interviewto 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.
