Is a YOUNG INDIANA JONES movie in the works'''

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with an interesting rumor... I'll let you read the heads up we got below, but I have some thoughts on it below, so stick around!

I work BLEEP at an international software company, and learned some news that might be of interest to you. At a recent all-hands meeting, we discussed what we're working on in the coming year. During the meeting, we learned that we will develop for LucasArts a series of new Young Indiana Jones learning games set from 1916-1919 that will be released to coincide with a 2007 Young Indiana Jones movie.

We were told that the information about the movie came straight from George Lucas to one of our executives.

This is the first I'd heard of this movie, so I thought I'd share.

If you use this, call me Spence.

Now there are a few things about this I'd like to talk about... It's quite possible that Lucas is wanting to launch a YOUNG INDY movie, but I think it's probably more likely that he'd want this series of learning games as support for the long in the pipe-line INDIANA JONES 4. I've heard nothing solid (yet) about INDY 4, but there are some considerable rumblings within Paramount that the stars might be aligning, the chambers in the giant lock finally falling into place and that we may indeed be seeing INDIANA JONES 4 going into official production.

If that is true, then it is entirely possible that this confirms INDY 4 for a 2007 release. If the above rumor is 100% on the mark and this isn't about INDY 4, then we can look forward to a YOUNG INDY movie. Either way, we win... Or at least us that still have fond memories of the YOUNG INDIANA JONES tv series do. What do you folks think of all this?
