Harrison Ford On INDY 5: "I'll Be Very Happy To Put The Costume On Again"!

Beaks here...

Though Shia LaBeouf and producer Frank Marshall have gone on record about a fifth installment in the INDIANA JONES franchise (with talk of Spielberg having "cracked the story"), I was inclined to take their comments as a whole lot of wishful thinking until we heard something definitive from one of the big three. Well, rejoice. It's for real. Here's Harrison Ford talking to the French newspaper Le Figaro about the status of INDY 5:
"The story for the new Indiana Jones is in the process of taking form. Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and myself are agreed on what the fifth adventure will concern, and George is actively at work. If the script is good, I'll be very happy to put the costume on again."
So Spielberg cracked the story, and now George is "actively at work". Does this mean George is going solo as a screenwriter? I sure hope so. I also hope Spielberg's positive experience with performance capture on TINTIN means we'll get our first Indiana Jones movie without a single practical location. This would be like a dream come true. Also, since the story will most likely be set in the early 1960s, I think I speak for Indy fans everywhere when I utter these two words: Profumo scandal. Thanks to AICN reader "The Moseph" for passing this along.
