Is Disney Planning a Fifth Installment of Indiana Jones?
With so many franchises getting a reboot these days it seems that it should only be a matter of time before we get to see everyone’s favorite adventurist on the silver screen once again. And with Disney acquiring LucasFilms in 2012, the possibility of a new Indy film grew even more. There have been many rumors going around over the past few years about possible recasting and where the story would go from the last installment. And now that the studio has gotten a hold on what they will be doing with the Star Wars reboot, it may finally be time to focus on a brand new Indiana Jones film.
This CBS News article details The CEO of Disney’s recent announcement that they would love to make a new Indiana Jones film, but they are pacing themselves right now. With three Star Wars films coming up and several standalone movies slated to be released involving major characters such as Boba Fett, and a spinoff centered on the childhood of Han Solo, it is evident that Disney currently has a full plate as far as LucasFilms go. While that means that Indy may have to sit on the back-burner for the time being, it is evident that a fifth Indiana Jones film is in the works.
