With a new Indiana Jones movie in development, everybody is wondering what Steven Spielberg is planning for the aging archaeologist to do. While we don’t know those answers yet, there is one thing we know we won’t be seeing. Steven Spielberg says that the one thing that won’t happen is the death of Indiana Jones.
Spielberg is currently on a press tour for ‘The BFG’ and when asked about Indy 5, the director said he will not reveal any plot details, which, for what it’s worth, seems to imply that such details exist, but he did tell the reporters one thing which is actually quite valuable.
The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it.
While we wouldn’t necessarily have expected the death of Indiana Jones in the new movie, it’s still good to know it won’t be happening. One of the many things wrong with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was the film’s attempt to set up a new actor as an heir apparent for Indy. The fact that said actor was Shia LeBeouf didn’t help matters.
In addition to the return of Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg, the only other thing we know for sure is that John Williams will be back to score the film.
