'Indiana Jones IV' Back On

28 October 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have hired a new scriptwriter to help them revive plans for a fourth Indiana Jones movie. The pair hoped to begin work on the sequel this summer but have rejected all scripts offered to them - including a screenplay by Shawshank Redemption and Green Mile writer Frank Darabont. But they are refusing to give up the project they have planned for the last decade - and hired Jeff Nathanson to try his hand at a screenplay. Nathanson is most famous for writing the Rush Hour films, but has worked with Spielberg on Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal. If Lucas and Spielberg approve, Harrison Ford will return to play the adventurous archeologist for the first time since Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade in 1989. »

Lucas Keeps Indiana Jones Fans Waiting

22 September 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood director George Lucas is refusing to rush pre-production work on the fourth installment of his Indiana Jones franchise - because he'll only set cameras rolling when the script is "really good". The eagerly awaited return of the adventurous archaeologist - played by Harrison Ford in all three previous releases - has already been delayed after Lucas reportedly rejected The Shawshank Redemption film-maker Frank Darabont's script. But the Star Wars legend insists a new writer is now on board to fine tune the plot. And Lucas and director Steven Spielberg are in no hurry to start shooting the movie, because their perfectionist approach to movie-making means the fourth Jones will only hit cinema screens when it's deemed good enough to do the series justice. He tells website, "We are working on the next script. Another writer has started working on it. We're just not going to make it unless it's really good. One of the reasons I'm able to work with Steven so well is because every time we come to a disagreement we'll yield to the other one, which means we'll come up with a compromise that considers both sides, and one person isn't determined to have his way. It's what's best for the movie." »

'Indiana Jones 4' Stalled Over Script Concerns

16 July 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The eagerly awaiting new Indiana Jones movie won't be released for another two years, because producer George Lucas isn't happy with the script. Indiana Jones 4 has been in the works for a number of years but looked likely to hit screens next year after Lucas recruited star Harrison Ford and original director Steven Spielberg for the project, and hired Frank Darabont to write a screenplay. But Lucas has sent the Shawshank Redemption writer back to the drawing board. A studio source reveals, "Indiana Jones 4 was meant to start shooting this summer but won't now be coming out until 2006. Even though Harrison and director Steven Spielberg were happy with the screenplay, Lucas still doesn't like the final act and wants a faster pace and more action." »

'Indy 4' Faces Script Delay

9 February 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Legendary film-maker George Lucas is delaying the filming of the long- awaited Indiana Jones 4 - because he's unhappy with the script. The Star Wars director, who's acting as executive producer alongside director Steven Spielberg, is allegedly dissatisfied with the screenplay handed in by Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont. And it now seems the sequel's projected 2005 release date is unlikely to be met, with shooting on the Harrison Ford-starring movie now likely to start next year instead. »
