Veteran Ford really aims to kill off Indy at the end of Indiana Jones and the Eternal Cross of Paradise? Does Doctor Henry really got a sendoff from Harrison or this is another rumor installment? Till we find out if iconic hazardous explorer would leave the whip to be picked up by his son, let us turn to the past for help.

Take this news as just a rumor as of right now, but ShowbizSpy got the scoop from an inside source close to George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg, that actor Harrison Ford (star of the Indiana Jones series) has told the creative pair that if Indiana Jones 5 ever comes to pass, that he'd like the character to die at the end. The source claims, "Harrison thinks it would be good for Indy to die and pass on his hat to his son in the next one". Also, Spielberg is said to be considering the idea of a swan song for Dr. Jones, where as Lucas is said to be strongly resisting the idea of killing off his creation. Again, this news is just a rumor as of right now, but I'm hyper at the idea of another Indiana Jones. Sure, Crystal Skull wasn't everything we'd hoped it would be (I »

Okay, this one might be a little obvious, given that Harrison Ford is pushing 70, and action heroes of such vintage are thin on the ground. But the plan with the in-the-works fifth Indiana Jones movie is for it to be Ford’s last (although last we heard, all concerned were still trying to nail the story).
Further than that, though, Showbiz Spy is reporting that Harrison Ford is keen for the character to be killed off in the fifth film. And what's more, that idea apparently isn’t being met with massive objections from Steven Spielberg at least, although George Lucas isn’t keen
It cites a source who says that “Harrison thinks it would be good for Indy to die and pass on his hat to »
The site quotes an insider on the film: “Harrison thinks it would be good for Indy to die and pass on his hat to his son in the next one…George especially is resisting the notion but Steven is considering it. Funnily enough Harrison wanted the same for Han Solo in the final Star Wars but George put an end to it. This time he doesn’t have all the say though.”
Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull was released in May 2008 to a wide critical drubbing but became a commercial success, so the idea of a sequel was always on the cards. »

Updated: Harrison Ford’s reps have denied the story, unsurprisingly. In a way though the character is kind of dead, at least for the next four years anyway as Spielberg is busy with other things.
Warning! We have entered the silly season for gossip sites to invent new stories as Hollywood shuts down for the holidays and sites like Showbiz Spy still need to fill their quota of posts. You could say I am doing the same by reciting a story that is almost sure to be false but the truth is with this post I am explaining why it might be four or five years, probably more, before we might even get a fifth Indiana Jones film, let alone one that might kill off it’s title character.
First though, here’s the rumour…

If Indiana Jones 5 ever comes to pass, it will likely be the last time Harrison Ford ever picks up the hat and whip. But the manner of that exit is important and sources tell Showbiz Spy that "Harrison thinks it would be good for Indy to die and pass on his hat to his son in the next one." That would also involve bringing back Shia Labeouf, who publicly admitted that he didn't think much of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Showbiz Spy's sources also say that while producer George Lucas is resistant to the idea, Steven Spielberg is considering it. While I would like to say that I'm okay with killing off Indy as long as it's done with dignity, Crystal Skull indicated that "dignity" really has no place in the future of this franchise. Indiana Jones will most likely die while strapped to »

 Update: Ford's representatives have denied reports t0 The Huffington Post - this rumor is false. Original story follows below: ShowbizSpy  is reporting that Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford wants his character to be killed off in the fifth installment of the action-adventure franchise. According to the report from the gossip website, Ford told George Lucas and Steven Spielberg that he wants Indy to die in the next film, officially passing the hat to his son (played by Shia Labeouf in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). “George especially is resisting the notion but Steven is considering it. Funnily enough Harrison wanted the same for Han Solo in the final Star Wars but George put an end to it. This time he doesn’t have all the say though.” Who knows if there is any truth to this report as many of the Indiana Jones rumors have turned out to be completely false, »

Update: The latest rumor surrounding the next installment of the Indiana Jones franchise,claiming the 68-year old actor petitioned to George Lucas & Steven Spielberg to hand the Indy mantle to Shia LeBeouf, has been proven false. Earlier this year, a rumor spread like wildfire that Indiana Jones 5 would center on the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. The story was quickly proven to be false, but it proved that many fans are still hungry for more Indy action; even though the last film in the series (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom on the Crystal Skull) was poorly received. Gossip site ShowbizSpy is now reporting that the last news about the yet to be titled film has lead actor Harrison Ford requesting his whip-wielding hero meet his demise: “George especially is resisting the notion but »

After the Cowboys & Aliens trailer, lets just declare it Harrison Ford Day. Today’s Daily Distraction may not be as funny as Joaquin Phoenix‘s Letterman appearance, but it is certainly inspired. Harrison Ford stumbled on Conan‘s show last night and they discussed blimps, children, shitting and dying, grumpiness, and the cashgrab that is is Indiana Jones 5. It must be seen to be believed. Check it out below and look for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Alcoholism in theaters in 2012.

Remember last week when the Log Cabin Republicans went to Justice Kennedy and asked him to vacate the stay of the order ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell? The government today filed their opposition. The White House needs to pick a side, either they want the policy gone in Congress, and get aggressive, or drop the court opposition. They can’t have it both ways. And the report that the DoD commissioned shows they don’t have to.
Well, the casting on Hot In Cleveland was ruined for me today. Sherri Shepherd is going to play the judge tasked with deciding if Elka (Betty White) is competent to stand trail. Who here feels Sherri is competent to decide anything?
Nintendo is trying to trademark “It’s on, like Donkey Kong!” I think they’re a decade late, and utterly ridiculous.

London, Nov 10 – Veteran actor Harrison Ford is set to reprise his Indiana Jones role for the fifth time.
‘If there’s something that the three of us can agree on then I’d love to do it. George is working on something but I haven’t seen anything on paper,’ contactmusic.com quoted Ford as saying.
There are basically four schools of thought when it comes to making "Indiana Jones 5." One: It's an awesome idea because "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was rad and more Indy is always a good thing. Two: It's necessary because "Crystal Skull" was sort of a letdown and Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas deserve a chance to give Dr. Jones a proper sendoff. Three: It's not advisable because "Crystal Skull" was the aforementioned letdown. Four: It's a bad idea because "Indy 4" was the perfect swan song.
Regardless of how fans feel about the prospect of "Indiana Jones 5," however, the reality is that the movie whipped up $786 million worldwide... making a fifth installment all but a foregone conclusion. Plus, the 68-year-old Ford is just itching to don Indy's iconic fedora one more time, as he told MTV News MTV News at the press junket for his new comedy "Morning Glory, »

Attendees of the Cowboys and Aliens (C&A) movie panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con were fortunate enough to not only see Harrison Ford in his very first appearance at the comic and movie geek mecca—he was dragged out to the stage by security guards and was bound in shackles, a wink and nod to fans who know that he had refused previous invitations to appear at the Con—but also to see some finished footage of the movie featuring Ford and Daniel Craig. It was evident from that screening that director Jon Favreau's goal was to make the movie adaptation of the Platinum Studios graphic novel look as much like an authentic Western as possible, even after the aliens descend to raise hell, and Ford confirmed in a recent interview with Access Hollywood that C&A is a "real cowboy movie."

Thought we’d give you a little update on a movie franchise that some of you may still be interested in (even after Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull!). Harrison Ford is currently on the promotional tour for his new movie, ‘Morning Glory’ and therefore will no doubt be asked over and over again about Indiana Jones 5.
MTV caught up with him and asked the question to which he replied:
“It’s on George’s plate, and I’m hoping he’s working hard at it, because I’d look forward to doing it again if the three of us could get together — George, [director] Steven Spielberg, myself — I’d love to do another”
He goes on to say it will be ‘better for everybody’ if it’s done ‘while I’m still alive’. Good to know that Ford is interested in doing another and that it »

Since the release of the last in the saga, there have been rumours washing around about the direction a potential fifth movie might take. There has been talk of the Bermuda Triangle becoming a big part of the story however none of the involved parties have made an official comment.
“Oh sure, I’d love to do it,” Ford told Access Hollywood. “If there’s something that the three of us can agree on then I’d love to do it.”
“George is working on something now, but I haven’t really seen anything on paper,” Ford said. “We’ve talked a little bit about it. It would be fun.”

To be fair, you could probably guess the answer a mile off, but Ford is batting it out in his usual style. Talking to Access Hollywood, he's confirmed that "George is working on something now, but I haven't really seen anything on paper." He goes on to say, "We've talked a little bit about it. It would be fun. I'd love to do it."
That has been the party line for some time now, and the truth of the project is likely to be that, until George Lucas, »
We had the chance to speak to Harrison Ford yesterday, but didn't have enough time to talk about anything else except for his "Morning Glory" movie. Luckily, CNN and AccessHollywood had enough time and made sure to ask about "Indiana Jones 5." "I'd be happy to do another one if we could all agree on it and it was something that I thought was going to work," he said. "George [Lucas] tells us that he's working on something, and both Steven [Spielberg] and I are waiting to see." Ford added that he has yet to see anything on paper, but he already has had some early discussions with the filmmakers. Lucas previously stated that he wants Shia Labeouf to take over the franchise and wants Ford to come back like Sean Connery did in the third film. Ford, however, is not ready to let go of the character quite yet. And regarding the »
Back in November 2009, DreamWorks Studios and Doubleday acquired the rights to Daniel H. Wilson's unpublished manuscript, "Robopocalypse." Dreamworks immediately put the film into development, though it wasn't until March 2010 that Drew Goddard (Cloverfield screenwriter and The Cabin in the Woods helmer) was brought on to adapt the story into a screenplay and speculation began brewing as to whether Dreamworks head honcho Steven Spielberg would direct. Well, wonder no more.
The book of which the film is based is currently slated for a June 7, 2011 release (Amazon is accepting preorders) and is described as exploring the fate of the human race following a robot uprising. Based on the book's artwork I can't help but think of I, Robot and based on the premise I »

I was just sent the following scan from the December 2, 1977 Daily Variety in which Steven Spielberg congratulates George Lucas for Star Wars, which surpassed Jaws at the domestic box-office. Released in 1975, Jaws went on to make $260 million at the box-office while Star Wars, in its first theatrical run, ended with $307 million. Future re-releases saw Star Wars end with $460 million total domestically and should Lucas's 3D release pattern hold true, that total could end even higher.
Star Wars is currently the fourth highest domestic earner of all-time behind Avatar, Titanic and The Dark Knight. Jaws is number 53, directly behind How the Grinch Stole Christmas... Oh, the horror...
As for the Lucas-Spielberg relationship, the two would work together on the Indiana Jones franchise as well as serving as producers on The Land Before Time. Will they work together again on an Indiana Jones 5? »

The Bond legend has said he will not make any more films.
However, Harrison is confident he can tempt the 80-year-old to appear as Henry Jones Sr, a role he played in 1989’s The Last Crusade.
Apparently, Harrison, 68 is trying his best to persuade Connery by sending him gifts.
“I hear Harrison has been sending over gifts to try to convince him,” the Daily Star quoted a film source as saying. (Ani) »
