After Kingdom of the Crystal Skull traumatized all of us, very deeply, there was always fear of another, of an Indian Jones, which would be more salt on an already angry wound. Happily, today I can report the latest word from longtime Indiana producer, Frank Marshall, is that ain’t gonna happen. In a recent chat with Collider Marshall said,
I say, for me, [Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is] the last hurrah. I know that yes, we talk about it, but there’s no idea, there’s no MacGuffin… Yeah, no [George Lucas] isn’t [hungry to do another Indiana Jones]. And he’s obviously passing the baton to my wife, so.
If you’re a little confused Marshall is married to new Lucasfilm co-chair, Kathleen Kennedy, so, I’m gonna guess he has a pretty solid inside scoop on whether or not Indiana Jones 5 is likely. And he says no.
I know nothing will ever be able to erase Kingdom of the Crystal Skull from our collective consciousness, but are you taking comfort in the news there will be no more?
