Oh holy shit are we really doing this. JoBlo says...
Star Shia LaBeouf says they've already got a storyline mapped out for the potential project. Says LaBeouf, "I got called into Steven's office and he pitched a little bit to me and it sounds crazy, it sounds really cool." LaBeouf refused to elaborate on what the pitch for INDIANA JONES 5 involved but he added that "they're writing the script right now."
Well at least George Lucas hasn't been mentioned yet. He was famously intrusive when making Indiana Jones 4, the result of which was a complete piece of shit.
Everyone pretty much agrees that the whole "Star Wars" thing was a fluke for Lucas. "Empire Strikes Back" is the only great one, and that's the only one he didn't write or direct, and the one he calls the worst of the six movies.
The first one was good, the second one was amazing, and the rest make no sense whatsoever. Most of "Return of the Jedi" is spent trying to disable a satellite dish on Endor that provides the force field for the new Death Star, but the god damn thing is right there, sticking up out of the trees. Just shoot it! You don't even need radar, they don't even hide it you can see it, just shoo-NO! NOOO, don't send Luke, Han and Leia to shut it down by hand! That's like you're top three people! JESUS CHRIST, YOU HAVE LIKE 8 MILLION SPACESHIPS, IT'S THE NUMBER ONE THING YOU'RE GOOD AT, AND THAT DISH IS 40 STORIES HIGH, JUST SHOOT IT! I SWEAR TO GOD IF YOU BLOW IT UP IT WILL STOP WORKING!
