Might as well reboot the series or insert a story after three with a new actor other than Ford. He's simply too old to reprise the role.

Fine, Channing Tatum as Indy. Sayid from Lost as Sallah and Lawrence Fishbourne as Marcus. Book it, done

They should do a TV series. Maybe based on another period of his life. Like when he was young.

/And then make a movie about when he and his brother fought criminals in the boondocks of Boston

The young Indy shows weren't half bad, but won't be a movie franchise.  That's for TV.

Rebooting the series would be silly.  They'd have to do like James Bond.  Insert a new actor with new stories.

Setting it in a different time period would be difficult.  in the 30s/40s, he's got the Nazis as villains.  In the 50s, it would be who, the Soviets?  In the 60s and forward, you're in James Bond territory or worse, Austin Powers.

Everyone just sort of accepted that James Bond remained about 40 years old from the mid-60s until it was finally rebooted in Casino Royale. I don't think that would work with Indy. And I don't think people would accept a new actor as Indy like they did with Bond. Despite the obvious comparisons, there's a lot of reasons why taking the same approach with Bond as with Indy wouldn't work.

But they'll do it anyway so Disney, before you cast Englebert CabbagePatch or whoever his name is, let Ford do one more. Don't let him go out like Brosnan's last Bond, with a sub-par final film.

I always liked the theory that it was different guys who had the job/role of 007, who took on the name of James Bond.  Skyfall blew that up.

There are plenty of instances where one Bond would reference something that happened in an earlier movie with an earlier Bond. That doesn't really work. Unless it's a Doctor Who type thing....

Adding a fourth movie to the franchise would be cool, but Indy is getting up there in age.   I just hope they don't do something stupid, like add aliens in the movie.  That would suck and be way to cheesy.

They'll probably give us never ending  Mutt Williams movies. It could work, if they used someone other than LaBeouf to play Mutt. In all fairness he did try, but he was pretty painful to watch. What worked in the Transformer series didn't work as well in the IJ series.

I liked Indy 4, except for LaBeouf. He strikes me as a good guy and tries hard but he just simply sucks as an actor - something about him simply did not look natural. Harrison Ford as Indy looked believable, hell half the characters in indy did except for LaBeouf.
dunno why when it first came out most of the indy fans hated the film, I liked it for its originality, sci-fi with classic Indy type movie. Then again I didn't have high expectations either, being I grew up watching each of the first 3 films probably a hundred times.

Sooo, Henry Jones as a the adult, taking young Indy to exotic locations? I know they did a crappy "young indy" series once upon a time, but rework the whole premise and you might get something workable.

Burn Crystal Skull. Eradicate all traces of it, banish it from continuity and commission a script for a film that takes place after Last Crusade with another actor - not a reboot, but James Bond type recasting. There's a lot of entertaining stories that could be told with that character and with the right creative team, you could have a very lucrative, long running franchise.

I just want more stories in that setting and with that character. Recast or do a Jeff Bridges/Tron thing, but make it damn entertaining!

SquiggsIN: I really think River Phoenix could've played Indy.


He did. Or is that the joke?
 
2013-12-07 03:04:03 AM  
OK, so Indy was born about 1899 or so ... here's a list of possible baddies ...

In the 20s, you could have gangsters, rival treasure hunters, crooked gilded age businessmen, occultists ... because Temple of Doom was the earliest of the Indiana Jones films and had Dr. Jones digging up an emperor's urn for a gangster, I picture Indy being more in Belloq's mold before deciding a more noble path in acquiring artifacts. Hell, an Indiana Jones movie set in the 20s with him facing off against Belloq might work.

In the 30s, Nazis, gangsters, Hoover's FBI, Italian Fascists, Kuomintang, Imperial Japanese forces ...

In the WW2-era 40s, Indy vs. the Axis Powers ...

From 1946-to the 60s, the Soviets, Red Chinese, on-the-run Nazis, Hoover, and the occult (another peak in the US postwar, see some bad science-fiction writer that made up a religion as an example), styled or actual 3rd-world leaders not liking a westerner poking around their ancient treasures (Nasser, the Shah of Iran, Latin American dictatorships), and corporations.

If he based Jack Sparrow on Keith Richards, and Willy Wonka on Michael Jackson, then if he based his Indiana Jones on Harrison Ford, it might work.  Kinda.  Sorta.

Insiders also added that while George Lucas has sold his stake in Lucasfilm to Disney, he still may have a part in developing the story like he and Spielberg had done in the past.


F*ck...

You're opinion about what today's movie-gonig audience will accept gives the idiot masses far to much credit.

I liked Crystal Skull. It may never be viewed as the pinnacle in the franchise, but it doesn't deserve as much shiat as it gets.

I liked the fact that it acknowledged how much Harrison Ford had changed since Last Crusade, instead of trying to pretend he was still that same man. After all, "It's not the years, it's the mileage."

Or, that particular James Bond just happened to BE named James Bond. The theory still holds that way.

Original? The film shamelessly cribbed from the Brendan Fraiser Mummy films, which were already pale imitations of Indiana Jones. It was a lazy, cobbled together mess with none of the style and cleverness of the first three. It felt like a bad TV reunion movie written by people who didn't know the character, not a major theatrical release made by the original creative team.

That would be awesome. They're really pushing the whole Disney Princess thing at the parks now, little outfits you can force on your little girl who really just wants to go on the rides. So next to Snow White, Cinderella and Ariel they can ad Slave Girl Leia.
