I’ve written an Indiana Jones script that, IMHO, would not only fit into the over all arch of the series but start a whole new successful franchise.
It’s exactly what the series needs at this point. Harrison Ford is, and always will be, Indiana Jones. It might as well be engraved on his tombstone when he passes away. (Which will be never because he’s too much of a badass). But, sadly, he is reaching an age where I don’t think he’ll be able to play that kind of a role anymore, especially now that Star Wars Episode VII is going to be starting production.
I think that the series has so much potential if put into the right hands. The character itself means so much to me that I would be uneasy about a reboot, just like the rest of the filmmaking world, but, inevitably, it will happen. Maybe not soon, but it WILL happen. Given time, they will realize what the commodity of the franchise name means. And it means money. Money that they aren’t making.
I would love to hear about what everyone things about the idea of a rebooted Indiana Jones movie franchise and what it would mean to you and to the filmmaking community at large.
