Indy Jones 5 News
Steven Spielberg: "You know something, I get asked the question more than any other question. It's up to George Lucas. He, when George comes to me and calls me on the phone and says 'I've got the story,' then I'm his man. But I'm waiting for him to make that phone call. That hasn't happened yet."
Kathleen Kennedy: "Nothing. Not because I don’t want to tell you anything, but we genuinely do not have a script on either one, so we’re not close. We definitely want to do Jurassic 4, I don’t know where we stand with Indy to be honest. I mean if, (inhales) our feeling is when a good story comes along we’re always game, so we'll see."
George Lucas: "I’m retiring. I’m moving away from the business, from the company, from all this kind of stuff." He was careful to leave himself an out clause for a fifth Indiana Jones film.
"Steven is a born director, which is why he’s such a genius. He’s truly a cinematic genius. But he’s like a kid with a video game. It’s like: 'C’mon, we’re going. We’re leaving now.' Death comes... And then Steven goes: 'I got one more game! I got one more game!' One day, they’re just going to unplug it and say, 'You’ve got to go home now.'"
Rick McCallum: "George is contemplating the idea of taking a little bit of time off right now. He’s got Clone Wars which he’s still doing, he’s got another season or two seasons of Clone Wars and he’s also working on an animated film which has nothing to do with Star Wars. So, he’s got his plate kind of full, but he’s going to take a little break after Red Tails and figure out what it is.
"He got to be able to do everything that he actually wanted to do. Now, with this completed, a little bit of rest, now I think he can set upon the next chapter of his life and figure out, “Okay, do I have a new set of films, a new kind of films that I want to do?” And that’s what we hope and wait anxiously to hear from him on."
