Indy 4 Like Phantom Menace?

Indy 4 Like Phantom Menace?

Lucas, Spielberg and Ford talk sequel.

August 21, 2006 - Director Steven Spielberg, creator-producer George Lucas and star Harrison Ford have all admitted that the biggest delay in getting Indiana Jones IV before cameras has been juggling their schedules.

But Lucas has now revealed that fans' expectations and story points have also played a role in the slow return of the globe-trotting archaeologist to the big-screen.

"I discovered a McGuffin," Lucas informed Empire Magazine, referring to the old Hitchcockian plot device about something that is only truly relevant because all the characters are after it and thus it advances the plot.

"I told the guys about it and they were a little dubious about it, but it's the best one we've ever found… Unfortunately, it was a little too 'connected' for the others. They were afraid of what the critics would think. They said, 'Can't we do it with a different McGuffin? Can't we do this?' and I said 'No'. So we pottered around with that for a couple of years. And then Harrison really wanted to do it and Steve said, 'Okay'. I said, 'We'll have to go back to that original MacGuffin and take out the offending parts of it and we'll still use that area of the supernatural do deal with it'."

Lucas also addressed the overwhelming anticipation that Indiana Jones IV has to live up to. "We're basically going to do The Phantom Menace. ... People's expectations are way higher than you can deliver. You could just get killed for the whole thing…We would do it for fun and just take the hit with the critics and the fans...But nobody wants to get into it unless they are really happy with it."

Indiana Jones is tentatively slated to start filming in mid-2007 for a 2008 release.

For far more of what Lucas, Spielberg and Ford had to say, check out the latest issue of Empire Magazine.

A McGuffin is just a literary device. Sort of like The Holy Grail.

Sounds like he came up with something genius, like a Jar Jar Binks for the Indy world and Ford and Spielberg said... "Um.. George... are you sure that's what you want?" And he said, "Yeah, it's brilliant, isn't it?" And they said no... eventually Ford gave in and said "OK, let's do it," followed by Spielberg agreeing with a few changes.

Indy + amazing stunts + Henry Jones + blowing up Nazis = big $$$.

We don't need another little Chinese kid acting tough. I have dubious expectations for this movie, based on Darth Lucas's comments.

He's only referring to the Phantom Menace for the hype factor. He's not going to cast some tyke as 8-year old Indiana Jones.

he already did that

Short Round was the bomb.

And yes, Harrison is too old...this is a bad idea.
