The actor discusses the possibility of a fifth film
Am I alone when I say that I was not really crazy about ' Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'? I think if I had to pin-point exactly what it is I did not like about the film, it has to be Shia LeBeouf. When I think of Indiana Jones, I reminisce about the adventures he had in the original trilogy, so hearing about a fifth installment leaves me less than thrilled. MTV recently caught up with Harrison Ford and asked him about the chances of there being an upcoming film, and Ford stated he would be interested in reprising his role while he still does not need a wheelchair to do it.
MTV: If and when there is another Indiana Jones movie, would you like to hop back into a wheelchair to do it?
Harrison Ford: "No, I don't think I would do it in a wheelchair. George [Lucas] is working on an idea, if it comes to a fruitful stage, all of us are interested in making another.
MTV: You've said in a past interview that George's idea was crazy, but great. Can you elaborate on that?"
HF: "Yeah. No. Some of the best ideas are crazy ideas.
MTV: What's left to be done?"
HF: "Well I think it would be interesting to deepen the relationship between he and his son and to play on that relationship....the series is full of opportunity."
If they are going to make another Indiana Jones film, I wish they would tell his "lost stories," focusing on the character's untold adventures rather than bringing Shia into yet another George Lucas production. Did you see 'Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'? Would you be interested in seeing another Indiana Jones movie, or are you a pessimist like I am and feel like there is nothing left to be done in relation to the classic series?
