Lucasfilm Ltd. has submitted six possible titles for the forthcoming Indian Jones IV to the Motion Picture Association of America for Registration. The report shows searches for titles similar to the ones be proposed by Lucasfilm for the upcoming film. If no one files any objections by the close of business August 24, 2007, Lucasfilm will have free reign to use any of the titles for Indy IV.
According to a copy of the report leaked to SlashFilm, the possible titles are-
- Indiana Jones and the City of Gods
- Indiana Jones and the Destroyer of Worlds
- Indiana Jones and the Fourth Corner of the Earth
- Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
- Indiana Jones and the Lost City of Gold
- Indiana Jones and the Quest for the Covenant
Interestingly, all six titles play into some of the various, oft-time conflicting, rumors that have been circulating about the film. The City Of Gods title has been long been attached to the film in internet rumors, while Lost City Of Gold and Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull seem to relate to other potential plot lines that have made the internet rounds. Quest For The Covenant seems to be related to some speculation that the film would revolve around Indy chasing down the Ark of the Covenant again. Destroyer Of Worlds and Fourth Corner Of The Earth are the odd men out, though Destroyer does recall the Hindu god Shiva.
Or it could be that Lucasfilm is just playing to all the internet rumors flying out there, disguising the one true title they want to use among others designed to reinforce which ever set of rumors you want to believe.
Hopefully, we’ll find out some time before Indy IV’s premier next May.
