New INDIANA JONES Film At Least “Two Or Three” Years Away

RaidersoftheLostArk

Last week, Disney made the surprise announcement that they had acquired the distribution rights to the Indiana Jones franchise from Paramount Pictures. But don’t expect Disney, who purchased the Harrison Ford-starring Indiana Jones franchise producers Lucasfilm last year, to start in on a fifth cinematic adventure featuring the globe-trotting archaeologist/adventurer.

Speaking with Variety, Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn stated that they were a few years off from getting moving on a new Indiana Jones film.

We haven’t done anything. We don’t have a story. We need a story.

With Lucasfilm and Disney concentrating on their one-Star Wars-film-a-year schedule, it is probably not too surprising that this is not a priority. However, with Ford pushing 71, they probably don’t have much room for delay.

One thing that went unaddressed was the rumor as to whether Ford’s return to the Star Wars franchise was happening in exchange for a new Indiana Jones film.

I just bought the Raiders of the Lost Ark poet fedora replica. I’ll have to post a picture. Very tall crown, wide bent brim. Not that Disney wannabe fedora. I’ve been wearing it daily thanks to my geek side.
