Shia LaBeouf has confirmed that Indy V is off the ground, stating in a recent interview that ‘Steven just said that he cracked the story on it, and I think they’re gearing that up’.
‘Steven’ obviously being that Spielberg fellow, who directed the last year’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, in which LaBeouf starred as Mutt Williams, son of the eponymous archaeologist.
LaBeouf’s character has been rumored to be taking over the reigns of the family business, namely bothering Commie-Nazis, though this is the first we’ve heard about a sequel.
Speaking to the BBC in an interview for the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, LaBeouf gave no more details about the angle of the story Speilberg has in mind, but in stating that he ‘cracked it’, suggests that they have found the right direction for the film, but what that means for Harrison Ford and fans of the franchise only time will tell.
Also asked about working with Oliver Stone on the Wall Street sequel, the actor mentioned that the current title is Money Never Sleeps and that Stone is ‘different to anything I’ve experienced’.
Anyway. Excited about the prospect of more Indy? Not so excited?
