Harrison Ford Talks About Indy 5

Posted By Mike on January 11, 2010

Our good friend Mitchell Hallock was nice enough to send over his latest report from TheRaider.net...


"Waiting for news on Indiana Jones 5 has been like the Grail Knight waiting for someone worthy to take his place but while it hasn't been 700 years, it sure feels like it! Finally we hear some news from the man himself!

Harrison Ford premiered his latest film; "Extraordinary Measures" at his friend and frequent collaborator George Lucas's Letterman Digital Arts Center at the Presido (a building the actor joked that "he helped build"). While Ford's latest has him once again portraying a doctor and man of science, many fans and visitors to this site are really interested seeing him reprise his role as another certain "doctor" from his film past. No it isn't Dr. Richard Kimble or Dr. Richard Walker, but rather the Doctor of Archeology, and Assistant Dean at Marshall College namely Henry Jones, Jr. aka Indiana Jones.

When faithful fans last saw Ford wearing the fedora it was in 2008's, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a film that was a box office success but left some Indyfans wanting more. Catching up with the famed Corellian star captain, MTVNews asked about what's next for Indiana Jones and would the star be up to the challenge; here are some excerpts from that conversation.:


"I don't think I'll do it in a wheelchair," the legendary actor grinned Friday (January 8). "George [Lucas] is working on an idea, and if it comes to a fruitful stage, all of us are very interested in making another." Ford is promising that the idea Lucas has for the fifth film is outrageous.

"Yeah," he said when reminded of a quote he gave saying that Lucas' idea was "crazy but great." Does he want to elaborate? "No," he responded.

"Some of the best ideas are crazy ideas, you know?" he conceded. "Well-wrought, well-manipulated.

"I think it would be interesting to advance the understanding of the character, as we always have had that ambition throughout the series," Ford said of what he needs to see in an "Indy 5" script before he's willing to step on the gas like Short Round in a Shanghai taxi cab. "I think it would be interesting to deepen the relationship between he and his son [Mutt, played by Shia LaBeouf] and play on that relationship. ... It's full of opportunity. The series is full of opportunity."


When talk turned to the biggest character development of "Crystal Skull" Indy's marriage to Marion Ravenwood Ford seemed amused by the concept that anyone would find scenes of their wedded life as exciting as the series' trademark stunts.


"Yeah, yeah," he deadpanned. "Really exciting.

"I think [scenes with a married Indy and Marion] would be nice grace notes," admitted the actor, who will next be seen in "Extraordinary Measures," a January 22 drama. "We'll see what we come up with.

"Karen [Allen]'s a wonderful actress, I've always enjoyed working with her," he added. "I'm hoping that there'll be a part for all of us in the next one."


To see the Man with the Hat himself talk about Indiana Jone, and finally find out who is a faster "treasure hunter" Indiana Jones or Rick O'Connell, watch the video clip and read the rest of the article here:

Thanks to IndyCast's host Ed Dolista for letting me know about this before my Google Alert did! It pays to be on the other side of the International Dateline, he's a day ahead without the use of a flux capacitor and a DeLoreon!"



Thanks Mitchell!
