Ever since the release of 2008′s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, there have been rumors regarding a fifth installment in the franchise. George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Shia Labeouf, and the man himself Harrison Ford are all up for it, it’s just a matter of finding the right story to explore. According to Ford, his idea for the next film might not be welcomed by fans. It takes Jones on a somewhat fatal journey…
Ford thinks that it would be great to kill off Indiana Jones in the next sequel but to say that he’s being met with some reservation is an understatement. According to ShowbizSpy Ford said,
“George especially is resisting the notion but Steven is considering it. Funnily enough Harrison wanted the same for Han Solo in the final Star Wars but George put an end to it. This time he doesn’t have all the say though.”
What’s with Ford always wanting to get rid of his characters? But in all honesty Han Solo didn’t have the best ending in the original Star Wars trilogy so he somewhat got what he wanted. If they did give Ford the axe that would leave the door open for Mutt Williams to take over where his dad left off and people aren’t really up for that. Williams wasn’t exactly loved by all when he first came on the scene.
What do you think of Ford’s idea of killing off Indy?
