Indiana Jones Harrison Ford will come back as an older and wiser Indiana
Hollywood.Com was able to catch up to George Lucas in a bar and got him to spill a surprising amount of details on upcoming projects [must be the alcohol], including new details on Indiana Jones 4.

Indiana Jones 4 Updates

Lucas actually had a good amount to say about the next Indiana Jones film. Besides admitting that the script is now COMPLETE, he also went on to state Harrison Ford's involvement among other things. Here is a snippet from the interview with Hollywood and George Lucas:

And what's the status of the new Indiana Jones?

Lucas: "I talked to Steven while I was in Hawaii, and he said the script is done and he was going to send it to me when I got back, which was yesterday. It isn't on my desk today and he's coming up tomorrow to see Star Wars, so I assume he'll bring it with him."

You guys do well when you collaborate in Hawaii. Things tend to work out there.

Lucas: "Yeah. We're frantically trying to finish War of the Worlds at the same time. We'll see. I look forward to reading it and seeing if it's what we laid out in the first place. You never know."

Is there anything we can reveal about it?

Lucas: "It'"

You had an idea of what was planned before they wrote the script?

Lucas: "Oh yeah. I came up with this idea doing Young Indy, which has got to be about seven or eight years ago, and we've been through a number of scripts--six or eight scripts. Six scripts, two rewrites. So it's been down the path. There were certain aspects of it that Steven and Harrison [Ford] didn't like, and so we changed those, and then we laid out a version and it didn't come out the way it was supposed to, and then we did another version and it didn't come out, so we've just been going through this development hell, which happens once in a while. We'll see. When it comes out, it'll be different. Different, but the same."

And Harrison's staying in shape all this time, right, in case he has to take his shirt off?

Lucas: "No, he's plays an older person in this."
