Indy IV Updates
In a report re-posted by theindyexperience,
Kathleen Kennedy answers a bunch of questions about the stalled Indiana
Jones 4 script, whether or not Harrison Ford is aged for the Indy role,
and the exact time period for the film. Check out some of the Indy Q&A
Kennedy acknowledges that previous reports of Nathanson’s script being “approved” by Indy producer George Lucas and director Spielberg were true, but that doesn’t quite mean what it sounds like it does.
“It’s one thing to approve something, it’s another thing to say it’s greenlit and we’re shooting it. So we’re just in that sort of phase of finessing,” she says, before responding to a question about whether or not star Harrison Ford is too old for the part these days. “No, I don’t think so. Certainly we’re not writing the script as though he’s 20 years old. You know, Sean Connery spent a lot of time in the Bond role and whatnot. I think it’s great that we can go make another Indiana Jones movie and Indy can be a little older. I think playing with that is a good thing.”
So it’ll take place in the ’50s then?
“Ahhhh, yeah. The late ’40s.”
