It seems like only yesterday when Lucas had stated
that the script for Indiana
Jones IV was complete and ready to go. But no, though
the first draft got a thumbs up from some of the key players, Lucas felt
that he had to work with writer, Jeff Nathanson, a little bit to help give
the finalized version the 'Lucas touch.'
The first announcement claimed that we'd have a finished script by the end
of summer. Obviously, this time has come to pass. So now when can we expect
a script and is there any chance they could crank a film for summer of 2006?
Indy 4 Script will Make 2005
According to theindyexperience,
we have a couple months, at most, until the final draft of the Indiana
Jones IV screenplay will be released:
The Daily Targum featured an interview with Producer Rick McCallum who talked about the live-action Star Wars TV show and gave an update on the Indiana Jones 4 screenplay that George Lucas is currently working on:
And then there's everyone's favorite hat-wearing
archaeologist. "George is finalizing the script on Indiana Jones Part 4,"
McCallum says, "which should be done within the year." It's a good thing
ILM has experience animating dinosaurs, because if Harrison Ford dies it
shouldn't be that hard for "George" to cut him in.
Indiana Jones 4 still has an expected release date of summer 2006,
a date that will probably change due to the delayed release of the script.
