Though we predicted (a year ago) that filming would be underway for Indiana Jones 4 by now, George Lucas keeps the fans drooling with minor updates here and there. Though most of the director's updates are about the lagging script, Lucas hints on the new approach towards Indy and how he isn't as crazy as he used to be.
George Lucas on Indy 4
MTV recently caught up with George Lucas and were able to get a few new details for Indiana Jones 4 out of him. Though none of the details were too specific, they do hint on where the film is heading.
Contrary to how Hollywood usually hypes its blockbusters, the writer/producer says Indiana Jones' next adventure actually won't be any louder, bigger or faster than his last one. In fact, if Lucas gets his way (hint: he usually does), the Jones sequel will prize dialogue over decibels.
And Lucas is, if nothing else, reliably vague. He's not yet ready to give up the treasure trove of what lurks in the plot for the first "Indiana Jones" movie since 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," except to say the script is finally done and the flick will "probably" start shooting next year.
Lucas goes on to point out that loud action is not where it's at anymore by citing Mission: Impossible III and Tom Cruise as his reference; ouch. Though there have been incredible delays, Lucas is still excited about the latest installment of Indiana Jones and thinks that the film has the proper doses of action, humor and all that 'works like crazy.'
