The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Kathleen Kennedy about Star Wars: The Force Awakens and what George Lucas thinks of the film. In the article they mention a little bit of Indiana Jones 5 news. I like this piece particularly because it shows us what the boss thinks about the prospect of another Indy film are:
Where are you with Indiana Jones 5?
We’re all trying to figure out when the right time is to step back in. Harrison really wants to do it; Steven really wants to do it. We’ve kicked around a couple of story ideas, but beyond that, I don’t know yet. I think there will be one, we’ll certainly move forward with Indy. But right now, everybody’s just focused on Star Wars.
The fact Kennedy thinks there will be one and that she says they’ll certainly move forward with Indy are great signs. With Kennedy wanting to make one, Spielberg and Ford wanting to do one, it seems like there isn’t much standing in the way.
