Indiana Jones to Return
Spielberg and Ford confirm IJ4


January 22nd, 2002

  USA - Thanks to TheRaider.net for finding these breaking news from Roger Friedman reporting for FoxNews.com from the Golden Globes Award party 2002:

»At the end of a wild night of partying and celebrating for the 2002 Golden Globes, I had the rare opportunity of talking with Steven Spielberg, Kate Capshaw and Harrison Ford. They were sitting together in a small booth in the basement of Trader Vic's at the Beverly Hilton Hotel at the combined party thrown by DreamWorks, USA Films and Universal Pictures.

This threesome is pretty much it in Hollywood. After all, between Spielberg and Ford they've made some of the highest grossing and best loved films of all time. Capshaw, who's Mrs. Spielberg, co-starred with Ford in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

So what's the story, I wanted to know with this trio finally in one place, and relaxed enough to talk, will we ever see Indiana Jones 4?

"Yes," they all said, and confirmed that once Spielberg films Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, IJ4 will be his priority.«

Finally, a confirmation for Indiana Jones 4! What does the given information mean: Catch me if you can is in production now, give release date is December 2002 (IMDb). This could mean a release for IJ4 in summer 2003 would be possible.

»"We have a title, but we're not ready to announce it," Spielberg said.«

Please, please "Choose wisely!" - and don't ask George Lucas for help, he does a little bad with titles lately...

»"I will give you one clue, though. Kate [Capshaw] is in it." I asked if he meant that Capshaw's character would appear via flashbacks, and he replied: "No. She'll be in the present." «

Now this is going to be interesting and brings up the rumor related question if Marions will return, too.

»Ford, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award, said he's ready to take on this last chapter. "It was always about getting the right script, and now we have it," he said.«
