With one excavation of a Lucasfilm intellectual property nearly complete, as Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes ever closer to release, is it time for the studio to move on to another?
That was the question posed to Lucasfilm producer Kathleen Kennedy, specifically with regards to the Indiana Jones franchise. A fifth installment of the pulp adventure series, which has been headlined by Harrison Ford and directed by Steven Spielberg, was confirmed as an eventuality already. Has progress been made?
“We're all trying to figure out when the right time is to step back in,” Kennedy told The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
It sounds like fans just need to be patient, and that patience will eventually be rewarded.
