The Walt Disney Company agreed to acquire Lucasfilm, granting Disney ownership rights to the Indiana Jones and Star Wars franchises. However, although Disney owns the intellectual property, Disney CEO Bob Iger says that Indiana Jones was not initially factored to its equation during the deal, as Paramount Pictures continues to retain certain rights to future film installments of Indiana Jones. However in February of 2013
god if there is another Indiana Jones movie I will not go see it no matter what people say.Its no wonder Connery did not come out of retirement to reprise that role,he had enpugh common sense to see it was such a chessy and dumb script.too bad Ford didnt have that common sense. Ford made the same mistake stallone did with the rocky movies.
Instead of wisely leaving it as a trilogy,stallone continued the franchise with the god awful rocky 4 and it got even worse with rocky 5.Ford also should have left it as a trilogy and spared us that god awful Indy 4.If he made another one,i would lose what little respect I have left for Ford which isnt much since he went ahead and did Indy 4.
stallone lost all his respect with most rocky fans when he went ahead and did rocky 4 just for the money .Ford seems to be following the same path he went.
Well, the idea was always that Lucas, Ford and Spielberg unanimously had to agree on a sequel. That was sort of the deal between them. If one drops out, the movie doesn't get made. So Lucas does not have the only say about continuing the franchise WITH Ford AND Spielberg. He could reboot the franchise of course with new actors and director.
well kinda.thats a little different since it was back in the 80's with rocky 4 that he was clearly in it just for the money so that was no surprise with him that he did rocky 4 where Ford always has shown he wasnt doing movie just for the money till Indy 4.Plus all those movies started getting stupid when they started making the movies with the subtile Rambo in them with the first sequal to first blood so a little differenct case there.
btw,if rumors are true,i wouldnt say money since he took on a good role and takled a good movie with 42 recently-one of his best flicks ever i would say and easily his best acting job showing what a versatile actor he is to wit,but it seems like he is really missing doing the star wars films since apparantly if rumors are true,he is going to reprise his role as Han Solo in the planned star wars 7. Remember Lucas always had a plan to make 9 films so looks like its happening.lol.
