'Indiana Jones 4' Could Shoot This Summer

Steven Spielberg has committed to helming Indiana Jones 4 with Harrison Ford once again cracking the whip, says Variety.

Frank Darabont is penning the script for the next outing, and Spielberg is still awaiting a final draft. The project has been in development for some time, with all of the franchise's major players said to be satisfied with the direction of the picture so far.

Ford, who will next appear in Revolution Studios' action comedy Hollywood Homicide this summer opposite Josh Hartnett, appears to have his schedule free for 'Indiana Jones 4', should it shoot earlier than planned.

Paramount currently has the pic scheduled for summer 2005, but the studio wouldn't hesitate for the chance to get the tentpole earlier than planned.

Discussions have already been had to move up the picture's production by a year, with 'Indiana Jones 4' possibly going before the cameras this summer, making the picture available for 2004.
