Before "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" stormed the theaters on May 22, the creator of the iconic archeology professor, George Lucas, seemed to be confident with the idea of centering the next "Indiana Jones" movie on Mutt Williams' character. However, months following the film's release, he offers a conflicting concept for "Indiana Jones V".

Contrary to his previous words, the man behind the famous "Star Wars" saga now stated that the next "Indiana Jones" will still see the whip-cracking adventurer as the lead character. To MTV News at the press day for "Star Wars: The Clone Wars", the 64-year-old stressed, "Indiana Jones is Indiana Jones. Harrison Ford IS Indiana Jones."

On the possibility of Shia LaBeouf's character headlining the fifth movie, Lucas proposed that if there will be a movie about the son of Jones, it will be a different one. "If it was Mutt Williams it would be 'Mutt Williams and the Search for Elvis' or something."

Talking further about "Indy 5", he confessed that he and his team are still researching for the possible storyline. "We ARE looking for something for him to go after. They are very hard to find," so he claimed. "It's like archeology. It takes a huge amount of research to come up with something that will fit."

In "the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull", Indy falls in another adventure when he is asked by Mutt to solve a letter sent by his mother and Indy's former lover, Marion Ravenwood. It turns out that the encoded message leads them to the finding of the Crystal Skull of Akator which is also being searched by Russian agents. Since its debut, the flick has collected $744.4 million worldwide.

That sucks cuz I liked the 4th movie(especially the part where indie finds out about mutt being his son). Also, I think I wood only watch it if mutt was in it. Shia is hot and does so well in that movie.

I enjoyed most of Indy 4; it did have its akward scenes (heroic monkeys, fake CGI alien) but I would love to see them make another. My only regret is that, as I read from another website, Lucas is trying to push Jones into a totally new type of style while Steven would like to make a movie more reminiscent of the older Jones. I personally would like to see a return to form in 5, but whatever course they take, let's hope it's as good as can be because Indiana Jones hasn't tanked yet!

That would be really cool, but I just hope they bring Shia back in the 5th movie at least. It wouldn't have to revolve around him, but it would be nice to have him back!

Interesting to hear, since they set it up so well to pass on to him. I want them to use one of the Indy books that's been released as a high level concept- let's have Indy get involved with some Druids at Stonehenge. (As a Druid, I'd love this! =P) Looking forward to 5- I loved 4, just like I loved 1-3.
