Karen Allen, the Marion Ravenwood in two 'Indy' movies, opens up about what she knows about the next film installment of the iconic archeology professor.
"Indiana Jones V" is more likely far from being developed. While promoting for the DVD/Blu-ray release of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" on September 17, Karen Allen slammed down the idea that another "Indiana Jones" film has been officially discussed.
Quoted by Sci Fi Wire, the actress who portrays Indy's love interest Marion Ravenwood gushed, "Not really. No. I mean, except for fans and, you know, I've had a lot of people say, 'Is there going to be another one?' But no, not officially." She then threw back the question to the press asking, "Do you know something I don't?"
Despite dishing out that the possibility on next "Indy" sequel has been raised, Allen confessed that she would love to join the franchise if future installment is indeed being pushed forward. "I would say [I'm] very open to it," she said. "You know, this was a delightful experience, and, yeah. I would welcome it."
On the last "Indiana Jones" flick released, "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" teamed up once again director Steven Spielberg with the franchise's star Harrison Ford in the latest daring adventure faced by the whip-cracking adventurer. Supported by a line of cast ensemble, including Allen, Shia LaBeouf and Cate Blanchett, it debuted first on the box office making nearly $127 million on its first four-day screenings and went on to collect $783.3 million worldwide.
