More than a year after "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was screened in theaters around the world, its follow-up "Indiana Jones V" begins to take shape. "The story for the new Indiana Jones is in the process of taking form," star Harrison Ford told France's Le Figaro newspaper.
Keeping his lips tightly sealed on the possible plot, Ford stated that he, director Steven Spielberg and creator George Lucas have "agreed on what the fifth adventure will concern," adding "George is actively at work". Addressing the matter at the Deauville Film Festival where he was honored with a lifetime achievement award, the 67-year-old insisted, "If the script is good, I'll be very happy to put the costume on again."
Back in June, Ford's co-star in "Crystal Skull", Shia LaBeouf, has let it slip during an interview with BBC News that Spielberg has cracked the story for "Indy 5". His remark was soon after supported by producer Frank Marshall who came out with a sort of confirmation for the fifth installment. To Empire Online, he said that the project is approaching a script development stage. He also wrote on his Twitter page, "The story for Indy5 is progressing. It is still in the research phase."
"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" sees Indy falling into 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 in May 2008, the flick has collected $786.6 million worldwide.
