No Time for Love, Doctor Jones!


Box Office Mojo is reporting that everyone's favorite archaeologist/ophidiophobe (look it up) is making his way to the big screen much sooner than we all thought. The site lists Indiana Jones IV as having a May 22, 2008 release date. Interesting news, seeing how Steven Spielberg and George Lucas just agreed on a script fairly recently.

CHUD (Cinematic Happenings Under Development) is confident that this release date is legitimate, citing a source at spielbergfilms.com.

There are a lot of crazy rumors flying around the Interweb regarding this film, most recently that Indy's whip is going to be computer animated due to safety reasons. I'd take these all with a grain of salt. The combination of Harrison, George, and Steven hasn't let us down in the past and I think we should all have a little faith. It's taken forever to get this project rolling, and now that it's picking up momentum next summer can't come fast enough. They have top men working on it....top....men. And if you didn't catch that Raiders reference, then why are you still reading?

You'll notice that I've made zero comments about Ford's age. To me, as long as the film acknowledges that Indy's older and doesn't have him doing CGI cartwheels while fighting kung-fu Nazis, the film should work.

But what do I know? I once got lost in my own museum.
