We've been hearing about a new Indiana Jones movie for a while and now it's been confirmed that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas have finished the script and filming will begin this year. Harrison Ford will reprise his 80's role as the (once) sexy archaeologist. Lucas, who rode in the Rose Bowl Parade as the Grand Marshal is very excited about the fourth Indiana Jones installment. Here's more:
"It's going to be fantastic. It's going to be the best one yet," the 62-year-old filmmaker said during a break from preparing for his duties as grand marshal of Monday's Rose Parade.
The fourth chapter of the "Indiana Jones" saga, which will hit theaters in May 2008, has been in development for over a decade with several screenwriters taking a crack at the script, but it only recently gained momentum.
Lucas kept mum about the plot, but said that the latest action flick will be a "character piece" that will include "very interesting mysteries."
"I think it's going to be really cool," Lucas said.
"Mostly it's the charm of Harrison that makes it work," he said.
We can't wait to see what Lucas and Spielberg have come up with for Indy, and we're excited to see if Harrison can still work it after 17 years. To see more pics of George Lucas and other Star Wars characters in the Rose Bowl parade, just read more
