Shia LaBeouf Will Be In Indiana Jones 5 And Lucas Has Another Crazy Idea
How do you remedy an Indiana Jones movie widely criticized for jumping the shark with an absolutely ridiculous plot? Apparently if you’re George Lucas, you respond by making the sequel just as ridiculous.
Lucas and Spielberg keep insisting that they’re going to make an Indiana Jones 5 whether people want it or not, and it sounds like they’re dead set on keeping at least some of the stuff people hated from Indy 4 as well. For instance, Shia LaBeouf. He’s not going anywhere. Sounds like he’ll be back in the next movie as Mutt because he tells ShowBizSpy that he’s talking to Spielberg about the script.
Shia says, “They’re script writing right now… I got called into Steven’s office and he pitched a little bit to me and it sounds crazy, it sounds really cool.” So not only are they keeping Mutt, a character generally loathed, Lucas has come up with yet another “crazy” idea to wrap his movie around.
The last movie was so hated it spawned a South Park episode equating it to rape and a new slang term for bad filmmaking. Now “nuked the fridge” is a common way to describe a bad movie (it’s even a toy), and it’s all thanks to George Lucas’s last crazy idea for Indy. So he's coming up with another crazy idea. I'm starting to suspect George doesn't understand the difference between positive and negative attention.
