The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull Writer to Pen Indiana Jones 5March 21st, 2016
Yes, despite the mixed reviews of the last Indiana Jones movie, Steven Spielberg has hired writer David Koepp yet again to pen the script for the as yet untitled Indiana Jones 5. Does Hollywood never learn from the past? However, the failure of Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull may not have been Koepp’s fault entirely. George Lucas was involved in that movie as well. So I guess we’ll find out of Koepp does better without Lucas this time around.
Koepp’s filmography includes Indiana Jones: The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Jurassic Park, The Shadow, Mission: Impossible, Stir of Echoes, Spider-Man, Secret Window, War of the Worlds, Premium Rush, and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit to name a few. Most of those do not inspire much confidence in me, but I’m hoping for the best. It’s nice to have an Indy movie to look forward to at any rate, so long as it isn’t a disappointment.
I’m really not a grumpy guy and hate to be a downer. I just want movie makers to have passion that I can see in the final film. Indiana Jones 5 is set to be released in theaters on June 19, 2019.
