While there has been rumor and talk of a new Indiana Jones movie for some time, now LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy finally confirms it will happen.
In buying the company, Disney also got rights, for better or worse, to less-storied Lucasfilm properties, among them Willow and Radioland Murders. A bigger prize is the Indiana Jones franchise. Kennedy confirmed rumors that another Indy movie ‘will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.
Various rumors mentioned that Harrison Ford would be returning for new Indiana Jones movies as part of his Star Wars contract, and the latest rumor had it that Disney was rebooting Indiana Jones with Chris Pratt, which Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn stated wasnt true.
We'll have to wait for more news from Disney to see if the new Indiana Jones is a sequel featuring Harrison Ford or a reboot using another actor, but at least we know now that one is definitely being developed.
