Indiana Jones 5: George Lucas has a story, needs the right MacGuffin

Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford would return for sequel to 2008’s weak Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull

While the story for a fifth Indiana Jones has been decided upon, the device that will drive the film forwards is still up in the air, according to George Lucas. Last week, it was reported that director Steven Spielberg said a genre and concept were already locked in – but Lucas says things aren’t that quite there yet. “Actually, I told him I didn’t have it yet. I told him about the story, but I really haven’t found the MacGuffin yet. I mean, I know what it’s about, but I just have to find a MacGuffin that fits into the arena we’re working in.”

The last Indiana Jones film, Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, made a massive $786 million at the box office. It will likely be years before we see a sequel. We just hope – HOPE – that Shia LaBeouf stays out of the next one.
