In Future News - Indy 5 Flops or: How Shia LeBeouf Learned to Successfully Make an Iconic Franchise His Own

Fox News' Roger Friedman had a chance to talk with George Lucas concerning the Indian Jones Franchise. It sounds like Lucas has some gears turning in his head about a possible fifth installment.

"I haven’t even told Steven or Harrison this," he said. "But I have an idea to make Shia [LeBeouf] the lead character next time and have Harrison [Ford] come back like Sean Connery did in the last movie. I can see it working out."

It sounds a little risky if you ask me. Shia is great and all but Harrison Ford IS the franchise. Plus I'm not sure I would like to see an entire Indiana Jones movie with constant Shia LeBouf ad libbing. I guess I should see The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull before I can say too much about my feelings on Shia cracking the whip in a fifth movie. Who knows Shia could could be the man to fill the shoes. I have to hand it to him, The guy has made some great stuff. The Greatest Game Ever Played shows a great side of his acting that we don't get to see in a lot of his roles. Maybe Indy 5 wouldn't be movie full of ad libs. I'm just saying it's risky and I'm glad that it's just an idea and nothing concrete. Would they call it 'Mutt Williams'?
