Lucasfilm confirms new Indiana Jones movie

The new film doesn't have a script yet


Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that a new Indiana Jones movie is in the pipeline. "(An Indiana Jones film) will one day be made inside this company," Kennedy told Vanity Fair. "When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it." Rumours have circulated since last year that Chris Pratt will take on the iconic role for Indie's next big screen outing.

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm for $4 billion in October 2012 (and with it all of George Lucas' film franchise properties) the big acquisition was the Star Wars universe, which will expand with three more episodes and at least two standalone films within the next five years. While it was always assumed that Disney would eventually want to cash in their Indiana Jones chip, Kennedy's statement marks the first time the studio has admitted a new Jones film is being discussed. As part of the Lucasfilm deal, Disney also was given the option of remaking the fantasy film Willow as well as Lucas' comedy-mystery Radioland Murders.
