Filmmakers can work on a project for years, even coming so far as to finishing casting, only to see it dissolve as an aspirin in water. One of the more curious “could have been” projects of the last few years is the proposed Star Wars live-action series Star Wars: Underworld.

Arguably the greatest hero in all of cinema history, Indiana Jones, has captured the imaginations of generations and generations of movie fans ever since he first made his debut in Steven Spielberg’s classic adventure flick Raiders of the Lost Ark all the way back in 1981.
With Disney now owning the franchise and the possibilities of more movies, I stopped to think about some Indiana Jones projects that were never realised over the years – some of them sound interesting, some of them not. Check them out.

Just because, here are another ten scenes that make Han Solo what we love about him: a goddarn cold blooded (sometimes laserbrain) smuggler!
