Rumors about a negotiation to participate in Star Wars VIIo n the condition of a new Indiana Jones movie are getting strong, but, it may be bigger than we expect.
Buried within a MarketSaw rumor about Star Wars is a possible fate for Ford and Indy, one that seems… implausible? Ford’s silence regarding Star Wars, apparently, isn’t because he’s signed or unsigned, but rather because part of his Star Wars involvement hinges on a new Indiana Jones picture. Wait, check that, TWO Indiana Jones pictures. Apparently he’s certain to do both, but the contractually-obligated Indy films are still in the negotiation stages as part of a package dea
What do you think? Do you want two more Indiana Jones adventures?

Last week we reported that Disney had picked up the distribution and marketing rights to future installments of the popular Indiana Jones franchise, so it was implied that at least one more Indiana Jones is about to come. However, Disney has release an statement telling that the future movie won’t be arriving any time soon. According to Variety, it will probably be “at least two to three years” before another adventure starring the beloved archeologist.

The deal is closed. Although there is no upcoming Indiana Jones movie officially announced, Disney got the rights to do more.
When Disney purchased Lucasfilm last year, there was a question of how future Indiana Jones films would proceed since Paramount released the first four movies. Today, Disney announced that it has reached an arrangement with Paramount regarding the franchise.
The Patriot Games star has played the adventurous archaeologist in four movies, most recently 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and he admits he would love to put on the character’s fedora hat one more time.
Ford acknowledges his advancing years might be a factor on set, and he would have to rely on a stuntman for the more energetic scenes.
With rumors that he’s preparing a return to the Star Wars franchise as Han Solo, Ford’s other major Lucasfilm role came up for discussion during a new interview–and he had a pretty thoughtful answer for the question.
“We’ve seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it’s perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn’t necessarily have to kick as much ass,” he told The Telegraph. “To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do.”

No good news actually. Collider recently got to interview producer Frank Marshall and he gave a pessimistic update on the status of a fifth Indiana Jones film. Though talk of Indiana Jones 5 has continued since 2008 with the release of Crystal Skull, there’s really been no actual forward movement on the story.
“I say, for me, [Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is] the last hurrah. I know that yes, we talk about it, but there’s no idea, there’s no MacGuffin.”

Harrison Ford, still best known to many film fans as Han Solo from Star Wars, reckons he would be up for a fifth outing as Indiana Jones if the opportunity arose – but only if the script adequately impressed him.
The 69-year-old, currently starring with Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde in Cowboys And Aliens, has played the intrepid archaeological explorer four times already.
