Ford: Momentum Is Building For INDIANA JONES 5

Now that the dusty old gears are turning again, franchise star Harrison Ford says another adventure for his geriatric archaeologist is a definite possibility.
Considering the difficulty in finding the right time and the right script to reunite creator George Lucas, star Harrison Ford and director Steven Spielberg, many in Hollywood assumed the fourth Indiana Jones feature never would be made.

Now Lucas "is in think mode" cooking up a suitable plot for a FIFTH movie in the series, Ford told the LA Times' GEOFF BOUCHER on Friday, October 3rd, calling the development "crazy but great."

"It's automatic, really, we did well with the last one and with that having done well and been a positive experience, it's not surprising that some people want to do it again."

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull grossed $770 million worldwide, and expectations are high for its October 14th DVD / Blu-Ray release.

Ford admitted to having doubts about bringing his classic alter ego successfully into the 21st century, and he was surprised that their "calculated business risk" paid off so handsomely.

"The first time we showed it to a disinterested outside audience was at Cannes," said the 66-year-old icon. "That's a crap shoot of the first order. Not only is that audience sophisticated and film-knowledgable, it's French! And it's their country and their festival and we somewhat expected to be seriously slapped around. But we were not, we were was very gratifying."
