UPDATE: While the original article (which has been inexplicably wiped) described New Zealand site Stuff’s unsubstantiated claims that Spielberg and Lucas were working hard on Indy 5 to begin shooting next year, everything was bullshit!
The piece claimed the new films would take place around the Bermuda Triangle, feature plenty of Mutt, and mark a return to old-school style filmmaking (ha!). The source claimed the script was “almost there.”
Last night, USA Today’s film writer Anthony Breznican contacted Lucasfilm and actually got a response… it’s all bull’s shit.
…via his twitter…
“Lucasfilm tells me flat-out: #IndianaJones 5 rumors, Bermuda Triangle, etc, are completely bogus. Not happening.”
Not the least bit surprising, but a happy update nonetheless.
