Spielberg talks about Jurassic Park IV and Indiana Jones V

Written by Nick Workman October 26, 2011

 

Steven Spielberg spoke to Empire magazine about whether a new Jurassic park film is in the works.

“The screenplay is being written right now by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend). I’m hoping that will come out in the next couple of years. We have a good story. We have a better story for four than we had for three.”

When asked about the future of Indiana Jones, Spielberg said:

“You have to ask George Lucas. George is in charge of breaking the stories. He’s done it on all four movies. Whether I like the stories or not, George has broken all the stories… “He is working on Indy V. We haven’t gone to screenplay yet, but he’s working on the story. I’ll leave it to George to come up with a good story.”

Spielberg also addressed the controversy that arose over the Indiana Jones film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (warning spoilers ahead):

“I sympathise with people who didn’t like the MacGuffin because I never liked the MacGuffin. “George and I had big arguments about the MacGuffin. I didn’t want these things to be either aliens or inter-dimensional beings. But I am loyal to my best friend. When he writes a story he believes in – even if I don’t believe in it – I’m going to shoot the movie the way George envisaged it.”

Steven Spielberg’s  War Horse comes out December 25th, 2012, and The Adventures of Tintin December 21st, 2012.
