Indiana Jones And The Bermuda Triangle anyone?

Fifth flick could top daftness of fourth

Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones next outing is rumoured to involve that fabulous movie McGuffin the Bermuda Triangle.

Hmmm, yes, best to file this one under Crazy Outrageous Rumours We Picked Up On The Grapevine. But word is running rampant online that Ford could indeed be about to take on yet another Jones adventure involving the infamous Triangle.

An anonymous source (reliability there, then) over at Music Rooms reported the rumour, adding:

“Shia LaBeouf has a central role again as Indy’s son but this will be a blockbuster made in the old fashioned way rather than the CGI efforts of the last movie”.

Believe them? Think they’re talking out of that place where the sun don’t shine? Either way, it’s something to get us thinking about with regard to another Indiana Jones adventure.

The fact that Ford and young pup (alright, sigh, Mutt) Shia LaBeouf have both dropped hints about the Triangle in recent interviews makes us more inclined to believe this new report.

Ford told the BBC in March that “George [Lucas] and Steven [Spielberg] have been working on a script and it’s almost there”.

Could the Triangle pose a great new challenge? Or does Indy deserve something better? Comments below…

      Oh my god, Hollywood. Let old dogs die. And young Mutts too. (That was painful.)

      Hey I'm all for another Jones flick, but please for the love of god, NO ALIENS. "Crystal Skull" was really not as bad as everyone likes to say, but what the F%@# were aliens doing in it??? However the Bermuda triangle could be a good fit for Indy, question is, "Who's gonna play Amelia Earnhart?"

      I think the Bermuda Triangle deserves better. I love the stories related to the Bermuda Triangle, but Lucas will just ruin it. Lucas might have had a fleeting moment of greatness (rather just plain luck) back in the day, but now he just gives us Howard the Duck in 3D steroids.

      I will ALWAYS be thrilled to see more Indiana Jones, but please for the love of God no Mutt. Go the 'Temple' route, and make a prequel to number 4! And bring back John Rhys Davies! "Asps, very dangerous, you go first!"

      No Mutt Williams, no CGI monkeys and a little more of an intelligent ending with less interdimensional alien nonsense. Then I'll be all in favor for a fifth round!

      Remember the fantastic opening of Close Encounters? This setting would provide ample opportunity for that kind of thing in Indy 5. But for the love of God, don't let that hack David Koepp write the script. His gleefully open disdain for the genre he was exploring in Indy 4 ("There isn't a thought in its head") indicates they should get someone who actually cares about the characters they're writing for.

      "Crystal Skull was really not as bad as everyone likes to say, but what the F%@# were aliens doing in it???" - Totally disagree with this comment, the aliens didn't ruin the film, the fact that it was unfunny, witless, pretentious, cheap looking, badly scripted and had Shia LeBeouf as Jones' son ruined it. Are Aliens any less plausible than the Ark of the Covenant having supernatural, wrath of God type powers that melt your head and make it explode? It's just fantasy. The ultimate bollocks moment for me in Crystal Skull was the fight in the truck/warehouse. It was blatantly shot in a studio and looked so tacky and cheap, along with the rest of the sets. Crystal Skull was just shoddy from the get-go. I would watch the follow up if you paid me.

      Wasn't the Kingdom of the Crystall Scull bad enough? @ Nickey09 Unfortunatelly, even if they did, it's Hollywood and those people are -as Cartman would say- like ginger kids; they have no souls.

      I have the opposite view. People chiming in with their low explectations based on their own unproven vision. They might as well be named Cartman. The Bermuda Triangle premise - in Spielberg's hands - will be worth watching. If you were actually BOTHERED by the escape in the fridge, you have big problems. I thought it was excellent Indiana Jones fun. And I hope Ford keeps playing Indy regardess of age. There is such age-ism here.

      Stupid retards, the Bermuda Triangle is a s**te story for an Indiana Jones movie that will end up in the same crappy fashion that Kingdom of the Crystal Skull did.. Let it go the old fashioned way: Religious artifacts.. And hopefully make it Biblical considering the reason the series is legendary is because two of its better movies (Raiders and Crusade) are centered around Biblical artifacts (Ark and Grail).. Hopefully the Holy Cross would help crucify that s**t-stained Kingdom of the Plastic Skull
