Indiana Jones, The Hangover sequels

Shia LaBeoufForget for a moment that Shia LaBeouf says in this BBC interview: “I get to wake up and shake hands with mermaids and unicorns. I live in a fantasy world.” The real news is what he reveals about a new Indiana Jones film. The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen star says, “Steven [Spielberg] just said that he cracked the story on it before I left and I think they’re gearing that up.” No title, no release date and probably no script—not to mention whether Harrison Ford will be passing the torch to Shia’s Mutt—but the fifth instalment of the Indiana Jones franchise is in the works.  And in the rest of the movie world: The Hangover you had that’s refused to go away? Well, it’s getting a sequel. Director Todd Phillips told MTV that the idea had come up during the shooting of the first film, and its success means a sequel is going to happen, with cameras rolling as early as next spring: “Now that the movie has really connected, it’s something we’re doing for sure.”

    Speilberg needs to leave Indiana alone…i mean we didnt really need Kingdom of the crystal skull and a nother would seem like the studios r pushing it,,it doesnt need to be done and whats Speilberg got to prove hes done this 4 times now theres nothing more for him there…..Now a Hangover sequal sounds awesome and should be well received…

    bottom line…NOT EVERY MOVIE SHOULD HAVE A SEQUAL, even the best actors know you should leave the audience wanting for more, so they should know when enough is enough. I think they are doing another Pirates of the Carribean too.
    Maybe they can do a sequal and combine Friday the 13th and Indiana Jones, see how that one works.

    I agree, Carol, and I also heard they are doing another Pirates movie, but that Johnny Depp is the only one of the 3 main actors returning. I love these movies, and the Indiana Jones movies too, but enough is enough for sure.

    Seems like any movie that is somewhat successful nowadays will see a sequel. No matter how bad it is, it will still make money just riding on the success of the original. Saw 6 anyone?

    intensely disliked the last Indiana movie, don’t care much for Shia as an actor so this will be a huge pass…however would love to see The Hangover, am hearing many great reviews on it from friends who have seen it…would still venture out to another Pirates movie too…haven’t seen one Saw and never intend to…

    the next indiana and pirates movies are not going to be sequels, but prequals. starting out new adventures, with no mention of passed events. i will say im looking forward to anew indiana jones movie. not some much pirates of the carribean4, not after the last one.

    Didn’t see the last Indiana movie – mostly because I’m not a huge fan of Shia LaBeouf. If they made a new Indy movie with just Shia in it, chances are really really good I won’t go.
    PS…never saw Saw =)

    like your last comment, Monique…very good!

    Sequal, prequal, whatever, it’s all the same in the end…OVERDONE!
    I only saw one Saw movie, hated it, even though it was very fake, I hate the gorry movies.
