How about something entirely original for females, because they deserve better?
By "Indy" I didn't necessarily mean we should swap the sex and call Indiana Jones a female now. What I mean is that maybe there is a place for a big and new female character that is Indiana Jones-esque enough to fit in this universe? Since idk how willing Ford is to do this and they're clearly looking for other options now.
Fuck I don't care. It's just something I want, now that I'm thinking of it. I used to get really starry eyed about archaeology when I was a kid, how cool could that be, if executed properly.
edit: p.s. i never really got into lara croft, which is why i'd be more interested in something along these lines
Archaeology + original = yes.
I would love to see that with a central female character.
Variety - ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Will Miss 2020 Release Date (EXCLUSIVE)
The fifth film in the adventure series will miss its original release date, Variety has learned. Filming was supposed to begin in April of 2019 in the United Kingdom, but sources close to the production say that shooting will no longer start next spring and will have to be pushed back by months, if not a year. Potential crew members have already been informed of the delay.
Part of the issue is that the key members of the creative team have yet to sign off on a finished script. Collider reported on Thursday that Jonathan Kasdan, son of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” scribe Lawrence Kasdan, has been enlisted to deliver a new draft. A deal has yet to close to bring the writer on board, but it looks as though he will soon join the project.
Ford keeps himself in great nick, it's not like Roger Moore wheezing up the Eiffel Tower.
Not my main issue. KOTCS was supposed to be a passing of the torch entry, and this fifth entry would put him in Connery role. Bummer, the world decided Shia was a crime against humanity.
Now we’re back on track with, again, Indy as the centerpiece (supposedly), but ten years later. That’s just pushing it. He’s no Deckard or Solo. I don’t see it working unless he works as a pure scholar.
