Steven Spielberg Speaks On Jurassic Park IV And Indiana Jones 5!

Steven Spielberg Indiana Jones Jurassic Park

Saying it's hard to keep a franchise going strong is an understatement!

But Steven Spielberg definitely seems into it. Especially with pal George Lucas by his side.

They're both currently working on Indiana Jones 5, and he assures us George has all the sauce:

You have to ask George. 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 Indiana Jones 5. 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.

All right, so he wasn't as informative there, but he DOES have a lot to say about the less than favorable Crystal Skull:

I'm very happy with the movie. I always have been. I sympathize 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. I'll add my own touches, I'll bring my own cast in, I'll shoot the way I want to shoot it, but I will always defer to George as the storyteller of the Indy series. I will never fight him on that. The gopher was good. I have the stand-in one at home. What people really jumped at was Indy climbing into a refrigerator and getting blown into the sky by an atom-bomb blast. Blame me. Don't blame George. That was my silly idea. People stopped saying "jump the shark". They now say, "nuked the fridge". I'm proud of that. I'm glad I was able to bring that into popular culture.

Trust us, Stephen, that's definitely not the only thing….

But what about the new Jurassic Park??

The screenplay is being written right now by Mark Protosevich. 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.

Well that's good to hear! We'll definitely be going to the theaters to check it out, though. C'mon, it's Jurassic Park!

    say that joke u said about harrison again that was hilarious
    was keeper of the pacemaker or something i forget lolol

    unfortunately or fortunately speilberg did a section for that tidal wave movie where matt damon is psychic or something anyways the start of it was speilberg special effects all that then like i said once before then the movie fell horribly FLAT .. so if they are going to stick in special effects need to make sure its not all great beginning then flat middle nothing end

    when the effects are gone

    I'm sorry, Indiana Jones is Harrison Ford. When he's no longer to play the role then the franchise goes with him. And Shia LaBeouf is not a replacement for Harrison. He couldn't even hold his hat.

    Spielberg is an icon & will be forever remembered as one of the greatest directors - but i have to say, his particular brands of family friendly action doesn't feel fresh anymore. Most of the time the projects he's produced or directed are over-worked and cliched - from movies to tv, i'm no longer excited to see his name attached.

    No, no, no, please stop destroying these franchises and your legacy. Let them be, and move on to something else.
