Next Indiana Jones May Be A Woman, According To Steven Spielberg!

A female Indiana Jones? Could be!

In a new interview with The Sun, Steven Spielberg confirmed the planned Indy 5 "will be Harrison Ford's last" but he does say the franchise "will certainly continue after that."

But if another archaeologist adventurer is going to take up the mantle and the nickname, why not a woman? Spielberg is down! He said:

"We'd have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that."

Um… that's not how last names work. LOLz!

Spielberg puts his money where his mouth is when it comes to feminism though, as he's used his power on his last two films, The Post and Ready Player One, to ensure pay equality between the male and female leads. So maybe this really will happen!

Ch-ch-check out our list (below) to see which other films we think could work rebooted with a female cast…

Casting Call For Stranger Things (AKA Montauk) Seemingly Supports Claims That Duffer Brothers Abducted The Show!

Did Barb just blow Netflix's cover?

While the jury's still out on whether the Duffer Brothers ripped off Stranger Things from a short film Montauk, does a casting call obtained by TMZ seem to prove the sci-fi hit at least stole the film's title during the development stage?

The casting call for the role of "Barbara" reveals the Netflix series was being developed under the name Montauk — the same title as Charlie Kessler's 2012 found-footage short about top secret government experiments in Long Island.

According to the suit, Kessler claims he met and pitched his film and related feature film script titled The Montauk Project to Matt and Ross Duffer at a Tribeca Film Festival premiere party in April 2014.

The timing of the casting call is enough to raise eyebrows. Though the Duffers didn't strike a deal with Kessler for his project about secret government projects, the paranormal, and a cop haunted by his past, they were clearly casting in August 2015 for a series called Montauk — a show also about all those things.

The casting call states:

Stolen Things?? Lawsuit Claims Duffer Brothers Ripped Off Stranger Things From THIS Short Film!

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersSteven SpielbergNetflixStranger Things

no title

When we heard The Duffer Brothers were being sued for allegedly ripping off Stranger Things, we probably had the same thought you did — Stephen King and Steven Spielberg lawyered up! LOLz!

But no, the man claiming the duo stole his idea is named Charlie Kessler, creator of award-winning short film Montauk.

In his suit, TMZ reports Kessler claims in 2014 he pitched the Duffers the idea for a TV series version of the short, which also involved mysterious events and secret government experiments. He says they used his ideas, story, and script and even sold it under the name The Montauk Project.

While it's true the original ST pilot was sold under the name Montauk, and was intended to take place in Montauk, New York rather than the fictional everytown of Hawkins, Indiana, that's about the only similarity we can see.

The generic found footage film certainly has no style, visuals, characters, or nostalgia trips in common with the Netflix show — but don't take our word for it! You can watch the whole thing (below) and see if you agree!

Master of None writer/actress Lena Waithe speaks out.

As we reported, in January, a woman with the pseudonym of "Grace" spoke to babe about an incident involving Aziz Ansari which she calls "the worst experience with a man [she has] ever had."
