While doing the press rounds for the forthcoming Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen Shia LaBeouf has been talking about his up and coming projects. The young star has revealed that a new Indiana Jones film is on the way and that he is excited to be starring in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps opposite Michael Douglas.
With regards to the fifth installment in the Indiana Jones franchise La Beouf said:
“Steven just said that he cracked the story on it before I left and I think they’re gearing that up.”
This doesn’t mean that the film is anywhere near production. It took a decade before Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford agreed on a script before The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hit the screen. Now if you throw LaBeouf into the mix the process becomes even more complicated.
Having said that – money talks in Hollywood. Last summer’s installment of the Indy franchise grossed almost $800 million, so I’d bet that we’ll see a fifth film sooner rather than later with LaBeouf returning as Indy’s son. It was recently revealed that Harrison Ford received $65 million for starring in the sequel!
Speaking of money, LaBeouf said that Money Never Sleeps is now the official title for the Wall Street sequel to be directed by Oliver Stone.
So what do you think about another Indiana Jones movie considering how the last one turned out?
Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen starring LaBeouf and Megan Fox opens on June 24.
