Shia LaBeouf has plans to once again star alongside Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones as his son, Mutt Williams, says a report from ShowbizSpy.
The actor is quoted as saying that he’s been pitched the idea for the fifth film in the franchise by Steven Spielberg himself.
“They’re script writing right now,” said LaBeouf, “…[I]t sounds crazy. It sounds really cool.”
Though it’s impossible to say how long the writing process might take, LaBeouf’s comments seem to be the first confirmation that a fifth Indiana Jones adventure will indeed be a sequel to 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, for example, was technically a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark, a storytelling technique that George Lucas and Spielberg don’t seem to have plans to revisit.
