Shia LaBeouf stated last year that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas had cracked the story for the next installment in the Indiana Jones franchise. This nes was also confirmed by Harrison Ford and that all three of them were working on an idea.
Now comes news that Spielberg has shown Shia LaBeouf the first treatment of the script, They’re script writing right now,” the actor explained. “I got called into Steven’s office and he pitched a little bit to me and it sounds crazy, it sounds really cool.”
From this is seems that Spielberg is the one putting the script together at the moment as no writers have been hired yet. I personally think Ford is the one who should’ve been given the first initial pitch, but just as long as it stays away from fricking aliens and acts as an apology for the latter part of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, then I shall be happy!
