'Indiana Jones 5' to Kill Off Harrison Ford

Though George Lucas is against the idea, Steven Spielberg agrees that the latest sequel should be the actor's last.

Showbiz Spy reports that actor Harrison Ford wants his iconic Doctor Henry Jones Jr. character killed off in Indiana Jones 5. Here's what an insider told the site, which reveales how producers George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are leaning towards the idea:

"Harrison thinks it would be good for Indy to die and pass on his hat to his son in the next one. George especially is resisting the notion, but Steven is considering it. Funnily enough Harrison wanted the same for Han Solo in the final Star Wars but George put an end to it. This time (George) doesn't have all the say though."


We reported back in August that a story for Indiana Jones 5 had been cracked with a script now in the works. It is still unclear when Indiana Jones 5 will go into production, but stay tuned for the latest details as soon as more information comes in.

Indiana Jones 5 is in development .

    i think thats a dumb idea, if anything finish it off like last crusade into the sunset, thats a better ending. just my opnion though.

    hmmmm...almost sounds like the early idea for leathel weapon 4 where they had talked about riggs dying but at the last minute roger saves him....they'll do the same here indy is about to die and his son will rescue him at the last second....

    @Furankisan, they had to place the last movie beyond the 40's and the Nazis. Ford has aged a lot, so they needed to age Jones appropriately.

    As far as this story, I don't like it. If they plan on giving the franchise to Shia, I'd rather they start at the beginning of the 5th movie, at Indiana Jones' funeral(his death off-screen--it would be less traumatic, at least for me). But if it was up to me, this movie will never be made. There is just no justification for continuing with someone other than Ford.

    I think it makes sense. Harrison is getting too old to keep playing this character. Is he going to play it in a wheelchair in the 70's or 80's decade.

    I smell the franchise setting up for more installments with Shia LaBeouf as the front runner. Lame.

    How about kill Shia? There's no resuscitating this franchise after the last film which was one of the worst films I have ever witnessed. But, it's a start.

    i'm not against the idea... i'm against SHIA! they toasted themselves by (1) casting him and (2) writing his character as a James Dean knock-off (or letting Shia make it that).

    @Insert fully agreed. Besides-how many damn times have we seen indy evade death? He eluded a nuclear bomb for petes sake. What else is there to handle?

    they should kill him off at the beginning of Indiana5 so audiences dont have to sit through another sh-t show debacle that was CrystalSkull... Although, that was a hell of a time my friends and I had in the theater...we just didnt know we were going to see a comedy

    Retire? Yeah. Die? No. Maybe Spielberg feels that Indy needs to go out with a bang, and retirement probably isn't the most exciting prospect. But killing him off is just wrong.

    I don't know what's more disturbing...that Steven Spielberg wants to kill Indiana Jones, or that George Lucas doesn't. It's pretty scary when Lucas is the sane one.

    Here's the difference between Lucas and Spielberg: Lucas is a crowd-pleaser. He writes for fanboys. Whether it be Star Wars or Indiana Jones, his properties are the type that last for generations and generations, no matter how crappy they may be. The characters and universe he creates are what sells his stuff, it's what gets fanboys crazy. Introduce Ewoks in Return of the Jedi? Sure. Jar-Jar in Phantom Menace? Go for it. Hayden Christensen? We'll let that one slide...because it's f*cking Star Wars. And this is f*cking Indiana Jones. They don't die, no matter how sh*tty it may get at points.

    Spielberg, on the other hand, doesn't make movies to create the next big event or appeal to the crowds at geek conventions. If he feels there's a story to be told, he's going to tell it, despite what the fan reaction might be. Only in this case, he's wrong. Lucas gets that Indiana Jones is more than just another character that can be killed and replaced. He's an icon, and icons don't die. How many movies has James Bond been in? How many super heroes have been killed and brought back to life because we can't live without them?

    Say what you want about Lucas, but he's right this time. He more than most people knows the fanboy community and the importance of iconic characters. He's responsible for pretty much the entire Star Wars galaxy after all, and he knows who should and shouldn't be killed. Indiana Jones falls into the latter category.
