Indiana Jones to die in fifth film?

If Harrison Ford has his way, Indiana Jones may not make the third act of INDIANA JONES 5.

According to Showbizspy, the actor wants to the character to meet his end in the next Indiana Jones film, which is currently being written by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg.

The site quotes an insider on the film: “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 he doesn’t have all the say though.”

INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL was released in May 2008 to a wide critical drubbing but became a commercial success, so the idea of a sequel was always on the cards. From the moment 4 arrived, the world was discussing whether the 5th installment ( originally on the contract for INDY) would see the light of day, after all, Harrison Ford is pushing middle 60′s now.

The only official word from Ford about the fifth film is: “Steven and George and I are sort of agreed on a germ of an idea and we’re seeing what comes of it.”

    Indy to die in fifth film shocker! What of? Old age?
    If memory serves, there was an elderly eye-patch wearing Dr Jones that relayed the stories in Young Indiana Jones, so that may put a stop to Ford’s wishes. But then again, we all know Lucas is not one to worry about a little thing like integrity to the product – no doubt it’s only a matter of time before he re-edits the originals so that the Arab swordsman shoots first…
