Lucasfilm Denies Future ‘Indy’ Sequels In Works

“It’s not the years,” Indiana Jones tells Marion in “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “It’s the mileage.” But, 26 years after he first appeared on the big screen — and one year before he’s set to make his triumphant return — just how much more mileage can Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and star Harrison Ford squeeze out of the legendary character?

Apparently quite a lot — that is, if you believe reports today on IESB that claim Harrison Ford is signed on for two more Indy films after “4” (for a total of three), and Shia LaBeouf is signed on for three more (a total of four). But alas, like many online whisperings, this one appears to be nothing more than wishful thinking. That is, at least according to the studio.

“That’s purely a rumor,” Lucasfilm’s Director of Publicity John Singh told MTV News. “Idle chatter among Internet fans.”

An official denial…but that won’t stop us from speculating anyway. Given what you’ve heard and seen from the set of “Indy 4,” would you like to see even more adventures for our whip-wielding hero? Sound off below.
