File this under rumor for now, but Stuff is reporting that work is underway on the latest (and possibly last) big screen adventure for Indiana Jones. The site says that the production will begin shooting next year and will be centered around the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle in the Atlantic Ocean. They report that Shia LaBeouf’s Mutt Williams will join Indiana, but don’t make mention if Karen Allen will return as the feisty (and lovable) Marion Ravenwood (but I think it would be a safe assumption if this pans out to be true).
I’m not sure how I feel about the Bermuda Triangle angle. There is a lot they could do with it. It could be a portal to an alternate reality, or just a place stuck between time. Could Indiana meet anyone from historic Triangle disappearances? Could he meet the crew of the USS Cyclops or the guests of the Connemara IV? What would take Indiana to the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean? Would be be investigating the disappearance of a friend? Or would he be on a completely different adventure (or honeymoon/vacation) and get stucks in the Triangle and it is up to Shia’s Mutt WIlliams to find his father and help him escape?
There was a lot I liked in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and there was a lot that didn’t work. The pieces that worked made it worth seeing Indiana back, and I’d love to see more of that. So I hope they make this. I’d like to see where they go from here.
