"Indiana Jones 4" Script Near Done; Spielberg Always Busy

by | June 23, 2006 | Comments

Master filmmaker Steven Spielberg has averaged a movie a year since the year 2000, so we understand if the guy needs to take a few months vacation, but (as usual) the guy’s back burner is absolutely stuffed with alluring projects … not the least of which is the ravenously anticipated "Indiana Jones 4."

The Hollywood Reporter recently ran a piece with new DreamWorks honcho Stacy Snider, and the article threw a spotlight on what Mr. Spielberg will be up to next:

"Snider’s current task will be finding the next picture Spielberg directs. Having made two 2005 movies back-to-back, "War of the Worlds" and "Munich," the prolific Spielberg has not yet committed to his next film. But there are several projects on the drawing board, including an Abraham Lincoln biopic, an untitled space travel project at Paramount and a script by Rod Lurie set in the glitzy New York media world as well as "Indiana Jones 4," which Paramount would co-finance with George Lucas‘ Lucasfilm. David Koepp‘s script is expected in two to three months."

(Since 2000, Mr. Spielberg has directed "A.I. Artificial Intelligence," "Minority Report," "Catch Me If You Can," "The Terminal," "War of the Worlds," and "Munich.")
