George Lucas Isn’t Involved With ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Script, Per Screenwriter

Indiana Jones

Earlier this year, Disney confirmed they would be releasing Indiana Jones 5 in 2019. The film will be directed by Steven Spielberg, with Harrison Ford reprising the title role he’s been playing since 1981. Given how well the actor’s return to playing Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was received, it only made sense that we get to see Ford play Dr. Jones once more.

But like the Star Wars films, some are worried that George Lucas will have some influence on the creative direction of the franchise. However, we might not have to worry about that any longer. According to David Koepp, Lucas might not be as involved as we originally thought. Check out what screenwriter Koepp had to say here below.

Michael Fassbender in Assassin's Creed Movie

20th Century Fox has released a second trailer for Assassin’s Creed, the movie adaptation of the hit video game series of the same name. The first trailer was released back in May.

This new trailer is longer than the first trailer and dives more into the time when the character Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) is getting acquainted with the mysterious corporation Abstergo and their virtual reality machine the Animus, mixed with some glimpses of his time inside the Animus itself where he experiences the life of his ancestor, the assassin Aguilar, over 500 years in the past.

You can read an official plot synopsis for the movie and watch the new trailer below.

Jurassic World 2 To Be Directed by J.A. Bayona

Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World was a huge summer hit. Its success was thanks in part to director Colin Trevorrow, who had helped resurrect and reboot the iconic franchise. However, Trevorrow confirmed that he wouldn’t return to direct a sequel. But not because there was creative disagreements or anything like that, but that he and producer Steven Spielberg had agreed he would do one film. His confirmation to direct Star Wars: Episode IX pretty much put an end to any hope that he would direct a Jurassic World 2. So that left the studio in a position to look for a new director.

And it seems as though they have found one. A new report says The Orphanage helmer Juan Antonio Bayona is now set to direct Jurassic World 2. More on the story below.

Universal Congratulates ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ On Breaking ‘Jurassic World’ Record (Image)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Han Solo and Chewie

Over the weekend Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke a couple of records, and you might have already heard, including Jurassic World‘s all-time biggest domestic opening weekend record.

Because Disney-owned Marvel was cool enough to congratulate Universal Pictures on breaking the record earlier this year, topping previous record-holder Marvel’s The Avengers, it seemed only fair that Universal return the favor. And that’s exactly what they’ve done. Just as Marvel tweeted out a congratulatory image of Chris Pratt riding a Tyrannosaurus rex holding Thor’s hammer Mjolnir in front of the Avengers team, Frank Marshall has tweeted out an image of the T-rex presenting droid BB-8 with a medal.

You can check out the congratulations image below.

An ‘Indiana Jones’ Reboot Won’t Include An Indy Recast

Indiana Jones

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm for $4 billion, most assumed that the studio would be focusing on the Star Wars franchise. But along with acquiring the rights to Star Wars, they also got the rights to the Indiana Jones films. Recent news has focused mostly on the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, other sequels, and their spinoffs. So it looked like Disney was putting Indiana Jones on the backburner. Rumors that Chris Pratt would play as Dr. Jones started to circulate earlier this year, but the actor said it probably wouldn’t happen because his action-film plate is pretty full. Even Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy admitted that they weren’t ready to release an Indiana Jones 5 because they didn’t have the right story yet.

However, during the Bridge of Spies press tour, director Steven Spielberg would probably do an Indiana Jones 5 with Harrison Ford, indicating that the role would probably not be recasted. Now, producer Frank Marshall is sharing that sentiment as he confirms that a recasting won’t happen. More on the story below.

Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History title

Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History
Hardcover | Kindle
Written by Michael Klastorin with Randal Atamaniuk
Foreword by Michael J. Fox
Preface by Christopher Lloyd
Introduction by Bob Gale
Afterword by Robert Zemeckis
Harper Design | HarperCollins Publishers
Release date: October 20, 2015

This month marks the 30th anniversary of Back To The Future, the Robert Zemeckis-directed Steven Spielberg-produced film that went on to become one of the greatest and most beloved movies of our time, spawning two sequels that were equally enjoyed. In conjunction with this milestone, Insight Editions has released Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History, a coffee table-sized full-cover hardcover packed with details about the film trilogy, highlighted with behind-the-scenes photos, concept art, storyboards, and a host of removable collectible-type items.

Though Back to the Future was an instant hit when Universal Pictures released it back in 1985, it was a long road from concept to screen for director/screenwriter Robert Zemeckis and screenwriter Bob Gale. Though the filmmakers had a great idea for a film about a time-travel, their initial draft of the script was rejected by over 40 movie studios. A tidbit like that is hard to believe today when we see how deeply rooted the film is in today’s pop culture, but The Ultimate Visual History reveals their lengthy struggle, which also included their multiple attempts to get Michael J. Fox, who was locked in at the time to his schedule on the popular TV sitcom Family Ties, as the lead.
