Harrison Ford has revealed the elements that make him want to continue revisiting the Indiana Jones character. And it isn’t space travel.
When asked at a recent LA Times event if he’d be up for doing more Indiana Jones movies, Jones said: “Maybe a fifth, but I ain’t going to Mars.”
“Next time we get a script for Indiana Jones, I’d be delighted to play the character.”
“Each time we meet him, we wanted to advance the audience’s understanding of the character, not just by putting him in adventures, but by learning something about him…”
“That’s what led to the meeting of his father [in The Last Crusade], played by Sean Connery, and his son [in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull], played by Shia, and bringing Marion back.”
He then joked that Spielberg only hires him for Indiana Jones flicks, even though, as an actor, he has a bit of range.
Spielberg’s reply? “You know who I offered Jurassic Park to? This guy. Alan Grant, Jurassic Park, right here.”
As much as we love Sam Neill in that role, that’s one post-release alteration we could definitely get on board with.
