Indiana Jones 5 is scarcely underway, but in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Disney CEO Bob Iger suggests that an Indy reboot of some kind might not be that far behind.
While it might seem like Hollywood is tripping all over itself to squeeze every inch of profit out of successful franchises, it's not that surprising that a forward-thinking CEO would be, well, thinking ahead. With Harrison Ford on board to star in Indy 5, the Indiana Jones franchise is alive and well, and a reboot would undoubtedly turn younger audiences into Indy fans.
When asked if there would be an Indy universe akin to the Star Wars one, Iger responded:
“Not like Star Wars, no. But we hope…right now, we’re focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort.”
Clearly it's early, but an Indiana Jones remake is likely to happen in some form or another. Iger put it this way:
"We [got] Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in the film. But then what's the direction? I've had discussions about what the direction is, [but] I don't want to get into it...I don't think it reaches the scale of the universe of Star Wars, but I see making more. It won't be just a one-off."
