Shia LaBeouf Not Involved with Indiana Jones 5

Just like as quickly as Indy snatches the hat away from Shia Labeouf at the end of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Indiana Jones 5 writer David Koepp snatches Lebeouf’s character, Mutt, from the sequel. And that’s probably a good thing.

David Koepp confirmed that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Indiana Jones and that “the Shia LaBeouf character is not in the film.” Koepp even went on to say:

“We’re plugging away at it. In terms of when we would start, I think that’s up to Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Ford,” he continues, playfully teasing that the plot will involve “some precious artifact that they’re all looking for” throughout the film. “I know we’ve got a script we’re mostly happy with. Work will be endless, of course, and ongoing, and Steven just finished shooting The Post …. If the stars align, hopefully it’ll be his next film.”

In an 2010 interview with the LA Times, LaBeouf criticized Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as well as himself saying “you can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on Steven [Spielberg, who directed]. But the actor’s job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn’t do it. So that’s my fault. Simple,” and that “there was a reason it wasn’t universally accepted.” This could all be reason why LaBeouf will not return to the next Indy film.

The Transformer actor has recently made headlines and not for good reasons. He was arrested back in July for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and obstruction. During his arrest he even threatened an officer. Just a few months before that he was arrested for shoving a man at an anti-Trump protest.

Another notable name not returning to the sequel is George Lucas who has been involved with the franchise since its first installment Raiders of the Lost Ark.

CANON OF FILM: ‘Jurassic Park’

I don't think I'd even rank 'Jurassic Park' among Spielberg's Top 20 features. Admittedly, that's as much a tribute to Spielberg's body of work than anything else, but this is basically just a well-made horror movie.
