George Lucas Not Involved With The Story For Indiana Jones 5

Whether you love him, hate him, or just think Han shot first, George Lucas will reportedly not have anything to do with the story for Indiana Jones 5.

Screenwriter David Koepp, who worked on the screenplay for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, will reunite with Steven Spielberg for the upcoming flick, but he told Collider that Lucas will be sitting this one out. "He's not [involved], to my knowledge," Koepp said. "I've had no contact with him."

According to Disney and Lucasfilm, Lucas will serve as an executive producer on the film. But if Koepp is correct, this will be the first Indiana Jones movie that won't have a story by Lucas, the guy who came up with all that alien business in The Crystal Skull.

When asked what he could reveal about the new script, Koepp offered a tongue-in-cheek response. "I'm deeply immersed as we speak. All I can say is that there's lots of aliens and Indy dies at the end [laughs]. Lots of hiding in lead-lined refrigerators, aliens, and he dies. Should go over very well."

Although he's kidding, Koepp did say that the plot of Indiana Jones 5 will be less convoluted than the last installment. "I really like our idea," he said. "I think it's clean and simple and makes a lot of sense, and I feel like the writing is going really well."

Koepp said filming could begin in 2017, and it's already scheduled for release July 19, 2019. Here's what we know about the movie so far.
