Last week, Disney and Paramount finally came to a financial arrangement with regards to future Indiana Jones films. Now that Disney owns Lucasfilm, the studio is in charge of developing and distributing the further adventures of Dr. Jones, while Paramount maintains distribution rights over the previous four films and gets a cut of the revenue from additional sequels. Though some fans sparked to the thought of a new Indiana Jones movie coming to theaters soon, Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn today told the folks at Variety not to expect a new Indy film for at least two to three years, adding, “We don’t have a story. We need a story.”
There will surely be new Indiana Jones movies in the future, be they sequels or reboots, and when they do come to fruition, Lucasfilm will be producing. The studio is rather busy at the moment though, as they have their hands full trying to launch a new Star Wars trilogy.
