George Lucas Continues To Rape And Tarnish Dr. Jones Legacy

George Lucas is talking about Indy 5 and insists the film won't centre on Mutt (Shia LaBeouf).

Two weeks before the fourth film opened, Lucas told reporters at the Cannes Film Festival that he already had an idea for a possible 'Indiana Jones V,' and that it centred, not on Dr. Henry Jones, but on his son, Mutt Williams.Now however it seems Lucas has had a change of heart (or took on board the over whelming backlash).

Asked whether he still considered Mutt Williams a strong enough character to drive an "Indiana Jones" film, Lucas was adamant that Indy just isn't Indy without Indy.

"Indiana Jones is Indiana Jones. Harrison Ford IS Indiana Jones," Lucas said, dismissively adding about a character he helped create that, "If it was Mutt Williams it would be ‘Mutt Williams and the Search for Elvis' or something."

A fifth instalment in the franchise is still purely hypothetical, though Lucas is supposedly reseaching a new story for the fifth installment.

"We are looking for something for him to go after," Lucas said. "They are very hard to find. It's like archeology. It takes a huge amount of research to come up with something that will fit."
