According to Entertainment Weekly, “In return for the rights, Paramount will receive ‘financial participation on any future films.’ In other words, the studio will still get an undisclosed cut of the business. Paramount will retain distribution rights for the first four films in the series.”
There are no plans for Indy to return to the big screen any time soon nor do we know if Harrison Ford would reprise his iconic role. This acquisition will no doubt make it easier for another film to be made but will it be a reboot or a continuation from the last film (“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”)? And how many might there be?
Is there an actor you could think of that could replace Ford’s fedora? Would a reboot of the original be preferable? Will there be a resurgence of Indy-themed toys available for us to buy lots and lots of? Let us know your thoughts!
