George on (more) Indy sequels and The Clone Wars

Fox News caught up with George at Cannes and he says there’s a strong possibility for sequels. With, as many have been contemplating, Shia LeBeouf in the lead. Oh, George, you crazy diamond.

Next up, The Clone Wars and why it’s not being released by Fox:

“No one wanted it,” he told me. “Every studio rejected it, including Fox, and I’m very loyal to them. They have right of first refusal. Eventually I brought it to Warners. It’s the first time that three components of the studio have acted together. It’s very exciting.

Bootlegged! New Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull trailer

This one is old school camera-in-the-theatre bootleg, not semi-decent quality like the Polish The Clone Wars one, but you can watch it over at io9 regardless. It’s quite a bit more descriptive than anything we’ve seen thus far, so if you’re spoiler-free or want to wait for the real thing, best sit this one out.

Second Indy trailer on Iron Man, Indy’s role examined, and more

Like no one saw this coming: the second trailer for Indiana Jones and the Crystal King of Skulldom will be coming out on Paramount’s Iron Man on May 1 (which is being pushed forward 4 hours – from a midnight show to 8 pm showings). And the most important news about the Indy IV trailer: It’s 1 minute and 49 seconds. Apparently, they plan to stretch the whole movie out to 2 hours, 20 minutes.
