George to Harrison: Simmer down!

George Lucas responds to Harrison Ford’s Indy 4 comments. (Which everyone is calling an ‘ultimatium’. Sorry, but “If it doesn’t happen in the next two years we should all forget it” is not an ultimatium. Unless he was holding a weapon at the time.) According to MTV, Lucas says:

“We just keep working on it,” shrugged series writer/producer George Lucas. “You know, we just write and write and write and write and write. But we are getting closer, and hopefully this year we will have a start date and we will have a script that we all love and hopefully it will come out next year.” Lucas added that Jeff Nathanson (“Catch Me if You Can”) is the newest addition to a pile of screenwriters bigger than the Cairo swordsman’s weapon of choice.

So, you know, definitely maybe.
