  • David Koepp Taken Onboard to Write the Script for Indiana Jones 5

David Koepp has been announced to write the script for the already announced fifth instalment of the Indiana Jones franchise.

Good news for all the Indiana Jones fans around the world. If you didn’t know already, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford had already revealed that the fifth installment of the archaeologist based 1980’s hit Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark is in the works already.

The concept of the story was decided by Spielberg and George Lucas back in 2011. The decision was announced in Vulture by Lucas.

As of late, Ford did confirm that he would be reprising his role as Indiana Jones once more. So the remaining question that was in everyone’s mind was who will be writing the script. 

Of course the best choice would be someone who had already participated in the Indiana Jones franchise and someone who had on hand experience with Spielberg and Lucas both.

After much consideration, David Koepp has been announced as the script writer for the Indiana Jones 5. According to THR, the title remains to be determined but this is a step forward in the direction of making the movie constructively.

We all know that the previous movie had a lot of special effects and the concept was developed by George Lucas. 

This time Indiana Jones is a challenge especially in incorporating Harrison Ford’s age in the movie. He will be 77 in 2019 when the movie is set to release.

The story’s premises and just how much creative control will Lucas have on this part since his ideas were shot down by the Star Wars franchise for The Force Awakens. 

While the fans and the production are all busy with these questions, Koepp’s hiring has been praised by many as he has written some great scripts for movies including Spider Man, War of the Worlds and Jurassic Park.

This will be the fifth movie in the franchise followed by the four movies namely Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull respectively.
