George Lucas Exits “Indiana Jones 5”, Fans Say Hallelujah!

By  | 

The once adored filmmaker George Lucas has turned into a maligned figure for his creative choices in more recent years.

His Midas touch went the way of the dodo back in 1999 when the Star Wars prequels gave us bad scripts, lame CGI and science fiction’s most hated character…Jar Jar Binks.

He was unable to make amends to his reputation when he came up with the story for the much despised Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a feature film many fans thought and disrespected the franchise and proverbially raped their childhoods….an episode of South Park saw fit to satirize that literally.

So it became welcome news after the little anticipated announcement that Indiana Jones 5 was being considered, that George Lucas would no longer being involved…

Reportedly jettisoned for creative differences, which in the eyes of most fans is a very positive development.

Harrison Ford is still slated to star as the title role, despite the fact that he’ll be 75 by the time the film goes into production in the summer of 2017.

But director Steven Spielberg is back, as is the producing duo of Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall…sans George Lucas as executive producer.

So despite helping create the character and franchise, and his former production company LucasFilms bearing the responsibility of the film’s production, George Lucas is no longer in any way shape or form involved in the fifth installment of the series.

One that hopes to be a mea culpa for the disaster that was the fourth installment…and perhaps the positive first step was to cut ties with George Lucas.

It’s only fitting this close to Halloween that Frankenstein has officially turned on its creator.
