We Named the Dog Indiana

While Star Wars is currently the rage when it comes to all-things-Lucas, there have been rumblings in the background once again about Indiana Jones IV. Christianity Today’s movie website picks up on reports that the film is close to production.

I’ll believe it when I see it. The Indiana Jones trilogy, The Temple of Doom notwithstanding, have long been my favorite movies. While not necessarily the best films I’ve ever seen, they’re still my favorite for a variety of reasons—mostly just because they’re so much fun. I remember following the internet rumors about 10 years ago (take a look at the archives of this website) about a possible fourth installment of Indiana Jones. Back then, it was only a scheduling problem, which seems to be the major hold-up now. One would think that after so many years of speculation, the rumor mills would let this one die.

As a certain fedora-clad archaeologist once said, “It’s not the years, honey. It’s the mileage.”
