George Lucas will not be involved with the story for Indiana Jones 5.
David Koepp, who penned Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and is writing the fifth film in the series, told Collider that he’s not working with Lucas for the latest sequel:
“He’s not, to my knowledge [involved with the story]. I’ve had no contact with him.” Koepp said.
Lucas helped create the story for the four previous Indiana Jones films so it’s a surprise to see him uninvolved for the fifth. Disney also didn’t list Lucas as a contributor when they officially announced the movie.
Director Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will return for Indiana Jones 5 which swings into theaters on 19th July 2019.
