We'll take "Vaguely but not threateningly ethnic" for $200, Alex.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - boone daniels - 07-11-2018

Ethnically ambiguous, Michael. Ethnic is what a Republican says to win elections.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - MichaelM - 07-11-2018

Sorry! I was trying to mimic what low-key racists would say and got it wrong!


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - bartleby_scriven - 07-11-2018

Although I love the idea of foregrounding Indy as a Guatemalan-Cuban American...

I'm pretty sure an Isaac Indy would just be a white guy. Indy being of Scottish descent, presumably.

Isaac is a good idea. Y'all nuts with this "omg he's so short." Actors ARE short. The tall ones are the exceptions.

Just having a bit of fun. There's the shot of him in TFA when he first runs out of Lor San Tekka's hut and he looks adorably short.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - boone daniels - 07-11-2018

Oh, I was just busting balls. Dude is short, no doubt.

Height-ists.

RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - atomtastic - 07-11-2018

Once you play the King of England, I’m pretty sure you get a lifelong white pass.

Guy looks like he's about 5'5".  Given that Disney apparently doesn't mind height gaps when recasting, he's perfect!


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - Stale Elvis - 07-11-2018

Fuck it - if passing for Indiana Jones means you don't have to look like him, be as tall or as rangy as him, have that Harrison Ford spark and charm and look like you could go toe-to-toe with nazi henchmen, then just cast, oh I dunno someone like Alden Ehrenreich.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - MichaelM - 07-11-2018

For me it's more about having presence, strength, and the ability to project nuance and depth with pulpy plot and dialogue.

None of those have a height requirement attached.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - Stale Elvis - 07-11-2018

Yeah ok. We'll get Toby Jones to play him then.

RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - Overlord - 07-11-2018

LOL ... perfect clip usage.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - Stale Elvis - 07-11-2018

Look at Ford's big cheesy grin and natural sparkle in that clip - we need someone like that. With the same physical presence also.

Almost 40 years later - if you're watching Raiders with a girl she'll will 9 times out of 10 mutter "fucking hell, he's gorgeous". And fuck it, he is - late 70's/early 80's Ford is sexy and swaggery as hell and I don't mind admitting it - and that's part of the Indiana Jones charm. You need someone who perhaps doesn't ape Ford, but possesses the raw masculine qualities he had and then build on top.

Or if you're skewing younger, Ingruber.

**Oscar Isaac? C'mon, son.

****For some reason Joel Kinnaman just occurred to me as an interesting possibility.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - Stale Elvis - 07-11-2018

Jesus Christ, is Chris fucking Pratt the only actor working today?

Give it to an unknown if you have to, but not Pratt.

And not Ingruber. Ever.

Who is charismatic, not a hobbit, and brings physicality to a role while still retaining an "everyman" quality (e.g. not looking like the product of a pirate having mated with an angel)?

There are slim pickings.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - Nooj - 07-11-2018

never ever pratt

Now I want Pratt to play Indy so badly.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - commodorejohn - 07-11-2018

Chris Pratt would be a fine choice to cast in a parody of an Indy film. This does not mean he would be a good choice for actual Indy.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - Stale Elvis - 07-11-2018

Chris Pratt is who you call when Brendan Fraser doesn’t want to renew his Mummy contract.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - Nooj - 07-11-2018

and even THAT doesn't feel right


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - Stale Elvis - 07-11-2018

Just watching GoT - know who’d be a good fit for Indy? Jaime Lannister bloke.

That guy has zero athleticism.  Maybe not the best choice.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - scottieferguson - 07-11-2018

I remember Holloway's name being tossed around back in the Lost days. Could work, but would probably just be Sawyer in a fedora.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - arjen rudd - 07-12-2018

If Holloway simply must play a globe-trotting treasure hunter that constantly runs afoul of supernatural forces, then he should play Gabriel Knight.

I have to admit, Pratt kind of makes sense to me. That picture up there looks like Indiana Jones. But I also know how bad he can be when used incorrectly, as in the Jurassics, and I can’t bring myself to condone it. So fuck it, I say they cast Jesse Plemons. Or that whispy mustache son from Get Out and Twin Peaks. Let’s get weird with it.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - commodorejohn - 07-12-2018

Wait, which extremely eccentric casting choice from Twin Peaks are we talking about?

I mean, I'd be 110% on board with Harry Dean Stanton, but that option is sadly no longer open to us.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - arjen rudd - 07-12-2018

They could CG him into it. The tech’s almost there.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - commodorejohn - 07-12-2018

No computer could ever capture the soul of Stanton. They'd only be able to do his Black Lodge doppelganger.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - arjen rudd - 07-12-2018

God, can you imagine?

‘We’ve decided the only way to properly portray this beloved character is the use of CG technology.

Oh, so you’re de-aging Harrison Ford?

No, we’re going to make him look Harry Dean Stanton, at the age he was when he died’

Frank Marshall spoke briefly about INDY 5 to ComingSoon.Net:

Quote:ComingSoon.net: “Crystal Skull” shot almost entirely in the U.S., so is the idea to broaden the scope of filming this time? 

Frank Marshall: Yes.

CS: How is doing an Indiana Jones movie without George Lucas change the equation?


Marshall:
 I love being with George and having his input, but life changes and we’re moving on. He moved on. We’re very respectful of the original intentions of the movie, certainly Harrison’s character. The serialization of what the original intention was. I’d love to have George there. I love being around George and working with him, obviously. It’ll be a little different, because the ideas are coming from a different place now.


CS: Now that Lucasfilm is moving away from doing a new Star Wars every year, is that freeing Kathy [Kennedy] up to focus more on Indy?


Marshall:
 I hope so. (laughs) Better for me. I don’t know, to be honest. They’re in their own little world over there, obviously shooting Episode IX right now, so we don’t talk about it much. I’m just here trying to get the writers room together.


CS: There’s an actual writers room for Indy?


Marshall:
 Well, I dunno if you’d call it a writers room, but a lot of people that we trust pitch ideas and things. Gathering info.


CS: But it’s Jonathan Kasdan in the lead, right?


Marshall:
 Yeah.

Well, good news about the international filming, but "writers room" is ominous as hell.  I'm still waiting for Spielberg to admit he's not directing this, or that Ford won't actually be in the starring role, or both.


RE: INDIANA JONES and you're actually fucking serious pre-release discussion - carnotaur3 - 10-02-2018

Spielberg tossing ideas around with other people isn't new. I mean, Raiders was a writer's room.
