Article up on IGN talks about the progress of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, scheduled to come out May 22.
Great news, it’s on schedule, although wouldn’t you expect the producer to tell you that? Of course you would.
This one has something that 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom had, which a lot of people didn’t like – a youthful sidekick. Doom had Short Round, who was much more comic relief than anything else. Annoying little Goonies reject! But this time around, the sidekick is Shia LaBeouf, who’s a bit older and presumably slightly wiser than Short Round ever was. So that’s not terrible.
Plus, Spielberg’s not casting his girlfriend in it. You know what? I’m gonna pretend Temple of Doom never happened. I feel better now.
