Mutt not fit to oil Indie’s whip

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

It all seemed so ob­vi­ous. The clos­ing mo­ments of In­di­ana Jones and the King­dom of the Crys­tal Skull ap­peared to make it fairly clear that, de­spite In­di­ana’s re­luc­tance to hand over his hat, Shia LaBeouf’s Mutt Wil­liams was set to be­come the hero of any fu­ture se­quels. But Ge­orge Lu­cas, the se­ries’ pro­ducer and co-writer, ap­pears to think oth­er­wise.

“In­di­ana Jones is In­di­ana Jones. Har­ri­son Ford is In­di­ana Jones,” Mr Beardy No-Neck said dur­ing an in­ter­view to pro­mote this week’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars (see re­view, page 12). “If it was Mutt Wil­liams it would be Mutt Wil­liams and the Search for Elvis or some­thing.”

Ooo! Touchy, touchy. Lu­cas did, how­ever, con­firm that a fifth movie is a pos­si­bil­ity. “We are look­ing for some­thing for [Jones] to go af­ter,” Lu­cas said. “They are very hard to find. It’s like ar­chae­ol­ogy. It takes a huge amount of re­search to come up with some­thing that will fit.”

How about a pipe, a comfy arm­chair and a boxed set of Mur­der She Wrote? (He’s so old, you see.)
