The Tem­ple of Doom is Spiel­berg’s least fa­vorite movie in In­di­ana Jones fran­chise

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

In­di­ana Jones and The Tem­ple of Doom, is Steven Spiel­berg’s least fa­vorite movie in the fran­chise. The ad­ven­ture fran­chise - which stars Har­ri­son Ford in the tit­u­lar role - first aired in 1981 with ‘Raiders of The Lost Ark’ but the 1984 se­quel is the least pop­u­lar with its ac­claimed di­rec­tor, ac­cord­ing to doc­u­men­tar­ian Su­san Lacy. Lacy has spent over 30 hours in­ter­view­ing the film­maker for her forth­com­ing doc­u­men­tary ‘Spiel­berg,’ to be re­leased on Oc­to­ber 7 on HBO, and re­vealed the fact at the Tele­vi­sion Crit­ics As­so­ci­a­tion’s sum­mer meet­ing, ac­cord­ing to NYDai­lyNews.com. Mean­while, ‘In­di­ana Jones 5’ be re­leased on July 19, 2019, 11 years af­ter the fourth movie ‘In­di­ana Jones and the King­dom of the Crys­tal Skull’ was re­leased. Dis­ney chair­man Alan Horn con­firmed in a state­ment: “In­di­ana Jones is one of the great­est he­roes in cin­e­matic his­tory, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019. “It’s rare to have such a per­fect com­bi­na­tion of di­rec­tor, pro­duc­ers, ac­tor and role, and we couldn’t be more ex­cited to em­bark on this ad­ven­ture with Har­ri­son and Steven.” It also marks the first time the film fran­chise has been un­der the Dis­ney stu­dio la­bel af­ter Lu­cas­film - who owns the fran­chise’s rights - was sold to Dis­ney in 2012. Har­ri­son Ford will reprise his role as the iconic char­ac­ter whilst Spiel­berg will di­rect again, and hus­band and wife duo Frank Mar­shall and Kath­leen Kennedy will pro­duce and John Wil­liams is set to score the film’s theme tune. Spiel­berg has also con­firmed that Ge­orge Lu­cas - who cre­ated the char­ac­ter to pay homage to the ac­tion he­roes of 1930s - will serve as ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer. David Koepp pre­vi­ously re­vealed he has be­gun writ­ing the script for the hotly-an­tic­i­pated movie. He said: “I’m deeply im­mersed as we speak. All I can say is that there’s lots of aliens and Indy dies at the end. “Lots of hid­ing in lead-lined re­frig­er­a­tors, aliens, and he dies. Should go over very well. “I re­ally like our idea; I think it’s clean and sim­ple and makes a lot of sense, and I feel like the writ­ing is go­ing re­ally well.”
