You have got to be kidding me.
After years of waiting for a script to arrive, Variety reports that the Big Three were unable to agree on it when it finally did. (It was Lucas!) Another writer is now expected to work up a new draft of the script. This will likely result in production being pushed back until 2005 (at the earliest), for release in 2006.
Dark Horizons offers a bit more on the story, which, if true, confirms a long-rumoured subplot:
"Darabont has been ordered to rewrite it, one of the elements he apparently didn't go for was a sub-plot involving Indy's brother. The brother is still going to be in it, but not as much a focus as in the current script. There needs to be more dimension to the character as well. Apparently Kevin Costner has talked to Spielberg too - but I don't know if he's in it".
Personally, I'm surprised this hasn't been reported sooner here...and by that I mean I hope Sean hasn't tried to hurt himself over this! :-)
