: With the current publicity around China and Tibet...would it be
: possible that George and Steven will make the Chinese the big
: badguys in Indy 4 (instead of the Russians)...?
: I remember seeing some footage in which Harrison Ford talked
: about the situation in Tibet, and since he had to approve the
: script it could be possible...
: It's a good question. I guess it would all depend on the time frame. If it was the '30s to '45, the Japanese were definitely the bad guys in Asia. In Temple of Doom, Indy cites the Japanese bombing of Shanghai as the reason Short Round's parents were killed.
On the other hand, if it's the mid '40s through the '50s, you would have the rise of Chinese communism and then there's always big, bad Boris the Russian to contend with. There's a lot of possibilities to explore here. -MP
