: : : : : I heard on the radio the other day some Indy 4 news. It was most of the same old junk but with something new. They mentioned the "Raiders of the Fallen Empire" title and the Mark Hamill/villain blurb. They said that both Ford and Connery had signed to do the picture, Ford charging $45 million for it.
: : : : : We've heard it all before, but has anyone heard a price tag for Ford mentioned yet?
: : : : : Thought you'd like to know,
: : : : : Indy
: : : : First I've heard of Ford asking $45 million. I knew he was on the $20 million list, but isn't 45 a tad pricey? I mean "Raider's" was released on a budget of 10 (limited by Spilberg's demand) , and that is by far the best of the series.

: : Oh, they make that much. But it isn't all profit, I don't think. Anyway, all I meant was that considering what he used to work for, and his supposed enthusiasm for the role (he'd do it again "...in a New York minute", his own words to Barbra Walters on a 20/20 interview) I'd think Spielberg could actually get him for less.

: What hell is all this BS about Ford requesting $40,000,000 to do Indy IV. $20,000,000 sounds fine to me, thanks. The initial budget, when we don't include cast & crew, will probably be in the fifty to a hundred million. Say, I just thought of something. Don't worry; it'll be in my next post...two things actually.
Crap. I just saw I posted the same thing three times. Sorry guys and gals.
