I don't think Indy 4 will ever be made. I just hope that my prediction is wrong. ;)
But hey - It won't be the same Indiana Jones anymore no matter how much ones think the script qualities are. Mr. Ford is not as a young adventurous rogue anymore. Best thing is to leave Indiana riding off into his sunset. And keeps our memory of him unbarnish.
At my last research, not two but three main party ( Ford, Spelbierg. Lucas') Will not have the time nor the schedule to bring fruitation to the next series. Mr. Ford's age is getting closer to 60. unless they can pull it off next year when he is 56 even then Ford still has 3 more movies which are already booked all the way to the year 2000. Lucas will be busy with his Star Wars prequels, and Steven will be too busy bringing his Dreamworks SKG into light. Of all that said, it is still unlikely that Harrison can re-carry the character to whom who all know as Indiana Jones at his age. Unless of course a real drastic change-over from his role is released to other younger actor. Ford is fond of Brad Pit - I think Brad or Michael Bien ( Terminator, Aliens 2) should be the only two that can replace Ford, If it must - ( Batman or James Bond anyone? - NOT!!) Not that the series would be popular as it was with Harrison. Indiana Jones is - Harrison Ford period. without him there is no I.J.
Harrison Ford is also - Blade Runner, which is why Ridley Scott is fighting from the studio heads of making a direct sequel. Mr. Ford is irreplaceable. That's IMHO.
Just my 2 cent - And If I am wrong - I will be the first in line! ;)
