Well guys, I've been watching this forum since its creation and I'm shocked how reckless the Indyfans can be - just like your favourite hero. You all speculate on stupid things like Shangri-La and Kukuri but you never - NEVER! - mention that you HAVE the real script. I mean the Sons of Darkness. And if you know nothing, let me tell you:
Back in 1995 George Lucas wrote a story which was based on Noah's Ark legend. Lucasfilm hired Jeb Stewart to write a script, but the latter turned in something awful - Turkish soldiers versus Indy in quest of the Ark. Then they hired Jeff Boam of Crusade fame to rewrite the script. The first thing what Boam did was that he traveled to Turkey and lived there for almost a month. Then he wrote the Sons of Darkness. The one which you all have is just a first draft from him which afterwards was revised four(!) times. Boam was asked to make Stalin a villain (a secret leader of the Sect), to reduce the role of Abner and introduce Henry again. Boam was also to change the characters' names, to "upgrade" Captain Vladimirov to Major, etc. He had a lot of problems from the Turkish Cultural Society in the USA - the one which actually arranged his trip to Dogubeyazit - because of just mantioning Armenians in the script. Boam removed also that. Mark Hammil was asked to play Vladimirov and Antony Hopkins - Joseph Stalin.
I am really amazed how you swallow those stupid disinformation which is coming from you know who. I agree that Lucasfilm is watching this site veeery attentively and I even know that some of the characters in this forum are just their spies. This guy Ultra Seven is I presume a pen-name of some Lucasfilm rat who has been assigned just to spoil and mislead the forum. This Dentman too. And that guy Irakli who allegedly wrote the script - he does not exist at all! His site is all just fiction!
If you all knew WHERE I work, you will all faint.
See you all on Sons of Darkness Premiere!
