Disney continues its quest to own everything most people enjoy with Indiana Jones. Reaching a distribution deal with Paramount, Disney now owns future rights to every future Indiana Jones film (with Paramount still making a small sum off of each of them) while Paramount will own the rights to the previous four. Although there’s no set confirmation of a fifth Indy movie, you’d be crazy to think Disney would make a deal like this and not capitalize on it.
Expect them to pull a Star Wars: Episode VII and announce Indiana Jones and the Incontinence Problem in the near future given that both Spielberg and Harrison Ford expressed interest in another one despite Ford being a sad and craggly senior citizen.[via Variety]
