Fifth INDIANA JONES movie... is REALLY happening?!

So sayeth Harrison Ford, adding that he's already getting in shape and that work on a new Indy movie has progressed further than most of us have suspected...
"The story for the new 'Indiana Jones' is in the process of taking form," Ford told France's Le Figaro. "Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and myself are agreed on what the fifth adventure will concern, and George is actively at work. If the script is good, I'll be very happy to put the costume on again."
Others may disagree, but I thought last year's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a fine addition to the Indy mythos. That and that it was as good a homage to Fifties B-movies as Raiders of the Lost Ark was a tribute to the Saturday serials of yesteryear. With that in mind, I'll gladly welcome another Indiana Jones movie (and maybe even one more if Ford is up to it :-)

Yeah, I saw Crystal Skull for the first time in July when I was up in Connecticut at my uncle's. When I finished watching I was like, "This wasn't a bad movie. What movie did everyone else see?"

I too had heard the bad reviews and the "nuke the fridge" comments, but when taken in the style it was aimed at (classic 50's B-Movies) - it was definitely an enjoyable time spent...my whole family liked it. :)
