Reports continue to be conflicted about a possible Indiana Jones 5 movie, though the latest rumors seem to hint that a highly anticipated film could be slated for 2018.
According to Ain't It Cool News, an anonymous source has claimed that a the new film was being penciled in for the fourth quarter of 2018, though there were no official confirmations or denials from anyone else at Lucasfilm they were able to get in touch with.
While news of a potential film in 2018 would be great for fans who have been speculating and waiting for news about it's potential release for years (the last Indiana Jones project was released in 2008), it comes at the same time that longtime producer for the franchise Frank Marshall claimed that there weren't even talks for the film--and it had never been discussed.
In an interview with Slashflim, Marshall said that not only were rumors Chris Pratt would replace Harrison Ford in the role not a thing, but any rumors about the movie at all were simply just that.
"No, there's been no discussion on that...I mean, we've had no discussions on Indy 5 to date," he said.
The rumors seem to contradict what Marshall's own wife, also a producer, told Vanity Fair just last month however, as she said at the time that a project about the archeology professor would be made some day.
In that interview, Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that a new movie in the franchise "will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I'm not quite sure. We haven't started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it."
