We’re in Serious Danger of Getting an Indiana Jones 5

Weep and despair, because Shia the Beef — currently touring to promote the scrappy indie film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen — told the BBC that?”Steven [Spielberg] just said that he cracked the story on it before I left and I think they’re gearing that up.”
I don’t know whether to shit my pants in fear or be cautiously optimistic, and I’ll explain why — ?the biggest problem with Crystal Skull was George Lucas’ mind-shatteringly awful plot, which called for nuked fridges, the Beef becoming king of the monkeys, and intensely powerful aliens who couldn’t find a crystal skull but wanted to leave within 30 seconds of having returned to them. If Indy 5 is mainly Spielberg’s story, as the Beef is intimating, then maybe we have a chance of the film not featuring Harrison Ford and the Beef painting a tunnel on a mountainside so that the bad guys drive their jeep into it, Wile E. Coyote style.
On the other hand, Indy 4 was held-up for years because the script — which many excellent writers took a crack at over the years — didn’t meet with Lucas’ approval, and yet what ended up as Crystal Skull somehow did. The only reason he would back off for #5 is because he admits that Crystal Skull was a mess, and I don’t see that happening. So… yeah. I think I’m going to shit my pants in fear now.
