Shia LeBeouf Won't Return For Indiana Jones 5

Indiana Jones 5 won't feature Shia LaBeouf's character

"Harrison plays Indiana Jones, that I can certainly say", he told Entertainment Weekly.

Latest reports about the development of "Indiana Jones 5" claimed that Shia LaBeouf will no longer reprise his role and be included in the said film's installment.

"We're plugging away at it", he continues. "In terms of when we would start, I think that's up to Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Ford", he continued. I would have been perfectly happy with no more Indiana Jones films at all, and my trilogy DVD set is all I will ever need in my collection. Koepp said he hopes the new Indiana Jones is Spielberg's next movie after The Post, which recently finished shooting, apparently. Some anxious that Shia LaBeouf's Mutt Williams would be the focus of further Indiana Jones movies, with the end of Crystal Skull teasing his potential in the series. Whether this factored into Shia not returning is up for discussion.

David Koepp was credited with the screenplay for "Crystal Skull" and he's in place for 2020's movie too. He also added that they have gotten a script they are mostly happy with and the work will be endless. "As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete ass of myself". Not only did Crystal Skull leave Indiana Jones fans in pain, LaBeouf and Spielberg reportedly are not a combo as good as peanut butter and jelly. "The one thing I will tell you is I'm not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it", director Steven Spielberg said previously, while Disney's Bob Iger cryptically stated: "Right now, we're focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort". Still riding high after his back-to-back performances in Transformers, LaBeouf was arguably one of the most sought-after rising stars of 2008, before his name was mired in controversy following a string of public meltdowns and altercations.

A new piece of information about the next Indiana Jones movie has come to light.
