More Indy 5 talk: Here's what we'd like, but what would you?

We reported last summer that the Indiana Jones brain trust has come up with an idea for a fifth installment, and BBC's Newsbeat today confirms again that, yep, they've got an idea.

The site quotes star Harrison Ford as saying that he, director Steven Spielberg and writer George Lucas have come up with a rough outline for the follow-up to the last Indy movie, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

"Steven [Spielberg] and George [Lucas] and I are sort of agreed on a germ of an idea, and we're seeing what comes of it," Ford told the BBC.

He added: "The process works like this. We come to some basic agreement, and then George goes away for a long time and works on it. Then Steven and I get it in some form, some embryonic form. Then if we like it, we start working with George on it, and at some point down the line it's ready and we do it."

Given that it took about 19 years between the third film and the fourth, we're not holding our breath. (FWIW, Ford is now 67 years old.)

But in the spirit of helpfulness, here's some suggestions:

♦No aliens

♦No crystal skulls

♦No lead-lined refrigerators

♦More Karen Allen

♦Cate Blanchett we could go either way on

♦Nazis yes, Commies no

♦We love Shia La Beouf, but please, less Mutt

And you know who'd we'd like to see take over the role of Indy (sacrilege, we know): How about Young Indy himself, Sean Patrick Flanery? At 44, he's about the right age now to play adult Indy.

What do you want to see?
