Steven Spielberg says
that he and George Lucas have been working on “Indiana Jones 5,” and have been able to come up with a general idea for the new film.
NY Mag has now caught up with Lucas to get an update.
“I told [Spielberg] about the story, but I really haven’t found the MacGuffin yet,” he said. “I mean, I know what it’s about, but I just have to find a MacGuffin that fits into the arena we’re working in.“
For those not familiar with the term, a MacGuffin is a narrative element that drives the story forward. The “Indiana Jones” franchise already had the Ark of the Covenant, the Sankara Stone, the Holy Grail and the Crystal Skull.
Until Lucas figures out the object that Indy will be searching, the fifth movie will not happen.
