With George Lucas rejecting the last script from Frank Darabont, Lucas and director Steven Spielberg have hired CATCH ME IF YOU CAN/THE TERMINAL scribe Jeff Nathanson to take a crack at penning the fourth installment of INDIANA JONES, reports VARIETY.
Whether or not the decade-in-the-works production will go in front of cameras anytime soon is up in the air. Nathansons script needs to get an okay from Lucas, Spielberg and star Harrison Ford. Spielberg is filming WAR OF THE WORLDS and plans to follow up that event pic with a film about the aftermath of the 1972 Munich Olympics terrorist tragedy. Ford has signed onto the kidnap thriller THE WRONG ELEMENT and the space station set GODSPEED, and Lucas is overseeing the final touches on STAR WARS: EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH.
