I love Indiana Jones.  Love the first three movies, the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles on television, and the comic books.  Just listen to the Major Spoilers Podcast about all things Indy, and it is clear nothing did more in my formative years than Dr. Jones cracking the whip, cracking wise, and cracking the heads of Nazis.

While I liked Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I didn’t care for Mutt Williams (aka Shia LaDoof) one bit.  And the very hint that there might be a Mutt Williams franchise based off of this has me sick to my stomach.  Perhaps the word has filtered to Mr. Lucas, because there’s a buzz that a fifth Indiana Jones movie might become a reality.

Harrison Ford said Friday that momentum is building for a fifth movie in the “Indiana Jones“  franchise and that George Lucas is already cooking up a suitable plot for a heroic senior citizen with a penchant for whips and fedoras.

“It’s crazy but great,” the 66-year-old Ford said. “George is in think mode right now.”

Think wisely, Mr. Lucas.  Think wisely.  Keep Mutt Williams as far away from the next story as possible.

  1. Lifeisaglitch on

    I dont care if Shia gets a franchise with a character i do not care about..BUT KEEP HIM THE FUCK AWAY FROM THE ROLE OF YORRICK!!!

  2. I doubt they can really avoid the character now that he’s been introduced, unless they were planning on killing him off. Chances are, though, that that’s not going to happen and instead he’ll either be a sidekick, or just a walk on walk off (doubtful) in the next… Either way, I think Mutt will more than likely be back…

  3. Personally I think it would be interesting to see if Mutt could go on in his father’s footsteps. I rather like the idea. I hope Lucas goes through with it! I’m excited now. :)
