Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat, so desperate for Indiana Jones film developments that I’ll believe anything. Like that Bradley Cooper is going to don the fedora next (even though I speak for everyone when I say fedoras are totally done-zo.) Or that Frank Darabont, the guy who was involved with The Walking Dead for about fifteen minutes, is writing a script.
Complete and utter horseshit. All of it. The former has been refuted by Frank Marshall, who has produced all four of the earlier Indiana Jones films.
Due to the ridiculous rumors that keep popping up, like agents pipe dreams, I will stop commenting on our projects until I have real news.

So HE’S the son of a bitch who snagged the “LeDoctor” Twitter handle out from under me. See you in hell, Marshall.
Then Darabont said to Ain’t It Cool News, “I have not pitched an idea for a proposed Indiana Jones movie, nor has anybody approached me with such an idea. The inaccurate report on Latino Review was the first I’d heard of it.”
But Darabont didn’t use Twitter to make the announcement, so it might as well have been made by a town cryer with a kerosene lamp on a cobblestone street. Luddite.
So let’s all just chill out and keep bitching about Crystal Skull until this sorts itself out.
