Indiana Jones 5
Producer Frank Marshall has shot down the recent “Indiana Jones 5” talk, posting a comment on his Twitter account saying “The rumor about Indy 5 is completely false. Nothing has changed, we are not shooting next year and still in the research phase.”
Plans to shoot part of the action of in Washington, D.C. are being met with resistance by National Park Service authorities reports The Washington Post
According to reports, the plans were to shoot sequences that included “simulated explosions and pyrotechnics at locations along Pennsylvania and Independence avenues”
Thus the authorities are understandably nervous about staging massive explosions so close to the country’s seats of power.
