Harrison Ford On Indiana Jones: "When I'm Gone...He's Gone."

There Should Be No Other Indiana Jones Says Harrison Ford.

"Nobody is going to be Indiana Jones, don't you get it?...I'm Indiana Jones. When I'm gone, he's gone. It's easy."  Those are the words of Harrison Ford explaining to host, Craig Melvin on American day time show, "Today."

Ford also joked that "this is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine...I'm sorry, man!"  Obviously Ford was getting his Chris's mixed up there as it has been mentioned in the past that Chris Pratt would be suitable for the Indy role not Chris Pine.  Or was it?  Is this some kind of knowledge that Ford has heard through the Hollywood grapevine?  No, I jest...Or do I?

Well, the good news is that Indiana Jones isn't dead yet as a fifth one has been confirmed with Steven Spielberg at the director's helm and slated for a summer 2012 release.

Do you agree with Ford?  Do you think there should be no other Indiana Jones after Ford gives up the whip and hat?  Or would you like to see the legacy of the Jones's continue?  Are we taking it too literal?  Maybe he specifically means his character and not the franchise. Let us know in the comments.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
