Indy 5: This Is Us Creator Rumored To Be Writing Film

Indiana Jones 5 news

When last we heard about the long-gestating, untitled Indiana Jones 5 was being written by Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Jon Kasdan. It was an inspired choice, but it looks like that won’t be the case anymore — if this new rumor is to be believed. Though, while this is a rumor, I have to mention that the sources they’re using also told Making Star Wars about the writers behind Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which all turned out to be true. But, as with all rumors, take it with a grain of salt.

According to the outlet, Dan Fogelman, the creator of This is Us and writer of movies like Tangled and Crazy, Stupid Love, has taken over on writing duties. But is he working on the same story that Kasdan was working on or is it something new? The outlet states their sources believe it is an all-new idea, though they have no idea what it will consist of.

For reference, this is the idea Kasdan was reportedly working on:

“Jon Kasdan was working on focused on the Wałbrzych Gold Train legend. Supposedly, a train full of Nazi gold went missing near the Polish city of Wałbrzych. The train departed from Breslau with gold, masterpieces, weapons and other unknown priceless artifacts. It was then hidden in a series of mines dug by the Nazis.”

So, if you liked this idea, it looks like chances are it ain’t happening, as Kasdan has shifted over to a Willow TV series instead.

Do you think this change in writers is a good idea? Let us know down below!
