Steven Spielberg wasn’t exactly thrilled with the inclusion of certain fantastic elements – such as aliens – in the fourth installment of Indiana Jones.
Of course, George Lucas, the film’s creator and producer, thought they were no different from the fantastic elements he added to the other three Indy films.
However, despite their differences of opinion, Speilberg said he still enjoyed making the film.
“I’m really proud of the movie,” he told Entertainment Weekly during a recent interview with the publication.
“I am best friends with George and I’m very obedient to the stories that he writes. I’ll fight things I don’t believe in but ultimately if George wants to bring interdimensional beings into Crystal Skull, I will do the best job I possibly can to acquit George’s idea and make him proud.”
Spielberg also confirmed he would be willing to do another film, despite the conflict, and the critical panning that the third film got, saying that the decision was ultimately up to George Lucas.
“We have already agreed on the genre of the fifth movie, we already have a concept in mind. I don’t know where George is with the story. There is no Indy 5 until George says there is.”
He made no mention of whether veteran actor Harrison Ford, the star of the first four films, would return to play Indy, or if, as has been rumored, the younger Shia LaBeouf will take over as the protagonist of the series.
