: My memory isn't what it used to be, but I thought Lucas was the main one vetoing the Darabont script. When Spielberg says "my producer didn't like the script as much as I did," I'm guessing he is referring to Lucas who is an Executive Producer.
Here's some corroborating evidence. At least Darabont blames Lucas. Here's the quote:
The short and simple version of the Indiana Jones 4 situation is that after more than a year of working closely with Steven Spielberg developing the story, I had completed a screenplay that Steven loved and was hoping to shoot in July of this year. However, George Lucas had issues with the script and slammed on the brakes in order to rework the material himself. There is talk of enlisting another writer. Given that George is the producer, but even moreso because of their long and close friendship, Steven is deferring to George in this situation.
