: Do you realize that this means there is finally a script?!!
: If nothing else, that, in and of itself, is the end of an era.
But then what will we have to complain about? Hopefully Harrison Ford will like the script so that the long-awaited project can finally move forward.
Even if (hopefully will soon become "when") filming for Indy IV finally begins, my main concern is that with it being the first Indiana Jones movie to be filmed during the internet age, that it'll be almost impossible for the film to surprise and wow the general public with all the script and photo leaks that'll undoubtedly be available.
Though one thing going in the Indiana Jones franchise's favor over George Lucas' other famous movie franchise is that each Indy movie, novel, etc. is a truly self-contained story. Except in some very rare cases, no one has to worry that the upcoming Indy movie will contradict or invalidate anything that has been seen, read or imagined about our intrepid archeologist/professor in the past twenty or so years since the last movie hit theaters (while some fans have complained that The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles TV-series actually had little direct involvement with the movies, in the long-run that actually may have been a blessing in disguise - and the TV-series was quite good on its own merits). This certainly hasn't been the case with Star Wars.
