Creator George Lucas isn’t involved with the story for Indiana Jones 5.
Screenwriter David Koepp, who’s writing the fifth film in the series and also penned Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, told Collider he’s not working with Lucas.
“He’s not, to my knowledge
,” Koepp said. “I’ve had no contact with him.”
It’s a notable departure for the franchise, as Lucas has helped create the story for the four previous Indiana Jones films. Back in March, Disney and Lucasfilm also didn’t list Lucas as a contributor when officially announcing Indy 5.
