LucasFilm Rumored to Have Developed Indy 5 Just to Secure Ford for Star Wars 0

There are rumors floating around that the 5th installment in the Indiana Jones movie franchise is merely a deal struck in order to secure Harrison Ford’s participation for Star Wars: Episode VII. The rumor came from The Daily Superhero, which suggests that a guarantee of starring in one more Indy film is part of the deal that convinced Harrison Ford to sign up for another Star Wars outing.

One of the things that make the rumor believable is the fact that LucasFilm is developing Indy 5 so soon after the last installment, which was poorly received – something that and have resulted in the franchise being shelved for a while by most studios, and probably by LucasFilm as well.
