Harrison Ford wants to make an 'Indiana Jones 5'




Some things are simply a bad idea: Hydrogen-filled zeppelins. Land wars in Asia. A fifth Indiana Jones movie. Guess which one of those Harrison Ford wants to foist upon us.

The 68-year-old actor says he'd dig another installment, since the last one he made with producer George Lucas and director Steven Spielberg turned out so freakin' great: "If there's something that the three of us can agree on then I'd love to do it. George is working on something but I haven't seen anything on paper," he told "We've talked a little bit about it. It would be fun, I'd love to do it."

But not only can he not let Indy go, he wants to bring Sean Connery down with him, as long as the 80-year-old Scot is willing to reprise his role as Indy's dad. Hey, they did both drink from the Holy Grail.

"Everyone is keen to get Sean back as Professor Henry Jones Senior. They wanted him back for the last movie," a source said. "Everyone's hopeful he'll agree to reprise the role even in a small way. I hear Harrison Ford has been sending gifts to try to convince him. I think he could go for it. It would be on his terms."

We really, really can't get behind this. Any time a movie popularizes the phrase "nuking the fridge," that's a pretty good sign you shouldn't make any more of those movies.
