Steven Spielberg Working on ‘Jurassic Park 4,’ ‘Indiana Jones 5′

VALERY HACHE/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Could another Jurassic Park or Indiana Jones flick be in the works?

Steven Spielberg indicates both could happen. In a new interview with Empire magazine, Spielberg revealed that screenwriter Mark Protosevich, known for his scripts for Thor and I Am Legend, is drafting Jurassic Park 4. Spielberg told the magazine it’ll blow 2001′s ill-received Jurassic Park III out of the water. He also said that despite the not-so-favorable reviews of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, he’s down to do Indy 5.

“George [Lucas] is in charge of breaking the stories,” he told Empire. “He’s done it on all four [Indiana Jones] movies. Whether I like the stories or not, George has broken all the stories. He is working on Indy V. We haven’t gone to screenplay yet, but he’s working on the story. I’ll leave it to George to come up with a good story.”

Action fans, rejoice.

Spielberg, Ford 'Hopeful' for an 'Indy 5,' Diss 'Crystal Skull'

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- At a screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark in Los Angeles Tuesday night, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford again admitted they'd like to make a fifth Indiana Jones adventure -- and the pair also took shots at the much-maligned but super-successful Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

When a particularly enthusiastic audience member hooted at the prospect of Indy 5, Moviefone.com reports the director said, "I think that's the one [fan] we didn't alienate with the fourth." Ford also took a dig at Crystal Skull, by saying a fifth Indy adventure wouldn't be continuing the fourth film's scorned UFO-centric plot, saying Indy next time "ain't going to Mars."

Jabs aside, Crystal Skull was a global blockbuster, taking in more than $780 million worldwide, and both men certainly seem like they want another shot at the Man in the Hat. Ford said, "Next time we get a script for Indiana Jones, I'd be delighted to play the character."
