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, 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."
