This strikes me as rather naïve. When has SJW casting ever resulted in an improvement...even for things that were subpar?

It was worse than "subpar"

I don't have high hopes if Kennedy is associated with it

Phoebe Waller Bridge is awesome, so if it was in someone elses hands, I might be intrigued, but otherwise, I'll set my expectations as the bottom, which is exactly how I view Crystal Skull

Why not just make a new franchise with a female archaeologist who adventures? This relabeling of stuff is weak and tanks movies.

But the problems with Crystal Skull weren't because of Harrison Ford, were they? I haven't seen it because of literally everyone's reaction so I don't know.

I kind of enjoyed The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles


I actually never watched that, but if it was in the vain of the opening scene of Last Crusade with River Phoenix, then I'll allow it.

Women already have their own Indiana Jones.

Why did we have all those Tomb Raider movies?

Powerful women in Hollywood can't be happy to have their own things.

They have to take everything from males.

I thought this was announced like 6 months ago.

I'm against it, but Waller-Bridge was fairly solid in Fleabag. Not sure how she would hold up to an action/adventure/comedy role though.

Someone in another thread made a good point I thought. Instead of rebooting things that have already been done, how about Hollywood come up with some new ideas and material?

I don't know if they'll ever get fully back to that. It costs so much to make a widely distributed movie, even without special effects, that most companies won't roll the dice on something without a built-in fanbase. A movie with really good effects can cost 150-200 million; hard to give that kind of cash out in the hopes that a "never heard of" strikes it big.

Not saying that justifies what they're doing, but just one of the reasons that they do. I mean, we get remakes where they don't change the race/gender of the protagonist as well, and they're hit or miss financially.

Dredd (2012) - Great movie, poor box office
Robocop (2014) - Okay movie, did not make enough cash

There's probably more, but I'm lazy

a conclusion to the adventures of Harrison Ford's intrepid archaeologist and will set up a character to take his place, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge reportedly being eyed to become to the new face of the Indiana Jones series going forward.

Not going to happen. But they're sure getting brownie points for the rumor and as a bonus are pissing the shite off of you guys.

Hard to believe the thread went this far before someone pointed this out.

shite. You guys let yourselves get ramped up by the most obvious clickbait nowadays.

Oh and River Phoenix would've taken over as Indiana Jones and made everyone forget Ford and that's why Ford had him killed.
