Completely Shocking Movie News:

So, a year ago, Frank Darabont, the maker of such fine films as The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Majestic was commissioned by George Lucas to write the script for Indiana Jones 4. Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford both said, "Great choice!" The geeks of the world said "Great Choice!" because Darabont got his start writing The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles TV show. There was no one better to write the script.

Here we are, one year later, and after toiling endlessly, Darabont finally turned in the finished script to George Lucas. Darabont said, "It's in God's hands now, or rather George's and Steven's."

Today, it was revelaed that George Lucas took one look at Darabont's screenplay and said, "This SUCKS!"

Darabont's script has been scrapped and Indiana Jones 4 is starting all over from scratch. It is now highly doubtful that Indy 4 will come out in Summer 2005 as originally hoped.

Darabont has gone back to what he was doing before he was working on Indy: a new film version of Farenheight 451.

Next Issue...All Hopes on Episode III
