Steven Soderbergh Recuts ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ as Silent Film

While it may be some time before we see a new film from "retired" director Steven Soderbergh, his latest experiment on the website Extension765.com may be the closest thing we get. The filmmaker posted a new black and white "silent" cut of the 1981 classic Raiders of the Lost Ark, which has absolutely no dialogue, but does feature music from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross scores for The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Earlier this year, he cut together mash-ups of both the original version of Psycho and the 1998 remake on the website.

‘Raiders!’ Will Tell the Story Behind Infamous ‘Indiana Jones’ Fan Film

While it isn't certain if fans will ever get to see Indiana Jones 5, Jeremy Coon (Napoleon Dynamite) is bringing another Indiana Jones story to the big screen. The producer has optioned Alan Eisenstock's book Raiders!, which tells the true story of two Mississippi kids who made a shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Over the course of seven years, Mississippi friends Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala set out to make a shot-for-shot remake of the 1981 classic, starting production at age 11 and finishing when they were 18. The film, entitled Raiders of the Lost Ark - The Adaptation, wrapped production in 1989, and was forgotten about until filmmaker Eli Roth got a hold of a copy. He relayed it to Steven Spielberg, who congratulated the young filmmakers on their work.
