Roger Friedman of Fox411 caught up with George Lucas who was attending at the "all-star Time magazine dinner for the 100 most influential people" and here are some snippets of what he said about Star Wars and Indiana Jones:
Lucas is currently preparing Indiana Jones 4 with Harrison Ford, Blanchett and Shia LaBoeuf. The latter plays Ford's son, which means his mother was possibly the character Karen Allen played in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
"I can't say," Lucas said when I brought up Allen.
Lucas says that Sean Connery still hasn't signed on, but his character, Indy's dad, is in the script. Other than that, his lips are sealed.
"Steven thinks we can keep the whole thing a secret," Lucas told me. "I explained to him that it's impossible nowadays. We can't live like that."
Lucas, by the way, says he is readying Clone Wars, an animated series for TV that's derived from Star Wars. Many Star Wars characters appear in Clone Wars, but voiced by other actors.
And here's a little news: Lucas tells me he will make two more live-action films based in the Star Wars era.
"But they won't have members of the Skywalker family as characters," he said. "They will be other people of that milieu."
The two extra films will also be made for TV and probably be an hour long each. But, like Clone Wars, Lucas doesn't know where on TV they will land.
Indiana Jones 4 arrives in theatres on May 22nd, 2008.
