We’re not sure why anybody trusts anything printed by ShowbizSpy, but we suppose it’s the slow pre-Christmas week — and perhaps some geek sites let the egg nog get to their head. But according to quotes from a probably made up “insider” ShowbizSpy claimed that Harrison Ford wants Indiana Jones to die in a fifth film, allowing the torch to be passed to a new whip cracking hero.
However, actual news site Huffington Post, reached out to reps for the action star who have denied those claims, calling the ShowbizSpy report “false.” Yeah, that figures. ShowbizSpy is a weird mix of actual news and just plain made up stuff based on sources that don’t seem to have any actual connection to the talent they’re talking about.
Now, has the idea of a fifth installment been batted around? Definitely. Earlier in the year Ford revealed that he, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have come up with an idea for a fifth outing and lord knows, if the nearly seventy-year-old Ford can still walk and sneer, they’ll do their damndest to make another one. ShowbizSpy has also claimed that Harrison Ford was recently carded trying to buy beer (seriously). WikiLeaks is currently investigating.
