Coming Soon: Indiana Jones 4!

In case you haven't heard, Indiana Jones will be swinging his way back to the silver screen some time in 2008. The working title is Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods. Cate Blanchett and Shia LaBoeuff have signed on along with Harrison Ford. A few paparazzi shots of production:

To what does the City of the Gods refer, you may ask?

Translation: With my limited experience, I can only speculate that the City of the Gods refers to the pre-Columbian city of Teotihuacan in Mexico.

At its cultural zenith during the 1st half of the 1st millennium C.E., Teotihuacan was also referred to as the "birthplace of the gods" and the "place of those who have the road to the gods".

With its Avenue of the Dead and Pyramid of the Sun, I cannot imagine a more perfect location for an Indiana Jones adventure.

Who are these Gods?

Interstellar travelers that harbored an unimaginably powerful secret that threatens to destroy all mankind? A likely plot line.

The Avenue of the Dead and the Pyramid of the Sun (background, left).

In all, I guess we're going to have to wait to learn about Indiana's next adventure.

Translation: It's gonna be SWEET!

Hey, that Harrison Ford can run about wherever he likes, I'll watch him!
Ahem, but of course it would be interesting if he had the backdrop of the Avenue of the Dead.....

Some of these pictures hint at an atomic or cold-war theme. Not supernatural enough for Indiana Jones, maybe. But maybe they're just to set the '50's scene.
