After all, Sean Patrick Flannery did an excellent job playing the young Indiana Jones in the TV series. Why not let him take over the role and give us a new trilogy set during World War II and tell us about some of those missions that KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL hinted at? Flannery's in his 40's now...young enough to last through a trilogy but old enough to have enough experience to give credibility to his performance.
I'm in full agreement with you, DLF. Great idea. I think once time marches on over the coming decades and Ford passes on, and Lucas and Spielberg pass on, someone will come up with new plots, adventures and actors, but the same character and setting. There is simply too much money to be made on this franchise. No one is going to pass it up out of respect for Ford, et al.
Come to think of it, using different actors for James Bond hasn't hurt those movies at all.
If more sane people were armed, the crazy people would get off fewer shots.
