If Adventure Had A Different Name...
When we all heard there was going to be a fourth Indy picture nobody knew what it was going to be called until Lucasfilm registered several names to control the copyright.
We could then narrow the field of what it was called and hopefully get an idea as to what the story would be about...
Those names were:
* Indiana Jones and the City of Gods
* Indiana Jones and the Destroyer of Worlds
* Indiana Jones and the Fourth Corner of the Earth
* Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
* Indiana Jones and the Lost City of Gold
* Indiana Jones and the Quest for the Covenant
Pretty swanky names don't you think? I think that Lucas chose the least desirable of those names for the title... perhaps he was trying to tell us something?
What most people don't know is that Lucas commissioned quite a number of scripts for another Indy film before he finally decided that "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was the right one...
Ever wonder if he was right to chose IJATKOTCS instead of one of these other scripts?
I'm going to be posting a synopsis of each of these scripts that George Lucas commissioned as a possible idea for Indy 4 in the coming weeks.
