Disney acquires rights to future `Indiana Jones` movies
Los Angeles: Walt Disney Studios has struck a deal with Paramount Pictures, which retains rights to the first four `Indiana Jones` films, to have control over future movies.
Disney which already secured ownership rights to `Indiana Jones` after acquiring Lucasfilm in 2012, now secures marketing and distribution rights for any future installments of the movie franchise, reported Deadline.
Created by George Lucas, the `Indiana Jones` series kicked off with `Raiders of the Lost Ark` in 1981, followed by `The Temple of Doom` in 1984, `The Last Crusade` in 1989, and `Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull` in 2008.
Steven Spielberg directed all the four films with Harrison Ford in the lead.
Paramount will continue holding the distribution rights to the first four Ford-starring adventure films.
The studio will also receive an undisclosed financial share from Disney should any new films be made.
There is no official word for `Indiana Jones V` movie just yet although Ford has expressed in multiple occasions his interest to reprise his role.
