In a recent interview, David Koepp revealed the main reason why his and Steven Spielberg's participation in Indiana Jones 5 fell apart. Which was? Apparently the script. According to him, neither Harrison Ford, Disney and the rest of the team managed to agree on the proposal that the screenwriter and famous director had in mind for the new film of the most beloved professor of Archeology in the world.
An internal problem
“I tried a couple of different versions of the script with Steven Spielberg and they all had some good things about them and they all had some things that would not work, which happens. But it was very difficult for everyone to come together and for all the elements – Steven, Harrison Ford, the script and Disney – to come together at the same time. It didn't happen, ”David Koeep revealed during the Indiana Jones 5 interview.

In addition, he also revealed what the big change was like when Steven Spielberg left the project and the new director entered: “When James Mangold came in and Steven left, that was a pretty logical breaking point. It's a nice time to walk out the door because I think the last thing a new director wants is the old director's writer. I mean, that's a drag. The last thing you need is a guy sitting with his arms crossed saying, "Well, the way Steven would have done it is …" I had a nice friendly chat with him and I'm sure he wanted to be able to move anyway. Everyone was quite polite, I thought.
Indiana Jones 5 is scheduled to premiere on July 29, 2022. And Shia LaBeouf is looking forward to being a part.
