Odds of ever seeing that long-rumored Indiana Jones 5 not good

Ever since Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull disappointed fanboys the world over in 2008, rumors have swirled that a fifth installment was coming to right the ship. Despite rumblings the past four years, some new comments from Indy's longtime producer imply that the iconic whip may be retired for good.

Frank Marshall (Indiana Jones, The Goonies, Back to the Future), whose career reads like a who's who of awesome, recently told Collider that work on a fifth Indiana Jones is going nowhere fast:

"I say, for me, [Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is] the last hurrah. I know that yes, we talk about it, but there's no idea, there's no MacGuffin... Yeah, no [George Lucas] isn't [hungry to do another Indiana Jones]. And he's obviously passing the baton to my wife, so."

If you're unfamiliar of the connection, Marshall is referring to his wife Kathleen Kennedy, who recently took the reins from Lucas as co-chair at Lucasfilm. So if Marshall says it's over, odds are—it's over.

What's your take on the news? Did Indie jump the shark with Crystal Skull, or would you like to see one more try?
