Indy 4: "Sixth Sense" Scribe Sees Rugged Archeologist in Near Future

A host of sources -- namely and Coming Attractions -- are reporting that M. Night Shyamalan is being wooed to write the screenplay for "Indiana Jones 4." Shyamalan rocketed from the briny depths of obscurity when "The Sixth Sense" zipped to number nine on the all-time highest-grossing films list. What's most interesting about Shymalan being picked to pen "Indy 4" is that it's speeding up the production schedule. Previously, Spielberg, Lucas and Ford had said the earliest they could commit to the film would be 2005, but Shymalan's involvement has pushed the film to a 2002 release. On a sidenote, Harrison Ford will be 60 years old when this film is made, which might put a damper on those action sequences. Then again, Shymalan is a crafty writer, so maybe he'll find a way to work Ford's age into the script -- "Indiana Jones and the Quest for Regularity."
