Indiana Jones 4 Finds Another Writer

Indiana Jones is getting fickle in his old age. E! Online says the long-delayed "Indiana Jones 4" project has been handed off to screenwriter Jeff Nathanson for another rewrite.

Nathanson's credits include "The Terminal" and "Catch Me If You Can," which just happened to be directed by "Indy" helmer Steven Spielberg.

The prognosis for "Indiana Jones 4" has deteriorated over the last two years. Back in 2002 writer/director Frank Darabont was hired by Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford to write Indy's latest adventure, but Darabont's script was nixed by Lucas. Paramount was forced to indefinitely postpone "Indy 4."

The hiring of Nathanson sets the project back on track, but there are still big questions looming: Will the script be approved? If it's approved, will Spielberg, Lucas and Ford have time to make the film? And finally, will they get around to this thing before the 62-year-old Ford is collecting social security?
