There is no story for Indiana Jones 5 yet...
According to the Twitter page of Variety writer Marc Graser (via Coming Soon), the script for Star Wars: Episode VII is due in January. Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn revealed the news this morning at Variety's dealmaker breakfast. JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan are currently finishing up the script.
Meanwhile, a fifth Indiana Jones film doesn't even have a story yet, according to Horn.
Horn added that while no budget has been set for Episode VII, it's probably close to $200 million. He confirmed the plans to have a new Star Wars film ever year, alternating between "Saga" chapters and single character spinoffs.
Episode VII will be directed by Abrams, who will produce with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Bryan Burk. Tommy Harper and Jason McGatlin are the executive producers. The film will open in 2D and 3D on December 18, 2015.
