It wasn’t Ford’s age that hurt Crystal Skull, it was the gutless, pandering, meandering script. Disney can make up for this structural disaster by crafting Harrison Ford a film worthy of the new Indiana Jones. The story of an aged adventurer is a fertile story engine, and it is ground Ford is already set to cover when he straps on his blaster and becomes Han Solo once again in another Lucasfilm production, "Star Wars: Episode VII". A Cold War Indy, trying to save the world from nuclear holocaust in the days following the Kennedy assassination, or Indy looking for Excalibur in England during the height of the Mod movement could be cooler than words can describe. Just go "The Expendables" route and add some young action stars to the aging lead. Notice how the most intense action sequences were handled by Jason Statham and Jet Li in the first "Expendables"? Wait a minute, Jet Li! "Indiana Jones"! Jet Ii as an adult Short Round! There you go. Film it, Disney! As all Indy fans know, it’s not the age, it’s the mileage, and Ford still has plenty of gas in the tank to play an even older Indy, assuming he’s given the right script.
