Really, though, it was a challenge getting the story together and getting everybody to agree on it. Indiana Jones only becomes complicated when you have another two people saying â€˜I want it this wayâ€™ and â€˜I want it that wayâ€™, whereas, when I first did Jones, I just said, â€˜Weâ€™ll do it this wayâ€™ â€” and that was much easier. But now I have to accommodate everybody, because they are all big, successful guys, too, so itâ€™s a little hard on a practical level.
â€œIf I can come up with another idea that they like, weâ€™ll do another. Really, with the last one, Steven wasnâ€™t that enthusiastic. I was trying to persuade him. But now Steve is more amenable to doing another one. Yet we still have the issues about the direction weâ€™d like to take. Iâ€™m in the future; Stevenâ€™s in the past. Heâ€™s trying to drag it back to the way they were, Iâ€™m trying to push it to a whole different place. So, still we have a sort of tension. This recent one came out of that. Itâ€™s kind of a hybrid of our own two ideas, so weâ€™ll see where we are able to take the next one.â€
