CS: How is doing an Indiana Jones movie without George Lucas change the equation?
Marshall: I love being with George and having his input, but life changes and we’re moving on. He moved on. We’re very respectful of the original intentions of the movie, certainly Harrison’s character. The serialization of what the original intention was. I’d love to have George there. I love being around George and working with him, obviously. It’ll be a little different, because the ideas are coming from a different place now.
CS: There’s an actual writers room for Indy?
Marshall: Well, I dunno if you’d call it a writers room, but a lot of people that we trust pitch ideas and things. Gathering info.
