The future of Indiana Jones is now fully under the control of The Walt Disney Studios. Friday, December 6th, Disney announced that it had secured marketing and distribution rights from Paramount Pictures for any future Indiana Jones movies. The company had already owned the ability to produce new films in the franchise as a result of their 2012 purchase of Lucasfilm, but now they own sole ability to market and distribute those installments. According to EntertainmentWeekly.com
, Paramount, from whom Disney acquired these rights, will get a "cut" of future sales from new Indiana Jones movies, but "will retain the distribution rights for the first four films in the series." No more pictures have been announced, but Harrison Ford has mentioned in interviews that he wouldn't be opposed to playing the role again. But, with Ford being 71 years old, perhaps Disney will consider rebooting the franchise.
