Like a man miraculously surviving a nuclear blast thanks to a refrigerator, David Koepp is getting a second shot. According to THR, the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Jurassic Park writer will take another stab at Indiana Jones and has signed on to write the recently announced fifth film in the franchise. While Koepp's last Indy was indeed a fairly wrongheaded effort, it should be noted that he can't be held entirely responsible: he was forced to work from a story concocted by the increasingly misguided George Lucas. We can only hope that Lucas's role now, like it was on The Force Awakens, will be reduced to making passive-aggressive comments after the fact.
