Though most of the principals have already spoken up about their involvement about the project, Steven Spielberg had yet to confirm that he would direct a fourth Indiana Jones film until saying this:
I am about to make Indiana Jones 4, which is, as far as I am concerned, the sweet dessert I give those who had to chow down on the bitter herbs that I've used in Munich.
So you used some "bitter herbs" to make Munich, eh, Stevie? Don't worry, I dig your "bitter herbs," man. I didn't know you partied, but I guess that explains why Munich was so long. And had all those sequences of kaleidoscope patterns set to sitar.
