    Just my personal opinion, but I think that the whole point of doing a reboot would be to do it with a different director.

      I agree, probably a good idea if you want to breathe new life into a franchise.

        Yeah, I'm definitely not opposed to a reboot of the Indiana Jones franchise, just hand it over to an up-and-coming director.

          Got anyone in mind who you think would do a good job on the new Indie franchise?

            Martin McDonagh - He's the guy that directed Seven Psychopaths.

            Niel Blomkamp - I don't know if he wants to get involved with a reboot though... who knows.

            Rupert Wyatt - He's no stranger to reboots (Planet of the Apes).

            Joss Whedon - not an 'up-and-coming' director, but it would be interesting to see which direction he would take the franchise. (Nathan Fillion as Indiana Jones?)

            Euros Lyn - He is making rounds on BBC. Did you see the Science in the Library episode of Dr. Who? Or the Girl in the Fireplace episode? Or the Children of earth mini-series for Torchwood?

              I can definitely see Blomkamp pulling it off, although his style might be a bit too "new age" for the older crowd... I haven't had a chance to delve too much into Euros Lyn's work as from what it seems he spent most of his career directing for TV, however I might just jump into some of the Dr. Who episodes and get caught up, might turn it into a weekend thing sometime soon. What makes you think Euros Lyn is a good fit for such a large budget reboot? The reason I ask is that unlike with TV shows where there is ample time for character building, these 2.5 hour features require a completely different approach...

              @drunkenninja -

              Well in the major episodes that he directed, he had the benefit of an already developed Dr. Who and companion, but he was able to develop the character who was the focus of each episode enough in one hour. It's been a while since I've seen either episode, but I think he won a Hugo for one of the episodes.
