Disney takes control of 'Indiana Jones' franchise

via scontent-b.xx.fbcdn.net

Disney now controls the future of the Indiana Jones franchise. Though Disney has owned the franchise's rights since it purchased Lucasfilm last October, rights to distribute and market any new films remained with Paramount Pictures, which released the series' first four installments. That could have been something of a hiccup when developing new films, but according to Variety, Disney and Paramount have now struck a deal that will give both distribution and marketing rights to Disney, while Paramount will retain rights to the first four pictures. There's no word yet on if a fifth movie is in the works, but Disney has been more than eager to take advantage of Lucasfilm's top property, and it would be no surprise to see it act similarly here.
