You need to see this. It’s unbelieveable.
The website Mystery Man on Film has posted something amazing. In 1978, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Lawrence Kasdan sat down to talk about an idea that George and Steve had. The character’s name? Indiana Smith. What has been posted is a transcript of a five day meeting between the three.
Kasdan wrote the “Raiders of the Lost Ark” script, so this is Spielberg and Lucas throwing out ideas. You also hear how these two greats piece together back-story. And character names. It’s truly unbelievable. Go check it out and download it before it gets yanked. It’s really cool.
