Looks like more Indiana Jones adventures may be coming to theaters soon. First Star Wars, and now Disney has finalized a deal to buy marketing and distribution rights to George Lucas’ other lucrative Harrison Ford franchise from Paramount as well.

Disney already owned the production rights since they came with their purchase of Lucasfilm last year, but now with marketing and distribution in house as well, the process of actually making and releasing new Indiana Jones films becomes streamlined and much more likely to actually happen. Don’t worry about Paramount though, they’ll still get a cut of all future grosses, as well as retain distribution rights for the four already released films.

An announcement about the future of the Indiana Jones franchise is not expected immediately, though, come on, you know it’s coming. Now taking suggestions on who should take over the role…
