The Good News: There was a holdup because the script had to be rewritten until it was up to par. Not rushing the script is a good thing!

The Bad News: BLARGLE DARGLE IT'S INDIANA JONES IT DOES NOT NEED ANOTHER SEQUEL ESPECIALLY NOT A SEQUEL TWENTY YEARS AFTER THE LAST MOVIE
Frankly, I don't have much hope for the movie. I'm expecting it to be a trainwreck, albeit a very entertaining trainwreck.

Then they discover who Indy is, and decide to capture him so they can determine the source of his immortality and use it to clone Hitler back to life.
Shenanigans abound. Eventually, Indy is captured and taken to the Nazi base. The Nazis had already captured sasquatch, who turns out to be this guy:
Option 2: Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park 4.
This one pretty much writes itself.
