Karen Allen frustrated with Indiana Jones 5

Karen first told Allen that her character should have had a bigger role in the first draft of Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Destiny: “When Steven (Spielberg) was going to direct, I didn’t get a chance to read any of those scripts , although I know Marion was much more involved in the story by this point. (…) So I knew that James (Mangold) had hired new writers and that there was going to be a whole new approach with a new director and new writers, but I was really venturing into the unknown.”

To Allen’s disappointment, however, her role in the new script adaptation of Indiana Jones 5 wasn’t huge: “The next thing I knew, I was reading a script that told the story of (‘Wheel of Destiny’). , and of course I was disappointed. I had believed that I would be an integral part of the film, but that just wasn’t the direction they decided to go in. (…) I think they had some issues with the story to work out since Shia LaBeouf wasn’t coming back and they decided to make up this story that Mutt had been killed in the war and that it drove a wedge between Marion and Indy . I mean, you could have knocked me over with a feather when I read it.”
