Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Forget for a moment that Shia LaBeouf says in a BBC interview, "I get to wake up and shake hands with mermaids and unicorns. I live in a fantasy world."

The real news is what he reveals about a new Indiana Jones film.

The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen star says, "Steven [Spielberg] just said that he cracked the story on it before I left and I think they're gearing that up."

No title, no release date and probably no script—not to mention whether Harrison Ford will be passing the torch to Shia's Mutt—but the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise is in the works. Woo-hoo! Let's all go shake hands with a unicorn.

And in the rest of the movie world:

• The Hangover you had that's refused to go away? Well, it's getting a sequel. Director Todd Phillips tells MTV that the idea had come up during the shooting of the first film, and its success means a sequel is gonna happen, with cameras rolling as early as next spring. "Now that the movie has really connected, it's something we're doing for sure."

• Wolverines! The onetime battle cry of Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen will soon be echoed by Josh Peck and Adrianne Palicki, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The pair have been enlisted in the remake of Red Dawn, the 1984 film about a Communist invasion of the U.S.

• The original Bridezilla is back. The iconically coiffed Bride of Frankenstein could soon lumber into theaters with the aid of Illusionist director Neil Burger, says the Hollywood Reporter's Risky Business blog.
