Rumor: Episode VII Model Makers Being Offered Seven Year Contracts, Including Indy 5

By: Dominic Jones

It seems that Lucasfilm is looking to put together a team of expert model makers to work on several of its upcoming projects.  A new report from Den of Geek suggests that the model makers are being offered seven year contracts that include working on the entire sequel trilogy, three spin-off films, and the long rumored Indiana Jones 5. 

Den of Geek also reports that security at Pinewood studios, home of Episode VII, is increasing as a full scale Millennium Falcon is under construction.

These rumors do make sense.  If you have a great team working on Episode VII, you likely want to continue working with them for as long as possible.  As for the Indy 5 aspect, if previous rumors that Harrison Ford would only do more Star Wars if work began on Indy 5 are to be believed, it bodes well for having Harrison in the film (not that anyone is too worried about that not happening).  As for the Pinewood elements, the part about security is no real surprise (happens on every blockbuster film).  However, there were rumors that the Millennium Falcon was already built, so this rumor seems to contradict that.

As always this is just a rumor until confirmed, or denied, by Lucasfilm or Disney.
