Marshall, 68, mastered the franchise game even before franchises became king: His blue-chip résumé includes the Indiana Jones movies — his biggest is 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull with $787 million worldwide — and on June 12, Jurassic World will be open for business. But, he says, "It’s very difficult now to develop stories that aren’t big blockbusters or franchises like we used to be able to do." Case in point, his film Miracle on the Hudson about pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed a distressed airplane full of passengers on the Hudson River. "I have an uplifting story, but it may not be dark enough. I’ve taken it all around town. I’m now looking in the independent world," he says of the Todd Komarnicki-penned script. "The darker stories seem to get the traction." In the meantime, he’s reuniting with his old pal Steven Spielberg on The BFG and is about to start a fifth Bourne outing, reteaming Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass.
