Harrison Ford Won't Die in New 'Indiana Jones,' Says Steven Spielberg

"This one is straight down the pike for the fans," Steven Spielberg said.

Much of the interview is "inside baseball" about the machinations of Hollywood deal making between studios, though one detail remains clear: in an era of Tinseltown belt tightening when it comes to sweetheart deals, the Oscar winning "E.T." director is still king: The trade notes he made more money as the executive producer of "Jurassic World" than did Universal, the studio that released the billion dollar blockbuster.

Spielberg's next film, the fantasy picture "BFG," opens July 1.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
