I say that Koepp and Kennedy should be left out of the 4th film, Johnston is a perfectly capable director.
David Koepp had nothing to do with the third movie, he wrote the script for number one and two. By the way, I have nothing against him, I think he can write great entertainment. He also did a good job on Spielberg's "War of the Worlds" and "Indy 4", and he's a fine director as well.
Speaking of the script: IMDB says they started shooting before the script was finished. We all know that's never a good sign...
