Well, I guess it's time to thaw out Harrison Ford again for another Indiana Jones movie...
Director Steven Spielberg revealed at the Empire Awards last night that Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones 5 filming will begin in the UK in April 2019!
“It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK. The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers — everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here,” he said.
Set for a July 20, 2020 release date, the film will again see Spielberg teaming up with Harrison Ford, who is reprising his iconic role, and franchise producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshal. The screenplay is written by David Koepp.
I don't know that the world needs another one of these movies. The last one wasn't very good at all and, honestly, Harrison Ford is seventy-five years old and probably shouldn't be running around any jungle or desert without a nurse's aide.
However, maybe they'll introduce Chris Pratt into the series to take over the role and let Harrison ride off into the sunset or straight into Shady Pines.
Whichever is more dramatic.
