Antonio Banderas Joins Indiana Jones 5 solid | Arts and leisure
Antonio Banderas is part of the cast of the new movie ‘Indiana Jones’.
The 60-year-old actor will star in the upcoming fifth film alongside Harrison Ford, who plays the daredevil title archaeologist in the franchise.
According to the Deadline, it is not yet known who will play Banderas in the film, and the details of the plot are vague.
Banderas will team up with Mads Mikkelsen, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renée Wilson in the film.
James Mangold will direct from long-time helmsman Steven Spielberg, who will continue to be the film’s producer.
Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel will also co-produce the film.
Last month it was reported that the shooting of the new movie “Indian Jones” had been postponed for three months due to Ford’s shoulder injury in a choreographed fight scene.
A source said: “It’s Harrison’s last outing as Indiana and everyone thought it would be easy to sail.
“After the initial delays everyone wanted to leave. But now Harrison is injured and it’s worse than first thought.
“The movie’s bosses got together to work out the schedule and it’s chaos. In September at the earliest, they think they can start production again.
“It wasn’t what anyone expected, so having to change everything is a big blow. Everyone was concerned for Harrison and they are glad he is on the mend.”
Ford is known for doing his own stunts on set, and Spielberg once admitted he was an “idiot” for letting the star do risky scenes like the bouldering run in “Raiders of the Lost Ark”.
