Maintain on to your fedoras, Indiana Jones 5 is in manufacturing
Just one more buddy.
After many delays and changes in the writing room, the fifth part of the Indiana Jones series has started and, according to the deadline, will be filmed in Great Britain next week. With no title or premise released yet, we can’t tell you much, but we can tell you that Mads Mikkelsen likes it.
Harrison Ford returns as Indiana Jones, along with cast Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Phoebe Waller Bridge (Fleabag), Boyd Holbrook (The Sandman), Shaunette Renée Wilson (The Resident) and Thomas Kretschmann (Avengers: Age Of Ultron) . However, their characters remain a mystery.
Creator and franchise director Steven Spielberg stepped down from directing the upcoming film, and was replaced by James Mangold (Walk The Line, Ford V. Ferrari, Logan). Don’t worry, unlike George Lucas, Spielberg will be the producer and will continue to be involved in various elements of the film. Frank Marshall holds the reins as the film’s producer, and what’s next for our Nazi punching hero is really everyone’s guess (but some have suggested a ’60s space racing theme). Composer John Williams, who wrote the iconic theme song at the beginning of the series, is back for the fifth film.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hit theaters back in 2008, and Harrison Ford turns 79 this year, who knows what geriatric adventures lie ahead. Spielberg insisted that Ford will be the only person who will ever play the role of Indy Jones because come on, he’s irreplaceable. Indiana Joan is not out of the way, however. Forty years ago, Ford first picked up his whip and threw it on his felt hat. So if they don’t let him die, his next daring escapade may be retirement.
The current release date of Untitled Indiana Jones 5 is July 29, 2022.
