Lucasfilm's "Indiana Jones 5" is targeting a July 9, 2021 Disney release, starring Harrison Ford:
"It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK," promised director Steven Spielberg, currently working stateside on a reboot of the musical "West Side Story".
"The actors, and the crew...everybody who has helped me make my movies here will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie..."
"There is only going to be one actor playing 'Indiana Jones' and that’s Harrison Ford. The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison at the end..."
Asked if he sees his studio creating many more 'Indiana Jones' features, Disney CEO Bob Iger, said "Yes, I do. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of 'Star Wars', but I see making more. It won't be just a one-off..."
"I didn't want to do it without Steven," said Ford about reprising his role in the new film as 'Indiana Jones'.
"And I didn't want to do it without a really good script. And happily we're working on both.
"Steven is developing a script now that I think we're going to be very happy with."
Archaeologist, explorer, (killer) 'Indiana Jones' debuted in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981), followed by "Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom" (1984), "Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade" (1989) and "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" (2008).
The four films have earned $2 billion at the global box office.
