For some time the question of whether Harrison Ford’s character will be celebrated in the Indiana Jones The rewrite of the franchise was a big topic of heated debate. While it is understandable that the actor cannot be expected to play the role forever, it is a sin to think of another actor in his place. Well, now you don’t have to consider this scary possibility anymore as Disney has confirmed it Indiana Jones 5 slated to begin production, with Ford revisiting the legendary archaeologist’s character, although it will be the last time the actor wears that priceless fedora.
Disney announced this at its long-awaited Disney Investor Day event Indiana Jones 5 Filming will begin in the spring of next year, although preproduction for this is already underway.
“Lucasfilm is in preproduction for the next episode of Indiana Jones,” the company said. “At the top are James @ Mang0ld, director of Ford versus Ferrari, and Indy himself. Harrison Fordwill be back to continue his legendary character’s journey. “
The announcement pacifies massive speculation that Ford may not return as a famous adventurer, despite the fact that the film, although confirmed to repeat the role in 2016, has been postponed to 2021. The actor was last seen as the well-known adventurer back in the 2008s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. With the gap between the films already wider than fans anticipated, the added delay and the fact that Ford moved on to other projects in the years that followed gave way to wilder theories
There has even been speculation that Chris Pratt will appear with Indian Jones’ bullwhip and leather jacket, but luckily the 78-year-old actor has no plans to hand over his inheritance yet. He had already confirmed the same thing in 2016 during a conversation with Jimmy Kimmel, in which he emphasized that “I’m ready” when the character gets a new story, a new adventure.
“The opportunity to work with [producer] Steven [Spielberg] again and the chance to revisit that character again, which has brought joy to so many people – not to mention me, “he explained.” This character is great fun to play. Steven is great fun to work with. I look forward to it.”
As already known, James Mangold, director of the Oscar nomination Ford versus Ferrari will lead this next chapter in Indiana Jones’ adventurous life in place of Steven Spielberg, who made the first four films in the franchise. This time he’s on board as executive producer, along with Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm and Frank Marshall as producers. It was after Spielberg decided to step back from developing the fifth and final Indiana Jones Film that Mangold took over. And Marshall has already ensured in a chat Collider that the Ford versus Ferrari Director is perfect for the franchise.
“His love for the franchise. He’s a wonderful filmmaker. I think he has a relationship with Harrison too. It was all the right plays that came together at the right time,” he shared, adding that “Steven stays as a producer, we have so best of all. “Well, the movie’s success won’t be decided until after it’s released. Subject to further delays, Dr. Jones’ fifth adventure is expected to hit theaters in July 2022. This news comes from the official Disney Twitter page.
