Harrison Ford announced in an interview the start date of the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones adventures!
Update of 4/06/2019 at 17:17: Variety has corrected its article by announcing now ” next year” instead of ” next week “.
After bidding farewell to Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015, Harrison Ford is about to wear Indiana Jones ‘ hat for the last time in a fifth episode directed by veteran director Steven Spielberg after Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull did not go so well with fans. The new installment is therefore anxiously awaited with fear by all fans of this famous character who fear a new blunder may come out even from under Grandpa Spielberg …
Even though the American director is currently busy with the preparation of his remake of West Side Story, it seems that the production of the new Indy finally takes precedence! Recently interviewed by Variety on the occasion of the release of the animated film Secret Life of Pets 2 in which he lends his voice to a character, Harrison Ford, to everyone’s surprise, announced the film’s start date: ” We should start filming next week, I can not wait, things are looking good.“
With that said media buffs admit that they found that the announcement of the actor is rather surprising since nothing suggested that the production of the next Indiana Jones was as far advanced. Currently at the moment, no other story has filtered out (given Lucasfilm’s caution regarding the history of Star Wars films, this is not surprising at all), not even a single name listed for the cast, other than that of Ford (quite obvious given he will be the titular protagonist).
It should be noted that Harrison Ford has recently been seen with a well-stocked white beard, which could give us a clue to the look of Indy in this new sequel. This is an appearance that is also reminiscent of the character in the 1992 series of The Adventures of the Young Indiana Jones in which Harrison Ford made an appearance as old Indy.
Indiana Jones 5 will be released at the cinema in July 2021.
