The fifth Indiana Jones doesn’t have a title yet, but it does have an impressive cast, a legacy to live up to, and a filming start date!
After a number of delays, Deadline reports that the still-untitled Indiana Jones 5 is going into production next week in the U.K., with the 78-year-old Harrison Ford stepping back into the role of the globe-trotting, whip-cracking, Nazi-punching archeologist.
Of course, he probably won’t be punching Nazis in this new installment; the last Indiana Jones movie, 2008’s Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, pushed things forward into the 1950s and had Indiana fighting against the Soviet Union. Presumably, another decade has passed, so we should find an older Indiana making his way through the 1960s. He could still fight Soviets then. Or arthritis, whichever.
But really, we don’t know what the plot will entail, although we know who will play it out. In addition to Ford, the cast of Indiana Jones and the Missing Subtitle will include Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller Bridge, professional villain Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook and more. The movie will not be directed as Steven Spielberg as originally planned, but rather Logan director James Mangold.
Indiana Jones 5 is due out in theaters on July 29, 2022. When that happens, Ford will have been playing the character for over 40 years. Will this be his last outing as Indiana? Time will tell.
