Indiana Jones fans should brace themselves after the president of Lucasfilm announced another sequel which features the adventures of the archaeology professor. The news was confirmed by company president Kathleen Kennedy, according to Vanity Fair.
Kennedy confirmed that Disney is planning another Indiana Jones movie. She said the film would be made inside the company one day but refused to reveal an exact timeline for the project. She further added, “When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.”
Talks about a fifth Indiana Jones movie have been making buzzes after the release of “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”. However, it was not clear if Harrison Ford would still play the lead role as the daring hero.
Earlier this year, Deadline reported that director Steven Spielberg wanted to cast “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor Chris Pratt for the rebirth of the Indiana Jones movie. Previous reports also said that Pratt was selected by Spielberg to take on the lead role for the upcoming “Jurassic World” film.
Meanwhile, we do know that Harrison Ford, 72, is currently laying low. This was after he had incurred serious injurious following a small plane crash in March. In 2013, Ford said through an interview that he is thinking it would be “perfectly appropriate” for him to make a comeback and star in his 70s role.
In an interview with the Telegraph, Ford said in reference to the Indiana Jones movie,”To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive.”
The only thing we know at the moment is that Ford will reprise his role in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. However, he hasn’t ruled out his possible return in the Indiana Jones franchise.
