‘Indiana Jones’ 5 to Begin Filming in Early 2019
Indiana Jones 5 is officially a go!
While receiving the “Legend of Our Lifetime Award” on Sunday at the Rakuten TV Empire Awards, Steven Spielberg announced that the next installment in the Indiana Jones franchise would beginning filming next April in the United Kingdom.
“It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK. The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers – everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here.”
It’s been more than ten years since the last Indiana Jones film – The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – hit theaters, and while Harrison Ford will be reprising his iconic role, the same can not be said for Shia LaBeouf who played Jones’ son Mutt. No plot details have yet been given for the fifth installment, originally set to open in July 2019 before Disney pushed it back to July 10, 2020.
