In 2016, iconic director Steven Spielberg voiced that he and Harrison Ford made plans to bring Indiana Jones back to the screens for a fifth movie installment. Since then, the film was given a target release date for the year 2020 – since then the news has been pretty limited.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Spielberg has plans to move onto set by early 2019 so that he can finally begin his work on the blockbuster. The site reports that casting is already underway for his movie after that, a remake of the classic musical West Wide Story.
In September last year, screenwriter David Koepp provided an update on the progress of the Indiana Jones 5 script. He revealed that he and Spielberg were “mostly happy” with the current draft, and that the film will follow “some precious artifact that they’re all looking for.” He also confirmed that Indy’s son Mutt, played by Shia LaBeouf in 2008’s Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, will not return for this latest film.
Back in March 2016, Ford spoke about why he was returning to the role of the iconic archeologist for the fifth time. “The opportunity to work with Steven again on this character which has brought pleasure to so many,” he said. “Not to mention me. It’s great fun to play this character. It’s great fun to work with Steven, I’m looking forward to it.
The Indiana Jones series has brought in nearly $2 billion at the global box office across all four releases.
