"Indiana Jones" Movie Updates

Director Steven Spielberg will start shooting the supernatural, action adventure feature "Indiana Jones 5" (working title) April 2019 in the UK, starring Harrison Ford, targeting a July 2020 release:

"It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK," Spielberg said. "The actors, and the crew...everybody who has helped me make my movies here will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie..."

"There is only going to be one actor playing 'Indiana Jones' and that’s Harrison Ford.  The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison at the end..."

Asked if he sees his studio creating many more 'Indiana Jones' features, Disney CEO Bob Iger, said "Yes, I do. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of 'Star Wars', but I see making more. It won't be just a one-off..."

"I didn't want to do it without Steven," said Ford about reprising his role in the new film as 'Indiana Jones'. 

"And I didn't want to do it without a really good script. And happily we're working on both. 

"Steven is developing a script now that I think we're going to be very happy with."

LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy will produce the new "Indiana Jones".

Archaeologist, explorer, (killer) 'Indiana Jones' debuted in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981), followed by "Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom" (1984), "Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade" (1989) and "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" (2008).

The four films have earned $2 billion at the global box office.
