Harrison Ford has confirmed that Indiana Jones 5 will be his last film in the franchise. Everyone's favorite archaeologist in the cloak and sword returns to the big screen in the upcoming fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise, which began pre-production in December. The sequel, unofficially known as Indiana Jones 5, will bring back Harrison Ford as Dr. Henry “Indiana Jones”, with franchise creator George Lucas as executive producer.
However, director Steven Spielberg will not be behind the camera, as he gives the reins to Logan director, James Mangold. Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford has confirmed that the fifth film will be his last appearance in the franchise. Of course, the only man synonymous with Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford, will be back in the hat once again. Having just finished the fifth movie, I can say that there wasn't a day when I wasn't on set where I didn't say, “Yes, this is Indiana Jones,” she told Vanity Fair.
Kasdan's father, Lawrence Kasdan, wrote the screenplay for the first film in the franchise, In Search of the Lost Ark. Along with Ford and Waller-Bridge, Indiana Jones 5 stars John Rhys-Davies as Sallah, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renee Wilson, Toby Jones, Antonio Banderas and Oliver Richters in unknown roles. In an interview with HeyuGuys, Ford preached caution and due diligence when making another Indiana Jones film. Williams joined the event to conduct the orchestra live with his Indiana Jones track before Ford was presented.
Indiana Jones 5 will, of course, star Harrison Ford, but he will be joined by Mads Mikkelsen, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Thomas Kretschmann, John Rhys-Davies, as well as the recently announced Antonio Banderas. Just in case that makes you a little nervous, Indiana Jones music fans will be thrilled to hear that John Williams, the composer who has been behind the series since day one, will return. Although Indiana Jones 5 won't hit theaters until next summer, the whiplash sensation was one of the highlights of Disney's weekend. Indiana Jones 5 is the first installment that will not be directed by Steven Spielberg, who serves as producer.
Mads Mikkelsen will reportedly play one of the film's Nazi villains, and the trailer showed an exciting scene in which Ford rides a horse on the New York subway. Fleabag star Waller-Bridge will play the film's female lead, while Antonio Banderas, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Toby Jones will also star in undisclosed roles. Overall, the film will take place after Crystal Skull and will feature, as you can imagine, an older Dr. Jones.
