Legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg recently announced that he will start shooting for the next instalment of the iconic series INDIANA JONES in April 2019, this will be the fifth entry into the series with the last one being released in 2008.
Fans have been waiting eagerly in anticipation for Harrison Ford to step into the shoes of the archaeology professor; Spielberg made the announcement on Sunday while accepting the award for Legend of Our Lifetime by Rakuten TV Empire Awards.
Spielberg said in the award show, “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,”.
Harrison Ford brought his persona to the character which adds a certain amount of swagger to the character; his know it all attitude, his un-quenching thirst for adventure and the desire to protect the artefacts and preserve mankind.
It remains to be seen how much action can the aging superstar can withstand as every INDIANA JONES film is laced with death defying escapes and historical connections in the most remote places in the world.
The franchise has earned over $2 Billion in gross worldwide making it one of the biggest in Hollywood.
Produced by Lucas Arts, this will be the first time in the franchise’ history that we won’t get to see Stephen Spielberg and George Lucas work together since Disney’s take over, but instead Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce the film.
The film is set to release on July 10, 2020.
