Veteran screenwriter David Koepp has revealed why he quit the upcoming movie in the Indiana Jones series.
It sounds like Indiana Jones 5 might be more than just the next chapter in a long-running franchise.
Steven Spielberg will remain a hands-on producer of the forthcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie.
The long-awaited fifth movie in the Indiana Jones series is reportedly set to roll cameras next week, according to Harrison Ford.
Indiana Jones 5 is inching slowly closer to its 2021 release date and its producer Frank Marshall has offered a brief update on the progress of pre-production.
Harrison Ford will hang up his bullwhip after the planned fifth movie in the Indiana Jones saga, Steven Spielberg has confirmed.
The 'Ready Player One' director will begin shooting the latest instalment of Indiana Jones next year.
A new interview with Disney CEO Bob Iger has revealed the studio wants to reboot ‘Indiana Jones’ with a new Dr. Jones after ‘Indiana Jones 5′ is released in 2019. This means someone else (Chris Pratt perhaps?) could brandish the bullwhip and fedora after 73-year-old Harrison Ford steps down from the role. Harrison Ford has committed to ‘Indiana Jones 5’ in 2019 - the continuum of the saga - alongside director Steven Spielberg and ‘Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ writer David Koepp, but beyond that it sounds like Disney wants to restart the whole shebang from scratch.
While the world was ecstatic to learn earlier this year that we’ll finally get a fifth instalment to the ‘Indiana Jones’ franchise the news was met with some trepidation. Most of this worry was instigated because of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’’ treatment of Harrison Ford’s Han Solo. During a recent discussion with The Hollywood Reporter the legendary director kept mostly schtum about the current plans for ‘Indiana Jones 5′.
The star turned down ‘Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull’ due to the smallness of the role, explaining to Digital Spy, “They wanted me to do a bit of green-screen - walk in, sit down and clap - and they were going to cut that into the wedding scene at the end. - Is Most Of Indiana Jones 4 A Radiation-Induced Hallucination? - Indiana Jones 5: What Do You Think?
Frank Marshall, the veteran movie producer of the Indiana Jones films, has promised that any future movies planned won’t be replacing Harrison Ford as Indy. Marshall, who is also behind the ‘Bourne’ movies, as well as classics like 'Back To The Future’ and 'Empire Of The Sun’, made the comments during a Q&A after being named CinemaCon’s producer of the decade. A new movie is indeed in the pipeline, and Ford is on board to reprise his swashbuckling archeologist.
David Koepp, screenwriter of ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,’ has been confirmed as the writer on the recently announced fifth Indy movie.
With a 75-year-old Harrison Ford returning as Indiana Jones, the plot of Indy 5 could be just be Dr. Jones in a retirement home getting his hip replaced (no-ones made that gag yet, right?). Each Indiana Jones film has stuck to the fictional chronology of his life, so 1983’s ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ featured a 39-year-old Indy battling Nazis in 1936, while 2008’s ‘Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ was set in 1957 featuring a 66-year-old Indy. This suggests that the as-yet-untitled fifth Indiana Jones movie will be set amid the historical milieu of the late 60s.
To paraphrase Ferris Bueller, the web moves pretty fast. Within what seemed like minutes of the announcement that ‘Indiana Jones 5’ is on the way with Harrison Ford reprising his role as the grizzled archaeologist, the memes were flowing. It was announced yesterday that Steven Spielberg will direct the new movie, with Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall producing.
