Harrison Ford, everyone’s favourite grumpy 73-year-old is set to return for Indiana Jones five.
Disney CEO Bob Iger announced the news of the fifth film during an interview with Bloomberg about the current Star Wars movie.
In talking about the eighth-highest grossing film ever, Iger revealed that there will be “more great stories with George Lucas’ Star Wars and Indiana Jones, by the way, which will be coming”.
This comes as a surprise as many assumed that Ford’s last Jones epic would have been the 2008’s The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Regardless, Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn showed his support for a fifth film whilst director Steven Spielberg said he was adamant on Ford’s involvement.
“As long as there’s more adventures out there, I’ve got a bullwhip, a fedora, a leather jacket and a man on a horse who knows how to get the job done,” Spileberg told Screen International.
To cement Ford’s involvement even further, he added that it was “certainly not [his] intention to ever have another actor step into [Ford’s] shoes in the way there have been many actors that have played Spider-Man or Batman”.
For now, there are no details on the cast, plot or release date for the film.
