Since Harrison Ford may or may not be in Star Wars remains to seen, we do know, he’ll be in the new Indy 5 movie on the flip…
Disney chairman Alan Horn said in a statement:
“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019.”
“It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”
Here is the report:
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and her husband, Frank Marshall — who worked on the first four Indiana Jones films under the Paramount umbrella — will produce the upcoming release in the series recently acquired by Disney.
Ford, 73, and Spielberg, 69, have worked together on every Indiana Jones movie to date. The last film was 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, in which Ford acted opposite a then-21-year-old Shia LeBeouf, who played his son.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers meant for LeBeouf, 29, to become Ford’s successor in the franchise, but the plan proved unsuccessful.
The as-of-yet-untitled next installment of Indiana Jones is set to hit theaters July 19, 2019.
