Indiana Jones 5 is still in production and Harrison Ford is always ready to play the main role. The President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, confirmed the status of the film in Bafta on February 1st.
Kennedy’s brief statement highlighted the state of the film.
We work far, get the script where we want it to be and then we will be ready to go, Kennedy said. Harrison Ford will be involved, yes. This is not a restart; It’s a continuation. He can not wait. Harrison Ford will resume his role as a titular / archaeologist.
Indiana Jones 5 has been a constant delay. The film was originally exiting in 2019. Since then, there were several declines. Disney had announced a new release date on July 10, 2020 with a production that will begin in April 2019 but who also failed. Currently, the official release date of the film is July 9, 2021, but we do not know how long this date will hold.
The last time Indiana Jones hit the big screen, it was in 2008 with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The film was not well received by criticism and it is often considered the worst film of the series.
