Taking over the legacy of Steven Spielberg’s phenomenal directorial project, Indiana Jones, the fifth sequel is now under production. The directing honor is now taken over by Logan’s director, James Mangold, with a screenplay by Jonathan Kasdan. The film is scheduled to release in 2022.
Harrison Ford talks about the updates on the new movie. “We’re not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we are in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best,” Ford said in 2020. “We’ve got some scheduling issues and a few script things to do but we are determined to get it right before we get it made.”
The franchise originally created by George Lucas was released in 1982, titled as Raiders of The Lost Ark. The next installment in the franchise “should be starting to shoot sometime next year”, according to Ford.
