It’s been 11 years since the much-maligned fourth Indiana Jones movie, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, came calling at cinemas. And therein decade-plus, there has been much talk about a still-yet-to-materialize Indiana Jones 5.
At the time, people were discussing Indiana Jones fans. Writer Lucas, director Spielberg, and its star Harrison Ford have all spoken about the fifth film in some capacity.

Indiana Jones 5 cast and plot
It will be no shock whatsoever to listen to that Harrison Ford, the person synonymous with the role is going to be back within the hat another time. Producer Frank Marshall clearly stated that the role wouldn’t be recast for the new movie.
We know that this movie will happen after Crystal Skull and have, as you’d imagine, an older Dr. Jones. Ford commented on revisiting the character later in life. He said, “It’s interesting to ascertain it during a different light. it’ll be fun and an honest thing to try to .”
