Steven Spielberg Has Stepped Down As The Director Of Indiana Jones 5, And We Have A List Of Potential New Directors
Harrison Ford might have made millions of people across countries ecstatic after his announcement on 5th April that he will be reprising his role as the legendary Indiana Jones, as he always has, for the upcoming Indiana Jones film.
The film series released its first film in 1981 which was titled Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark featuring Harrison Ford, Paul Freeman, Karen Allen, and several others. The film won several awards and marked the beginning of the Franchise and is now on its fifth installment.
However, what shocked the people most is the news that Steven Spielberg will not be sitting in the director’s chair for this one. What! But worry not, we have a list of potential directors who might helm the upcoming film.
Here’s A List Of Directors Who Could Be Sitting In The Director’s Chair For Indiana Jones 5
The first on the list is David F. Sandberg. Just when people began feeling that movies are simply not made the way they used to be anymore, Sandberg’s Shazam hits the theaters. The film’s perfect balance between action-adventure and being family-friendly and the fun increased Sandberg and the film’s credibility. Also, that is the same balance that the upcoming Indiana Jones film could use. Therefore, the chances are that Sandberg might helm Indiana Jones 5.
The next is Kathryn Bigelow. Bigelow is an Oscar-winning director who nailed films like Point Break(1991), The Hurt Locker(2010 Best Picture Winner), and Zero Dark Thirty. Directing Indiana Jones will finally put Bigelow’s name in a massive franchise, something we’ve all been waiting for. Therefore, given Bigelow’s film’s political and war undertone, we are guessing she can bring out Indiana Jones’s character in a new way.
Deborah Chow, too is more than a potential choice for Lucasfilms. When she has been working closely with the production house on Star Wars, she has also directed episodes of Mr.Robot, Better Call Saul, and Jessica Jones. She also nailed the episodes of The Mandalorian.
Jon Favreau is a fantastic option for the upcoming film. He directed MCU’s first film, The Ironman. And had been at the helm of The Mandalorian back in 2008, a series he led to the Televisions.
