It's been nearly 12 years since Harrison Ford last put on his iconic fedora as Indiana Jones, and fortunately for fans of the franchise, that won't be his last time. The Academy Award nominee stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and dropped some major information about the forthcoming fifth film, confirming when filming begins.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ford revealed production is expected to begin in late summer of this year, adding, "It’s going to be fun. I’m excited. They’re great fun to make!"
The fourth and most recent film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, premiered in 2008 to generally positive reviews. It was the first installment in the long-running series since 1989's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Fans are no doubt ready to see what Ford has up his sleeve for the next one up.
Last year, the Call of the Wild star discussed the possibility of Indiana Jones being rebooted at some point in the future, jokingly stating, "Nobody is going to be Indiana Jones, don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones. When I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy." Well, if he keeps giving us more movies, it will indeed be that easy!
The fifth Indiana Jones film does not have a title nor release date yet.
