Harrison Ford says Indiana Jones 5 will shoot next year

Aside from everyone’s favourite scruffy-looking scoundrel Han Solo, the other role Harrison Ford is known for the most is that of famed archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones.

Having portraying Indy four times throughout his career, a planned fifth Indiana Jones movie has been on the table for several years now, and was originally supposed to be released this year before getting delayed. Now, according to Ford himself, Indiana Jones 5 may be finally ready to enter production next year.

At the premiere for The Secret Life of Pets 2, Ford told Variety that Indiana Jones 5 “should be starting to shoot sometime next year.” On stepping back into the role and picking up the whip once again, Ford said “I’m looking forward to it. Things are coming along well.”

Ford first starred as Indiana Jones in the 1981 film Raiders of the Lost Ark as he searched for the powerful Ark

Actor Harrison Ford said "Indiana Jones 5", to be directed by Steven Spielberg in the UK, is now ready to start shooting and that he is "...looking foward to it", targeting a July 9, 2021 release:

"There is only going to be one actor playing 'Indiana Jones'," said Speilberg, "and that’s Harrison Ford. The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison at the end..."

Asked if he sees his studio creating many more 'Indiana Jones' features, Disney CEO Bob Iger, said "Yes, I do. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of 'Star Wars', but I see making more. It won't be just a one-off..."

Harrison Ford on Who Should Play Indiana Jones After Him: ‘Nobody! When I’m Gone, He’s Gone!’
Can you imagine an actor other than Harrison Ford playing Indiana Jones? Well, Harrison Ford isn’t having it. While Ford was promoting “The Secret Life of Pets 2” on NBC’s “Today” on Friday morning, Craig Melvin asked the actor who should play the swashbuckling archaeologist once he is done with the role.

“Nobody! Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones,” said Ford. “When I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy.”

Although Chris Pratt has been mentioned as a possible replacement, Ford mixed up his Chrises and added, “This is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine this. I’m sorry, man.” Check out the video below.

Shia Labeouf’s ‘Honey Boy’ Set for November Launch

  • Variety
Amazon Studios has set an awards season release of Nov. 8 for Shia Labeouf’s show business drama “Honey Boy.”

The story centers on a child star attempting to mend his relationship with his law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father over the course of a decade and is loosely based on Labeouf’s life. “Honey Boy” was Labeouf’s childhood nickname. The actor broke out in 2000 when he was 14 in Disney Channel series “Even Stevens,” then starred in “Transformers” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” while struggling with substance abuse and brushes with the law.

Hedges portrays the young-adult version of Labeouf, while Labeouf plays his own father. “A Quiet Place” star Jupe portrays the younger version of Labeouf and Maika Monroe plays an aspiring actress named Sandra. Labeouf is now 32.

Alma Har’el directed from Labeouf’s script. Producers are Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Daniela Taplin Lundberg of Stay Gold Features,

Disney Confirms Summer 2021 Release For Indiana Jones 5

By the time Indiana Jones 5 hits cinemas, it’s possible that Harrison Ford will belong in a museum. Exactly when that will be was confirmed when Disney announced their latest production slate earlier this week. In case you missed it, it laid out the release dates of several “Untitled Marvel” projects, as well as alternating Avatar and Star Wars movies each year from 2021. Of note, though, was the appearance of “Untitled Indiana Jones,” which is targeting a July 9th, 2021 release date.

Given that Steven Spielberg is still hard at work on his version of West Side Story, which will hit cinemas on December 18th, 2020 and stars Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler, this date makes a good deal of sense. The project should enter production shortly and wrap sometime later this year, leaving Spielberg able to deal with post-production on it as he begins to ramp up whatever Indiana Jones 5 will be.

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of 1989: ‘Batman,’ ‘Do the Right Thing,’ ‘Driving Miss Daisy,’ ‘The Little Mermaid’ and more
Big hair, shoulder pads, neon clothes. Everything seemed bigger and brighter in the 1980s, and the movies of that era reflect that. And the greatest of those 10 years turned out to be the last one: 1989 brought us “Batman,” “Dead Poets Society,” “Do the Right Thing,” “Driving Miss Daisy,” “Field of Dreams,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Sex, Lies and Videotape,” “Steel Magnolias,” “When Harry Met Sally” and a whole bunch of excellent sequels. Let’s take a look back at the 30th anniversary of the 1989 film year.

Many productions that fared well at the box office consisted of sequels and the big blockbuster action films audiences hungered for. Out of the top ten grossing movies of 1989, four were sequels and three spawned sequels later on. Additionally, five of these films – “Batman”, “Last Crusade”,”Gbii”, “LW2” and “Honey” – were released between Memorial day weekend and July 4th, breaking box office records and setting

Sundance: Shia Labeouf Premieres Childhood Memoir Movie ‘Honey Boy’ to Standing Ovation
Shia Labeouf premiered his autobiographical memoir “Honey Boy” to a standing ovation at the Eccles Theater on Friday night at the Sundance Film Festival.

The movie, which Labeouf wrote and co-stars in, is set in the 2000s during the height of his Disney star fame, and it traces his strained relationship with his alcoholic father, played by Labeouf. The character based on himself, named Otis Lort, is portrayed by Noah Jupe as a teenager and Lucas Hedges as an adult.

Labeouf wrote his first screenplay after one of his stints in rehab a few years ago. “It’s strange to fetishize your pain and make a product out of it,” Labeouf said from the stage of the Eccles. “And you feel guilty about that. It felt very selfish. This whole thing felt very selfish. I never went into this thinking, ‘Oh let me f—ing help people.’ That wasn’t my goal.

Frank Marshall gives Indiana Jones 5 update, confirms no involvement from George Lucas

A fifth instalment in the Indiana Jones franchise has been in the works for several years now, but despite the fact that Harrison Ford isn’t getting any younger, the film was recently pushed back a year to 2021 after Solo: A Star Wars story screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan was brought in to work on the script.

Indiana Jones 5 Producer Talks Moving Forward Without George Lucas

While 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull left the series on a weak note, the team behind Indiana Jones 5 are likely hoping to recapture the thrills of the Indy’s heyday, but they’ll have to do so without the creative input of the original creator of this classic adventure series.

Though George Lucas is reportedly staying on as an executive producer, the fifth Indiana Jones will be the first in the series where the famed filmmaker didn’t have a hand in shaping the story. Speaking to ComingSoon, producer Frank Marshall seemed acceptant of the situation and respectful of the legacy that Lucas has left, saying:

“I love being with George and having his input, but life changes and we’re moving on. He moved on. We’re very respectful of the original intentions of the movie, certainly Harrison’s character. The serialization of what the original intention was.

25 Behind-The-Scenes Revelations From The Making Of The Indiana Jones Movies

The Indiana Jones franchise remains one of the most-liked and respected adventure series in modern cinema. Taking its inspiration from adventure movies from the 30s and 40s, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas brought their love for these action movies to the big screen. Beginning with his introduction in Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, Indiana Jones became the model for adventure movies of that decade. His action adventure tales continued into Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, a prequel to the first film. The film pushed the boundaries of film ratings at the time, generating the creation of a new film rating because of it: PG-13.
