It looks like we can put all the rumors of a young Indiana Jones to rest, for now, as producers of the film have claimed that Indiana Jones 5 will feature Harrison Ford as the famous archaeologist and treasure hunter. What producer Frank Marshall said in a recent interview was this:
“We’re not doing the Bond thing where we’re going to call somebody else Indiana Jones…we have to figure this out.”
As a whole, this is relief and also a curious statement. It’s a relief because we can stop worrying about who the heck is going to take over, but it’s curious because Ford is not getting any younger and the last film was not worthy of the Indiana Jones title.
Names that were big out of people’s mouths were actors like Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, among other rugged men like that. Hopefully Spielberg is smart enough (which he is) to learn from his mistakes and focus on an Indiana Jones that isn’t focused on aliens, but instead go back to the Nazi era style of film making like we saw in the originals. Either way, it’s better to have answers than none at all.
