Call it Space Cowboys 8, or Grumpy Old Men Parts 5, or Cocoon 12, but the old guys are getting together for ONE LAST SHOW. Director Steven Spielberg and star Harrison Ford are reuniting for another Indiana Jones films, to be released on July 19, 2019. Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will oversee production as they did for the first four films.

“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios in a statement. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”

While we all like Indy, there is something a bit disquieting about this news. Attempts to bring in “Mutt,” Indy’s long lost son with Marion as a new blood wil likely be scuttled by the casting or lunatic Shia LaBeouf in the role. Of course he could always be recast. Ford did a great job as cranky old Han Solo in Star Wars so it’s a bit surprisingly to bring him back unl–

The only question: what iconic prop will injure him this time?

    “…[unless] 

Indy will die in this movie. Has to be the only reason Ford would get back in the saddle.”

    I know this is tongue-in-cheek, but Ford’s given several interviews over the years indicating that he has affection for the Indiana Jones character beyond what he feels for Han Solo or some of his other roles. One can surely imagine that he might want saddle up as Indy one more time because for reasons other than just wanting to kill off the character himself. (Not that that won’t happen, but it’s far from a given…)
