“…Indiana Jones. I always knew someday you’d come walking back through my door. I never doubted that. Something made it inevitable.” In the era of reboots and sequels, one more Indiana Jones film certainly seems inevitable. In an interview with Variety at the premiere of The Secret Life of Pets 2, Harrison Ford revealed that the latest incarnation of the iconic character will land on a film set really soon — as in, just days from now.

Ford told Variety that the newest chapter in the Indy legacy “should be starting to shoot sometime next week.” He added, “I’m looking forward to it. Things are coming along well.”

It’s been 11 years since Indiana Jones: The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hit theaters, but fans will have to wait until 2021 to see the character on screen again. In addition to Ford returning, director Steven Spielberg will once again be behind the camera for Indiana Jones 5, which as of now does not have a title. Plot points and cast members have yet to be revealed, but this film is sure to draw audiences when it premieres.

Update: Variety now reports that Indiana Jones 5 will start filming sometime next year. Ford reportedly misspoke.

I know this is not the usual cuppa Beat tea, but hey, it’s Spielberg, and maybe this movie will get him back into the Oscar race before he returns to Indiana Jones. […]
