Indiana Jones 5 Just Might Be Steven Spielberg’s Next Film!

Photos From The Indiana Jones 5 Sicily Shoot - What Could They All Mean?

Not long after Disney purchased Lucasfilm, Indiana Jones 5 was announced alongside their Star Wars projects, setting a release date for 2020. It was confirmed that Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg would both be involved in the project, as with all the previous four films in the franchise.

But, with 2020 quickly approaching, Harrison Ford quickly aging, and no new updates for years, is Indy 5 ever going to actually happen?

Deadline reports that sources are saying that Indiana Jones 5 could be Spielberg’s next project, followed by his passion project, a remake of West Side Story.

With Disney wanting at least one more Harrison Ford led Jones movie, it would make sense that Spielberg would have to spring into action sooner rather than later, with 2020 right around the bend. David Koepp, who wrote the script for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, as well as Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible, and Spider-Man (2002), is penning Indiana Jones 5.

Spielberg has also been interested in a new version of the 1961 film West Side Story for a while now, with Tony Kushner (Munich, Lincoln) writing that script.

The sources also mention that Spielberg could fall for another script, just as he did with The Post, which was crammed into his already busy 2017 schedule at the last moment, which he directed while overseeing post-production on Ready Player One.

Raiders of the Lost Ark is my #1 favorite film, with Last Crusade taking second place, so I always welcome a new Indiana Jones movie, despite Ford’s age, nuking the fridge, and aliens. While I hated scenes from Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I did not despise the movie as a whole, as most did. All I need is Harrison Ford running around in costume in front of a green screen, with no effects added, and Spielberg whistling the theme off-camera to get me excited!
