That’s right, Indy faithful. You’ll have to wait an extra year or so before you get to see Harrison Ford swing his whip for what is presumably his final time. According to a new report from THR, the film has been pushed back to July 6, 2021. The reason? They are apparently having some script issues.

Given just how reviled Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is by Indiana Jones fans, you can bet your ass they’ll be working to make sure they get a great script before they head into production. While this does kind of suck at a surface level, it’ll hopefully pay off later on down the line when the movie actually hits theaters.

This move also makes sense, as it was recently revealed that Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Jon Kasdan would be taking over scripting duties from David Koepp, who reportedly left to pursue a Blumhouse film. This is the second time Indiana Jones has been pushed back, as it was originally set to hit theaters on July 19, 2019 before it was pushed to July 10, 2020.

That wasn’t the only film to get an update. The Dwayne Johnson vehicle Jungle Cruise is slated for October 11, 2019, and Maleficent 2 will hit on May 20, 2020.
