Indiana Jones 5 Cast, Plot, Release Date, Details
Forty years later and there’s really only one guy who can pull off a fedora.
This summer, filming kicked off for the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise, marking a full 13 years since we’ve last seen Harrison Ford reprise the role. At 78 years old, Ford’s return as the most risk-prone archaeologist kicked off in the United Kingdom. In early June, Deadline reported that Ford had been spotted near Pinewood Studios, right outside of London. And now, just a few days later, we got a glimpse at what Ford’s look is for the fifth film.
Though the release date isn’t planned until next summer, there’s still a ton of information out there about what Indiana Jones 5 has in store, including a next level cast, some interesting shooting locations, the man in khaki himself, and even a plot point that might involve the 1969 moon landing.
The film will, of course, star Harrison Ford, but he will be joined by Mads Mikkelsen, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, and Thomas Kretschmann. This is also be the first time that the franchise will be produced under the Disney umbrella, following its acquisition of LucasFilm. What does that mean for production? Not as much as you’d think, but there is one major change. Logan and Ford v Ferrari director James Mangold will be taking over directing duties from Steven Spielberg.

That marks the first time since the franchise debuted in 1981 that someone other than Spielberg will be directing. However, he is still firmly attached to the project, in a producing role. In case that makes you a bit nervous, the Indiana Jones music buffs will be happy to hear that John Williams, the composer who has been behind the film series since day one, will return.
Currently, no one has revealed the plot of the upcoming film, though photos from the set reveal that filming is taking place, at least in part, at a castle in England. Photogs also captured a replica SS motorbike on set, which looks pretty badass if we say so ourselves. Even more, it looks like the new Indy flick might feature a plot point about the moon landing. A batch of set photos released in early July showed a sign that says, “Welcome Home Armstrong, Aldrin, Collins,” which hints that a scene in the film could take place during the welcome parade for the Apollo 11 astronauts in New York City.

Though the current release date is July 29, 2022, don’t be too surprised if that date gets pushed back, considering the backlog of films that are currently being pushed out to theaters following the Covid-19 pandemic. But with the 40th anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark this month, it’s probably a good time to get reacquainted with the first four films.
