It sounds like Steven Spielberg is considering directing a fifth Indiana Jones movie, with Harrison Ford on board.
The subject came up during a forum with Spielberg and Tom Hanks for their new film Bridge of Spies. Hanks and Ford are now tied for the actor to appear in the most Spielberg films, but Spielberg revealed that Indiana Jones 5 will likely break that tie.
“We’ve gotta figure this out because now, Tom is tied with Harrison Ford: Harrison and I did four movies, Tom and I have done four movies,” Spielberg explained (via Yahoo). “Now I’ll probably do an Indy 5 with Harrison, [so] it’ll be five for Harrison, four for Tom.
“I’ve got to make another one with Tom, that’ll be five for Tom, five for Harrison. And I think I’m going to leapfrog that way for the rest of my career. With Daniel Day-Lewis in everything else!”
Fans already knew that a fifth Indiana Jones movie would happen eventually, thanks to comments from Lucafilm president Kathleen Kennedy, though she made clear that that they hadn’t even started working on a script yet. It’s good to know that Spielberg, and presumably Ford, are interested in being involved.
