Harrison Ford returning for fifth 'Indiana Jones' movie in 2019



I’d rather take a poison dart to the neck, eat chilled monkey brains or be flattened by a giant boulder than announce another Hollywood sequel, but here goes. Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford have just announced plans for a fifth Indiana Jones movie, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The official statement: “Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.”

No word on whether Karen Allen will return as Marion Ravenwood or Shia LaBeouf will reprise his largely forgotten “Mutt” role. Frankly the only Indiana Jones characters I’d like to see reprised are Sean Connery as Henry Jones and Jonathan Ke Quan as Short Round.

“No time for sequels, Dr. Jones!”

For the record, Ford will be 77 years old when the movie comes out.
