Steven Spielberg is looking to begin production for the next installment of the Indiana Jones franchise in 2019, with the movie set for release in 2020.
Indiana Jones 5 will see Harrison Ford return to his iconic role after last playing as the character back in 2008 in ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’.
With production set to begin in 2019, that means Harrison Ford will be 77-years old when he is producing the movie. This has raised a few questions on whether Ford will be able to do some of the demanding action scenes this franchise is known for. Spielberg will be hard at work looking for the perfect stunt-double to physically-demanding roles which the actor would have previously been able to do. Harrison Ford has recently returned to some of his iconic roles, such as Han Solo in Star Wars and Deckard in Blade Runner 2049.

Spielberg has directed the previous four Indiana Jones movies and will return to helm the production for the 5th installment in the franchise. The world-famous director has been busy lately, seeing the release of The Post as well as anticipating the release of his highly ambitious project Ready Player One, which is based on the novel of the same name by Ernest Cline. Spielberg signed on to produce the movie back in 2016 having drawn from a script by David Koepp.
Despite previous reports that Indiana Jones 5 will be set for a release in July 2019 THR recently reported that the date was pushed back to 2020, with production now set to begin in 2019. The movie is now expected to release in July 2020.
