As production continues on Indiana Jones 5 in the UK, another batch of behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Lucasfilm’s long-in-development final installment has arrived online through Twitter (via IJ Adventure Outpost). The new set photos provide us our first glimpse of franchise star Harrison Ford’s return as the legendary adventurer. Ford, who was seen along with Lucasfilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy, was finally wearing his familiar Indiana Jones attire after over a decade since 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Yesterday, the first Indiana Jones set photos have been revealed, which hinted at the upcoming film’s intention to de-age Ford for flashback scenes possibly dating back to Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Indiana Jones 5 sees the return of Harrison Ford as he reprises one of his most iconic roles as the titular explorer. The final installment will also be led by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who has signed for the female leading role opposite Ford. It will also feature the introduction of franchise newcomers Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, and Shaunette Renée Wilson, who have been cast in undisclosed roles.
It is being directed by Oscar nominee James Mangold (Logan) from a new screenplay he is co-writing with Jez and John-Henry Butterworth, who collaborated on Ford v Ferrari. Mangold took over the director’s chair after Steven Spielberg had announced last year that he is exiting his directorial duties for the film. The Oscar-winning filmmaker was the one who directed all of the previous Indiana Jones films. Despite this, he will still remain part of the film’s production as a producer.
Indiana Jones 5 will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, original franchise director Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel, with John Williams returning to score the film, continuing a musical journey that began 40 years ago with Raiders of the Lost Ark.
The untitled project is currently scheduled to be released on July 29, 2022.
