INDIANA JONES 5 Will Begin Filming This Summer Or As Early As April, According To Star Harrison Ford
Filming on the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones action-adventure franchise is slated to begin in the next few months (as early as April), according to multiple interviews with Harrison Ford himself.
Ford appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this week to promote his new film, Call of the Wild, and while there, he provided an update on the next Indiana Jones movie. Ford confirmed the movie was in the works, which everyone already knew, but added that filming will start soon.
"We hope to start soon, this summer," Ford said before clarifying, "This late summer."
However, in a separate interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Ford said filming on Indiana Jones 5 may begin as soon as April. Ford was also asked what it was like to return to the roles of some of his legendary characters from the '70s and '80s, such as Han Solo and Indiana Jones.
"I'm always delighted to come back to these characters. "When we have an opportunity to make another, it is because people have enjoyed them. I feel obliged to make sure our ambitions are as ambitious as they were when we started. You have a sense of responsibility to your customers. I think of the people who go to my movies as more as customers than I do as fans. Fans feels kind of weird to me... But the fact that these people support my business, and I'm responsible to them for the quality of the service that I offer."
Ford last played Indiana Jones in 2008 with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The film grossed $790 million worldwide and was praised by critics, but was not well received by most fans. Indiana Jones 5 is currently slated to hit theaters on July 9, 2021.
