The Insider is reporting that Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as "Indiana Jones" for the fifth installment of the franchise. They don't have much else to add, except that it'll supposedly start shooting next year, sometime in 2010, for release in 2011. "Harrison has kept himself in good shape and could still do a lot of the stunts in the last film," their source says.
Back in June, Shia LaBeouf let slip that Steven Spielberg is already gearing up for "Indiana Jones 5," so this isn't the first time we've heard of this, but it is the first we've heard about Ford.
But I was really expecting this because how can you make an "Indiana Jones" film without Ford? I think everyone believed that "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was setting up LaBeouf to take over the reigns so that Ford could retire once and for all, but I think even Spielberg knows how big of a mistake that would be.
Expect the 67-year-old actor to be kicking Soviet (or other evildoers) butt sometime in the next two years. Maybe it will have a better script too so they won't nuke the fridge.
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
