The Indiana Jones franchise is sprinting back into theaters, as a fifth film in the decades-spanning action series is set for summer 2019, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Harrison Ford will once again star as one of his best-known characters, and Steven Spielberg is back to direct. The follow-up to 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is due out on July 19, 2019.
“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” says Disney chairman Alan Horn. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”
No title is set for the sequel to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which was the first Indy film in 19 years when it was released in 2008. Ford recently revived his other iconic character, Han Solo, for Star War: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, another Disney release.
