Disney and Lucasfilm’s long-planned Indiana Jones 5 took a major step forward back in February when it was announced that Steven Spielberg would be handing over directing duties to the film to Logan and Ford v Ferrari helmer James Mangold.
However, just when it seemed that Harrison Ford was finally set to don the fedora once again, along comes a global pandemic to scupper the plans and see the project pushed back yet again.
As announced yesterday by Disney, Indiana Jones 5 is one of several movies to be postponed due to the global health crisis, with the sequel now dated for July 29th, 2022 as opposed to July 9th 2021. That’s just a few short weeks after Ford’s 80th birthday.
This is the third time we’ve seen the project pushed back a year, with Disney originally intended to open the film in July 2019.
Are you looking forward to seeing an octogenarian Indiana Jones on adventure presumably set around the time of the actual release of Raiders of the Lost Ark? Let us know in the comments below or on our social channels @FlickeringMyth…
