Despite the long-planned fifth instalment of the Indiana Jones franchise being plagued with several problems including a series of delays as well as director Steven Spielberg and screenwriter David Koepp both departing the project, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy has recently announced that filming will begin in Spring 2021.
Now, in an interview with ComingSoon, John Rhys-Davies, who played Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade, has expressed his interest in returning for the fifth and final instalment in the long-running series.
“I understand the film is going to be made, allegedly in May,” Rhys-Davies said. “I have the slightest skepticism that the world will be able to shoot a movie like that in May. I suppose it is possible that I will be asked to be in it. If nominated I will serve! But I think we ought to wait a little bit longer and, you know, let our masters actually make announcements and then you can either share my joy or my disappointment. Is that suitably diplomatic?”
Indiana Jones 5 will see director James Mangold helm Harrison Ford’s fifth and final outing as the archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones. The film is currently slated for a July 29th, 2022 release date.
