With Indiana Jones 5 set to begin production this Spring, the latest instalment in the action-adventure franchise has added another member to its growing cast.
According to TheWrap, the film has added German actor Thomas Kretschmann, who is perhaps best known for playing Baron Wolfgang von Strucker in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, in a currently undisclosed role.
While plot details are currently being kept under wraps at Disney and Lucasfilm, we do know Kretschmann has joined a cast that includes Harrison Ford as the titular character, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) and Mads Mikkelsen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Hannibal) – whose roles are also being kept secret.
Indiana Jones 5 will see director James Mangold helm Harrison Ford’s fifth and final outing as the archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones with Steven Spielberg, Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall serving as producers, while John Williams will once again compose the score. The film is currently slated for a July 29th, 2022 release date.
