Almost ten years after Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hit theaters and after years of promises and rumors and dead-ends, it’s official: Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones, the two-fisted archaeologist with a thing for punching Nazis and recovering ancient artifacts, is returning for a fifth film due out in a little over two years.
According to an official statement on the Walt Disney Company’s website, the untitled fifth Indiana Jones movie will arrive on July 19, 2019 and the whole gang is getting back together. Harrison Ford will return as Indy, Steven Spielberg will step behind the camera once more, and Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce. Here’s what you need to know from that statement:
Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.
I’m pleased that Harrison Ford is coming back and this didn’t turn into a reboot with Bradley Cooper.
With that said, Harrison is 74. I also kinda hope they call it something as simple Indiana Jones 5.

Peeps… When I was 12 or so I ordered a leather bullwhip from a catalog or the back of a magazine. Some such, whatever..
No matter how hard I tried, I could never get it to attach to something so I could swing across chasms and such like Indiana Jones did.
Still bugs me.

Our ever reliable sources (same folks who told us about Rocket Raccoon) are informing us that while Harrison Ford might still play Indiana Jones in the next film of the franchise, the window of making that happen is getting smaller and smaller.
There is a date and if Indiana Jones 5 is not moving forward by then, the studios are 100% prepared to recast a younger Dr. Jones and ready up a new trilogy.
Don’t think of it as a reboot but just recasting the same way the James Bond (Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig) movies have been doing for the better part of five decades.
And who just might be one of the actors that the studio is looking at ? The word is that they are looking at several but Bradley Cooper is at the top of the list.
[…] Cooper is one of the biggest male stars in Hollywood right now without a major franchise […] and he could do the part justice […]
While I am usually against rebooting franchises just for the sake of doing it, in my opinion, Indiana Jones is long overdue for a reboot. Or, should I say, a simple recasting (and definitely not a remake of an existing film; I think anyone who attempts to remake Raiders of the Lost Ark who aren’t a group of little kids deserve to fail.) Indy was conceived by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg as the American James Bond, and 007 has been played by six actors now over the course of fifty years […] It’s time this generation had their own version of the estimable Dr. Henry Jones Jr. to call its own.
Just let Dr. Jones rest in peace, he doesn’t need to go the way of Bond. We don’t need another sequel or reboot or revamp. It’ll kill the magic and spoil the legacy.
This generation doesn’t need a version to call their own, they need their own hero.
The Indiana franchise is huge but must everything be milked to the point of zero credibility?
I sound like a crotchety old man.

We don’t really even know how to start this post. Yesterday we received a package addressed to “Henry Walton Jones, Jr.”. We sort-of shrugged it off and put it in our bin of mail for student workers to sort and deliver to the right faculty member— we get the wrong mail a lot.
Little did we know what we were looking at. When our student mail worker snapped out of his finals-tired haze and realized who Dr. Jones was, we were sort of in luck: this package wasn’t meant for a random professor in the Stat department. It is addressed to “Indiana” Jones.
How fun is this?
