Harrison Ford may be back, whip in tow, as Indiana Jones. The actor told the BBC that he, Spielberg and Lucas have come with the bones of an idea for the fifth instalment in the Indy franchise.
He said: “Steven and George and I are sort of agreed on a germ of an idea and we’re seeing what comes of it.”
Explaining the trio’s working methods, he said, “The process works like this: We come to some basic agreement and then George goes away for a long time and works on it. Then Steven and I get it in some form, some embryonic form. Then if we like it we start working with George on it and at some point down the line it’s ready and we do it.”
Paramount would doubtless like Ford and Co. to get a move on, seeing as the previous Indy-instalment Kingdom of the Crystal Skull made almost $800m worldwide.
Assuming a sequel is greenlit and takes a couple of years to make, Ford would be 70-years-old by the time Indy 5 hits cinema screens.
