David Koepp has been hired to pen the screenplay for the fifth film in the “Indiana Jones” franchise at Disney Pictures.
It will be a familiar job for Koepp who penned the previous film, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” along with numerous other Spielberg films including “Jurassic Park,” “The Lost World,” and “War of the Worlds”.
Harrison Ford is set to return to the role of Dr. Jones once he wraps work reprising his role of Rick Deckard in Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner” follow-up. Producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall are also onboard, but – for now at least – it looks like neither George Lucas or Shia LaBeouf will be involved.
“Indiana Jones 5” is currently slated for a July 19th 2019 release.
