Appearing at the Empire Awards last night, director Steven Spielberg confirmed that Lucasfilm’s fifth “Indiana Jones” movie will begin shooting in the United Kingdom in April next year.
That would match with the July 20th 2020 release date that the project set a while back. The film sees Spielberg teaming up with Harrison Ford, who is reprising his iconic role, along with franchise regulars like producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall and writer David Koepp. Speaking at the awards, Spielberg said:
“It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK. The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers – everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here.”
The four previous films have brought in nearly $2 billion at the global box office and this fifth one reportedly won’t be the last in the series despite Ford’s advancing age.
