Indiana Jones is back! Harrison Ford has now been spotted on set for the upcoming sequel Indiana Jones 5, with the actor seen wearing the intrepid archaeologist’s iconic costume, including the beloved hat, as well as the now-familiar surgical mask, as Ford, now 78 years old, gears up for one last adventure.
“Exclusive photo we have now! Harrison Ford seen on Set of Indiana Jones 5,” the caption reads, with fans sure to be very excited to see the actor in his character again, especially after so many setbacks that have plagued the production of the upcoming fifth film.
Now that shooting is in full swing (production is reportedly already a day behind according to some sources), we can expect a lot more from Indiana Jones 5 the coming weeks. While plot details remain a closely guarded secret, though apparently not quite secret enough, lingering rumors have surfaced suggesting the franchise will be sent into space. While Indy herself may not be firing into the cosmos, reports now claim that: Indiana Jones 5 the adventurer will reunite with his old enemies the Nazis through their involvement in the 60s Space Race.
This is in line with what we do know about the film, with Mangold teasing that Indy’s fifth adventure could go to a 60s setting, saying, “The Velvet Underground is fucking awesome. That’s it. That’s my tweet. ( Note – I’m mentally alive in ’60s New York, because that’s where all the movies I’m working on are set.)” While this is far from a confirmation, the timeline certainly follows that of 2008 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull which Indy dropped in 1957.
In addition to Ford playing the title role of Indiana JonesDirector James Mangold recently added to the film’s supporting cast by recruiting several big names such as Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen and Boyd Holbrook to the ensemble. Mikkelsen, best known for his role as the cinema’s most charming serial killer in Hannibal, will reportedly play the play’s villain, “a Nazi scientist enlisted by the United States government at NASA to work on the space agency’s moon landing initiative.”
Billions and Black Panther star Shaunette Renée Wilson has also now been announced as a member of the supporting cast, with the same sources claiming she is Mikkelsen’s “CIA handler responsible for “babysitting” the Nazi scientist turned NASA recruit.” In addition to Mikkelsen’s Nazi villain, the film will also feature a female villain, described as “an evil and brutal killer”, who will work alongside Mikkelsen’s character.
So it seems increasingly likely that waarschijnlijk Indiana Jones 5 will indeed be at least partly related to the real-life Operation Paperclip, a secret American intelligence program in which the United States recruited several German scientists, engineers and technicians from the former Nazi Germany at the end of World War II. Many of these staff members were former members, and some were former leaders, of the Nazi Party.
Filming on Indiana Jones 5 is currently underway in the UK, with camera production in Pinewood and other locations in the area. Several other recently released set images have also appeared online, depicting a Nazi train and even a stuntman wearing a Harrison Ford mask, leading many to believe an old Indy will feature in the film. Indiana Jones 5 is slated to hit theaters on July 29, 2022. This comes from Twitter user IJ Adventure Outpost.
