It’s been 11 years since Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was released. Nevertheless, Ford and Steven Spielberg have promised Indiana Jones 5, with a released date of July 9, 2021, when Ford will be almost 80-years-old. With his advancing age, fans have been speculating over just who could play the archaeologist in a reboot. And now Ford himself has given an answer to that question.
Speaking with USA Today to promote The Secret Life of Pets 2, Ford was adamant that no one could replace him as Indy.
The 76-year-old said: “Nobody is gonna be Indiana Jones.
“Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones. When I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy.”
Continuing in his tongue-in-cheek manner, Ford added: “This is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine this. I’m sorry, man.”
Teasing the movie to EMPIRE, he said: “I can say that whatever it is, it’s gonna be really good!
“We’re still working on the story and the script.
“It’ll be in the sixties.”
Indiana Jones 5 will be released in cinemas on July 9, 2021.
