Disney chairman and CEO Robert Iger confirmed in a recent interview with Bloomberg that the fifth Indiana Jones movie is in the works.

Iger, while talking about other Disney properties, casually mentioned around the 7th minute of the interview, “Indiana Jones, by the way, which will be coming.”

Watch the full interview here.

Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm in October of 2012 for $4 billion, many rumors have brought up whether or not a new Indiana Jones sequel would be made. Steven Speilberg, who directed the past four movies, mentioned in an interview with Screen International, that no one could replace Harrison Ford in the lead role.

However, Chris Pratt, who is known for his role in Jurassic World, had been talked about as potentially moving into the role of Indiana Jones.

The last film in the franchise, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was released in 2008 through Paramount Pictures.

    And while the idea came out of knee-jerk Chris Pratt rumors the week Jurassic World opened in theaters while we were waiting for Disney’s Lucasfilm….isn’t Cars 3 and Toy Story 4 enough to put a restraining order on Bob Iger suggesting any more film projects?

  2. Diane Kalin

    NO!!!! You cannot replace Harrison ever! HE is what makes Indy….There are no other actors who can fill those shoes. I am absolutely ecstatic to see that the new film is in the works, but would not be able to sit through it without him. Sometimes, they just find a perfect fit. This is one of those times. Please do not mess with success!

    I agree with Diane, Harrison Ford is and always will be Indiana Jones!! I like the idea of a new movie, but is it just me or is Disney starting to look like the Wal-Mart of the movie biz?
