Director Steven Spielberg revealed the fifth “Indiana Jones” movie is set to begin filming in April 2019 in the United Kingdom.
Spielberg took the stage at the Rakuten TV Empire Awards last night to accept the Legend of Our Lifetime award. During his speech, he mentioned returning to the UK next year to begin filming “Indiana Jones 5.”
“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,” he said.
