The upcoming Indiana Jones 5 is putting together a very impressive cast. Today it was announced that Mads Mikkelsen has joined the James Mangold film, though his role is being kept undwraps.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge was also confirmed to join the film earlier this week. Though Mangold is directing the 5th film, Spielberg remains heavily involved and will serve as a producer. Production is set to begin this summer with a tentative release date of July 29, 2022.
Lucasfilm and Disney is hoping to send actor Harrison Ford off in fashion and avoid the blunder that ended up being Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Now just because this might be Ford’s last adventure doesn’t mean Disney will allow the franchise to end. With the success of Star Wars and Marvel Studios has had with their spin-offs and hope to do the same with the Indiana Jones franchise.
