INDY IS BACK: Harrison Ford returns to his role as Indiana Jones
“Indiana Jones. Always knew someday, you’d come walking back through my door.”
And he has! Harrison Ford has begun filming on a new Indiana Jones adventure. The as of yet untitled fifth film in the series is directed by the man behind 2017 hit, ‘Logan’ - James Mangold.
Pictures from filming in the UK have started to circulate on social media, showing Harrison, the masked-up 78-year-old wearing his iconic hat and jacket while shooting on the street.
A star-studded Cast
The fifth outing for the iconic archaeologist began production in the past week, with Ford set to be joined this time around by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Mads Mikkelsen and Thomas Kretschmann.
Indiana Jones 5 has been in development for well over a decade, and Ford previously explained how they didn't want to revisit the franchise unless they knew that they could “kill it”.
"I don't really want to give them what they want to see, I want to give them something they didn't anticipate," he said.
"They are used to a degree of disappointment when you revisit. Certainly, the Marvel movies have made a spectacular example of a success that worked the other way around, they killed it!"
The star added:
"We're not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we are in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best. We've got some scheduling issues and a few script things to do but we are determined to get it right before we get it made."
Filming is taking place near Grosmont with props including tanks, a guard tower and a steam train dressed in the colours of 1940s German railways, as well as Nazi uniforms.
No official statement has been released about the production, which is the second major Hollywood filming contract that the North Yorkshire Moors Railway has secured this year.
In April, Tom Cruise shot action scenes for the latest Mission:Impossible film on a section of the North York Moors Railway. You can catch our article on this here!
Indiana Jones 5 is scheduled for release on July 29, 2022.
