In 2 months.
I'll believe it when it happens.
Not that I’m calling Ford a liar, but I feel that there would have been more news on this if they were at the point where they were two months away from shooting. I haven’t even heard they have a script yet.
They do. It's been passed around a number of times through different writers, as I think you can see if you look back a bit further in this thread. If it is true that they are filming in two months, then hopefully it means they've landed on something that all involved parties like. Or maybe it's like Rogue One where it will start filming without a script.
Disney still has the movie on the release calendar for July 2021. If they actually do shoot soon, it could really make that date.
Spielberg shoots fast. Indy won’t need the effects that say, Ready Player One did. If Spielberg could do The Post from start to finish in like six months, he can do Indy in a year. Paramount did Star Trek Beyond in less than a year, and that’s a $200 million big effects tentpole. It’s doable.
Yeah, I'm not going to say that it's a lock to happen but Spielberg can do it in that time.
And Lucasfilm has gotten very good at hitting release dates without scripts
This would suggest that it's not shooting anytime soon...
Steven Spielberg Won’t Direct ‘Indiana Jones 5,’ James Mangold in Talks to Replace
After a long development process, Steven Spielberg is handing the directing reins on “Indiana Jones 5” to another filmmaker for the first time in the franchise’s 39-year history, Variety has learned.
Sources say that while a deal hasn’t closed, “Ford v Ferrari” director James Mangold is in talks to take the job. Mangold has been put in this situation before when he took over the “Wolverine” franchise; 2017’s “Logan” was a blockbuster, grossing $619 million globally, and earning Mangold an Oscar nomination for adapted screenplay.
Spielberg will remain as a hands-on producer on “Indy 5.” According to a source close to the filmmaker, the decision to leave the director’s chair was entirely Spielberg’s, in a desire to pass along Indy’s whip to a new generation to bring their perspective to the story.
Although I'm a fan of James Mangold, I'm not sure I want to see Indiana Jones that's not directed by Steven Spielberg.
This is a bad decision. Since Harrison Ford is still playing and probably for the last time, Spielberg should direct. You want to pass along Indy to a new generation? Do it with the next film where Indiana Jones is recast.
Nope. "Let it go, Indiana."
Best news I've heard in a while. This film was never going to happen if they're waiting for a green light from Spielberg. Now there's a chance.
I'd love to have them recast IJ as well, but I'm probably OK with a Ford/Mangold film.
If he doesn't want to do it, there's nothing they can do about that.
But the creative forces behind Indiana Jones were Spielberg and George Lucas. If neither one of them are involved, and Ford is now in his 70s, at what point does it cease to be the Indiana Jones that we know and love and want to see?
Then recast Ford. It's time. Because it is also the time to reboot and go back in time. Indy should be in the early 20th century.
We saw how well recasting Harrison Ford worked for Solo. Alden Erenreich actually did a good job with that, but the audience just didn't want to see someone else other than Ford in the role.
I get why Disney wants to do this. And I say this as a fan of James Mangold, who is probably as good of a replacement for Spielberg as you could get. But I really think it's time to let the franchise go. Let him just be married to Marion and live happily ever after and that's the end.
I don't know. I wouldn't put the failure of Solo on recasting Ford. James Bond is recast all the time.
And Batman, and Superman, and Spider-Man, and Joker, etc., etc. All of those seem mostly successful.
With Solo, I think it was an uninteresting story more than the casting.
I still say Chris Pratt should be the new Indy. He'll need a new franchise to replace JW once Part 3 is in the can.
All of those examples have literary or comic book origins with years of print history behind them, and were not film characters created out of whole cloth like Han Solo. Ford originated the role, and for me, the movie Solo was very much something that didn't need to be made. I had no real interest seeing another actor play that character. I feel the same way about Indiana Jones, for the same reason.
