Though tainted by negative reviews, Disney has confirmed that the 2008 box office success, Indiana Jones, will be making is on the way on screens sooner than we think.
In 2016 Disney announced that Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg would working together to bring the 5th installment of Indiana Jones. The release date however has already been pushed back from July 19, 2019, to July 10, 2020.
But according to media reports the film might be arriving sooner than said as Spielberg eyes Indiana Jones 5 as his next film. A source also revealed that the 71-year-old director won't be taking a breather after Indiana Jones as he plans to pursue his dream projects— one of them being an updated version of West Side Story.
Spielberg gave audiences a hint of what to expect saying, "The one thing I will tell you is I'm not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it."
Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn called Indiana Jones "one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history" and raved about the next film, saying, "It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor, and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven."
In an interview the critically-acclaimed director said he was optimistic about the recognition female directors will receive at this year’s Academy Awards saying, “There’s also a watershed happening right now, slowly, maybe not fast enough, for women directors,”.
