The next installment in the Indiana Jones franchise is set to release on July 29th, 2022, and has assembled a fantastic cast to star alongside Harrison Ford as he returns to play the famous archeologist for the first time since Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull over a decade ago. The film has been rumored to begin production sometime this summer as previous casting reports indicate, and it seems like that is just the case.
It is being reported by Deadline that the next Indiana Jones film is set to begin filming next week at Pinewood Studios, located in the UK. While details on the story remain under wraps, Deadline mentions that the film will be set in the 1960s and reportedly revolves around the space race while also being rumored to film at Bamburgh castle at some point. It’s unclear whether or not this will be Ford’s last adventure as the titular explorer, but it would be interesting to see the film serve as a sort of apssing of the torch for Jones as a new adventurer would follow in his footsteps.
James Mangold is writing and directing the project, making it the first Indiana Jones film not directed by Steven Spielberg. Spielberg, however, remains on the project as a producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel. Starring alongside Harrison Ford will be Madds Mikkelsen, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, and Thomas Kretschmann.
