The long-awaited next chapter of the Indiana Jones franchise has wrapped filming!
The yet-untitled Indiana Jones 5 began filming in June 2021, with such a lengthy production schedule presumably at least in part due to the injury suffered by star Harrison Ford on set. But on Sunday, producer Frank Marshall tweeted an announcement that the film has wrapped shooting:
Marshall produced both Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, while executive producing Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade. Joining Marshall as a producer on the film is someone he knows well and has a long history with – Kathy Kennedy, who has worked on every Indiana Jones film as well and is the current Lucasfilm President (and also happens to be married to Marshall as well). The film is being directed by James Mangold, who will also produce the movie alongside Marshall, Kennedy, Steven Spielberg, and Simon Emanuel.
Indy 5 has endured several delays in release date, but is currently planned for a June 23, 2023 release in theaters. At the Disney Investory Day in December 2020, Kennedy referred to it as the final installment in the franchise, and whether or not it actually is or not, it’s likely the final chapter for Harrison Ford, who returns for the fifth time to the iconic role. He’s joined by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelson, among others, and John Williams is once more returning to provide the score – marking his fifth chapter in the franchise as well.
