The fifth installment in the beloved adventure series is set to hit theaters in 2023, and fans couldn’t be more excited. But what do we know about the cast of this highly anticipated movie? Here’s everything we’ve learned so far.
Harrison Ford Returns as Indy
First things first: Harrison Ford is back as Indiana Jones. The iconic actor first played the role in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, and he’s reprised the character in three subsequent films. Despite being in his late 70s, Ford is still as charismatic and charming as ever, and fans can’t wait to see him in action once again.
The Supporting Cast
Of course, no Indiana Jones movie would be complete without a strong supporting cast. Joining Ford in the upcoming film are some familiar faces, as well as some newcomers to the franchise.
Returning Cast Members
One of the most exciting returning cast members is Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The Fleabag star is known for her biting wit and impeccable comedic timing, and she’s sure to bring a fresh energy to the Indiana Jones universe. Also returning is John Rhys-Davies, who played Indy’s friend Sallah in the original trilogy.
New Cast Members
Joining the cast for the first time are Mads Mikkelsen and Antonio Banderas. Mikkelsen is best known for his roles in Hannibal and Casino Royale, and he’s sure to bring a sense of danger and unpredictability to the film. Banderas, meanwhile, is a veteran actor with a diverse range of roles under his belt. It will be interesting to see what he brings to the Indiana Jones universe.
As of now, details about the plot of Indiana Jones 5 are being kept tightly under wraps. However, we do know that the film will be set in the 1960s, and that it will involve Indy facing off against a new villain. There are also rumors that the film will explore the relationship between Indy and his estranged son, played by Shia LaBeouf in the previous movie.
Another exciting aspect of Indiana Jones 5 is the creative team behind the film. Steven Spielberg, who directed the first four movies, was originally set to direct the fifth installment. However, he stepped down from the project in 2020, citing creative differences. James Mangold, who directed Logan and Ford v Ferrari, is now at the helm of the film.
The screenplay for Indiana Jones 5 was written by Jonathan Kasdan, who also worked on the screenplay for Solo: A Star Wars Story. He’s joined by his father, Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote the screenplays for The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens. With such a talented team of writers, we can expect the script to be top-notch.
Indiana Jones 5 is shaping up to be a thrilling adventure that fans of the franchise won’t want to miss. With Harrison Ford back in the lead role, along with an impressive supporting cast and creative team, the film is sure to be a hit.
