Steven Spielberg has teased the production start date for Indiana Jones 5, saying that he will start filming the next adventure next spring.
The director confirmed at the Rakuten TV Empire Awards on Sunday night that he will begin production next April in the United Kingdom. “It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK,” Spielberg said.
Previously dated for July 19, 2019, the film was pushed to open on July 10, 2020. Spielberg is set to return to direct and executive produce star Harrison Ford. It is worth mentioning that Ford will be 76 when the movie starts shooting, and 77 when it opens. The project was announced in 2016.
The ‘Indiana Jones’ films have grossed roughly $2 billion at the global box office.
Spielberg’s upcoming Ready Player One, will hit the screens on March 30. He most recently directed The Post, which was nominated for two Oscars and won the AFI Award for Movie of the Year.
