Indiana Jones: Harrison Ford discusses shooting fifth film
Indiana Jones fans have long awaited the next step on the franchise’s journey. Harrison Ford has starred in all four of the films so far, from Raiders of the Lost Ark to The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which was released in 2008. A fifth Indiana Jones film was announced to be in production in 2020, with Lucasfilm apparently taking on the story once again. What’s more, Ford has apparently signed up to continue the journey of his his iconic character once again – but since then no new information has been released.
John Rhys-Davies has now spoken candidly about the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones film.
The as-of-yet untitled movie currently has just a few names signed up to it at the moment, but Rhys-Davies isn’t certain he is going to be a part of it.
In a recent interview the Lord of the Rings actor explained that filming will be starting soon, revealing: “I understand the film is going to be made, allegedly in May.”
Despite the good news, he wasn’t confident in the ability to make a film during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Rhys-Davies continued: “I have the slightest skepticism that the world will be able to shoot a movie like that in May.”
The 76-year-old also touched upon whether he would be returning to the franchise as his long-played character, Egyptian excavator Sallah Mohammed Faisel el-Kahir.
He announced: “I suppose it is possible that I will be asked to be in it. If nominated I will serve! (laughs)”
Although this is the first collection of Indiana Jones news fans have heard for some time, Rhys-Davies went on to shut down any further chat about it until the studio makes an announcement.

The Gimli actor added: “I think we ought to wait a little bit longer and, you know, let our masters actually make announcements and then you can either share my joy or my disappointment. Is that suitably diplomatic?”
There has been no word as of yet about whether Shia LaBeouf will be making a return as “Mutt” in the fifth film.
In The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull it was revealed that Mutt was actually Indie’s son.
The final scenes of the film even showed him putting on the iconic hat, teasing that he would be taking over from Ford in the future.

Indiana Jones fans have had mixed reactions about this, but were particularly upset about a broadcast of Raiders of the Lost Ark that occurred earlier this month.
The Channel 4 broadcast apparently cut out the scene which involved the Nazis’ faces being melted off by the Ark of the Covenant.
Hitting out on Twitter, many viewers were not happy with the edit to their favourite movie.
One wrote: “Channel 4 cut the face melting scene from Indiana Jones. That’s an odd decision. We can take some 1980s PG-rated face-melting at 7:40pm, even during a pandemic. BBC showed it when they had the film.”
Another said: “Channel 4 just butchered the ending of Indiana Jones by cutting out the face melting! WTF!”
A third added: “F***s sake, watching Indiana Jones on Channel 4 and they’ve shown the edit without the melting head, THAT’S THE BEST BIT!!”
Another disgruntled fan said: “Was just saying the other day that I was gutted Indiana Jones hadn’t come on the box this Xmas & it’s on today… better late than never. And loooool at Channel 4 cutting out the head exploding/melting part at the end… thats the most iconic scene?!!” (sic)
The Indiana Jones films are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video now.
