    Harrison Ford is 78 years old, so I dunno what kinda flick this will be? https://deadline.com/2021/04/indiana-jones-5-mads-mikkelsen-joins-harrison-ford-and-phoebe-waller-bridge-in-sequel-1234732751/

    ‘Indiana Jones 5’: Mads Mikkelsen Joins Harrison Ford and Phoebe Waller-Bridge In Sequel
    EXCLUSIVE: Following the news that Phoebe Waller-Bridge had landed the female lead in the next Indiana Jones movie, Lucasfilm has found Harrison Ford’s next co-star in Mads Mikkelsen, who is set to join the next installment. James Mangold is taking over directing reins from Steven Spielberg, who still is serving as a producer and is very much involved in various elements of the film. Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel will join Spielberg as producers. John Williams, who has worked on every score in the 40-year-old franchise including its iconic theme, also will return as composer.
    The hope is to start production this summer, with Mangold meeting with other talent for other roles in preparation for production. Plot details are still vague on what new adventure awaits Jones, as are details behind who Mikkelsen will play. The film is set to bow on July 29, 2022.
    The film marks another major franchise Mikkelsen is boarding after coming on to the Fantastic Beasts movies; he replaces Johnny Depp as Grindelwald after Depp parted ways with the part earlier this year following his recent legal troubles.
    Mikkelsen is also coming off some of the best reviews of his career in the Danish film Another Round, which earned a handful of Oscar nominations including Best International Feature and Best Director. At the BAFTAs, where Mikkelsen was nominated for best actor, the film took home the award for Best Film Not in the English Language. Next up for him is the Riders of Justice.

    Indiana Jones and the Quest for the Adult Diaper

    It's said to be the last Indiana Jones movie, but it's unclear exactly
    what that means. It could be:

    - the last movie starring Harrison Ford before the torch (and whip
    and hat) is passed to someone else ... although Shia Le Beouff
    has gone wacko and probably won't return as Indy's son, but in
    these "Politically Correct" stupidity days there could well be a
    'suddenly discovered' daughter, probably black/asian and in with
    a leg missing).

    - the last *movie* before moving on to a TV series following the
    adventures of a younger Indy (along the lines of the previous
    show), maybe even animated with Ford continuing to voice the
    character (he has done animation before, although not a major
    role).

    Either way, it's unlikely Disney is going to suddenly stop making
    anything in this lucrative franchise - they're already beating Star
    Wars and Marvel into the ground with new movies, TV shows, books, etc.

    Well, they bought Lucasfilm. Wouldn't that cover it?

    Why is the female lead being recast anyway though -- I thought the last
    film, mediocre as it was, put Indy & Marion together for good.

    Is the RAIDERS franchise a Lucasfilm property? I know Lucas was involved in producing them, but Spielberg had just as much, if not more, involvement, so
    it could just as easily by DreamWorks. I have no idea who owns it.

    It didn't say romantic lead. In the last film, mediocre as it was, the female lead was Cate Blanchett, not Karen Allen.

    Yep, Disney bought Lucasfilm, which includes *everything* ... Star
    Wars, Indiana Jones, Willow, Howard the Duck, movies, TV shows, ILM,
    Skywalker Sound, Lucasarts, etc.

    About the only thing they didn't get was Skywalker Ranch itself since
    that is owned by George Lucas himself rather than the Lucasfilm
    company. Presumably Disney pays George Lucas rent to let Skywalker
    Sound continue working there.



    Why is the female lead being recast anyway though -- I thought the last
    film, mediocre as it was, put Indy & Marion together for good.

    Marion is now Indy's wife, but that's no guarantee she is the main
    female character in the new movie's story, or even in it at all. He can
    easily be on another overseas adventure without her.

    Potentially, if they are setting it up for a younger actor to take
    over, it could be Ford sitting in his rocking chair as narrator
    reminiscing about a past adventure.
