Harrison Ford talks Indiana Jones 5

“It’s perfectly appropriate for him to come back again”

 
Having signed on to join The Expendables 3, Harrison Ford is apparently keen on another action sequel in the form of a fifth outing as Indiana Jones.
 
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Ford confirmed his interest in making Indiana Jones 5, and dismissed the notion that he is no longer young enough to play the part.
 
“We’ve seen the character develop and grow over a period of time,” says Ford, “and it’s perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn’t necessarily have to kick as much ass.” 
 
“To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do.”

Whether a fifth film is actually in the pipeline remains to be seen, but it certainly sounds as though at 71 years of age, Harrison Ford has no plans to slow down just yet… 
 
He'll next be seen on-screen in Paranoia, Ender's Game and Anchorman: The Legend Continues...

Would you like to see Ford return for one more crack of the whip? Tell us, below!

      As long as its not as bad as the last one, that was quite a disappointment.

      As long as there are no aliens, and no Shia, I'll be happy.

      Gotta admire the man – he's got a lot of fight in him. Many people give up their stuff before they even hit 60.

      brilliant! loved the last one! loved the way they handled Indy getting older, i had a lump in my throat when he got on the train to leave the university for good, and the moment that heand Mutt bond over the ludicrous chase scene was great ............Indy's encountered Jehovah's face melting bad a*s angels, called on Shiva to magically ignite sacred hindu rocks, drank from the magic cup of Christ, i can't really envisage a scenerio that would make me think 'no way, that would never happen'

      Yes please! Get in a great screenwriter, ignore George Lucas, forget entirely about Shia/Mutt and end on a high!

      I'd love this to happen. The 4th Indy was the 4th best Indy film. It disappointed in terms of CGI, but still felt like an Indy film. I loved the opening scene in the warehouse (but hated the Gophers), I liked the Jungle Chase (but hated the Mutt sword fight and the vine swinging), I enjoyed the motorbike chase through the college campus too, and felt the tomb raiding scene (where the skull is discovered) was just missing the odd booby trap and moment of peril. Spalko's demise was terrible CGI too, and looked more like she was teleported than killed. If they do a 5th, it'll be the 6th time Harrison Ford has played Indy (as he was also in the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles episode Mystery of the Blues). In Young Indy, Harrison played an old Indy who was still able to be emroiled in a car chase. Age doesn't have to slow the action, if the action involves car chases, boat chases, etc....

      Why not? Budget £60 million and lose the CG nonsense. And Shia. One love interest, two sidekicks.

      I liked Kingdom of the Crystal Skill if you ignore the s**t CGI, c**p ending, the obsession with gophers, terrible set pieces, poor casting, rubbish script, etc...If you forget about all that, what's not to like? George Lucas and Steven Spielberg took a huge dump on their own legacy and you all know it.

      Yes FBPBoland...we know it and they know it, Lucas has become Hollywood toxic, an industry joke, he vetoed Frank Darabonts Indy 4 script (which Spielberg loved) in favour of his own atrocity. with that and the laughing stock Star War prequels no-one will touch him. Thats probably why Spielberg has distanced himself from GL, and started hanging out with the likes of Peter Jackson and James Cameron, people who are actually pushing the boundaries of cinema, not caking everything in CGI with all the subtlety of a rabid badger with the sh/ts.

      I would only be interested if the following stipulations were met. 1. No George Lucas. 2. No Shia Lad****e 3. Bring back Frank Darabont and tackle the fall of Atlantis !

      my neighbours ex girlfriends youga teacher thought that the nazi double agent monkey in raiders was naff too, and would much rather watch another indy movie with his son than hear 'oky dokey doctor jones!' or that shrill screaming woman. she thought the gophers were funny, and loved the Tarzan homage. and she earns $50,000 dollars a second for breaking wind, so suck it!
