The major blockbuster franchises of today tend to out-shadow their 20th century counterparts with their gargantuan budgets and elaborate special effects, however many of those 20th century franchises paved the way for the modern film industry. Those like the Terminator franchise and the original James Bond films are beloved for their timelessness, standing toe-to-toe with virtually any film franchise to release since the dawn of the century. One franchise that tends to be forgotten however is the Indiana Jones franchise, plummeting star Harrison Ford into the depths of the world’s harshest jungles in search of treasure and mystery throughout the 1980’s. The franchise was rebooted in 2008 with Ford reprising the titular role in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and was met with positive reviews, receiving a 78% positive rating from Rotten Tomatoes despite taking place nearly two decades after the last installment of the Indiana Jones franchise. From the looks of it though that wasn’t the end as another installment of the franchise is currently in the works, and new set photos have emerged from the production of Indiana Jones 5 that potentially tease what’s to come.
Despite not being the youngest man in Hollywood, Ford is eager and ready to get back to the role of archaeologist extraordinaire Indiana Jones. No matter how many decades between films, Ford is seemingly more than prepared to remind everyone who Indiana Jones is even four decades since the franchise’s first film was released. Now we have an idea of where the upcoming project is being filmed based upon some leaked photos highlight the set being built, featured below. Those images were leaked via a Reddit post and note that the location is in the U.K., meaning that Indy will be venturing across the pound for the upcoming film. Those photos can also be seen in a tweet reposted below. Other details surrounding the project remain sparse as Ford and company work to preserve the magic of the film.
Harrison Ford is nothing short of a Hollywood heavyweight with a resume that dates back to the 1960’s and includes both the Indian Jones franchise and three films from the Star Wars franchise. Those are quite arguably two of the most iconic film franchises in the history of the movie industry, and they are on one man’s resume. Age is just a number for Harrison Ford and he is virtually guaranteed to give a remarkable performance, and he will do so in the near future once again as Indiana Jones. While the film is rumored to release sometime next year, fans can remain on the lookout for further details about Indiana Jones 5.
