Harrison Ford Says Indiana Jones Could Return for Fifth Movie
Harrison Ford still isn’t quite ready to hang up Indy’s hat just yet.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, the Ender’s Game and recently signed Expendables 3 star revealed that, even at 71, he would be up for returning as Indiana Jones in a fifth installment.
“We’ve seen the character develop and grow over a period of time 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,” Ford said.
“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.”
Ford has been keen on another movie for a few years now, and financially, another chapter in the franchise makes sense. The 2008 film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull grossed nearly $800 million on a budget of $185 million. Plus, the success of Disney’s upcoming Star Wars VII could spark interest in another Indiana Jones. However, no word on whether George Lucas and Steven Spielberg would come back as well.
Last year, Ford discussed another of his famous performances, saying he would be open to reprising his role as Han Solo.
