Ladies and gentlemen, it’s done: the fifth Indiana Jones movie is officially in the can. After years of delays, a significant director swap (no Steven Spielberg this time, but a talented replacement in James Mangold), and a globe-trotting shoot, cinema’s premier archaeologist is one step closer to hitting the big screen again. Having begun shooting last summer, Indiana Jones 5 has now finished rolling cameras – as confirmed by Mangold, and legendary producer Frank Marshall.
Marking the end of production, Marshall shared a photo on social media of an Indiana Jones cap with the simple caption: “That’s a wrap!!!” No word yet on whether this is the hat Indy will be wearing in the new movie in a shock replacement of that classic fedora.
As for Mangold, he shared an iconic shot from Raiders Of The Lost Ark as he prepares to enter into a new phase of the film’s creation, writing: “And so begins the first day after the storm…”
Mangold is also behind the screenplay for this one, writing alongside acclaimed playwright Jez Butterworth and his brother John-Henry Butterworth. Spielberg is producing this time, alongside Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy, while John Williams is once again on board to score the film.
As well as the legendary Harrison Ford, the cast includes Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, Toby Jones, Antonio Banderas, Thomas Kretschmann, and Shaunette Renée Wilson. Little is known about the film so far, but it shot in various places across the UK, from Bamburgh Castle to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, to Glasgow Glencoe in Scotland, before moving to Sicily and Morocco. Indiana Jones 5 (don’t expect that title to stick) is expected to arrive in UK cinemas on 30 June 2023.
