Indiana Jones 5 has wrapped filming and may have an official title.
Earlier in the week, producer Frank Marshall teased on Twitter that the upcoming Indiana Jones installment was in the “home stretch” of shooting. Now, Marshall has confirmed on the platform that filming is finished, posting a hat with the protagonist’s signature nickname, “Indy.” Being that the film has yet to receive any title beyond Indiana Jones 5, it is possible that the fifth installment will be Indy.
The wrap on Indiana Jones 5 comes over a decade after the film went into production following its predecessor from 2008, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The film ended with Indy (Harrison Ford) finally marrying his love interest, Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen), after an adventure filled with sword fighting, killer ants and even aliens. Despite reviving the franchise after 20 years, the film was not received as a favorite film among fans.
Indiana Jones 5, or the possible Indy, will be the next film from the previous decade to see Ford return to one of his most iconic roles. He reprised his role as the beloved, scruffy-looking Han Solo for 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019). In 2017, he also reprised his role as Rick Deckard for Blade Runner 2049.
As for the upcoming movie, there are many rumors and reports suggesting what viewers can anticipate. Set photos that surfaced back in October 2021 showed what seemed to be Roman gladiators with historically accurate weaponry, hinting at a possible time-travel element to the film. The set photos also gave a look at actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is rumored to have a major role in the film.
Previous reports claim that Waller-Bridge will be portraying Indy’s assistant in the film, which will open the door for her to take control of the franchise. This way, when Ford is finished with his signature whip and fedora, Waller-Bridge can pick them up to continue the story of archeology and adventure. As for this upcoming adventure, aside from potential time-travel, actor Mads Mikkelsen will reportedly play the antagonist of the film as a Nazi scientist.
The wrap on filming also comes after significant delays. Before the most recent date change, the film was set to hit theaters on July 29 this summer, but was delayed for another year this past October.
Indiana Jones 5 is currently scheduled to release on June 30, 2023.
