After being delayed several times, Indiana Jones 5 is finally happening!
As per the latest reports, the fifth installment of the popular franchise will feature actor Mads Mikkelsen alongside the previously announced star cast of Hollywood veteran Harrison Ford and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Furthermore, James Mangold is taking over the director’s seat from Steven Spielberg, who helmed the first four Indiana Jones films.

So far no further details have been revealed about the latest installment of the franchise and it’s unclear that what’s going to be the character of Mikkelsen in the movie. But it’s confirmed that it will mark 78-year-old Ford’s return as the legendary hero archeologist.
Its been more than four decades when the first film of the franchise was Raiders of the Lost Ark which debuted in 1981.
