As Indiana Jones fans and film buffs know, Indiana Jones 5 has been coming down the tubes for a while now. However, unfortunately, it looks like it won’t be coming out as soon as they had planned.
According to reports, the fifth installment of the legendary series has officially been delayed by the film studios. Previously, studios revealed that the movie was supposed to come out on the 10th of July 2020.
And they also rescheduled filming for April 2019 in the United Kingdom, with production being pushed back just a few months, possibly even a year according to the publication, Variety.
Deadline reported that Jonathan Kasdan, the planned screenwriter, hasn’t signed onto the project yet, and the studio expects him to create a new draft of David Koepp’s original screenplay.
Coincidentally, Kasdan is the son of Lawrence Kasdan, the original writer for the first Indiana Jones, Raiders Of The Lost Ark.
Lawrence and Jon, working as a father-son duo, also wrote the script for the latest Star Wars movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story. However, as it was previously reported, that movie didn’t do as well as Disney had hoped and planned.
As for what the two legendary Hollywood figures are up to lately, Harrison Ford is currently working on Secret Life Of Pets 2 as a voice actor, while Steven Spielberg is in the pre-production stage of the remake of West Side Story. Steven also has plans to work on the historical drama, The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara, starring Mark Rylance.
Either way, it appears as though fans of the series will have to wait a little while longer before they get to see Dr. Henry Walton Jones Junior appear on the big screen on an adventure into the unknown. But due to its infamy and legend, there’s no doubt fans can wait.
