'Indiana Jones 5' CONFIRMED: Disney CEO Bob Iger Finally Admits New Film Is In The Works [VIDEO]
It's been a project that has been kept relatively hushed for some time but now, the official confirmation has come from Disney themselves that Indiana Jones 5 will be made in the future.
Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, confirmed the news while discussing the company's breakaway hit Star Wars: The Force Awakens, their first of that franchise since acquiring it from Lucasfilm, in an appearance on Bloomberg GO.
"Indiana Jones as well, by the way, which will be coming," he slipped into the conversation while talking about Star Wars and the future of the franchise.
It wouldn't be the first time that a film has been confirmed for the franchise which hasn't seen a new installment since 2008, when Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was released.
Kathleen Kennedy, a producer for the franchise, has previously stated that the film was in the works, with an intent of having Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg returning as the lead role and director, but admitted it wasn't a priority with Star Wars on the horizon.
"Harrison really wants to do it, Steven [Spielberg] really wants to do it. We've kicked around a couple of story ideas, but beyond that, I don't know yet." she said previously. "I think there will be one. We'll certainly move forward with Indy. But right now, everybody's just focused on Star Wars."
