'Indiana Jones 5' News & Rumors: Harrison Ford Interested in Reprising Role, 'It's Perfectly Appropriate' [VIDEO]
Harrison Ford discussed the possibility of a fifth Indiana Jones film with The Telegraph in a report published Tuesday.
The 71-year-old actor, who has played Indiana Jones in all four films of the franchise, suggested that he was open to the idea of playing the adventurous archaeologist in another film.
"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass," Ford explained.
Ford portrayed Indiana Jones in his youth in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, which were released in 1981, 1983 and 1989, respectively. He reprised the role in 2008 for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, in which he played an aged version of the character.
"To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do," Ford continued.
This isn't the first time Ford has expressed interest in making a fifth Jones film. While doing press for his film Morning Glory in 2010, he admitted that he would "love to do another," but added that it was up to Indiana Jones creator George Lucas and director Steven Spielberg.

In its first four installments, the Indiana Jones film franchise has achieved close to $2 billion worldwide. There have not been any plans announced to produce a fifth film, though Ford's willingness to reprise his role again may start a discussion among movie producers.
