After what has seemed like years of constant speculation about the possibility of a fifth Indiana Jones movie, confirmation has come that that it will be made somewhere down the pipeline, though no specific date is being thrown out just yet.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that the plans for a future film have been in the works since Disney and Paramount brokered a deal back in 2012, though she admitted that it is still in very early stages with very little actually planned.
"[The movie] will one day be made inside this company," she said. "When it will happen, I'm not quite sure. We haven't started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it."
There is no clear plans for the film to be made very soon, which once again opens up the endless speculation about just who would take on the iconic role for the film. The character of Indiana Jones was played by Harrison Ford in all four of the previous films, but fans have been noting over the years that the action movie star is getting older (he's currently 72).
Because the film's potential production doesn't have a start date, it's impossible to predict Ford's age when development really begins, meaning he could be axed out of the role completely. As a result, several other names have been tossed around as potential replacements for him in a new film, including Bradley Cooper, Robert Pattinson, and most recently, Chris Pratt. There is no word on if any of the actors will actually take over the role.
