Many of us are still coming out of the foggy haze of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, so the news that Indiana Jones 5 begins principal photography next April has us a little shook.

In an interview with Empire Magazine, director Steven Spielberg – who has Ready Player One arriving on March 29th – confirmed the news.

“It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK. The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers — everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here.”

There is no word on what adventure Indiana Jones will take, though we should probably point out that Harrison Ford will be 76 years old when production begins. To put that into better perspective, according to our Twitter follower Micael Miller, Henry Fonda was 76 years old when he began filming On Golden Pond.

According to Digital Spy, the latest installment should see a much older Indiana Jones.

“I’m looking forward to working with Steven [Spielberg] again and to revisiting the character later in life,” he explained. “It’s interesting to see it in a different light.
