Sad news (good news?) for Indiana Jones fans – the fifth movie in the series is behind schedule and will miss the July 10th, 2020 planned release date.
This all comes from Variety, who reports that shooting has been pushed back several months to a year. While no confirmation has been made from Lucasfilm, it makes sense that Disney and Kathleen Kennedy may have decided to reexamine what is going on with the Indiana Jones story in light of the recent slow Solo box office draw, and the fact that Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was pretty much disliked by everyone.
There is a lot that can be done when a film goes before the lens, and even in the post-production stage, but if the script is flawed, it doesn’t matter how much is added or redone on the backend, the film will suffer.
