The new film marks the fifth time that Ford has cast himself as the titular archaeologist in the Indiana Jones franchise.

He previously starred as Indy in three films in the 1980s, before reprising the role in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which premiered in 2008.

Directed by James Mangold, Indiana Jones 5 is due out July 29, 2022.

The film, which began production in the UK this month, also stars franchise newcomers Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen.

Last year, Ford expressed his excitement about returning for Indiana Jones 5 during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“It’s going to be fun,” Ford said at the time. “I’m excited. They’re great fun to make.”

The fifth Indy film is the first in the saga that will not be directed by Steven Spielberg, who is working as a producer on the film.

Mangold, who recently had a spat on Twitter about the upcoming production, is no stranger to getting big projects done. His past credits include the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line, the superhero epic Logan, and the race car drama Ford v Ferrari, which received a 2020 Best Picture Oscar nomination.

The Indiana Jones original Raiders of the Lost Ark celebrated its 40th anniversary earlier this month.

Ford previously broke his leg in an accident in 2014 while working on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
