“ Indiana Jones 5 ” reached a major milestone in February , because after countless postponements, filming was finally completed. Little or nothing is known about the film so far, which of course fuels fan theories in the long term: Will our whip-wielding archaeologist, who of course is played again by Harrison Ford , have to deal with Nazis again? Did he discover Atlantis? Or does he even travel into space?

Mads Mikkelsen , who is currently in cinemas as Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3: Secrets of Dumbledore , will also appear in Indiana Jones 5. It’s safe to assume that he’ll play the villain, but there’s no information about his role yet. Mikkelsen has now spoken about the new «Indiana Jones» film in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter – and fans can be particularly happy about his statement:
» Raiders of the Lost Ark was one of my favorite films and it just exuded that golden age of 1940s serials — and the fifth film does it too. They take a lot of cues from the first and second films and they get that original feel, the original Indy, there’s something dense and epic about it.”
By the way, Serials is the predecessor of the later TV series. The individual episodes of this film series usually lasted about 30 minutes and were shown in cinemas as a «starter» before the main film.
«Harrison Ford is a monster of a man»
Since Harrison Ford will be 80 years old this year, voices were raised right from the start of production asking whether the actor would still be able to embody Indiana Jones. Mads Mikkelsen also said a few words about this in the interview, which make it clear that Harrison Ford is probably still damn fit:
» It was the first time I met him and he’s an incredibly impressive person. Not only as an actor, but also physically. I remember the first day we shot, it was a night shoot. When we left at 5 a.m., he got on his mountain bike and cycled 50 kilometers. Harrison [Ford] is a monster of a man, a very nice monster.”
Of course, going back to basics could mean we’ll see plenty of familiar faces in front of the camera in Indiana Jones 5. We will find out whether this will be the case on June 29, 2023, when the adventure starts in German cinemas. In addition to Harrison Ford and Mads Mikkelsen, Phoebe Waller-Bridge , Boyd Holbrook , Toby Jones and Antonio Banderas will be seen, among others. Directed and written by James Mangold .
