Harrison Ford may be in his 70s, but that doesn't mean he's slowing down -- and that goes double for his on-screen alter ego, Indiana Jones. Ford says that despite his age -- 71, to be exact -- he thinks a fifth "Jones" film could definitely work, with a few tweaks.

"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass," Ford said in a recent interview with the UK's Telegraph. "To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened, and that he still managed to survive. That I can do."

Considering the financial success of the latest Jones outing, 2008's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," it would seem that audiences would get behind another adventure featuring Ford. That movie, which came out nearly 20 years after the previous installment, 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," made close to $800 million at the global box office.

Between public interest and Ford's willingness to star, we're guessing moviegoers won't have to wait too long to see the septuagenarian actor back in Indy's signature fedora and cracking his whip.
