"Indiana Jones 5" finally has a start date.
Steven Spielberg is one of Hollywood's most prolific filmmakers. The sequel has long been on his plate, but last year, he decided to make "The Post" instead. And he was still in post-production on "Ready Player One," the sci-fi adventure that hits theaters March 29.
But now that those projects are done, Spielberg can finally move on to "Indiana Jones 5." Last night, at the Rakuten TV Empire Awards, the director revealed the production's start date and location.
"It's always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK," he said while accepting a lifetime achievement award.
"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."
This would be the first "Indiana Jones" movie shot entirely in the U.K.
Star Harrison Ford will be back to wear the fedora as Indy, but little else is known about the movie, which is slated for release July 10, 2020.
