Indiana Jones may be the Grumpiest Action Hero of all now, but Harrison Ford is still excited about playing the iconic character.

When asked about "Indiana Jones 5" by Variety at a SAG-AFTRA event where he was being honored, the actor responded, "We’ve got a script in production that we are all very excited about, and [I’m] looking forward to it."

As far as updates go, it ain't much. But he did have a quick, Indy-worthy response when asked about (now-dated) rumors that "Guardians of the Galaxy" star Chris Pratt would be the next Indiana Jones.

Ford scoffed and as he walked, saying, "I think it’s him or me." We'll take the original Indy, thanks.

It's been 10 years(!) since the last Indy film, 2008's panned "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

Right now, the untitled "Indiana Jones 5" is set for a July 9, 2021 release date -- 40 years after "Raiders of the Lost Ark" first debuted.

And, as previously reported, George Lucas will not be involved in the fifth film in the franchise.
