Director Steven Spielberg has “revealed that he will be shooting the next ‘Indiana Jones’ movie in April 2019 in the United Kingdom,” reports Deadline.com.
Spielberg, currently in London, said, “It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK,” Variety writes, noting that Spielberg added, “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.”
The Variety story also says, “Last April Disney set a July 10, 2020 release date for the currently untitled movie, which will once again star Harrison Ford. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce. No other cast members have been announced. David Koepp, who worked with Spielberg on ‘Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull’ and ‘Jurassic Park,’ was hired in 2016 to write.”
The article also notes that “Spielberg has also been hot on an update of musical classic ‘West Side Story.’ An open casting call for that film was subsequently announced in late February.”
