Why the ‘Indiana Jones’ Sequel Will Miss Its Release Date

Jun 29, 2018  •  Post A Comment

The fifth movie in the “Indiana Jones” series won’t be coming out on its original release date, and will be pushed back by months, if not a year, Variety reports.

The movie was supposed to be released on July 10, 2020, with filming originally scheduled to start in the U.K. in April 2019.

“Part of the issue is that the key members of the creative team have yet to sign off on a finished script,” Variety reports. “Collider reported on Thursday that Jonathan Kasdan, son of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ scribe Lawrence Kasdan, has been enlisted to deliver a new draft. A deal has yet to close to bring the writer on board, but it looks as though he will soon join the project. David Koepp (‘Jurassic Park’) took the first pass at the script.”

The report notes that at one point, the movie was expected to hit theaters in 2019.
