Hollywood legend Harrison Ford is set to don the iconic hat and whip of Indiana Jones for the fifth installment of the popular franchise. The untitled film is set for a 2023 release, so for today’s List hai toh hit hai podcast we take a look at things we know about the highly anticipated film.

The Space Race

The details pertaining to the plot of the film have been kept under wraps, but if rumours are true, the story could be set in the 60s at the height of the ‘space race’ and Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. It is more than likely that Indiana’s new adventure might have something to do with the moon landing

New faces

The new film will feature several new additions to the cast and chief among them is British actress and filmmaker Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The Fleabag lead writer and lead star will essay one of the primary characters in the film. Some of the important stars include Boyd Holbrook and Mads Mikkelsen — two acclaimed actors popular for playing some iconic villains. While Mikkelsen will essay the role of the main antagonist in the film, it is unclear whether Holbrook will be a foe or an ally to Indiana Jones. Veteran British actor Toby Jones who has played memorable characters in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Sherlock will also essay an important character in the film

The return of Mutt Williams

The 2008 film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull introduced Indiana’s son Mutt Williams, played by Shia LaBeouf. The character was once rumoured to take over the franchise as its lead, but the film’s negative reception and the backlash surrounding casting meant that those plans were shelved. While there is no indication that LaBeouf will reprise his role for the upcoming instalment, there is speculation that the character will return but played by a different actor.

Steven Spielberg to stay onboard as producer

The first four films of the franchise were helmed by Steven Spielberg with Star Wars creator George Lucas as executive producer. However, the new film will be directed by Walk the Line and Logan director James Mangold. Spielberg will continue to oversee the project as executive producer of the film along with current Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

The Nazi connection

The Nazis have prominently featured in the franchise from the very first film as the main villains. It appears the Nazis or former Nazis will make an appearance in the film in some capacity if reports are to be believed. Then again, it wouldn’t feel like an Indiana Jones film if the swashbuckling hero does not take on a few Nazis.

A time travelling Indiana?

While not much is known about the details surrounding the plot, there is plenty of speculation online that the film could feature more than just a moon landing. Harrison Ford was allegedly seen with dots on his face, something usually done to de-age an actor. This has further fuelled speculation that time travel could feature in the film.
