Indiana Jones 5 ‘will start filming next week in London’

The long-awaited fifth installment of Indiana Jones will be underway soon after delays due to COVID-19.

On Wednesday Deadline claimed filming would begin at Pinewood Studios in England next week. The site said they received the information from sources ‘close to the production.’

A UK site has also shared that IJ5 will also shoot at Bamburgh castle, situated on the northeast coast of England by the village of Bamburgh in Northumberland. 

Ford has already been seen near Pinewood Studios – a British film and television studio located in the village of Iver Heath in Buckinghamshire – as he prepares to reprise his role as the iconic relics hunter.  

James Mangold is directing the movie in place of Steven Spielberg, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Thomas Kretschmann are also on board to star.

Legendary composer John Williams is also set to return, continuing a musical legacy that began 40 years ago with Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Meanwhile, Harrison previously said he wouldn’t make another Indiana Jones movie unless he was sure the production team could ‘kill it.’

Citing the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he said: ‘I don’t really want to give them what they wanna see, I want to give them something they didn’t anticipate seeing.

‘We’re not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we’re in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best.’

Last month Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renee Wilson joined the cast of Indiana Jones 5.

Indiana Jones 5 was first announced in 2016 and originally scheduled to be released in July 2019. 

It was then pushed back a year, before being delayed for another 12 months until July 2021 after Jonathan Kasdan – whose father Lawrence Kasdan wrote 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark – was brought on board to work on the script after original screenwriter David Koepp departed the project.

The most recent film in the series was 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which earned over $790.6 million at the global box office.

The current release date for Indiana Jones 5 is July 29, 2022.
