Indeed, thank you. Did Disney really sign for two more movies at Pinewood Studios?

MarketSaw’s source – who also indicated that Benedict Cumberbatch and Gary Oldman have signed for Star Wars 7 – had this to say about Ford and his future with the Indiana Jones franchise:

Checks out, how? LOL.

SW VII and SW VIII saw neither of these.

Thanks Face Palm, but the article was actually more recent than 2014 and specified ( almost in passing) that in addition to multiple Star Wars movies being contracted with Pinewood Studios that Lucasfilm/Disney contracted two Indiana Jones movies. I'm trying to find the article again. I'll update as soon as I get it.

Looks like things seem to be moving ahead, which a good sign. I still wish they'd release the film next year like originally intended, but at least something it finally happening.

Spielberg says at the start of this radio interview Indy 5 will be set in the 1960s!

Also story & screenplay both still not finished & being worked on.

Would Indy meet the Beatles is asked & it sounds as though probably not.....

I think it comes as no surprise, the timeframe of the story.

It's a bit surprising. I thought it would be set in the 70s, considering Harrison's age. He'll be 77, won't he? So if he's playing his own age, the movie should be set in 1977. Taking it back to the 60s means he's playing Indy about a decade younger than his real age. Either it's because they think a 77 year old Indy is too old, or it's because there's something about the story that specifically relates to what was happening in the real world in the 1960s.

Harrison Ford has always been older than Indy. Pretty sure he's supposed to be mid-30s in Raiders, when Ford was in fact pushing 40. Temple was made three years later yet took place earlier than Raiders, stretching the gap further. Last Crusade is even more egregious - it's meant to be a mere two years after Raiders and was filmed eight years after. Ford is ten years older than his character in that movie.

Indy is meant to be 58 in Crystal Skull, when in fact Ford was 65. I actually think they pulled that illusion off better than Ford still being in his thirties in Last Crusade. If they ask us to believe Indy is in his late 60s in Indy 5, that's well in line.

I just hope Indy 6 takes place in 1981. The entire movie could be Indy watching Raiders Of The Lost Ark and making comments about it.

But with Ford starring, it was inevitable.
At this stage the odds for a new low in the series, worse even than KOTCS, are getting shorter and shorter.

Happy to be proven wrong of course, but the confirmed 60s setting is further proof that there's no escaping the constraints imposed on the story by Ford's age - not that one was needed.

My only hope is that they take the opportunity to introduce a new actor in flashbacks for a decent portion of the movie.

It's either that, or a new sidekick for a good chunk of the action scenes.
And this now being under Disney's helm, there is a fair chance it'll be a Rey-like girl, as you already pointed out Stoo.

I never thought I'd say this, but ARE WE GOING TO MISS MUTT?

There are ways of doing the 1960s without making "DA 60s" be the star of the show, you know. Not every film set during a certain period has to be the Forest Gump of that particular era. Whether the film is set in 1961 or 1968, Indy is not going to be hobnobbing with JFK or Elvis. He's not going to be at Altamont. You might see one or two characters in the background with long hair, but so what? You're not going to see Indy dropping acid. Why is the timeframe 1960-1969 such a big deal for you? It is the last period where the world was a small place. Prior to July 20th 1969, anyway.

You can handle a decade well without making it be the star of the decade. Also, Spielberg has never shown the great love for the 1960s that he and Spielberg showed for the 50. It can't simply be that the 50s-ness KOTCS was a one off?

I think it's a legitimate concern that Harrison Ford's age has forced Spielberg to push the character firmly out of the golden age of pulp...y'know, the entire universe the character operates in. The question of what kind of adventure Indy could go on in a world where lost civilizations no longer have room to hide is a fair one.

That said, I think it can be done, and I think the secret is to choose environments that have a timeless quality. Ancient ruins, mountain temples, etc. will always feel Indiana Jones appropriate regardless of the decade.

The noir angle will still work, if we can find Indie at the bottom of a bottle, running away from the 60s, and make it a sort of foil to his previous Glory Days. I would almost be somewhat excited, if the 60s were actually Indiana Jones villain. Time is about the only thing he can fight at this point. And that's a character study I'd be interested in.
