This is what I want too

An action scene involving an older guy can still be exciting. It'd just have to be cleverer. Which would be an interesting thing to see. Rather than brute force at his age, Indy's truly "making it up as he goes". Using more of his gun rather than his fist; using whatever he can in essence. A more clever action sequence that is just as operatic as the original trilogy but where brute force reigned in Raiders and TOD, here is a more clever and careful sequence.

Don't count on that, Silvor. It's guaranteed that Disney's hands will be in the mix.

You weren't even alive during the Reagan years. That guy was an old coot (which was well known at the time because of his previous fame) and he was often mocked as a doddering fool...even with the Brylcreem in his hair.

If you want to champion the physical "capabilities of an elderly person", why compare Indiana Jones to U.S. presidents? It's stupid.

Just for the record- and you may already be aware of this- but keep in mind that President Ronald Reagan had Alzheimer's Disease (which he announced to the world in 1994) and he may have even had it as President. If so, it's amazing how well he functioned as president while working against that disability. (Much like President Franklin D. Roosevelt did while serving with polio.)
In any case, I do agree that it may not be the best comparison for Harrison Ford's physicality in his '70s. Hopefully, he can still fake it and do a good job of it as Indiana Jones- in what should probably be his last movie.

Here's Frank Marshall from his Bourne DVD tour. Missing any?
Quote:
November 28, 2016
Frank Marshall: "I have no information. I don't think we're going to start talking about that one for about a year."

November 30, 2016
Frank Marshall: "That's still in the thinking stages."
Q: Karen Allen to return?
Frank Marshall: "I don't know, because that's one I'm not involved in until they come up with the idea and the plan of where they want to go. Then I get involved."

November 30, 2016
Frank Marshall: "David Koepp is writing the script and it’s very secretive."
Q: Indy in space?
Frank Marshall: (Laughs) "I’ll make sure to talk to David about that. My personal feeling on it is that Harrison Ford is always going to be Indiana Jones."

December 7, 2016
Frank Marshall: "Just the early stages. David Koepp is our screenwriter and we're all talking, but there's really nothing down on paper yet. It's a wonderful team like we had on Bourne. It's nice to have your friends that you've known. Look, I've known Harrison and obviously Steven and the whole group for 30 years now. So it's nice to have everybody back together as kind of a reunion. Listen, I watched [Ford] in Star Wars, and I don't think he's going to have any problem!"
Edit: yeah, plenty more.

It's unfortunate that Spielberg never wants to experiment with other types of film and cameras like IMAX to shoot his movies. I think an Indiana Jones film could great with an IMAX camera or an Alexa 65 which is what they shot The Revenant with. Although Spielberg in recent years has caved in with digital editing with an Avid so who knows?

The BFG was shot with an ARRI ALEXA.

I wouldn't object to Indy going digital. Spielberg shot Indy 4 on film and went to a lot of trouble to ensure that it would look like anything but, so why not save some money this time out?

This shouldn't impact Indy. There is a gap in Spielberg's schedule between the production of The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara (filming soon) and Indy 5 in the summer of 2018. If this project really is being fast-tracked as the article states, he could shoot it in the fall of this year and dive into Indy right after. Dude's got a full dance card for sure, but he's had a slate this crowded before.

It was official in March 2016, which is what that press release is dated.

I think what happened is that yesterday one site mistakenly reposted that as if it was news, and a bunch of other sites picked up on it without doing any due diligence. Reporting in the internet age!

It's too early to tell when Spielberg will plan to squeeze The Post into this schedule. We still have no idea how far along in the pre-production phase it is or if they even have a screenwriter hired. But I think this does bode well for Indy 5. Spielberg in my opinion, works best when he's constantly working on movies.

No reason to deride the person's comments as "stupid." No need to be rude.

Reagan *is* a good example. He was an outdoorsman who rode horses and knew his way around firearms. I was alive when Reagan was president, and I remember his opponents saying that age 70 was "too old" to be president. That was actually an issue. (They didn't know he would have Alzheimer's, they just believed that a person at 70, even fit and healthy, was too old for the job. You might have been one of them.)

Another presidential example is, of course, Teddy Roosevelt. An adventurer through and through up until his death.

Harrison will do Indy 6 at age 79 for a 2021 debut of Raiders 40th anniversary.
Mark my words!

Funny how times have changed. Trump is older then Reagan when he was inaugurated. Nobody said anything about his age. Honestly, people age differently than that generation. Hence why having a 77 year old Indiana Jones isn't that big of a deal. Hell, I'm a 26 year old pretty fit dude and I don't have any doubts about Harrison Ford being able to kick my ass.

Without getting too deeply into this, because it's my job to keep the peace here, and I don't want to make work for myself, that's just not true.

At any rate, just because Harrison Ford once played the president as an action hero, doesn't mean that presidents in general are a useful point of comparison.

well Trump eats fast food everyday he cant be healthy or Athletic I do Agree though 70 is the new 60 and so on so fourth. My parents are in there 60's but are nothing like my grandparents when they were in there 60's, my parents seem way younger. LOL at news outlets getting the Indy 5 release announcement just a little late, like a year late hahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
