Harrison Ford, 64, said at the inaugural Rome Film Festival on Friday that he still feels fit to continue to play Indiana Jones, reports The Associated Press.
Ford said that he was delighted to team up again with directors Steven Spielberg and George Lucas for Indiana Jones 4. Lucas co-wrote and executive produced the earlier films, which Spielberg directed.
"We did three films that stay within the same block of time. We need to move on for artistic reasons and obvious physical reasons," Ford said. "I feel fit to continue and bring the same physical action."
Lucas has said he and Spielberg, who would direct, are working on a script, though no details have been disclosed.
In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Jones' father was played by Sean Connery, who Ford said might also appear in the planned fourth feature.
"He's part of the emotional fabric of these films. I think there may be an opportunity, I believe that Sean is still willing and I'd be delighted if he joined us," said Ford.
Connery, who attended the Rome event last week, has said that no offer had been made.
