“Right now I’m working Indiana Jones 5which Harrison Ford—who is quite a bit younger than me—I think has announced will be his last film,” Williams shared. “So I thought: If Harrison can do it, then maybe I can,” he added. with a laugh, “I don’t want to be seen as outright eliminating any activity… I can’t play tennis, but I like to be able to think that maybe one day I will.”
“James Mangold did an incredible job with Indy,” said Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy. ComicBook.com during the Star Wars celebration. “And him and Harrison [Ford] he has an incredible relationship and I think the fans are going to love what he’s created. It’s fantastic.”
“I’m excited to embark on a new adventure, working with a dream team of all-time great filmmakers,” Mangold said in a statement when the film was first announced. “Steven, Harrison, Kathy, Frank and John are all my artistic heroes. When you add Phoebe, a dazzling actress, a brilliant creative voice and the chemistry she will undoubtedly bring to our set, I can’t help but feel lucky as Indiana Jones himself.”
