EXCLUSIVE: Following the confirmation at the Disney Investors Presentation in December that the next film was a go, Lucasfilm and director James Mangold look to have their sights set on Harrison Ford’s first new co-star in the next installment of the Indiana Jones franchise. Sources tell Deadline that Fleabag Emmy winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge is set to co-star opposite Ford in the fifth installment, with Ford returning as everyone’s favorite fedora-wearing, whip-slinging archaeologist.

Mangold is taking over directing reins from Steven Spielberg, who still is serving as a producer and is very much involved in various elements of the film. Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel will join Spielberg as producers. John Williams, who has worked on every score in the 40-year-old franchise including its iconic theme, also will return as composer.

The hope is to start production this summer, with Mangold meeting with other talent for other roles in preparation for production. Plot details are still vague on what new adventure awaits Jones, as are details behind who Waller-Bridge will play. The film is set to bow on July 29, 2022.

What was the last recent all female cast movie that was actually good?

Annihilation is all i can think of
I wouldn't even count that. The story made zero bloody sense, the characters shallow as a puddle and the all women team contrived as hell.

I quite enjoyed Hustle, the gender swapped remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, with Ann Hathaway and Rebel Wilson (which they wanted to call Dirty Rotten Skanks, but the studio wouldn't go with it for fear of pissing off twitter), but that also failed spectacularly, so that may just be my subjective taste in comedy.

Indiana Jones decomposing on-screen whilst the church of woke inserts a Mary Sue to take over his role is peak modern Hollywood.

I feel like I should avoid this.

It might be worth it to see them try and pass a 78 year old man off as an action hero. Robert De Niro had a few scenes in The Irishman where they fucked up on the CGI or the perspective in a shot and you could see him shuffling around looking like a chimp. :p

Why the fuck do they take so long with this shit nowadays?

Raiders '81

They did the 3 classic originals within a decade, all practical effects. Took them almost 20 years to do another one, then another 14 to follow that up lol?

They missed their chance with making Shia the new gen Indie so now they are trying another restart. Seeing Kathleen Kennedy involved in this tells me all I need to know.
The actress looks like a moon(wo)man wtf...
Bet you a million dollars that Indy will die like a bitch (just like in Star Wars).

He won't die but this will be them putting that character to bed finally and probably having a few laughs at his expense while the whipsmart broad shines in his old shoes. Cindy Anna Jones will be the next Star Wars franchise.
 

Me and you could RULE this city, Spider-Man!

That’s not fair I bet she has a great personality.

Kathleen Kennedy huh oh boy.

“What’s your name?”

“Cindy-Anna” she says, burying Indy’s whip.

“Cindy-Anna who?”

She looks into the distance and sees the ghost of Harrison Ford cashing a paycheck and never looking back
 
it might be aight, mangold directed logan

Oh, I do like Mangold, Logan and the Wolverine were great (if you disagree on The Wolverine just try the unrated cut) and 3:10 to Yuma was, too. Guy is good at making an action scene feel intense without doing shaky cam shenanigans.

Mangold refuses to film in GA because of our new Jim Pterodactyl laws.
The fact that they're comparing that shit to Jim Crowe is ludicrous.

Anyways I had a radio host personality actually argue with me that Disney is not political and stays out of politics.

Yes, the same Disney that refused to film in Georgia due to their decision on abortion.

Let me guess - Jones must apologise for his colonialising ways by returning some artifact he stole back in his youth (echoes of Logan) and in a heroic sacrifice passes the torch to this angry SJW woman, who is seen wearing his iconic hat at the end.

"It belongs in a museum" is going to be "let's give it back...."

"How can we dance when our Earth is turning, how can we sleep when our beds are burning...."

Brilliant. We can have a scene at the beginning that echos Raiders’ opener. You can have Indy storming the same temple, dodging the various booby traps, and swapping out the bag of sand for the artifact. He can then retrieve Alfred Molina’s remains and return them to the family so they can achieve some closure. He’ll then trade in his whip (with horrific slave-era connotations) for an Antifa combat-skateboard.
 

Ray Charles loved Georgia enough that he sang an entire song about the state. While a more nuanced view of the deep south state is in order, it has been much maligned as of late in the more progressive circles due to its recent legislation for voting procedures and protocols. As a result of the legislation, director of Indiana Jones 5, James Manggold, has determined he will boycott the Peach State for an unspecified length of time. We can now confirm that no part of Indy’s latest adventures will be filmed in the tax-haven that is Georgia.
