Ford is putting the fedora back on, and suiting up as Indiana Jones for a fifth
film in the franchise with director Steven Spielberg.
The announcement was made on Tuesday morning.
"Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019," Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios, said in a statement. "It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven."
