According to The Daily Record, parts of the highly anticipated Indiana Jones 5 film are to be shot in the Scottish Highlands later this year.
This means Harrison Ford could make an appearance in Scotland, but so far hasn’t been confirmed. According to the outlet, a source said: “It’s unclear if it will just
be production staff but we think he will.”
At the very least, “moviemakers plan to capture scenes of the hills and mountainous terrain for the upcoming Disney film. Pre-production shots are to begin in November, with a star-studded cast then expected to descend on the north of Scotland.”
Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal), and Thomas Kretschmann (Avengers: Age of Ultron) will co-star opposite Harrison Ford in the film.
John Williams, who has worked on every score in the Indiana Jones franchise, will also return as composer.
James Mangold will take over for Steven Spielberg to direct the film, however, Spielberg will still serve as a producer and is very much involved in the project. Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel will join Spielberg as producers.
This will be the first Indiana Jones movie created since Disney purchased Lucasfilm. The four previous Indiana Jones movies, Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981), Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom (1984), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull (2008), were distributed by Paramount.
Indiana Jones 5 is set to release on July 29, 2022.
