Last week, Disney announced Phoebe Waller-Bridge will co-star opposite Harrison Ford in the next Indiana Jones film and today Deadline is reporting that Mads Mikkelsen has now signed on to the project. It is unknown at this time what role the actor will play in the film.
Mikkelsen’s acting credits include Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Doctor Strange and Hannibal.
Disney also recently announced that 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.
