Harrison Ford Remains Optimistic About Making ‘Indiana Jones 5’

Harrison Ford reveals he's interested in coming back for Indiana Jones 5 We haven't heard anything about Indiana Jones 5 in a year and a half, when George Lucas revealed that he was stumped on creating the story.

While it isn't clear if this sequel will ever see the light of day, franchise star Harrison Ford revealed that he is still interested in coming back as Indy, even at 71 years of age.

"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass. To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do."

It's worth noting that, after George Lucas sold his LucasFilm empire to Disney for $4 billion, he has retired from making big-budget movies. It isn't known if the Disney-controlled LucasFilm has plans on bringing back Indiana Jones for one more adventure or not. What also isn't clear is just how old Harrison Ford will be when, and if, he actually returns. The actor could be donning the infamous hat and bullwhip anywhere between 75 and 85 years of age.

Do you want to see an Indiana Jones that old? Or should he retire?

Indiana Jones 5 is in development .
