Basic plot details are being worked on at this time. The film won't see completion until 2012.
Last month, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that a new Indiana Jones movie will be happening at Disney, although she wouldn't give a specific timeline as to when a sequel may actually go into production, or arrive in theaters. Disney acquired the rights to the franchise from Paramount Pictures back in December 2013, but we haven't heard anything definitive about Indiana Jones 5 since then. Today we have an unconfirmed report from AICN that claims Disney and Lucasfilm are penciling in a fourth-quarter 2018 release date for Indiana Jones 5.
However, Frank Marshall revealed in a separate interview that there have been "no discussions to date" regarding the sequel's release date, or the rumors that Chris Pratt was taking over the franchise. There had been speculation about the actor replacing Harrison Ford forseveral months, now, but he denied rumors that he was being considered for the iconic role, since he has already committed to making several more sequels for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. When the rumors about Chris Pratt were swirling, it wasn't known if he was being eyed to play the new Indy, or just a new character alongside Harrison Ford, but Steven Spielberg himself even endorsed the idea of a Chris Pratt-lead reboot, which he said he would direct if the script was good enough.Read More
Just six years ago, Chris Pratt was best known as the bumbling Andy on NBC's Parks and Recreation, but now he's a bona fide box office star, after headlining blockbusters The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy. While he has a number of projects he's currently preparing for, most notably MGM's The Magnificent Seven remake that starts shooting this summer, Chris Pratt has also been rumored for a number of high-profile projects, such as Indiana Jones 5 and Ghostbusters. While promoting his new action-adventure Jurassic World, the actor revealed that there is no truth to either rumor.
Aside from The Magnificent Seven and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Chris Pratt is also attached to star in Cowboy Ninja Viking, The Real McCoy and Passengers. Should the actor sign on for Indiana Jones 5 and Ghostbusters? Chime in with your thoughts below.Read More
Disney and Paramount brokered a financial deal for future films way back in 2012, when we first heard that Indiana Jones 5 could possibly be moving forward. Though, this is the first time Kathleen Kennedy has officially announced that a new movie is for sure happening. The LucasFilm president goes onto confirm that Disney got the rights for all LucasFilm properties, for better or worse, including Willow and Radioland Murders. Does that mean remakes or reboots, or possibly even sequels to those movies are in the works? We have no idea.
It has long been the belief that LucasFilm and Disney are working hard to launch a new Star Wars franchise with a sequel trilogy and Anthology spinoffs before even thinking about moving forward on Indiana Jones. The first priority is to get the right script with a stand-out story that will please old and new fans alike.Read More

The Guardians of the Galaxy star is rumored to be Disney's top choice to replace original star Harrison Ford. Which sounds like a heavy burden to take on. But Chris Pratt doesn't see it that way. He is in no way 'overwhelmed' by the aspect of carrying on the iconic character for a new generation.

http://movieweb.com/indiana-jones-5-cast-chris-pratt-disney/Near the tail end of last month, it was reported that Disney was looking to cast Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt in the new Indiana Jones. While he would be replacing original star Harrison Ford, it looks like another key element will be kept in place. It is being reported this evening that Steven Spielberg wants to direct the reboot of the franchise.
Steven Spielberg is actually championing Chris Pratt for the lead. Deadline claims that if the script is good enough, and it's a story that Steven Spielberg wants to tell, he will come back for this fifth installment. The director has helmed all four previous entries in the Indiana Jones franchise, starting with Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, and continuing with Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom in 1984, Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade in 1989 and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008.Read More
http://movieweb.com/indiana-jones-5-cast-chris-pratt-disney/Late last month, it was rumored that Disney is actively seeking Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt to take over the role of Indiana Jones from Harrison Ford in a big screen reboot. While doing a press appearance for his Hasty Pudding Man of the Year award, the actor finally commented on the idea of taking over such an iconic role.
Chris Pratt won't yet admit to knowing anything about starring in an all-new Indiana Jones adventure. But according to ComicBook.com, he did say it would be an 'awesome opportunity'. The actor was roasted this past Friday night, after receiving his Hasty Pudding award at Harvard University. The roast included many references to Chris Pratt's past films, and one presenter even announced that he was going to give Pratt an 'Infinity Stone'. It turned out to be a bra decorated with dinosaurs in honor of his upcoming appearance in Jurassic World.Read More
