Steven Spielberg Eyes April 2019 To Begin Shooting Indiana Jones 5

Academy Award-winning Schindler’s List director Steven Spielberg announces that shooting will begin on Indiana Jones 5 in April 2019.

Spielberg candidly revealed the news while speaking at the Empire Awards on Sunday night. He recently wrapped up production on his latest feature, Ready Player One, which is set to come out in a couple weeks. Also of note is his recent work on The Post, which earned critical acclaim as well as several Academy Award nominations.

Set to be the fifth film in the popular adventure series, the planned Indiana Jones movie has no name at this point. It will come a little over 10 years after the previous installment, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, breathed new life into the franchise, although it proved controversial among fans and critics alike.

Superherohype, the source of this story, quotes Spielberg as saying the following about the project before confirming the April 2019 shooting date:

“It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK. The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers — everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here,” he said.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
