Indiana Jones 5 Set To Start Filming In The UK Next Week

Good news for fans of the Indiana Jones franchise, because the fifth instalment in the adventure series is set to kick off filming next week.

According to reports from Deadline, it's going to commence filming in the UK next week at Pinewood Studios.

Rumours have been rife for ages about the next Indy film, but it seems sources close to the production have confirmed the Lucasfilm movie - now underneath the Disney umbrella - is close to kick-off.

Harrison Ford, 78, has even been spotted near to the studios earlier this week. He wasn't wearing the famous hat, though.

Alongside Ford in the cast for the fifth film is Danish star Mads Mikkelsen, Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Kretschmann, and Shaunette Renee Wilson.

The film is set to be directed by James Mangold, who also took the reins for Logan, but - don't worry - Steven Spielberg will still be a massive part of the production.

He's just going to be acting as a producer, as well as being across a number of parts of the film.

Obviously, John Williams will bring the music, having worked on the franchise since the very beginning.

Come to think of it, where would the Indiana Jones films be without Williams' iconic score?

We know very little about the plot for the forthcoming film, as the company has been keeping their cards very close to their chest.

There have been rumours of a 'space race' sort of theme for the film, as well as rumours of a shoot taking place on England's North East coast up at Bamburgh Castle, but they're just that - rumours.

Ford last donned the hat way back in 2008 for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which certainly served to divide opinions at the time.

In fact, some fans of the franchise would rather it had never happened.

However, this time they'll be back to right some wrongs, and maybe drag some of the doubters around.

Of course, the real reason they're coming back isn't to settle the scores and erase the history of the old film, it's because there's likely a whole heap of cash involved.

Whilst the previous film received a panning from some critics and hardcore fans for some - let's say - outlandish themes, it ended up taking almost $800 million (£560 million) at the global box office, so was a commercial success.

Either way, it'll be interesting to see what Indiana and company have for us this time out.
