Kathleen Kennedy confirms new Indiana Jones movie

The rumours about a fifth Indiana Jones movie have been in the air for a good few years now, but in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Lucasfilm president and super producer Kathleen Kennedy has officially confirmed that yes, Indy will be back, although in what form and when remains to be seen.

"[An Indiana Jones film] will one day be made inside this company," said Kennedy. "When it will happen, I'm not quite sure. We haven't started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it."

There was some very loud chatter recently surrounding Chris Pratt picking up the whip and Fedora, but that remains unconfirmed, and with his roles in on-going franchises The Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) and this years Jurassic World being so similar to everyone's favourite fortune hunter, this might put pay to that idea – or perhaps make it an easier decision for Lucasfilm to make, should Pratt want the gig.

There is also been some talk about Steven Spielberg returning to direct, and some thoughts from Chris Pratt himself about the idea, but with Indiana Jones 5 also announced back in 2009, it's important to not get too excited about Indy making coming back. If that's even possible.

With everything still clearly up in the air, Indiana Jones 5 has no official release date pencilled in. As always, watch this space.
