Indiana Jones 5 script

As is often the case on huge Hollywood blockbuster movies, Indiana Jones 5 has gone through multiple writers on its way toward production. Considering the disappointment of 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the quality of this new movie’s script has been a big talking point among film fans – but now one person involved with the movie is talking up the script in a big way.

Mads Mikkelsen, who was announced as part of the movie’s cast a few weeks ago, says in a new interview that the Indiana Jones 5 script “was everything [he] wished it to be” when he read it. Then he put on a conductor’s hat, leapt aboard a locomotive, hung a gigantic sign on it that read “All Aboard the Hype Train,” and sped off into the night. It sounded like he was yelling something about metaphors becoming reality, but it was tough to hear him because he was also maniacally pulling on the horn as the train disappeared into the distance.

indiana jones 5 cast Mads Mikkelsen

Things are clearly heating up with Indiana Jones 5. Just last week we learned that Phoebe Waller-Bridge was joining Harrison Ford in the James Mangold-directed pic. Now the cast has another new addition: Mads Mikkelsen, star of Casino RoyaleHannibal, the recent Another Round, and so much more. There’s no word yet on who Mikkelsen is playing, and I’m sure the immediate conclusion everyone will jump to is that Mikkelsen is the film’s villain, since he tends to specialize in playing morally dubious characters in Hollywood productions.

Is ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Set in 1960s New York?

indiana jones 5 setting

James Mangold is taking over for Steven Spielberg on Indiana Jones 5, and Mangold recently tweeted out something that may indicate when and where the next Indy adventure is set: 1960s New York. Indiana Jones is a globe-trotting series, so it’s highly unlikely the entire film would be set in the Big Apple. But there’s a good chance ’60s NYC plays a part in the next adventure of Indiana Jones.

indiana jones 5 script

It’s hard to imagine an Indiana Jones movie without Steven Spielberg at the helm, but that’s what we’re going to get with Indiana Jones 5, which will be directed and written by Logan‘s James Mangold. The film went through several drafts and screenwriters before initial screenwriter David Koepp finally exited the project alongside Spielberg. And the delays on the film can be attributed to the disagreements Spielberg, Ford, and Disney had over that constantly-changing script.

indiana jones 5 screenplay

Indiana Jones 5 is still years away, and hasn’t even begun production yet – but it’s already gone through several major changes. The biggest change of all: Steven Spielberg, who directed all the other Indiana Jones films, is sitting this one out and handing the reins over to James Mangold. And that change has set off a series of other changes as well.

David Koepp, a writer who has worked with Spielberg several times before, was originally handling the script. Koepp handed his duties off to other writers, but then returned to work on the screenplay some more. But now, according to Koepp himself, he’s no longer involved with the project – and Mangold might be starting completely from scratch.
