Indiana Jones will comeback to the silver screen once more on June 30th, 2023, a full fifteen years after his previous big-screen adventure, with his newest (and likely final) sequel, and we’re one step closer to seeing him again. Indiana Jones 5 director James Mangold has revealed that post-production has begun, bringing the film one step closer to the final as the editing process begins.
Mangold has officially begun editing Indiana Jones 5, as he disclosed on Twitter. However, the director did mention that he had previously begun cutting the film throughout its arduous production. He also stated that fans interested in learning more about the film’s development process might expect to see stills, first looks, teasers, and much more in the near future. However, given that the anticipated blockbuster is still in the very early stages of development, none of these should be expected until much later. For the time being, Mangold encourages fans to be patient while he works on the sequel.
Indiana Jones 5 will star Harrison Ford once again as the eponymous globe-trotting archaeologist, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, Antonio Banderas, Toby Jones, and Thomas Kretschmann rounding out a star-studded cast. It also has a screenplay written by Mangold and Jez and John-Henry Butterworth, and Steven Spielberg will return as an executive producer, despite the fact that he will not be directing the film.
Little more is known — or, at the very least, verified — about the picture at this time. However, Mangold’s tweet makes one question if the next Indiana Jones sequel will be titled Indy, defying previous naming conventions and serving as a conclusive end chapter for the long-riding adventurer. Certainly, this appears to be Ford’s final outing as possibly his most renowned film role (give or take a certain guy in a galaxy far, far away). Many people anticipated that the previous two sequels would be the character’s final outings; therefore, calling the film Indy gives the impression that this is the final chapter.
In terms of the editing process, it’s uncertain whether Michael Kahn, Spielberg’s longtime partner who edited all four previous Indiana Jones films, would return to cut this current sequel. Mangold hasn’t modified any of his previous films, and the production hasn’t announced who is behind the cut for the forthcoming Indiana Jones feature. Kahn’s quick-cutting should hopefully return to the foyer.
On June 30, 2023, Indiana Jones 5 will be released in theatres. See below for Mangold’s tweet:
Although I’ve been cutting while shooting, I officially start editing INDY today! To all those asking about trailers and teasers, still drops and first looks and other peeks or sneaks, this is the right place to look for info, but just a bit too soon. Be well and be patient!
