Everyone relax, Steven Spielberg promises not to kill Indiana Jones in fifth movie

June 16th, 2016 by Andrew Comments


Steven Spielberg has promised fans that he will not kill off beloved adventure character Indiana Jones in the upcoming fifth movie, currently aiming for a July 2019 release.

The director has previously confirmed that he was not looking to re-cast an actor to take over from Harrison Ford, leaving fans to wonder if that would mean the fifth adventure would be the whip cracking archeologist’s last, especially (WARNING: spoiler alert) given the events of JJ Abrams’ venture into the Star Wars universe in The Force Awakens.

Well, those fears have now been put to rest thanks to a recent interview with Spielberg in the Hollywood Reporter  during which he stated: “I think this one is straight down the pike for the fans.”

When pressed for plot details, he would not answer, but did say that “…the one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison at the end of it.”

So Indiana Jones fans can relax a little, knowing that we are only a few short years away from another movie. Now all we need to do is make sure there’s no Shia and no crystal skulls making any appearances.
