Harrison Ford didn’t think “Indiana Jones 5” was necessary, and he’s not alone | Rare Techy
By the time Indiana Jones 5 finally hits theaters next June, Harrison Ford is just a few weeks away from his 81st birthday, which is a hell of an age to headline a blockbuster blockbuster.
Of course, the Hollywood icon has kept himself in great shape, but that didn’t stop alarm bells from ringing when an injury sustained during the production sidelined him for much longer than first thought. No matter who you are or what you do, no one can beat Father Time, so we can only hope that the actor’s swan song as the legendary archaeologist proves to be a fitting farewell.
The franchise may be over 40 years old, but Indiana Jones 5 is only the second installment to arrive since 1989, which is mind-blowing when you think about it. Based on how much the internet continues to despise Kingdom of the Crystal Skullit wouldn’t have been a very fitting bow for Ford, but even the man himself admitted that he didn’t see the point of snapping the whip a fifth time at first.
In typically weird fashion, Ford revealed empire that he “did not think it necessary to do another.” That’s totally understandable, and while he went on to say that the script changed his mind, we have a sneaking suspicion that a dump truck full of that sweet, sweet Disney cash undoubtedly helped convince him, too.
The only real question is whether or not Indiana Jones 5 can meet expectations, we won’t get an answer for another seven months.
