Ford assures fans that his last outing as Indiana Jones will be worth the wait. But, as quickly as he disposed of the swordsman in Cairo, Ford is ensuring fans that his last outing as Indy will be worth the wait.
Speaking with Total Film, Harrison Ford said that
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny
will be a fitting sendoff for the character…at least as he portrays him. “I’ve had the privilege of delivering amazing films developed by Steven and George for 40 years, and to end this adventure not with a whimper but a bang has been my greatest goal.” Ford added, [Spielberg] “This is the final movie in the series, this is the last film I’ll be playing the character.” I anticipate that it will be the last time that he appears in a film.”[Lucas] So, no, Harrison Ford will have nothing to do with the Indiana Jones TV series, “if it does come to fruition.”Now 80, plenty of age-related jokes have been made at the expense of Harrison Ford still playing Indiana Jones. Ford said that it is a mistake to portray someone as young in a movie, but then the movie pretends that they are not. Ford said that the fact that he was the only* actor who played Jones was the secret to the character’s longevity. He said, “It is the same actor playing him…This not your fifth Bond.” This is the first and original Indiana Jones. (*Jones, of course, has been played by many actors, but not in the way Ford speaks about River Phoenix in Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade or other people in
The Young Indiana Jones. The fans of the Indiana-Jones series will be able to smirk when they see Harrison Ford portraying the character at an age much younger, thanks to the de-aging technology. The sequence takes up the first 25 minutes of Dial of Destiny
