Indiana Jones 5 may be the last film to feature a soundtrack by John Williams. The legendary artist shared the possibility in a phone interview with the Associated Press yesterday, telling the news agency that he has considered making the fifth installment of Lucasfilm’s premier adventure franchise the final bullet point on his extensive and acclaimed film resume, one that is already populated with timeless themes for franchises that include Jaws, Star Wars, and Jurassic Park. Williams’ thoughts about a potential retirement were prompted by Harrison Ford, who has reportedly announced that Indiana Jones 5 will be his final film. Williams is 90 years old, while Ford will be celebrating his 80th birthday next month on July 13. Indiana Jones 5 is scheduled for release on June 30, 2023.

“At the moment I’m working on Indiana Jones 5, which Harrison Ford — who’s quite a bit younger than I am — I think has announced will be his last film,” Williams said. “So, I thought: If Harrison can do it, then perhaps I can, also.”

Ford, for the record, hasn’t said that publicly. And Williams, who turned 90 in February, isn’t absolutely certain he’s ready to, either.

“I don’t want to be seen as categorically eliminating any activity,” Williams says with a chuckle, speaking by phone from his home in Los Angeles. “I can’t play tennis, but I like to be able to believe that maybe one day I will.”

Right now, though, there are other ways Williams wants to be spending his time. A “Star Wars” film demands six months of work, which he notes, “at this point in life is a long commitment to me.” Instead, Williams is devoting himself to composing concert music, including a piano concerto he’s writing for Emanuel Ax.

  1. What a depressing thing to read first thing in the morning.
    I think the fact they are making a fifth Indiana Jones movie after the ****show which was the fourth (and the fact that Harrison Ford is way too **** old to play the roll and was already too old for the fourth) is the depressing part.

    I'm sure there is a way of making this movie so that there is a good movie in there and that it makes sense (did they not kind of set op Labeouf to take over in movie 4?), but there is also a big chance that that is not what they are going to do.
  3. 2 bucks says they ************* and Indy's successor will be a girl and they spin it off into a new series.

    ok I typed that before I saw the IMDB listing for it, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge is in it. So seems likely to me.

    Shia's name is not listed anywhere on the IMDB page for it. I think he pissed off too many people with his bullsh!t

    Wow, casting a woman in a movie makes it woke retard? Interesting take, as that makes, like, all movies woke since they basically all have women in them.

    Regardless of who they cast in what way, I imagine there is too much potential money in the franchise to not try to spin it off into a series.

    Well I mean replacing a primary male role with a female. Woman in movies is fine, leading women in movies is fine. But when they gender flip for no reason except it's trendy (think Ghostbusters) that bugs me. I will edit my post so as not to offend any others :)

    IMO it’s all about how they do it as opposed to the end result. If I walk out of the movie saying “****, that was so awesome the way they passed the torch from Indy to Laura Croft”, then why would I complain? You likely make a good point with ghostbusters - that is one I never even bothered to watch because they didn’t sell it well in the trailers.

    Edit to say even a gender swap on a reboot isn’t instantly a bad thing. The Battlestar Galactica reboot was awesome and Starbuck flipped gender from the original to the reboot.

    If only I had stayed away, as you did.
