Actor Harrison Ford says he believes it’s “perfectly appropriate” for him to don the famous fedora of Indiana Jones for a fifth time.
Talking to the Daily Telegraph, Ford says, “We’ve seen the character develop and grow over a period of time, and it’s perfectly appropriate and OK for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn’t necessarily have to kick as much ass.”
“To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do,” Ford adds.
Ford is currently 71 and while we’ve heard rumors of a fifth Indy installment, we don’t yet have a script from George Lucas or a commitment from director Steven Spielberg to direct. Ford may not be able to do the physical stunts of the original trilogy of films, but those duties could be given to co-star Shia LeBeouf as Indy’s son if a fifth installment comes our way.
So, do you think we need more Indy? Or should they stop now?
