Harrison Ford wants a final outing as Indiana Jones

Dr Jones, Dr Jones!


Harrison Ford doesn’t care he’s pushing 74, he wants a bash at a fifth Indiana Jones movie.

The most recent film in the franchise, ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ failed to impress critics, but that hasn’t discouraged the actor, who has played the famous adventurer for all four movies.

Ford said: “I’d love to do another Indiana Jones. A character that has a history and a potential, kind of a rollicking good movie ride for the audience, Steven Spielberg as a director –  what’s not to like?”

However, right now all his efforts are concentrated on his reprisal of Han Solo in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and Harrison revealed there is still much of the rebel left in Solo.

He told Entertainment Weekly: “He was always the cynical member of the original characters. There was a callow youth, a beautiful princess, a wise old warrior, and there was a smart-ass. While we were invited to engage on the questions of some pretty arcane mysteries –  the Force and the mythology that surrounds it – he was the guy who said, ‘What? Huh? Come on.’


“There’s not an abandoning of the character. He does not aspire to the position of Obi ‘Ben’ Kenobi, nor do I aspire to be some New Age Alec Guinness. His development is consistent with the character, and there are emotional elements which have occasioned his growth. There’s a lot of the rogue still left in Solo.”
