The 'Ford v Ferrari' filmmaker is reportedly in early talks to helm the fifth installment about the famed archaeologist and adventurer which is expected to be Harrison Ford's last.
"Ford v Ferrari" filmmaker James Mangold is in early talks to direct the fifth "Indiana Jones V" movie.
Steven Spielberg has opted not to oversee his fifth "Indiana Jones" movie and Deadline sources claim Mangold is the favourite to step into his shoes.
If he signs on, "Walk the Line" and "Logan" director will take over the project, in which Harrison Ford will star.
This is expected to be his last outing as archaeologist and adventurer Jones - a role he first played in the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in 1981.
The new film is expected to hit theatres in July 2021.
