Disney is looking for a little “fortune and glory” by potentially expanding its beloved Indiana Jones universe.
The talented trio of Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg, and George Lucas are already working on the fifth installment of Indiana Jones, but according to Disney CEO Bob Iger, movie number five may not be the last crusade for the popular franchise.
During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Iger was asked if there could potentially be an “Indiana Jones universe” similar to the spate of Star Wars films scheduled to be released over the next couple of years.
“I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of Star Wars, but I see making more,” Iger told The Hollywood Reporter. “It won’t be just a one-off.”
While Iger revealed there may be more adventures with the intrepid archaeologist, he’s not sure if those escapades would be with Ford, who turns 74 in July, or with a younger character.
“Well, we’ll bring [Harrison Ford] back, then we have to figure out what comes next,” Iger continued. “We [got] Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in the film. But then what’s the direction? I’ve had discussions about what the direction is, [but] I don’t want to get into it.”
The fifth installment of Indiana Jones is scheduled for a 2019 release.
