Indiana Jones will be putting his next adventure on hold for a bit.
Originally slated for release on July 10th, 2020, the fifth Indiana Jones film will now miss its initial release date. Filming was supposed to begin in April of 2019 in the United Kingdom, but Variety has learned that shooting will no longer start next spring and will have to be pushed back by months, if not a year. Members of the crew have already been informed of said delay.
Part of this issue is due to the fact that a finished script has yet to be signed off.
Jonathan Kasdan has been tapped to deliver a new draft, but a deal has yet to close to bring the writer on board. However, it looks as though he will soon join the project. Jurassic Park screenwriter David Koepp took the first pass at the script.
Despite this delay, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford still remain committed to the new film which will follow the globe-trotting archaeologist on another fantastic adventure.
Disney has yet to issue a comment on the film's delay.
