Indiana Jones 5 will be directed by James Mangold and hits theaters on July 29, 2022. The movie has been in development for several years, and was originally set to be directed by Steven Spielberg once more. However, he stepped down, with Mangold taking over in May 2020.

Fleabag writer/star Waller-Bridge was announced as the female lead earlier this month, while Ford will reprise the role as the iconic archaeologist he first played in 1981's Raiders of the Lost Ark. In addition, John Williams will return to score the movie.

Mikkelsen will also be seen two weeks before Indy 5 hits theaters in July 2022 in the third Fantastic Beasts movie. He has taken over the role of the evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald from Johnny Depp, who left the film last year after he lost a libel case against the British newspaper The Sun.
