The Indiana Jones series is experiencing a reversal of types for the very first time. It was recently discovered that Steven Spielberg will be stepping aside as manager and instead James Mangold will be spearheading the job. Producer Frank Marshall, that had been part of all four Indy movies, has confirmed the same, adding that Spielberg will be staying on as co-producer. Harrison Ford will reprise his legendary role in the adventure movie which is slated to release in 2022.
In an interaction with Collider, Marshall demonstrated that writing has just begun and expressed his optimism over Mangold taking over the reins as the Ford vs Ferrari filmmaker is known to be enthused about the franchise. “He is a great filmmaker. I believe he has a relationship with Harrison. It was all the right pieces coming together, at the right time.”
Marshall also included a comment on how shooting will look like when the Covid-19 scenario has improved. “The number one thing, of course, is the safety of everyone – that the cast, the crew, and all of us,” he explained. “So, we’re taking a look at the guidelines which are coming slowly, in the health experts as well as the studios and the different parts of the organization, and we are only trying to incorporate everything, so we can proceed and be safe.

It’s going to slow things down, so we’re attempting to correct it. You won’t find a lot of big crowd scenes, as an instance, for a little while. There won’t be any more craft assistance, so perhaps that will be good for individuals, in maintaining more healthy. It’s a moving target at the moment. There are a whole lot of people working on the options, to have the ability to operate and be secure.”
