Legendary Hollywood icon Steven Spielberg appears to be pretty confident that Harrison Ford will be hanging up his Indiana Jones fedora and whip after his time starring in the fifth Indy film. Father Time eventually catches up with us all, even Ford, and Spielberg can envision a possible future where the Indy franchise switches gender leads with a female starring as the main character in later installments.

The long-term future of the Indy franchise remains a topic to be covered at a later time as the focus is currently on the production of the untitled Indiana Jones 5, with filming on the Ford-led title scheduled to begin in the UK next April.
