Steven Spielberg: Filming For ‘Indiana Jones 5’ To Begin In UK April 2019

Award-winning director Steven Spielberg has announced that filming for the currently-untitled fifth theatrical entry in the Indiana Jones franchise will be taking place in the UK in April 2019.

The Harrison Ford-starring Indy 5, which will be receiving the IMAX treatment, is scheduled to arrive in theaters July 20, 2020.

Last night the Rakuten TV Empire Awards played host to numerous special guests — but only one was the Legend of Our Lifetime. Iconic director Steven Spielberg took to the stage at Camden’s Roundhouse to receive a special award from Empire in recognition of his unbeatable back-catalogue of pulse-pounding, heart-warming, eyeball-dazzling blockbusters. If it wasn’t enough that Ready Player One is just around the corner, Spielberg dropped in a tidbit in his acceptance speech about another upcoming film of his that we can’t wait to see: Indiana Jones 5.

On stage, Spielberg confirmed that he will be shooting the next Indy adventure in just over a year’s time right here in the UK. Speaking about his frequent collaborators from the British film industry, Spielberg said: “It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK. The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers — everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here.”
