Phoebe Waller-Bridge Joins Cast of Upcoming Indiana Jones Film
Where are all my Fleabag fans? You’re about to love the latest Indiana Jones casting news that we’re about to share with you! Disney has officially announced that Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge will be starring alongside Harrison Ford!
Ford is returning to the role of the legendary archeologist Indy for the fifth installment in the beloved Indiana Jones franchise.
This is not Waller-Bridge’s first foray into blockbuster Lucasfilm franchises!
Waller-Bridge played Lando’s feisty, feminist droid companion L3-37 in the standalone Star Wars film quickly rising the ranks to become one of our favorite Star Wars robots EVER!
In addition, Disney also shared the news that legendary composer John Williams will once again return to score the next Indiana Jones film.
This is MAJOR as Williams scored Raiders of the Lost Ark 40 years ago with a soundtrack that become just as beloved and familiar as the films themselves.
I’m thrilled to be starting a new adventure, collaborating with a dream team of all-time great filmmakers,” said James Mangold, the film’s director. “Steven [Spielberg], Harrison, Kathy [Kennedy], Frank [Marshall], and John are all artistic heroes of mine. When you add Phoebe, a dazzling actor, brilliant creative voice and the chemistry she will undoubtedly bring to our set, I can’t help but feel as lucky as Indiana Jones himself.”
As of going to print, Disney is keeping the plot of the next Indiana Jones film a closely guarded secret. However, we have heard a rumor that the film will at least be partially set in 1960’s New York and that Indy may be on a quest to find the Fountain of Youth!
The film is expected to swing into theaters on July 29, 2022. . Kathleen Kennedy, Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel are serving as the movie’s producers.
