Hollywood director Steven Spielberg has confirmed that Indiana Jones 5 will be the last time Harrison Ford will essay the iconic character. Steve Spielberg, whose Ready Player One is presently playing in theatres, is also open to a female-led Indiana Jones film. He stated that the film would be called Indiana Joan then.

“We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that,” the filmmaker said. The director of many blockbusters like Jurassic Park, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial and Jaws went on to confirm that Harrison Ford would play the archaeologist and adventurer for the last time in Indiana Jones 5. “This will be Harrison Ford’s last Indiana Jones movie. I am pretty sure, but it will certainly continue after that.”

Indiana Jones was voted as the best movie character of all time last year, beating Batman and Harrison Ford’s own Star Wars character Han Solo. Hollywood was rocked with sexual harassment and misconduct scandals last year, beginning with scores of women accusing movie producer Harvey Weinstein of rape and sexual assault. Several other bigwigs like Kevin Spacey and Dustin Hoffman were accused by many men and women subsequently.

These scandals and the backlash gave birth to movements like MeToo and Time’s Up. Spielberg who has long been in support of the movements said, “I have been very lucky to be influenced by women, several of whom I have just loved madly — my mom and my wife,” the director, who has been a strong advocate for the Time’s Up campaign for gender equality, said.
