This Summer, a legend will face his destiny. Harrison Ford returns in #IndianaJones and the Dial of Destiny in theaters June 30.
It’s the years and the mileage in the upcoming fifth movie in the series, The Dial of Destiny.
The legend that is Harrison Ford, who is currently 80 years old, is probably certainly the only 80-year-old to have ever starred in a nonstop action movie from a major Hollywood studio.
Ford/advanced Indy’s age presented challenges and opportunities for the film’s director James Mangold (Ford v Ferrari), who has known Ford for a long time and previously collaborated with him on The Call of the Wild. In the eagerly anticipated fifth installment of the saga, which will be released on June 30, Indiana teams up with his goddaughter (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) on a new quest.
“We can’t hide from where we are in our lives — none of us can — and neither can Indiana Jones,” says Mangold (in a spoiler-free interview conducted for last week’s Hollywood Reporter cover story on Ford, where a few of the below comments previously appeared). “I wanted to follow Harrison’s own lead and simply deal with it straight on. It’s not just a movie about a hero in his twilight years who is called back into action. It’s more than just that his bones might ache, it’s that his soul might ache, or that some of his optimism or sense fitting into the world might have evaporated. The mistake you can make in movies — and we’ve all seen movies like this — is where someone is of a ripe age, but the entire movie is continuing this charade along with them that they’re not that old.”
