James Mangold is directing the action-packed sequel, which will be produced by Steven Spielberg.
Mads Mikkelsen has found a new franchise to grace with his presence following James Bond (Casino Royale), Star Wars (Rogue One) and Harry Potter (Fantastic Beasts 3), as the Danish actor will join Harrison Ford and Phoebe Waller-Bridge in Indiana Jones 5.
The action-packed sequel hails from director James Mangold and franchise gatekeeper Steven Spielberg, who will produce alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel. Lucasfilm aims to start production this summer, as Disney is slated to release Indy 5 on July 29, 2022.
Plot details and Mikkelsen’s role remain under wraps, but we do know that Oscar winner John Williams will return to compose the score, which will once again incorporate Indy’s iconic theme.
Mikkelsen recently signed on to replace Johnny Depp as Grindewald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. He recently starred in Another Round, which is tipped to win the Oscar for best international feature later this month, and he’ll soon be seen in the revenge movie Riders of Justice. Deadline broke the news of his casting in Indiana Jones 5.

The film made a splash at the Australian box office during the pandemic and is already one of the country’s highest grossers.
