Indiana Jones producer Frank Marshall (Kathleen Kennedy’s husband) has confirmed that the director of the next Indiana Jones movie will be James Mangold.
Steven Spielberg, who has directed all 4 of the Indiana Jones movies prior to this left the 5th movie a couple of months back. Lucasfilm seems to be struggling to get this movie off the ground since several screenwriters have been hired to write script. The film is currently set for release in 2022, but delays have already happened with this movie in the past. Time should be of the essence for this project since Harrison Ford isn’t getting any younger.
Mangold’s films include the recent Ford Vs. Ferrari and Logan. He’s got lots of experience in big Hollywood projects.
