When Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, and Disney signed on for another Indiana Jones, the Internet collectively shrugged, "Sure".

The fifth Indiana Jones movie will be a direct sequel to "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull", producer Frank Marshall said Tuesday at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Both in the Jason Bourne series and on Indiana Jones, we are not going to do the Bond thing. "We think those characters are iconic, and those are the only actors who can play that", he said.

"Indiana Jones 5" will not recast Indiana Jones, as producer Frank Marshall assures fans that Harrison Ford will always be the only actor to portray Indiana Jones on the big screen. Luckily, The Force Awakens' position on the Star Wars timeline blessed it with minimal acknowledgement of the prequels; yet, Indiana Jones 5 is going to have a tougher time trying to break free from its predecessor's shadow.

Marshall didn't provide many details beyond that, so it's not clear what he means by continuation. Screenwriter David Koepp, who worked on the last film, has been hired to write the script. Or even more awkwardly: the utterly tragic, but deeply convenient, death of Indiana Jones' aggravating son? One of those challenges could be Ford's age.

Not much else is known about the movie, which has already been scheduled for a July 19, 2019 release date. Maybe they'll do the same with Ford.

We shouldn't jump to any conclusions, though.

We're just getting the deal together.

Marshall, Ford, and Spielberg will all be collaborating once again on the recently announced "Indiana Jones 5", which will be produced alongside Marshall's wife and Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy.
