Indiana Jones and the Temple of AARP

Steven Spielberg is planning to start shooting the untitled fifth Indiana Jones movie for Disney in the U.K. in a little more than a year.
...
“It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK. The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers — everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here,” Spielberg said.
Harrison Ford will be nudging his 77th birthday when they start shooting. That's a bit ancient for an action movie hero.

It's going to be hard to envision a movie that was as pointless or stupid as Indy #4, but I'm not going to be surprised if it is.

Whether your favorite metaphor is jumping the shark or nuking the fridge, the Indiana Jones franchise has passed it.
