Harrison Ford says he’s eager to pick up his iconic bullwhip for a fifth instalment of Indiana Jones. Only this time he’ll have to wear extra large pants to hide his depends (damned that enlarged prostate and the incontinence it brings), the set will have to carry portable defibrillators to start up his heart again when the scene requires intensive action such as crouching or bending to check out a treasure chest (at which point poo particles and farts may or may not be released) and extra care must be taken to not leave his dentures in Karen Allen’s mouth when the scene requires geriatric foreplay.
Ford said: “There’s a lot of pleasures in making an Indiana Jones movie, and one of them is working with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg again.
“One of them is making a movie that’s one of the rare big-scale movies that are being done these days. I get a lot of opportunity for collaboration and openness from those films.
“George is working on an idea – if it comes to a fruitful stage, we’re all very interested in making another.”
“I think it would be interesting to advance the understanding of the character and deepen the relationship between him and his son and play on the relationships,” Ford said.
“I’ve always been interested in developing the character, and bringing more information about the character each time we’ve gone out.
“We’ve found ways of doing that by introducing Sean Connery as my father, Mutt as my son, bringing back Karen Allen – all of those things that work for me. So if we find another story to do and we develop the character a little further and I get a chance to do another one, I’d be happy as pie to do it.”
