Director Steven Spielberg has confirmed the start date for Indiana Jones 5.

Yes, it is happening.

The director revealed the date, as well as the shooting location, whilst in London for last night’s Empire Awards. Speaking at the event (via ComicBook.com), Spielberg said:

“It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK.” He added: “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.”

So, there you go – Indy 5 will shoot in the UK next April.

Details of Indiana Jones 5 are being kept under wraps at present. All that is known for sure is that Spielberg will direct, Harrison Ford will star and Shia LaBeouf will not appear in the movie.
