Harrison Ford On Indiana Jones: 'It's Perfectly Appropriate And Okay For Him To Come Back Again'


Harrison Ford may don Indiana Jones' famed fedora once again. In an interview with The Telegraph, Ford said he would be open to playing Dr. Henry Jones Jr. (they named the dog Indiana) for a fifth time onscreen.

"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass," Ford, 71, told The Telegraph.

Whether Ford gets the chance to play Indiana Jones again is, of course, up for debate. Right now, no plans are in motion for a fifth film, owing to the fact that producer George Lucas has not yet found an acceptable MacGuffin with which to drive the plot.

"I really haven't found the MacGuffin yet," Lucas told Vulture in 2011. "I mean, I know what it's about, but I just have to find a MacGuffin that fits into the arena we're working in."

Those comments were echoed by producer Frank Marshall in an interview last year with Collider.

“I say, for me, ['Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' is] the last hurrah," he said, referencing the much-derided fourth film in the franchise. "I know that yes, we talk about it, but there’s no idea; there’s no MacGuffin.”
