In a lengthy profile at Hollywood Reporter, Steven Spielberg opens up about his past, present and future as one of Hollywood's most prominent directors as well as behind-the-scenes happenings with DreamWorks. Looking ahead to his future, Spielberg commented on the upcoming fifth "Indiana Jones" film.
The still untitled installment, the first since 2008's "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," will reteam Spielberg with star Harrison Ford and composer John Williams. Spielberg said he's "super excited" for the film and said "this one is straight down the pike for the fans." And while he kept quiet about the film's plot, he did make one major promise: "The one thing I will tell you is I'm not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it."
Spielberg's reveal is alluding to the fact that -- we'll give a spoiler alert -- Harrison Ford's most recent return to a franchise in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" led to a final, tragic end for his character Han Solo. It looks like the same won't happen in the fifth Indiana Jones film.
The next "Indiana Jones" arrives on July 19, 2019.
