Entertainment Weekly: Don’t Look for Mutt in Indiana Jones V

Writer David Koepp says the script is sound; Indiana Jones V production could begin soon…

“The Shia LaBeouf character is not in the film,” explained screenwriter David Koepp to Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview. “Harrison [Ford] plays Indiana Jones, that I can certainly say.”

The fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise is currently due in July of 2020, with the release date prevsiouly pushed back from 2019.

EW’s Joey Nolfi adds:

Koepp’s confirmation follows wide speculation that Ford, who originated the role of the globetrotting adventurer in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, would eventually abdicate his throne to a younger actor as the series progressed under Steven Spielberg’s direction. Kingdom of the Crystal Skull‘s ending even teased LaBeouf’s character’s potential future in the series, with a closing scene that saw the iconic headpiece ride a breeze and land at the Even Stevens actor’s feet, before Ford swooped in to grab it out of his hands and place it back on his own head.

Koepp was cagey as to further details, admitting only that the plot will concern “some precious artifact that they’re all looking for…”

As for Mutt, LaBeouf’s representatives did not get back to EW.
