Disney and Lucasfilm has confirmed that Steven Speilberg will return to direct the fifth entry in the franchise and will star Harrison ford.The film is set to reach theatres on July 19, 2019.
Here is the official statement from studio:
Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019. It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.

The four previous Jones films — including 1984’s “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” and 1989’s “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” have brought in nearly $2 billion in box office worldwide.
