Mads Mikkelsen Joins the Cast of ‘Indiana Jones 5‘. It seems Mads Mikkelsen is quickly becoming a top billing actor in Hollywood! Mikkelsen has just been cast in the upcoming Indiana Jones 5 alongside Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (unspecified).
In addition, the inimitable John Williams will return to score the film, continuing a musical journey which began 40 years ago with Raiders of the Lost Ark. Williams’ unforgettable Indy soundtracks, packed with all the epic thrills, suspense, romance and excitement that fans have come to expect from an Indiana Jones movie, have become as beloved and familiar as the adventurer-hero’s signature hat and whip.
“I’m thrilled to be starting a new adventure, collaborating with a dream team of all-time great filmmakers,” said the film’s director James Mangold. “Steven, Harrison, Kathy, Frank, and John are all artistic heroes of mine. When you add Phoebe, a dazzling actor, brilliant creative voice and the chemistry she will undoubtedly bring to our set, I can’t help but feel as lucky as Indiana Jones himself.”
Kathleen Kennedy, Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel will serve as producers. Indy swings into theaters July 29, 2022. It is currently unknown what role Mads Mikkelsen will be playing in the upcoming adventure film, but be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Indiana Jones!
