James Mangold (‘Logan’) directing this film will feature a script from Mangold himself along with ‘Le Mans’ 66′ collaborators Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth. The long-awaited sequel is scheduled to premiere in the United States on July 29, 2022.
The film has been in development since 2016, although it has suffered several setbacks such as different revisions of the script by David Koepp, Jonathan Kasdan and Dan Fogelman.

Also returning is John Williams as composer of the soundtrack, continuing a musical journey that began 40 years ago.
Launched in 1981 with “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” among the four films in the franchise, they have grossed nearly $ 2 billion at the global box office. Also, previously Bob Iger, president and CEO of Lucasfilm’s parent company, Disney, said that “Indiana Jones 5” will not be the last film in the series.
