Harrison Ford is looking forward to getting to work on Indiana Jones 5.

Shooting on the next film in the franchise is said to be taking place in a couple of months’ time, according to Vanity Fair.

The actor is raring to get back in the hat, as he told press at the premiere of his new movie The Call Of The Wild: ‘I can’t tell you any details, but I’m delighted to come back.

‘We made the efforts to make it fun and ambitious as the originals. It’s going to be good.’

Indiana Jones 5 will be directed by Steven Spielberg and could be the 77-year-old’s last run in the role. It won’t be a reboot, but instead carry on the saga we last saw in 2008’s The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

That installment, also directed by Spielberg, starred Cate Blanchett and Shia LeBeouf.

Set in 1957, the archaeologist was called back into action to uncover the truth behind artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls.

The Star Wars actor has been playing the role since Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981.

It was followed by Temple of Doom in 1984, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in 1989.

While promoting The Call Of The Wild, in which he plays a grieving father who makes friends with a dog, he slammed ‘the current leaders’ in the US over their response to climate change and the environment.

‘The current leaders in our country are ludicrous and don’t believe in science. What they have replaced science with is ideology,’ he said.

‘Ideology doesn’t solve the problems that we have—science does solve the problem, and leads us to the solutions. Science is tested knowledge, and it’s upsetting that they don’t realize this.’
