Hollywood star, Harrison Ford comes out again as an adventurous archaeologist in the final installment of the movie ‘Indiana Jones‘ as it premieres at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
According to the organizers of the film festival, ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’ will be at the Cote d’Azur festival on May 18.
Ford has said the much-awaited movie will be his last appearance as the whip-cracking, fedora-wearing archaeologist, who became one of Hollywood’s most iconic characters after the movie’s first installment, “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, in 1981.
The previous entry, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, also premiered at Cannes in 2008.
The new film, said to be set during the 1960s space race, includes a flashback section in which the 80-year-old actor has been digitally de-aged.
It is the first in the series Indiana Jones not to have been directed by Steven Spielberg. He still serves as executive producer but passes the reins to James Mangold.
“In 1995, I was honoured to come to Cannes with my first film ‘Heavy’ as part of the Director’s Fortnight. Twenty-eight years later, I am proud to return with a slightly larger spectacle,” Mangold said in a statement.
Mangold has had a steady run of Hollywood successes, including “Logan” (2017), “Ford v Ferrari” (2019), and Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line” (2005).
This year’s festival runs from May 16 to 27, and the full line-up will be announced in the next couple of weeks.
The latest film from Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, “Killers of the Flower Moon”, is already confirmed to get its world premiere at the festival on May 20.
