Harrison Ford’s globetrotting archaeologist is coming back and he’s got an Emmy-winning “Fleabag” star with him this time.
Disney announced Friday that British actress Phoebe-Waller Bridge has signed on to appear in the upcoming fifth “Indiana Jones” movie alongside Ford, who’s been wearing Indy’s familiar fedora since 1981’s “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
The new film, directed by “Ford v Ferrari’s” James Mangold and produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, Simon Emanuel and original Indy director Steven Spielberg, is scheduled in theaters July 29, 2022.
In addition, 89-year-old Oscar-winning composer John Williams, whose “Raiders” theme is one of the most iconic themes in movie history, is returning to score the franchise’s latest adventure.

The still-untitled new “Indiana Jones” film was originally scheduled to release in theaters in July 2020 but in 2018, the film was delayed a year due to script issues and then was delayed again to 2022 last April. Spielberg also originally planned to direct the new movie before handing over the reins to Mangold in February 2020.
