Indiana Jones 5 adds Mads Mikkelsen to its impressive cast

Indiana Jones 5 just added another name to its cast list, Hannibal and Death Stranding star Mads Mikkelsen. 

The news comes from Deadline (opens in new tab), just a few days after it was revealed that Phoebe Waller-Bridge has landed a lead role in the movie, joining Harrison Ford. 

There’s no news yet on the role Mikkelsen will play or what adventurer Jones might face during the new film, but a release date has been set for July 29, 2022. 

Directing the impressive lineup will be James Mangold – he previously helmed Marvel’s Logan and The Wolverine – as he takes over from Steven Spielberg. It’s a first for the movie series, but Spielberg will still be on set as a hands-on producer.

In December, Frank Marshall, a producer on the movie, teased the movie while talking with GamesRadar+. “Raiders was really a special movie for me,” he said. “It was my first sole producing credit, my first [Oscar] nomination. I met my wife – I probably should have started with that. You know, it was my first movie with Steven and George [Lucas, who wrote Radiers]. It was really, really a milestone for me.

“But those relationships, we’ve kept over the years. Harrison’s still one of my best friends. I can’t wait to work with him again. We’re going to overcome [the COVID] challenge, and we’re going to be back next year sometime, and there’ll be another Indiana Jones.”
