Steven Spielberg says Indiana Jones 5 will star Harrison Ford

Just months after producer Kathleen Kennedy confirmed there were plans for a fifth Indiana Jones film, director Steven Spielberg has released some more details on who will star in the titular role.

In an interview with Yahoo!, Spielberg said he would be teaming up with franchise veteran Harrison Ford for the new installment.

"Now I'll probably do an Indy 5 with Harrison, [so] it'll be five for Harrison, four for Tom," the director said, alluding to the fact that he would have done five movies with Harrison Ford and only four movies with longtime collaborator Tom Hanks.

Harrison Ford hasn't commented on the role, and chances are he probably won't until he's done promoting the upcoming Star Wars installment, The Force Awakens, which is scheduled to be released on Dec. 17.

The most recent film in the franchise, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was released in 2008 and starred Ford alongside Cate Blanchett and Shia LaBeouf.

The film is still in negotiation at the studio.
