Phoebe Waller-Bridge Joins Indiana Jones Sequel, with John Williams Returning to Score

by George Bate for @FilmCodex

Phoebe Waller-Bridge will join Harrison Ford in the upcoming Indiana Jones sequel, reports Deadline and later confirmed by Lucasfilm.

Waller-Bridge, famous for her award-winning work on Fleabag, will play the female lead opposite co-star Harrison Ford, who will be picking up the fedora and whip for a fifth film in the franchise. Waller-Bridge is no stranger to big franchises, having a scene-stealing role as L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story and co-writing the new James Bond film No Time to Die. No further details about Waller-Bridge’s character are known at this time.

Also coming back to the Indiana Jones franchise is the legendary John Williams. Williams has composed the score of all four previous films in the franchise and is due to return for his fifth go-around with the character.

Not returning (at least in a directorial role) is Steven Spielberg, who vacated the position and handed the mantle to James Mangold. The director of Logan and Ford vs. Ferrari is in the process of rounding out the cast for his Indiana Jones film, with production due to start this summer ahead of its July 2022 release.
