‘Indiana Jones 5’ has been facing several delays over time. However, fans can finally rejoice as the filming for the upcoming instalment has finally come to wraps. The untitled fifth instalment of the action-adventure film series has finally finished shooting as reported by aceshowbiz.com.
The film’s director James Mangold and producer Frank Marshall took to Twitter on Sunday, February 27 to celebrate it. Mangold used a still from 1981’s ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ to signify the next phase, which is post-production. “And so begins the first day after the storm..,” he captioned the picture. Marshall, meanwhile, posted a picture of a blue cap with the protagonist’s signature nickname “Indy”, which could be the title of the film.
“That’s a wrap!!! #indianajones,” he simply declared.

The completion of production arrives just a little over a week after Marshall tweeted that filming was “in the home stretch,” along with an exterior photo of Pinewood Studios, where the movie was filmed.
Ever since ‘Indiana Jones 5’ kicked off production in the summer of 2021, it faced several setbacks. Just weeks after the filming started, Harrison Ford sustained a shoulder injury while rehearsing for a fight scene. His injury forced the closure of the production for three months. In November, a crew member died during the filming of the movie in Morocco. Camera operator Nic Cupac was found dead in his hotel room in the city of Fes in November 2021.
“Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Nic Cupac, an incredibly talented colleague and member of the film community who will be greatly missed,” a production rep told the New York Post. His cause of death was not disclosed, but the rep added that Cupac’s “sudden passing was not production-related.” Earlier this month, another crew member suffered a heart attack during the filming of the final scenes. According to a source, the man suddenly collapsed, prompting a panic situation. Harrison Ford, who was standing nearby, reportedly yelled, “Get me a medic quick.”
The filming aside, the movie stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Antonio Banderas and many others. ‘Indiana Jones 5‘ is now scheduled to be released on June 30, 2023.Instagram & Facebook to keep yourself updated with the latest news and reviews.
