Hollywood was in the quest for creating American version of James Bond. They wanted their presence in the adventurous- espionage space so as to contend with British’s Bond. Incidentally, George Lucas conceived of a character, which was flamboyant and adventurous enough to compete with James Bond. The character was Indiana Jones.
Steven Spielberg had long been associated with George Lucas, and was a close friend of him. Spielberg was entrusted with the task of building Indiana Jones into a franchise by Lucas. One of the greatest storytellers of our time, Speilberg took the job. And the rest is history, as in the last two decades, four installments of Indiana Jones were made and attained critical success as well.
Harrison Ford had long been associated with Lucas since Star Wars as Han Solo. He was considered the perfect choice for Indiana Jones as he already had exhibited his expertise as an explorer. Ford was delighted when he was approached to reprise Indiana Jones for the fifth time as he always wanted to work with Speilberg repeatedly. When the film releases in July of 2019, he would have turned 70 years old. Still, fanboys and critics would admire him as Indiana Jones.
The actor was recently a guest on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Excerpt from the show: “The opportunity to work with Steven [Spielberg] again, and the chance to revisit this character which has brought pleasure to so many people — not to mention me. It’s great fun to play this character, it’s great fun to work with Steven. I’m looking forward to it.” Says Harrison Ford Now, there is a stiff competition between Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford as to who worked maximum with Spielberg. We don’t know yet, who is going to win, but, we do know who is leading.
