Mads Mikkelsen Joins the Cast of Indiana Jones 5

Shortly after learning Phoebe Waller-Bridge was cast in the upcoming Indiana Jones sequel, word has come that Mads Mikkelsen has signed on as well!

Two new cast members for Indiana Jones 5 within the span of a week?! My goodness, it feels like this film is actually coming together. Earlier this week, Deadline reported that Mads Mikkelsen has also come on board the long-gestating sequel that will see Harrison Ford once again take up the whip.

There’s no word on what role Mikkelsen will take in the film, and I hate to typecast, but I’d be damned if he wouldn’t be a phenomenal villain. Any way, it looks like production is starting to gear up as director James Mangold is meeting with other talent to fill out the rest of the cast. If things keep up, filming will begin this Summer, for realsies this time.

Indiana Jones 5 is slated to launch on July 29, 2022.
