Harrison Ford Thinks It Would Be "Perfectly Appropriate" For Him To Return For Another 'Indiana Jones' Movie

The threat/promise of "Indiana Jones 5" still looms overhead, and at the very least, conversations have been happening in some capacity or another. Back in 2011, Steven Spielberg revealed that there was already some discussion as to what the MacGuffin might be, a few months later it seemed that plans for continuing the franchise were kiboshed due to George Lucas' retirement. But as we well know from "Star Wars," even if he's kicking up his feet on beach somewhere, brands mean money and studios will always find a way to keep them alive, but should it even been attempted with Harrison Ford now in his early '70s? Well, according to the actor, the answer is: yes.

The threat/promise of "Indiana Jones 5" still looms overhead, and at the very least, conversations have been happening in some capacity or another. Back in 2011, Steven Spielberg revealed that there was already some discussion as to what the MacGuffin might be, a few months later it seemed that plans for continuing the franchise were kiboshed due to George Lucas' retirement. But as we well know from "Star Wars," even if he's kicking up his feet on a beach somewhere, brands mean money and studios will always find a way to keep them alive, but should it even been attempted with Harrison Ford now in his early '70s? Well, according to the actor, the answer is: yes.

"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass," he told The Telegraph. And while Ford may not be in the same shape as he was a couple of decades ago, he thinks he can still reach the core qualities of Indiana Jones nonetheless.

"To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do," he said.

So what do you think? Can quips and smart aleck remarks be enough for Ford to crack the whip in another "Indiana Jones" movie or should they just start the whole thing over and/or find a new into the series? With rumored roles in both "Star Wars: Episode 7" and "Blade Runner 2," are we gearing up for a Ford nostalgia overload? Let us know.
