Steven Spielberg Thinks It’s Time For A Female Indiana Jones

Steven Spielberg is ready to take Indiana Jones in a new direction.

The Ready Player One director feels the next Indiana Jones should be a woman.

After the upcoming fifth film, Spielberg says its time for the character to take a different form.

During an interview with The Sun, he discussed the many female influences in his life.

“My mom was strong. She had a voice, she had a very strong opinion.

“I have been very lucky to be influenced by women, several of whom I have just loved madly — my mom and my wife.”

The upcoming fifth film “will be Harrison Ford’s last Indiana Jones movie, I am pretty sure, but it will certainly continue after that.”

“We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that,” he added.

Since the original Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford is in his 70s, fans thought it was time for a younger actor to be cast.  Many suggested Chris Pratt but Spielberg said no one was in consideration at the time.

“It’s certainly not my intention to ever have another actor step into his shoes and the way there have been many actors that have played Spider-Man or Batman,” the director said.   “There is only going to be one actor playing Indiana Jones and that’s Harrison Ford.

Filming for the fifth film will begin next April.
