'Indiana Jones 5' shooting is in full swing, with legendary Harrison Ford returning to his beloved adventurous role. Looks like 79-year-old actor is still able to impress his colleagues, with Mads Mikkelsen sharing a particularly mind-blowing detail about his time on the set.
New installment in fan favorite series of films won't be directed by its creator Steven Spielberg – the film is helmed by James Mangold ('Logan', 'Ford vs. Ferrari'), who was personally selected for this role by the 'Jaws' director himself.
In his interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Mads Mikkelsen, who is expected to play the role of a main villain, talked about his time on the set. Stating that the upcoming film will be much closer in feel to Spielberg's 1981 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' than to the critically reviled fourth chapter of the series, Mikkelsen added some praise for Mangold.
"They're going heavily back to the first and second film and getting that original feel, the original Indy, something dense and epic… It felt like a Spielberg film, though it's obviously James making it with the same vision", Mikkelson told THR.
The one thing that really surprised Mikkelsen was his co-star Ford's perfect physical form.
"I remember the first day we were shooting, it was a night shoot, then we stopped at 5 a.m. — and then he got on his mountain bike and went biking for 50 kilometers. Harrison is a monster of a man, a very nice monster".
Harrison Ford doesn't seem to be afraid to push himself to the limit, which is a very good trait for an action star. And given his serious acting abilities, Indiana Jones fans will be more than pleased with his upcoming performance in the fifth installment of the franchise.
