The film has yet to be made, but a release date has already been set. According to Box Office Mojo, Paramount Pictures has marked Thursday, May 22, 2008 as the day to launch "Indiana Jones 4" in theaters.
With the announcement, the project thus maintains the Memorial Day weekend release strategy of the last two "Indiana Jones" movies while mirroring the last two "Star Wars" movies and "The Matrix Reloaded" with its Thursday launch. Also set to be released during the same weekend will be Warner Bros.' "Speed Racer."
The follow-up to the hit franchise after the last installment in 1989, the picture sees Harrison Ford, at age 64, back to reprise his role as the adventurer with famed filmmaker Steven Spielberg on board to direct. Filming is expected to take place throughout 2007.
