‘Indiana Jones 5’ Taps Writer David Koepp, a Steven Spielberg Regular

Steven Spielberg is tapping a friend of the “Indiana Jones” family to pen the next installment, hiring David Koepp to write “Indiana Jones 5.”

Earlier this week Disney announced that Spielberg would be returning to direct the next installment with Harrison Ford on board to reprise his role of the adventure-seeking archaeologist.

The film has been set to bow on July 19, 2019, so Koepp has plenty of time to pen the new chapter.

Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall are joining Spielberg as producers. No plot details are known at this time, nor has a production start date been set.

Koepp wrote the last Installment in the series, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” and has previously worked with Spielberg on “Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic Park: the Lost World.”

He is repped by CAA. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
