Harrison Ford gets age reduction for Indiana Jones 5, swears it won’t be bad

Digitally aging actors must be a compelling proposition for a studio. Not only can you tap into the nostalgia of generations, but you can also bypass the backlash when reprising a beloved character. All would be better if, as in the new new Indiana Jones movie, it’s only for one scene. That way, you can provide the kind of connective tissue needed to legitimize a new sequel—especially a sequel made 41 years after the first.

The latest details about the film in development surfaced on Monday as part of Empire magazine storyrevealed a few facts about the new movie’s prologue, including the fact that it will age down Harrison Ford star with his age in the original trilogy.

According to director James Mangold (Logan), the film’s opening will be set in 1944 in a Nazi-infested castle as Indy goes on all sorts of adventures to be free. And, supposedly, he’ll make all this look like his ex Raiders of the Lost Ark itself, though that remains to be seen.

After all, Disney, the company that produced this movie under 20th Century Pictures, has a complicated history of aging and is responsible for some of the weirdest and most jarring uses it has ever seen. have so far. Famously, the company recreated Peter Cushing Grand Moff Tarkin and Carrie Fisher as Princess Leiawith unintentionally weird and somewhat horrifying results, for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The series also faced mixed results with digitally de-aged Luke Skywalker in Palestinianspulled the actor’s voice back through the decades until 1983.

But perhaps the most notorious de-aging belongs to Netflix, not Disney. That studio is only responsible for Martin Scorsese’s Irish, in which it recreates Robert de Niro, Joe Pesci, and Al Pacino across a film story spanning several decades with diametrically opposite outcomes.

To help avoid any of these problems, Mangold worked with visual effects studio Industrial Light and Magic to work on new software that aggregated a series of archival footage of young Ford himself and matched it. with new footage, combining the two into what the team hopes to achieve. Seamless look.

Indiana Jones 5 producer Kathleen Kennedy, who also produces all of the aforementioned Star Wars properties, is optimistic about some of the new techniques that have emerged since digital de-aging first made a major foray into cinema.

“My hope is, even though it’s going to be technologically speaking, you just have to watch it and say, ‘Oh my God, they just found the footage. This is something they shot 40 years ago,'” Kennedy told Empire.

Famous for being grumpy Ford also shares some of Kennedy’s optimism. The actor told Empire: “This is the first time I see it in a place that I trust. And while he’s certainly obligated to say nice things about the movie, it’s worth remembering that of all the series he’s worked on, Ford has never been shy about calling Indy his favorite character. , or about the desire to return to it. And a lot of love for the franchise must be worth something, so maybe Ford wouldn’t have gotten into the de-aging process if he didn’t really think it worked.

Whatever the end result, we’ll have to wait until the first footage of the film is released to see for ourselves, or possibly until the final release date of June 30.
