Steven Spielberg thinks it’s time for moviegoers to meet Indiana "Joan", as the director revealed to The Sun earlier this week that he is considering having Harrison Ford’s iconic Indiana Jones character be played by a woman.
"We'd have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that," the director said when asked whether he would make the infamous explorer female.
Spielberg and Harrison Ford are set to reunite to film the fifth installment in the Indiana Jones franchise next April, but the director confirmed that the film will mark Ford's final go at playing the archeology professor. "This will be Harrison Ford's last Indiana Jones movie, I am pretty sure, but it will certainly continue after that."
