International hunter of rare antiquities isn't a job you just cast off like a battered old leather jacket.
It's for life, and as if to compound the fact, Harrison Ford has said that he could feasibly return as the adventurer Indiana Jones irrespective of his 71 years of age.
"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass," Ford told the Daily Telegraph.
"To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do."
He was last seen in his fedora and brandishing his bullwhip in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008), the fourth film in the series, released in 2008 and co-starring Karen Allen, Cate Blanchett and Shia LaBeouf.
A fifth film would not be such a bad idea, as far as the Hollywood accountants are concerned.
'Crystal Skull' made not far off $800 million (£521 million) from its $185 million (£120 million) production budget.
But while critics were respectful in their reviews, it is arguably the least loved of the iconic series.
