Emmy-winning “Fleabag” creator/star Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been cast as the female lead opposite Harrison Ford in the long-awaited fifth “Indiana Jones” film at Paramount Pictures.
The 78-year-old Ford reprises his role as the globetrotting archeologist in the James Mangold-directed feature which also has legendary Oscar-winning composer John Williams signing on to score.
Mangold said in a statement: “I’m thrilled to be starting a new adventure, collaborating with a dream team of all-time great filmmakers. Steven, Harrison, Kathy, Frank, and John are all artistic heroes of mine. When you add Phoebe, a dazzling actor, brilliant creative voice and the chemistry she will undoubtedly bring to our set, I can’t help but feel as lucky as Indiana Jones himself.”
Waller-Bridge, who also created “Killing Eve” and did a script polish on the upcoming “No Time to Die,” previously worked with Lucasfilm as the droid L3-37 in 2018’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story”.
