Harrison Ford Wants To Get Indiana Jones 5 Right

He hopes to take a leaf out of the Marvel Studios playbook and give audiences something they don't anticipate seeing.

Harrison Ford is determined to get Indiana Jones 5 "right".

The 77-year-old actor will reprise his role as the iconic adventurer in a new installment of the series, the first in 13 years, and the screen legend says the team are currently fine-tuning pre-production before they begin to shoot the movie.

Harrison told "We've got some scheduling issues, a few script things still to do but we're determined to get it right before we get it made."

Ford insisted that he doesn't want to put out another Indiana Jones flick unless they can "kill it".

Citing the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe , he said: "I don't really want to give them what they wanna see, I want to give them something they didn't anticipate seeing.

"The Marvel movies are a spectacular example of a success that worked the other way round  — they killed it.

"We're not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we're in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best."

Meanwhile, Ford also opened up on his role as John Thornton in The Call of the Wild, an adaptation of the novel by Jack London, and admitted that he is seeking to please audiences with his roles.

He explained: "It's very gratifying if it brings pleasure to the audience. My job is to tell stories and disappear into the character, I don't want to be Harrison Ford, I want to be a character."

He recalled reading the novel as a child and felt that his character was lacking a narrative in the plot, something he is determined to put right through his relationship with dog Buck.

Ford commented: "When this came along, I looked at the character and I thought this could be a really interesting family film to make. I was familiar with the book from high school and the one thing that was missing a story for John Thornton. He appears in the books as an instrument of god but I wanted his relationship with Buck to have an effect on him that would redeem him." — BANG

The Call of the Wild opens in cinemas Apr 9.
