Steven Spielberg set to return to direct Indiana Jones 5

Iconic director Steven Spielberg has said that he wants to return to direct another instalment of Indiana Jones, according to reports over the weekend. 

The director has been behind the camera for all four of Indiana Jones' previous screen outings, and, according to Deadline, he wants to return for a fifth time, if the script is to his liking. 

The report also states that Spielberg wants Parks And Recreation and Guardians Of The Galaxy star Chris Pratt to be the new Indiana Jones. Pratt has previously been linked with the role and was reported to be in early talks, but, as the report stresses, it's very early days for both Pratt and Spielberg in terms of joining the project. 

Harrison Ford has starred as Indiana Jones in each of the explorer's four cinmetic outings so far, last appearing in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull back in 2008. He has stated in interviews that he would relish the chance to play the role again. 

Spielberg's next project is a thriller titled St. James Place, which stars Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, Alan Alda and Eve Hewson. It is a Cold War based spy thriller and has a script from The Coen Brothers. 

St. James Place is due for release in October of this year.
