Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks  Steven Spielberg is keen to make Indiana Jones 5 — even if it puts Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford in competition for “actor who’s made the most Spielberg movies.” In an exclusive conversation about their new film Bridge of Spies, director Spielberg and star Hanks shared stories about the movies they’ve made and speculated about their next collaboration. “We’ve gotta figure this out because now, Tom is tied with Harrison Ford: Harrison and I did four movies, Tom and I have done four movies,” Spielberg explained. After the next Indiana Jones, he said, “I’ve got to make another one with Tom, that’ll be five for Tom, five for Harrison.

Steven Spielberg is keen to make Indiana Jones 5 — even if it puts Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford in competition for “actor who’s made the most Spielberg movies.” In an exclusive conversation about their new film Bridge of Spies, director Spielberg and star Hanks shared stories about the movies they’ve made and speculated about their next collaboration.

“We’ve gotta figure this out because now, Tom is tied with Harrison Ford: Harrison and I did four movies, Tom and I have done four movies,” Spielberg explained. “Now I’ll probably do an Indy 5 with Harrison, [so] it’ll be five for Harrison, four for Tom.”

Fortunately for Hanks, Spielberg has plans to reconcile this imbalance. After the next Indiana Jones, he said, “I’ve got to make another one with Tom, that’ll be five for Tom, five for Harrison. And I think I’m going to leapfrog that way for the rest of my career. With Daniel Day-Lewis in everything else!”

Plans for Indiana Jones 5 were confirmed by producer Kathleen Kennedy in May, though she specified there was no timeline and “we haven’t started working on a script yet.” Spielberg’s quote suggests that both he and Harrison Ford are on board for the sequel, though neither has officially said as much.

Here are some more highlights from Hanks and Spielberg’s conversation with Yahoo Movies.
