Empire have revealed the first look at two of the villains from the as yet untitled fifth ‘Indiana Jones’ along with details about the film.
The story will take place in 1969 and Indy will once again be up against Nazis. Set against the backdrop of the space race the film will explore the real-life fact that former Nazis went on to work for America and NASA. The film asks the question of how former these Nazis were.
The simple fact is that the moon-landing program is run by a bunch of ex-Nazis. How ‘ex’ they are is the question. And it gets up Indy’s nose.Jez Butterworth- script writer/Empire
Mads Mikkelsen plays the lead villain Voller, a character inspired in part by real-life Nazi-turned-NASA-engineer Wernher von Braun.
He’s a man who would like to correct some of the mistakes of the past. There is something that could make the world a much better place to live in. He would love to get his hands on it. Indiana Jones wants to get his hands on it as well. And so, we have a story.<Mads Mikkelsen/Empire
Boyd Holbrook plays Voller’s henchman, Klaber.
‘Indiana Jones 5’ is released next summer and a trailer is expected soon.
