Filming of the new Indiana Jones movie will start soon, Actor Harrison Ford told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her talk show.
"The production is set to begin this summer," he said.
In an appearance on CBS Sunday Morning, set to air February 16, the actor put the start as early as two months from the date the interview was filmed, reports CNN.
"I can deny that it's not happening," Ford told DeGeneres when asked about the reports of another instalment.
"So it is happening," the host confirmed.
Indeed, it is, Ford said.
"It's going to be fun. I am excited," he said. "They're great fun to make."
The last film from the Indiana Jones film franchise was 2008's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," which came almost 20 years after the third movie.
"Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" and "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" were released in 1981, 1984 and 1989, respectively.
In his interview on CBS, Ford said he feels a sense of "responsibility" any time he returns to an iconic role.
"I feel obliged to make sure that our efforts are as ambitious as they were when we started," he said.
