Disney Confirms a New 'Indiana Jones' Is in the Works
Yesterday brought a set of cast and character photos from the forthcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but that's not the only news breaking from Vanity Fair's upcoming June issue. In addition, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that a new Indiana Jones film is eventually on the way.

Lucasfilm and Disney brokered a deal in 2012 that allowed the latter to work on "future films." They purchased the rights to works like Willow and Radioland Murders, as well as the Indiana Jones franchise.

Speaking with VF's Bruce Handy, Kennedy said a new Indiana Jones movie "will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I'm not quite sure. We haven't started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it."

In other words, it may be a while before the new Indiana Jones hits theatres, but it's coming eventually. 

Earlier this year, Deadline reported that go-to leading man Chris Pratt was Steven Spielberg's top choice for Indy.
