Harrison Ford is reportedly on track to fight Nazis, according to the plot details for Indiana Jones 5. 

In a new Empire cover story, the highly-anticipated film is confirmed will be set in 1969 against the backdrop of the United States and the Soviet Union space race. The former successfully landed on the moon, however Indiana Jones Jones is faced with “uncomfortable truths” in the pending mission. The simple fact is that the moon-landing program was run by a bunch of ex-Nazis,” co-writer Jez Butterworth shared, adding, “How ‘ex’ they are is the question. And it gets up Indy’s nose…” Ultimately, this becomes a big problem for Jones. Butterworth ads, “It’s not just that the model of what a hero is has completely changed. It’s not just that they’re looking for something where there’s nothing up there – it’s like Reno without the gambling, or whatever his line is. But the people that are behind it are, you know, his sworn enemies.”

Mads Mikkelsen’s character, villain Voller, is partly inspired by real-life Nazi and NASA engineer Wernher von Braun. The actor says his character motivation is “a man who would like to correct some of the mistakes of the past,” continuing, “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.”

Indiana Jones 5 hits theaters on June 30, 2023.
