Is Harrison Ford too old for another Indiana Jones movie? – CNN International

Posted: Wednesday, March 16, 2016

As we all saw in “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens,” the rugged actor looks good for his age. But even in this era of graying action stars — Bruce Willis is 60, Liam Neeson is 63, and let’s not get started on the cast of “The Expendables” — 77 is rather … senior.

On social media, some fans expressed excitement about the sequel, to be produced by Disney and directed (like the other four Indy films) by Steven Spielberg.

And there’s always the chance that, as in the latest “Star Wars,” Ford cedes the spotlight and most of the action scenes to younger co-stars (ahem, Chris Pratt).

Still, many observers were wondering Tuesday whether another Indiana Jones movie with Ford in the starring role is just the latest example of risk-averse Hollywood recycling old ideas.

Then again, age is just a number. As Indiana Jones himself famously said in “Raiders,” “It’s not the years, honey — it’s the mileage.”
