Phoebe Waller-Bridge talks about her future “Indiana Jones”

Actress Phoebe Waller Bridge talks about the future of ‘Indiana Jones’ after starring in ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate,’ which debuted at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

Although star Harrison Ford has indicated he’s done with the franchise and has hung up his whip after starring in the hit franchise for decades, it looks like Phoebe Waller-Bridge might be interested in reprising his role in the future.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge calls ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate’ a ‘wonderful closing chapter’ for Harrison Ford

On Thursday, Phoebe Waller-Bridge spoke to Deadline at the Disney premiere of “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate.” The three-time Emmy “Fleabag” winner stars as Indiana Jones’ goddaughter Helena Shaw in the fifth film in the “Indiana Jones” franchise.

When asked what it was like for her to join the universe, she replied, “I was already a fan. I was a huge fan and never imagined I would be a part of it. So every day felt like a dream. She then called it a “beautiful closing chapter” for Ford, adding that she was “so proud to be a part of it”.

She was also asked about taking the reins as the new “Indiana Jones” due to online speculation. “I heard about it for the first time,” Waller-Bridge replied in a somewhat ironic response.

When asked for an update on her Amazon shows, Phoebe Waller-Bridge replied, “It’s really the writers’ strike right now, so we’re all taking a break. But if everything works out, then I’ll work on Tomb Raider.

In January, Amazon Studios asked him to write a TV series as part of a possible “Tomb Raider” franchise that would involve a movie, a series, and even games. She would also potentially star in the film, although it’s unclear who would play the lead role.

In May, Harrison Ford received the honorary Palme d’Or at Cannes ahead of the world premiere of “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate.”

This will be the fifth and final time the “Star Wars” alum will play the famous archaeologist, following “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in 1981, “Temple of Doom” in 1984, “Last Crusade” in 1989 and ” Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” in 2008.

The film festival aired a career highlights reel with a John Williams “Star Wars” theme that showed him scenes from “Star Wars” as well as “Blade Runner,” “Working Girl,” “Air Force One.” , “K9: The Widowmaker”, “The Fugitive” and “American Graffiti”.

In response to his latest accolade, the 80-year-old actor said, “I’m thrilled and honored…but I have a movie you need to see.” He also joked on the career highlights reel, adding, “They say before you die, you see your life flash before your eyes, and I just saw my life flash before my eyes.”

In addition to her role in the new movie “Indiana Jones,” Ford has made a bigger appearance on the small screen. He currently stars in the Apple TV+ series “Shrinking” with “How I Met Your Mother” alum Jason Segel, who has nothing but praise for Ford’s acting.

Jason Segel raved about his “Shrinking” co-star in a June 2023 interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “There’s a reason he’s Harrison Ford,” he said. “I did something with Robert Redford a few years ago, and it was a similar experience, where you’re like, ‘Oh, I get it. You’re the real deal. It shows in the room.

He also praised the actor’s improvisational comedic skills. “With Harrison Ford, there was a moment when I saw him sign up and I was like, ‘Oh, we’re doing it now.’ And he was good at it. He’s really, really good at it,” Segel said. “There was a whole potato run, where I end up eating these potatoes. [He said] ‘Do what you want with them. Boil them, cook them. It was a riff that came out of his mouth. He’s really smart, he’s really funny, and he really understands acting.

“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate” hits theaters later this month.
