HARRISON Ford is to don a fedora to portray adventurous archaeologist Indiana Jones in a new adventure.

The Hollywood star will be 70 when he films the fifth adventure.

Stephen Spielberg has confirmed that George Lucas is penning a new script and filming is expected to begin at the end of next year.

He said: “George is working on Indy V. He’s working on the story.”

The daredevil digger’s last outing was in 2008’s Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which received mixed reviews from critics.
