She will co-star with “Indiana Jones” franchise lead Harrison Ford in the untitled fifth film.
James Mangold is taking over directing duties from Steven Spielberg, who helmed the first four “Indiana Jones” pics. Legendary composer John Williams is back to score the fifth installment, after leading the franchise to adventurous heights in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” 40 years ago.
“I’m thrilled to be starting a new adventure, collaborating with a dream team of all-time great filmmakers,” Mangold said in a statement. “Steven, Harrison, Kathy, Frank, and John are all artistic heroes of mine. When you add Phoebe, a dazzling actor, brilliant creative voice and the chemistry she will undoubtedly bring to our set, I can’t help but feel as lucky as Indiana Jones himself.”
