Also, the producer shared his impressions of working with director and screenwriter James Mangold.
“Yes, we are working on a script,” Marshall said. “There’s only one Indiana Jones, and that’s Harrison Ford. What I really admire when working with Jim [Mangold] is his great storytelling skills. I think you might already have seen this in his films, such as Ford vs. Ferrari. It’s all about the characters and the ability to tell a good story. So I’m very happy to see that he is the one working on the script. However, I haven’t seen [the script] yet, so I don’t know what else to tell you. ”
