Another day, another addition to a massively successful Hollywood franchise: Indiana Jones is reportedly getting a fifth installment, which is due out in 2019.

Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford have both signed on to direct and star in the movie, respectively, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” says Disney chairman Alan Horn to THR. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”

Kathleen Kennedy and Frank marshall are set to produce the film, which is good news for fans: Both have been deeply involved with the franchise since its inception. Kennedy worked as Spielberg’s associate on 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark and Marshall was the film’s producer. The pair — who are married — have also worked on the following three movies.

The upcoming installment will be the first in the series without George Lucas’ involvement. He sold his production company Lucasfilm to Disney back in 2012, and they officially have the rights to Indiana Jones.

Fans may look to the fifth film as a way to undo the 2008 movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which starred Ford and Shia LaBeouf and was largely polarizing in its reception.

Mark your calendars: The untitled fifth film will hit theaters on July 19, 2019.
