Indiana Jones 5 is gearing up to be a pretty incredible movie, and now one of its stars, Mads Mikkelsen has given us another reason to be excited about this film.
Mikkelsen revealed this during a recent interview with Collider.
I was so happy when I heard that they had cast one of my favourite actors of all time, Mads Mikkelsen in Indiana Jones 5.
He’s a brilliant actor and I’m pretty sure he’s been cast as the villain in Indiana Jones 5.
Mikkelsen is brilliant at playing the villain.
He’s now come out and revealed how he felt when he first read the script, and it sounds like he loved the movie.
Mads Mikkelsen loves the Indiana Jones 5 script
Here’s what Mads Mikkelsen had to say about the Indiana Jones 5 script:
I’m very, very excited about it. I re-watched Raiders of the Lost Ark the other day, it is so well-done and so charming, and it’s such great storytelling. So yes it’s a great honor to be part of that franchise that I grew up with. I’m in a lucky position where they let me read the script before. And yes, it was everything I wished it to be, so that was just great.
I do think I’m invited in to create a character, I think that everybody wants that. That’s why they pick certain actors that they think can come up with certain things, and it will be a collaboration as it always is. Interesting enough, there is kind of a genre mix in Indiana Jones always. There is something that is a little larger-than-life, almost back to the 30s with a Peter Lorre kind of feel, and then you have Indiana Jones who kind of is a straight man. But he does produce a lot of funny and interesting things, but there are different character genres in some of those films.
