Shia LaBeouf was cast in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in the role of Henry "Mutt" Williams.

He was the son to both Marion Ravenwood and Indiana Jones. However, it seems as if Shia will not be returning for Indiana Jones 5.

This news was confirmed by the film's screenwriter David Koepp who spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the situation regarding Shia LaBeouf.

He confirmed that Shia LaBeouf is not returning in the new film. As for Harrison Ford, he is obviously returning in the main role as Indiana Jones.

Speaking further about the film, Koepp confirmed that they are still plugging away at the movie but they are happy with the script they have so far.

Much like the other films, the plot will involve the good guys trying to find a "precious artifact" of some kind.

They are hoping that they can start full production on the film after Steven Spielberg is finished working on The Post. Spielberg is back returning to direct the fifth movie.

Indiana Jones 5 already has a release date of July 10, 2020. The movie was delayed by a year as it was originally scheduled to be out in July 2019. There is plenty of time until they need to work on the movie anyway.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull came out in 2008 and many fans were unhappy with it. Despite still starring Harrison Ford and being directed by Steven Spielberg, the fourth movie is heavily disliked by a lot of people.

It will be interesting to see how this fifth movie turns out. There are high expectations since people don't want to be disappointed yet again.
