Mads Mikkelsen's career is going up and up at the moment. He is due to play Grindelwald in 'Fantastic Beasts 3', having replaced Johnny Depp. He is also getting rave reviews for his performance in the Oscar-nominated Danish film 'Another Round'.
Mads Mikkelsen now becomes the latest star to join the cast of the fifth 'Indiana Jones' installment.
Harrison Ford returns as the titular explorer and archaeologist.
It emerged last week that 'Fleabag' creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge will play the female lead.
James Mangold ('Logan', 'Ford v Ferrari') is taking over directing reins from Steven Spielberg.
Spielberg will still serve as a producer and is said to be very much involved in various elements of the film.
Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel are also producing.
John Williams is returning as composer, having worked on the score for every film in the franchise thus far.
They're hoping to start filming in summer.
We've no plot details yet and the role Mads Mikkelsen will play is a mystery (we're guessing, and this is just a guess now, he may be the villain).
Mangold is currently meeting with other talent to fill other roles.
Deadline broke the news of Mikkelsen's casting.
'Indiana Jones 5' is set to swing into cinemas on July 29, 2022.
