Following a lengthy development, Variety reports franchise director Steven Spielberg will no longer direct the upcoming Indiana Jones 5 from Disney. This marks the first time another filmmaker will take the reigns on an Indiana Jones film in the franchise’s lengthy 39-year history.

While sources have yet to confirm if a deal has been reached, it appears the studio is eyeing Ford V Ferrari director James Mangold to take Spielberg’s place. This is not the first time Mangold has been called in to direct a franchise film; he joined 20th Century Fox’s Wolverine series in 2011 to direct the namesake sequel to 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Mangold then stuck around to write, direct and produce the Academy Award-nominated Logan.

Although sources confirm that Spielberg will stay on as an executive producer and will remain hands-on throughout production, someone close to the legendary director has stated that Spielberg’s decision to step down from directorial duties centers on giving a fresh perspective of Indiana for a new generation. Despite that, leading man Harrison Ford is still attached to the film, stating recently that he was “going to start doing Indiana Jones in about two months” on CBS Sunday Morning.
