Fleabag writer and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been cast in Indiana Jones 5 in a as yet unspecified role opposite Harrison Ford.

"I'm thrilled to be starting a new adventure, collaborating with a dream team of all-time great filmmakers," said director James Mangold, who recently took over from Steven Spielberg to direct the latest instalment in the long-running franchise.

"Steven, Harrison, Kathy, Frank, and John are all artistic heroes of mine," he added.

"When you add Phoebe, a dazzling actor, brilliant creative voice and the chemistry she will undoubtedly bring to our set, I can’t help but feel as lucky as Indiana Jones himself."

Composer John Williams will return to score the new movie, which is expected to be released in July next year, over forty years after he wrote the music for Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will be producing Indiana Jones 5, while Spielberg will also remain on board as an executive producer. Jonathan Kasdan has written the screenplay for the film.
