Harrison Ford says jokes about his character being previous had been faraway from the Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny screenplay.

The 80-year-old actor, who final performed the archaeologist in 2008’s Kingdom of the Crystal Skull mentioned modifications had been made to not confer with Jones’ age.

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Ford mentioned: “In [Dial of Destiny] there were a lot of old jokes in the script. We took them all out.”

Adding why the modifications had been made, Ford defined: “There is a moment where he observes himself in this situation and says, ‘What the f*** am I doing in here?’ But I hate what I call ‘talking about the story’.

“I need to see circumstances wherein the viewers will get an opportunity to expertise the story, to not be led by the nostril with highlights identified to them. I’d relatively create habits that’s the joke of age relatively than discuss it.”
