"I've always thought there was an opportunity to do another," said Ford.
"But I didn't want to do it without Steven. And I didn't want to do it without a really good script. And happily we're working on both. Steven is developing a script now that I think we're going to be very happy with."
LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy will produce the new "Indiana Jones".
