The American Graffiti actor is currently starring in a television adaptation of the docuseries The Staircase; Harrison’s version has been in development since 2019.

The show, as originally reported by Variety, will focus on the trial of novelist Michael Peterson, who was charged with the murder of his wife Kathleen by pushing her down a flight of stairs in 2001.

The writer was initially convicted of murder before his charge was reduced to voluntary manslaughter.

The Staircase is the first time the actor will appear on a television show on a regular basis.

Harrison will also reprise his beloved role of Indiana Jones in the upcoming fifth film of the series, which has also been in development for many years.

The most recent entry in the action-adventure franchise came with 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which received mostly positive reviews from critics, but polarized the series’ fan base.

Discussions about a fifth film began shortly after the release of the fourth, although the untitled project soon entered development hell.

After several years of stalled activity, it was announced in 2016 that Ford had officially signed up to reprise his role and a new movie was expected to be released in 2019.

Getting into Character: The show, as originally reported by Variety, will focus on the trial of novelist Michael Peterson, who was charged with murdering his wife Kathleen by pushing her down a flight of stairs in 2001.

Co-creator of the series, Steven Spielberg, was expected to return to the director’s chair for the upcoming project, although he later stepped down.

Logan director James Mangold later took charge of the future film, with Steven and George Lucas remaining as executive producers.

Last May, the filmmaker sat down for an interview with ComicBook.com and while he could not give specifics about the new Indiana Jones movie, he noted that he would try to put an “emotional center” at the core of the film.

“I’m always trying to find an emotional center to operate from … I think the most important thing, at a time when franchises have become a commodity, serve the same thing again,” James said.

The 57-year-old also spoke about what working on a franchise required of him as a director and how he would try to implement that in his films.

Specifically, James noted that he should try to “ push something to a new place, while also remembering the main reasons everyone was together. ”
