MOSCOW, 26 Apr. Director James Mangold has revealed the details of Harrison Ford's “rejuvenation” for Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Fate, GamesRadar writes citing an interview in Total Film Magazine.
According to the director, the film opens with a 25-minute flashback. Events in it develop in 1944. The hero is 35 years old. And he finds himself in a castle full of Nazis.
For the scenes, the 79-year-old Ford was filmed with many special marks in the form of dots on his face. Such technology is widely used by cinema. However, the production of the fifth “Indiana Jones” is still different from many other examples of “rejuvenation” in the frame. After all, there is a video where the actor plays the same role when he was 30-40 years old.
“We had hundreds of hours of close-ups, mid-shots and long shots of him in various lighting conditions,” Mangold elaborates.
The director says the technology allowed him to focus on filming and save time. The result of “rejuvenation” was ready in a couple of days after working on the scene.
“Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Fate” is the final part of the saga about the archaeologist-explorer. In addition to Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, Mads Mikkelsen and others starred in the film.
It was previously reported that the tape will be presented at the Cannes Film Festival.
