The Safdie Brothers are consider "film bro" filmmakers now?

Heard some tweets saying Good Time was for the Pulp Fiction/Whiplash crowd and Uncut Gems for the Drive/There Will be Blood/Shame crowd.

Quote from: The Playlist
When Showtime finally premiered “Happyish,” Steve Coogan had replaced Hoffman, while Ellen Barking replaced Parker Posey and Bradley Whitford joined the cast instead of Rhys Ifans. Even though Kathryn Hahn did stay on the show, John Cameron Mitchell didn’t return to direct, as Ken Kwapis took over directing the first episode. “Happyish” would only air 10 episodes before getting canceled by Showtime.

'Indiana Jones 5' Will Begin Filming This Summer, Harrison Ford Says
FEBRUARY 14, 2020 7:00AM by Ryan Parker

"I feel obliged to make sure our ambitions are as ambitious as they were when we started," the actor said in a separate interview about the upcoming installment in the action-adventure franchise.

Another installment to the Indiana Jones franchise is on its way, with Harrison Ford revealing that production will commence within months.

Ford dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show for an interview that will air Friday to promote his new film, Call of the Wild, and while there, he gave a few hints about the upcoming Indiana Jones film.

The 77-year-old actor told host DeGeneres that filming would begin late this summer.

"it's going to be fun," Ford said. "They are great fun to make."

The upcoming film's title has yet to be revealed.

The first three movies are considered to be some of the best action-adventure films of all-time. The fourth film, 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was not well received by fans for its story, not Ford's performance.

In a separate interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Ford said filming may begin as soon as April on Indiana Jones 5.

He also noted that he has enjoyed revisiting his classic characters, including Han Solo from Star Wars.

"When we have an opportunity to make another, it is because people have enjoyed them," Ford said in that interview. "I feel obliged to make sure our ambitions are as ambitious as they were when we started."

A release date for Indiana Jones 5 has not been announced.
