Steven Spielberg is convinced Harrison Ford's advancing age won't be a barrier to the upcoming Indiana Jones sequel. The Oscar-winning moviemaker is teaming up with pal George Lucas to make the new adventure flick - over 20 years after the franchise began in 1981 with Raiders Of The Lost Ark and over ten years since the last flick, The Last Crusade (1989). By the time the movie hits theaters in 2005, Ford - who was 38 when the first movie was made - will be 63, but Spielberg isn't worried about the star reprising the swashbuckling role; he has some decidedly low-tech plans to conceal Harrison's advancing years. Spielberg says, "Harrison won't act his age: he'll run: he'll swing, he'll leap, he'll fight. None of that's gonna change. He might 'ooh' and 'aah' a bit more and there might be a few more scenes where he's having Vicks Vapor Rub applied to all the sore spots."
