Harrison Ford has revealed filming on the fifth Indiana Jones movie may begin this summer.

The Hollywood star, 77, confirmed he will pick up his whip and don the famous fedora to play the beloved archaeologist once more.

During an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres's chat show, Ford said: "It's going to be fun. They are great fun to make."

He said filming is set to start in the summer.

The first three Indiana Jones films - Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981), Temple Of Doom (1984) and The Last Crusade (1989) - are well-loved classic films.

Ford returned to the role for 2008's Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, which is not as revered.

In a separate interview with CBS, Ford said filming on the new Indiana Jones movie could begin as soon as April.

And he admitted to enjoying 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 told Sunday Morning.

"I feel obliged to make sure our ambitions are as ambitious as they were when we started."

A release date for the fifth Indiana Jones film has not been announced.

Ford's latest film is the Disney adventure The Call Of The Wild.
