To get Harrison Ford back for the fourth Indiana Jones movie, Paramount Pictures agreed to a deal that split a large portion of the film’s earnings between him, director Steven Spielberg, and producer George Lucas. That deal gave Ford a $65 million paycheck, a number he’s looking to top with presumably his last outing as the titular archaeologist in the yet-to-be-titled sequel set to be released on July 29th, 2022.

Released 19 years after the third Indiana Jones movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull grossed a whopping $791 million at the worldwide box office against a production budget of $185 million.
