HE’S beaten Nazis in Raiders Of The Lost Ark and conquered the Temple Of Doom.
But Indiana Jones is set for his greatest challenge yet – shooting a new film at what experts say is Britain’s most haunted castle.
Work on the movie, starring Harrison Ford, begins next week at Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland, where crew members are transfixed by the prospect of meeting the ghostly Pink Lady, who is said to patrol the corridors.
According to legend, she flung herself off the battlements in the Middle Ages after her lover left her for a rival, and she still haunts the castle.
Some of the film crew preparing for the shoot are already spooked out, claiming they have encountered unpleasant sensations during set visits as they plan the scenes.
An insider told me: “It sounds silly but before filming even starts, all any of us are talking about is the ghost. It’s a seriously creepy place.
“A surprising number of the crew really believe in this stuff and it’s rattled everyone. A number of the team are reluctant to even go into the oldest part of the castle, it’s really shaken them up.
“Aside from the ghosts, it’s a huge production and great news for the British film industry, which has been on its knees for 18 months. It’s great to see such a huge blockbuster getting under way.
“It’s a major priority for the studio so it needs to get going – ghosts or not.
"The team will have to overcome it, even if some of them want to avoid certain places.”
Harrison Ford reprises his role in the new instalment of the Steven Spielberg and George Lucas film franchise, which was last played out in 2008’s Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.
Other big names in the as-yet-untitled new instalment include Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen – although most details have so far been kept tightly under wraps.
Director James Mangold, who previously helmed X-Men spin-offs Wolverine and Logan, will oversee the movie.
Here’s hoping they can all get over the haunting horror of ghosts and get it shot without sprinting away in terror.
