Harrison Ford wouldn't mind another crack at the bullwhip.

He told the UK Telegraph that he'd be up for a fifth Indiana Jones film, despite that fact he's 71.

While out promoting his new film Paranoia, he said: "We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and OK for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass.

"To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do."

Ford's last outing as everyone's favourite archaeologist, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, played up his advancing age, although not everyone was happy with the results.

The film wasn't exactly beloved by fans or critics - nuking the fridge, anyone? - but it made almost $US800 million at the box office.

George Lucas is open to doing another movie and Steven Spielberg has just dropped out of what was supposed to be his next project, American Sniper, so Jones could be back sometime soon.

While he's waiting Ford will have to make do with appearing in The Expendables 3 alongside other grumpy action stars from the 1980s.
