Will Chris Pratt be finally handed out the fedora and the bullwhip to be the next Indiana Jones?
According to Total Film via Den of Geek, there are no plans that Harrison Ford will be passing the torch of “Indiana Jones” to the “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor or any other actor for that matter.
The idea of a recast does not sit well with Hollywood bigwig Frank Marshall who has been attached as a producer in all the “Indiana Jones” movies.
“There are a lot of rumours,” Marshall said. He declared as he also worked with Pratt for Jurassic World.
“We haven’t even sat down to talk about Indy yet… at some point we’ll sit down. But there’s a bunch of people who could probably take the baton.” Marshall said.
However, the 69-year-old film producer made it clear that they are,“not doing the Bond thing where we’re going to call somebody else Indiana Jones… we have to figure this out.”
The 36-year-old Pratt has been widely held by speculations as the would-be successor to the now 73-year-old Ford to play the archaeologist. Ford has portrayed the fortune-hunting character since 1981 with “Raiders of the Lost Ark” to the most recent installment in 2008 with “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”
Despite this recent development, the franchise will have a new installment as cited by Daily Mail. It was especially that Disney has held the rights of the “Indiana Jones” franchise during its acquisition of LucasFilm in 2013. It paved the way for a mass of Star Wars stand-alone movies and installments. It has also been given much thought that with Ford’s current age the fifth outing for
“Indiana Jones” will be taking on a new lead character which will not be cut from the same cloth as what Ford had portrayed in the past four movies.
