Lucasfilm Has Apparently Set Its Sights On Chris Pratt as NEW Indiana Jones
Indiana Jones has become such an iconic character that its hard to imagine anyone filling Harrison Ford’s shoes. However, according to a recent piece in We Got This Covered, Lucasfilm may be looking at doing just that!.
This rumors aren’t new, they’ve been around for quite some time as Disney looks to expand many of their most popular franchises across theaters and at Disney+. Given the fact that Harrison Ford will be nearly 80 years old by the time Indiana Jones 5 hits theaters, it didn’t surprise fans when producer Frank Marshall confirmed that the latest film would be the last film in the franchise.
However, it know looks as if Disney and Lucasfilm may be having second thoughts when it comes to shelving the franchise. According to the piece in We Got This Covered, insider Daniel Richtman is claiming that Lucasfilm is considering Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt to fill Indy’s shoes.
This certainly isn’t a new rumor and it HAS ALREADY been debunked by Chris Pratt in the past. However, it looks like momentum is building to further the Indy franchise. According to Richtman, the film Indiana Jones 5, is being used by Disney and Lucasfilm to set off multiple spinoffs. With this in mind, Lucasfilm is apparently looking at Pratt to play a younger version of the character for some of these projects perhaps for a Disney+ series. It’s also being reported that an animated Indiana Jones series is also in the works.
One fan has already imaged what Pratt might look like in the role. As you can see from our Top image as well as the video below from Schmook:
