Robert Pattinson As Indiana Jones?
While a report by The Daily Star says that Rob is the front runner, HollywoodLife.com can tell you that he’s just one of many options — and that fans aren’t thrilled about the pick.
“Disney really wants more Indiana Jones and they will definitely do it,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Robert Pattinson is one of many considered for the role but in no way is he the number one choice. He is far down the list and the chance of him becoming Indiana Jones is slim to none and slim just left town.”
In March they were also thinking about casting Bradley Cooper as the new Indiana, so who knows who will be the choice.
Regardless, fans are completely shocked that Rob would even be an option! Read them below and then let us know — do you think Rob should be the new Indiana Jones?
