It’s confirmed! A new ‘Indiana Jones’ film is officially in the works at Disney, which means an announcement on who will play the world’s most badass paleontologist is soon to follow!
Following tons of rumors (and prayers!), it has now been confirmed that a brand new Indiana Jones sequel is officially happening. A ton of details are still up in the air, though, including which talented dude will step into the legendary title role. However, before the sequel news was even solidified, one name was floating around everyone’s minds: Chris Pratt! So, is there any truth to the theory that the Guardians of the Galaxy star could be gearing up to star in the film?
‘Indiana Jones’ Sequel Confirmed
It had been discussed but now, thanks to the president of Lucasfilm, we know for sure that the future holds a brand new Indiana Jones movie. Speaking to Vanity Fair, Kathleen Kennedy said that a sequel “will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.”
Okay so we’re a long way off, it seems, but talking about it is better than nothing!
Is Chris Pratt The New Indiana Jones?
So, about that Chris Pratt-starring rumor.
As Kathleen said, the film is still in very, very early stages, and no casting will be announced for a little while, however, Disney definitely has a list of potential dudes to take on the all important role of Indiana Jones himself and Chris is at the top of it, according to Deadline.
Chris shouldn’t dust off his whip just yet though. Also rumored to possibly step into the role is Bradley Cooper according to Latino-Review, not to mention the original Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford, who told The Hollywood Reporter in 2013 that reprising the role himself would be “perfectly appropriate and okay.”
