Phew! This is certainly some good news for Indy fans…
After those rumours of someone like Chris Pratt or Bradley Cooper picking up the fedora and bullwhip and replacing Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, Steven Spielberg has moved to confirm that there will only ever be one Dr. Henry Walton “Indiana” Jones, Jr.
Speaking to Screen Rant, Spielberg confirmed, “I don’t think anyone could replace Harrison as Indy, I don’t think that’s ever going to happen. It’s certainly not my intention to ever have another actor step into his shoes in the way there have been many actors that have played Spider-Man or Batman. There is only going to be one actor playing Indiana Jones and that’s Harrison Ford.”
When asked about why the director would want to do another Indy outing after the lukewarm response to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Spielberg added, “Because there are more adventures out there than films. So as long as there’s more adventures out there, I’ve got a bullwhip, a fedora, a leather jacket and a man on a horse who knows how to get the job done.”
Doubts were raised about whether Harrison Ford would star in any future Indy adventures given that the actor is currently 73-years-old and there are no concrete plans in place just yet. Luckily for fans of the franchise, it appears that the actor is in no danger of being replaced any time soon.
The last we’d heard of a new Indiana Jones movie was that one wouldn’t arrive for at least another 2 or 3 years at the earliest.
