Just a rumor at this point, but...
Disney Eyeing Chris Pratt For Indiana Jones Revival
Wouldn't mind Chris Pratt being Indy, but would love for it to be played were he took over the adventures for Indy some how. If its a reboot, fine put Pratt as Indy, but if its a squeal, make Pratt a son/student of Indy, not make him Indy.
they already blew the son angle on Shia. I've got no prob with him as Indy... they've been doing it with Bond and Batman and pretty much every serialized comic book-ish character. At least this casting I could see working if they decided to go this route, as opposed to Batfleck or Hairdo like they did with Spidey.
Oh dear lord no. He was OK as the son but playing the title character of Indy? He doesn't even come close to fitting the bill...of Indy's hat. He doesn't have the stature or charm of Ford. Plus for franchise longevity sake, it would probably be a smart thing to find an actor more mentally stable.
Imagine only knowing Sean Connery as Bond for 5 movies and then all of a sudden... George Lazenby??? It all worked out in the end, but it is a similar situation.
do you think Pratt is a Lazenby? I feel like a Shia Indy movie would have been more Lazenby-ish. I'm actually stunned at how good that casting may be with Pratt replacing a legend like Ford.
i was talking about Pratt as Indy and that they already blew the son angle with Shia.
Deadline is told that George Lucas is not involved. Typically in the past, prior to the Disney purchase of Lucasfilm, these Indiana Jones titles wouldn’t move forward in production unless Lucas and Spielberg saw eye to eye on the script and all elements. That’s one of the reasons why there’s always been a gap between sequels.
Man. I always wondered why the original film (1981) didn't take off and spawn a bunch of sequels (spaced much closer together than 1984, 1989, and 2008). Not complaining about the sequels (especially Temple and Crusade), just a fan of the character and followed him on TV and in comics, etc. and always wanted to see more Indy films. There were plenty of adventures that could have been translated to the big screen.
I just hope its not so CGIed like the last one.
