Chris Pratt says being Indy would be awesome; Matt Vaughn is down to direct

02.09.2015

I'd say the bulk of you felt okay with the idea of Chris Pratt replacing Indiana Jones, and why not? The man has the looks and the acting chops, as well as the charisma to inhabit such a well-loved character. Harrison Ford is going to be replaced inevitably, so it seems we could do much worse than Star-Lord. Now before we get ahead of ourselves, it's more than possible that Pratt taking up the whip may just be a fun rumor for the time being, but how does HE feel about it? Just recently the man received the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year honor at Harvard University and when asked whether or not he'd be down for playing Indy, he stated that it would be an "awesome opportunity." Far from a confirmation, but still noteworthy that the man would be up to the task.

Meanwhile, Matthew Vaughn has been talking up his latest film, THE KINGSMAN, which hits this Friday. While FIFTY SHADES is certainly poised to take the top spot as far as box office is concerned, THE KINGSMAN has been bringing in the solid reviews (check out ours here). When Vaughn was discussing some influences on his career, the topic of Indiana Jones and Star Wars came up. You can check out what he had to say on those two below:

Matthew Vaughn on directing an Indiana Jones or Star Wars film:

If someone offered me Star Wars or Indiana Jones I would be very interested. When you’re the director, you just don’t know. Something clicks and you go, 'Yup, I wanna go make that story,' so never say, 'never,' to anything but right now I’m in the world of Kingsman so it’s really hard to think about anything else.

If you had asked me 10 years ago, I would have told you that the Ford/Spielberg/Lucas trifecta of Indiana Jones creation should not be messed with. Nowadays, CRYSTAL SKULL gives me more nightmares than the Star Wars prequels and I'm more than okay with other talent coming on-board to deliver some fresh ideas. We'll always have the classic Indy trilogy and given Vaughn's talent in assembling a great cast and shooting fun action sequences, having him helm an Indy flick doesn't seem too far-fetched. We'll have to wait and see who Disney has in mind!

You can check out Chris Pratt next in JURASSIC WORLD, which hits on June 12, 2015.

Yeah man especially since Temple of doom was a prequel so it would make sense Pratt as Indy's son, is older than Shia as Mutt. I would prefer Mutt die at the beginning in an opening scene with the main baddie and causing Indy to track down his killer coming across his other son Pratt (Illinois Jones ha ha).

Family Time

I will say it again, Pratt taking over the fedora as his son (the love child of Indy and Willie Scott) and Harrison moving aside to the fatherly role (like Connery from Crusade) would be the logical and ideal way to carry on the franchise. We need lost temples, real stunts without the use of CGI, and this time for the creepy crawly scene (I.E. snakes, rats, bugs, ants) use piranhas in the jungle. As for Vaughn, hell no! His style is not conducive to Indy folklore. He is too clean and modern

His style is not conducive to Indy folklore. He is too clean and modern with quick cuts and over stylized action. You need a director that can use the scenery to create atmosphere and it should feel old fashioned and gritty like watching a movie-reel at school. I think Quentin Tarantino would be an interesting choice for this or the Cohen brothers with Spielberg acting as producer. I know Harrison will always be Indy, but there is room for more adventures if we keep it family oriented and Pratt has similar appeal and gravitas to act as his son. If not him how about the other three Chris's; Hemsworth, Evans, Pine, they all could work.

Cool combo, but..

While I love both Vaughn and Pratt, I agree with people saying an original character/story would be better. I think they would both bring their best to any franchise.. I'd hate to see them criticized simply because they're being compared to such a beloved property

The Indiana Jones series to me is like the Godfather series. Nobody ever talks about rebooting Godfather (yet, give it a few years, lol). Despite Godfather 3 being a disappointment, everyone knows you can't match the combination of Coppola and Pacino in their prime. It's the same with Spielberg and Ford for Indy. Anyone else trying to play Indy, no matter how good an actor, would just feel like SNL sketch of the character.

Yeah, but Indy is designed to be a serialized pulp adventure character. He's dyed-in-the-wool that way. In theory, you could make a million stand-alone adventures.

The Godfather Trilogy is a contained story about the rise and fall of Michael Corleone. It's about change, it's about his life.

Indiana Jones is about a series of non-connected adventures. They're not comparable.

Right, i hate reboots. King Kong was terrible, The Dark Knight was terrible, Man of Steel, Xmen First Class, True Grit, Skyfall, Dredd 3D, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Departed, Scarface, A Fist Full of Dollars, and Star Trek are all bad movies that could never live up to their original. Im glad each one is universally hated and made no money. Yet still some reason Hollywood insists on making them.

Harrison Ford is the only Indiana Jones, just like Sean Connery is the only James Bond and William Hartnell is the only Doctor.

I'm not so much against Pratt, or even Vaughn (not my first choice, but okay) as I am the whole reboot idea. Indy's best days ARE behind him, just like Ford. But if Ford still wanted to do it, which he did last time he was asked, I'd be for it. He remains the ONE good thing about Crystal Skull. Indiana Jones was in that movie, whether that movie belonged in the canon or not. I know because I saw him there. I don't know WHAT happened to Marion, because she did some things that felt just plain

I don't know WHAT happened to Marion, because she did some things that felt just plain wrong, but Indy was there to chide her for it (even Indiana Jones wouldn't drive a jeep into a river on purpose, that's just dumb).

Anyway, if they're looking at other directors (they haven't approached Vaughn, most likely, but he is a hot director), then it's already easier to digest that a different guy would be playing the archaeologist. The fact that Pratt is actually younger than Ford was when he did Raiders of the Lost Ark is the other thing that makes me feel less bad about this. So, you know, whatever.

Pratt as Indy....Ummmm okay? Vaughn directing....Hell no!

If it comes down to someone else playing Indy, which I don't feel cool with, I could learn to accept Pratt in the role. Pratt needs more roles first before casting him as one of cinema's most beloved heroes.
What I am not down with is Matthew Vaughn directing. Look at his style compared to Spielberg's, he's the WRONG director! You'd have fast tracking panning shots all over the place, with models in lingerie throwing themselves at Indy. An Indiana Jones sequel MUST keep the style as the

The only thing separating Indiana Jones from James Bond is that Bond forever lives in the present day, while Indiana Jones forever lives in the 1930s (1920s-1940s). The same thing can work. James Bond has always been a character with a past. Several movies make note of him growing up and always being James Bond. The character has gotten married, retired, and done other stuff.

You are right that, in generic terms, they occupy a similar arena. But I rather assumed you were referring to the revolving-door for Bond. And I'm saying when the same person originates a role, and goes on to play it for thirty-odd years, it can be harder for people to accept anyone else in that role. Pratt is the closest thing I've seen yet, but then again I wasn't looking for someone to fill Ford's shoes. I'm still not, because he's the most consistent part of the franchise.

and you're right, had that movie been any good.

people are un-easy with a new Indiana Jones because the last one was so bad. People see remake or reboot and instantly think it's a bad idea without giving it a chance. People forget that Batman Begins was a reboot, Star Trek, and Planet of the Apes. It can be done right.

I'm not sure of a remake either. But if they get the right guys to do it... And Chris Pratt is perfect for Indy. Matt Vaugn is ok, could be worse in my opinion

You guys need to get people working over the weekend.

This news has been chucking about for a few days now.
Face facts, it is going to happen one day and given Shia Lebouf pretty much screwed his chances of moving things on another actor for Indy is the logical step.
Pratt and Vaughn would be great... I dunno. Just feels too soon.

I don't want to be negative, but I doubt we'd ever get a new Indana Jones movie that is better than Chrystal Skull.
Indy is not James Bond. It's more like Back to the Future: it was great because those movies made in the '80s were great. It's cinema magic. You can not replicate it.

Get use to it, Hollywood has been rehashing ideas for literally a hundred years.

look at Avatar, everyone said it was Pocahontas. But people seem to forget that Pocahontas was actually Romeo and Juliet. And even fewer people know that Romeo and Juliet was a rehash of Romeus and Juliet, an Italian poem. Everyone steals each others ideas, it's called art.

Your post explains precisely why Indiana Jones should NOT be rebooted. Hollywood has been re-using the same concepts for years but before, it tried to give a new take on the same ideas by creating new characters and new franchises. Lucas being inspired by b-movies from the 40s is not the same as Disney simply rebooting the franchise because the brand sell. It's not called art, it's called business.

Matthew Vaughn + Chris Pratt for Indiana Jones?

I think that would work very well.

And yes, Indiana Jones will be rebooted. Harrison Ford was brilliant in the role, but he's past 70 - you won't see him in many fistfights. Indiana Jones is too much of a cash cow for DIsney not to reboot, and Chris Pratt is one of the best choices I've seen for the role. Failing that, Chris Evans would be solid, too.

It was inevitable

When Disney spent $4 billion dollars to gain the rights to everything under Lucas' watchful eye, a reboot of Indiana Jones was a given. I, like most, am completely opposed to the idea of rebooting the beloved character, but if it were to happen, Pratt would definitely be the guy to do it. Now, if Vaughn is interested, so be it, but I'd much prefer him directing a Star Wars spin-off over this. Let Spielberg direct the reboot.

There is absolutely no need to reboot Indiana Jones

George Lucas did not invent the treasure hunting concept any more than he invented the Nazis. He was inspired by movies that he saw in his youth and in return, inspired many other projects himself (the Mummy movie franchise, the video games Tomb Raider & Uncharted...).

What made the Indiana Jones franchise distinctive wasn't the concept itself but what Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford brought to it. If you want to make a treasure hunting franchise around Chris Pratt, create a new

And Vaughn or whoever directs won't have to be compared to Spielberg either, which is an aspect many people overlook.

Bullshit

Harrison Ford is Indiana Jones and will remain so until he decides to vacate the role that he helped create from the ground up. All this talk about new actors taking over the role is bullshit until Disney releases a statement as to its plans for the future of the Indiana Jones franchise. And Disney is not stupid. They will not take away Indy from Harrison Ford so long as he can and is willing to play the part.

Could Chris Pratt play a swashbuckling archeologist? Absolutely. But it

You can throw a new actor into the role and call it Indiana Jones, but it is a fool's errand because unlike James Bond or Batman it was Ford who made Indiana Jones popular not the other way around. And unlike Bond and Batman there is no literary pretext for Indy. The world's most famous archeologist was built by Ford for the silver screen and Disney should roll cameras on Indy 5 soon because once Harrison is done, so is Indiana.

i've met more than a few people outwardly against another Indiana Jones movie. Why? Really only Raiders and Last Crusade were any good, the other 2 aren't sacred. Indiana Jones is poised to become the American James Bond. A series of films where our hero goes on non-sequential adventures. None of the movies are really sequels or prequels, they are just him doing his thing. Every few years replace the actor and continue on.

None of the movies are really sequels or prequels, they are just him doing his thing. Every few years replace the actor and continue on. James Bond has had his ups an downs over the years, but the franchise is still going strong, and we are all excited for another Bond film. Why can't Indiana Jones be the same way? Harrison Ford is great, he is the Sean Connery of this franchise. Does that mean Roger Moore or Pierce Brosman were bad Bonds? No. There have been many Doctors, each different but none of them really bad. It's time to pass the baton to a new actor for Indy.

Just remember a few things.
1. keep him set in the 1920s-1940s
2. Whip, hat, jacket
3. No recurring sidekicks. There can be a Q and M, but not steady GF and dont turn this into a buddy franchise. Indy isn't known for having a side kick

Temple of Doom wasn't that great. Really it was Short Round and Willy that dragged that movie down. It wouldve been so much better if it were just Indiana Jones. Willy was put in to be the stereotype damsel in distress, and Short Round was comic relief. Watching the movie over it just has too many moments that i couldnt take seriously.

Watch TGWTG review it, it's pretty funny and insightful. It's not nearly as bad as Crystal Skull, but at the same time it's not the classic that Raiders is.

Indy isn't known for having sidekicks? Then what would you call Sallah, Shortround, Mac, his father Professor Jones, and even to some degree Marcus Brody. Indy always has sidekicks that aid or assist in some way he is just counted on himself to get the job done. As for the whip, hat, and jacket if they forget those it must not be an Indy film. And Temple of Doom is awesome with one of the most Iconic Indy shots of him on a rope bridge gripping a sword and his tote with priceless artifacts.
