Rumor: Disney might reboot Indiana Jones with new actor as Indy

Mar. 26, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

When Disney acquired the full rights to Indiana Jones last year, many wondered what the studio was going to do with the franchise. Soon after Disney obtained the rights, chairman Alan Horn said it would be at least two to three years before we see a new Indy movie. Harrison Ford has said he'd like to play the character again, but is Disney looking to move forward with a new Indiana Jones flick without Ford?

It looks that way, according to a new report from Latino-Review. Sources have told the site Disney still wants to make INDIANA JONES 5 with Harrison Ford, but if they can't land the actor and begin work on the project by a certain date, they are prepared to recast Indy for a new trilogy.

Disney is apparently eyeing several actors to potentially replace Harrison Ford as Indy, and sources say Bradley Cooper is at the top of the list. Latino-Review's sources also say Frank Darabont may have pitched an idea for the next direction to take with the franchise. It would be kind of funny if Darabont ended up being attached to a new Indiana Jones movie since George Lucas rejected the script he wrote in 2002 for INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL.

I know for some Harrison Ford is Indiana Jones, but the actor isn't as young as he use to be, and maybe it is time for another actor to wear the fedora. This is just a rumor though, and even if it is true right now, Disney's plans could always change. Personally I hope we do get one more movie with Harrison Ford. If Disney wants to reboot the franchise after that, so be it, but I really don't want INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL to be the last Indy adventure starring Harrison Ford.

Extra Tidbit: Which would you rather see: INDIANA JONES 5 with Harrison Ford, or a new trilogy with a different actor as Indy?

This topic pushed me over the edge from visitor to submission. I have a childhood affinity for Indy. I was practically raised by watching [link] in the back of my parents owned video store. There is only one Indiana Jones and that is Mr. Ford. That being said, the character is too much fun to give up on, so a continuation is in order, it just has to be done right. First, let Mr. Ford pass the buck to a protege whether that be a favorite student or a forgotten son like the love child of Willie

Next, get back to Indy inspired roots by having NO CGI stunts only the real deal, some artifact with paranormal religious overtones to chase, and more booby traps, icky creature features (I vote piranhas!) and Nazi bad guys.

I'm okay with this. I'm also open to the possibility of it being a prequel before Temple of Doom, but set well after Young Indiana Jones ended. As for having Harrison Ford back in action, well... I'm open for that too. We still don't know how he later got that eyepatch.

Don't let the Crystal Skull be the last Harrison Ford Indy, please

Do one more with Harrison Ford and then have him pass the torch to a younger adventurer. He could still be involved as a mentor for the new Indy.

why not do both?

Why not recast indy for 1930's nazi adventures and finish off the old fart trilogy with ford? Everyone wins, everyone gets what they want. Except the 'holes that don't want anything ever again, in which case ya'll can go on bitching and no one really gives a shit anywhere. Including your own mom.

Why Indy isn't Bond

I've seen a lot of posts comparing Indy to Bond, but nobody addresses the Elephant in the room. The Indiana Jones films have always been period movies, while Bond takes place in modern times. So if you make more Indy films, you have 2 options. 1 is to always set them in the 30's/40's where Indy fits best as a character, but that will just mess with continuity and feel like a repeat of the original films (like if every Bond film was always in the 60s). Your second option is to move Indy to the

Your second option is to move Indy to the present day (or I guess the 70's is the next step), in which case you'll get movies like Indy and the Disco Ball of Death. None of these options seems like a good idea to me, so I say do 1 more with Ford and be done with it.

I disagree. Maybe Indy isnt Bond, but he could be! Thats the one thing that the Bond movies are great at, and why we can basically always count on another Bond movie coming. Maybe Bond is always technically modern, but now his movies arent. We have black and white 60's Bond, 70's Bond, etc. I love Harrison Ford, but these days, he just looks flat tired and energy-less in his roles. Bring in a fresh face, set the time period whenever you want, bring in new girls, new stories, and let Indy

I'm okay with this

There had to come a day when Harrison Ford would pass the mantle to a younger actor to take the reigns of the franchise, I'm just glad it's not Shia LaBeouf. Cooper has the great mix of charm and intellect commonly associated with Dr. Jones which makes it seem very plausible for him to take the mantle from Ford. It's just sad that the last time we saw Ford as Indy was in a terrible movie.

I'm confused. Indiana Jones needs the Bond treatment? Time to start fresh with a young Indy? Go back and watch Young Indiana Jones if you really need that. I'll be the first to say my reaction is purely selfish because I have never had ANY interest in seeing someone else play Indiana Jones. Cooper's got the attitude (but as a two-time Oscar-nominee, he might decide it's beneath him, as he should), Urban, when using an American accent, sounds reasonably Fordian, but it's a personal deal-breaker.

The best thing about Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was Ford's performance. The movie, though mostly lackluster, was a sizable success at the box-office. Unlike Bond part of Indiana Jones is that he's not some immortal super-hero, he's a guy with insecurities who isn't as young as he once was (even in Raiders of the Lost Ark he made that clear).

Now, I'm not saying Disney can NEVER make another Indiana Jones movie without him. And for that matter, labeling it a reboot would calm me down because then I could just check it off as a movie I didn't care to partake of at all. Even at the worst of times Indiana Jones has remained with the same creative team up until Disney bought it. With Lucas retired, two critical parts of the trifecta still remain. Maybe they don't want a part of it. But at least give them a chance to bow out before shopping around for someone new to take their places.

HARRISON FORD IS INDY.... but

Harrison Ford IS Indiana Jones there is nothing that can be said or done that can change that. I can see why they'd want to continue with the series after Harrison Ford hangs up the whip and fedora even though it would take lot of convincing on their end for fans to accept a new Indiana Jones. I will say that if they were to do that, they'd be better of with an unknown. Harrison Ford got his start in acting as a carpenter and from what i understand had been on the set of American Grafitti,

Harrison Ford got his start in acting as a carpenter and from what i understand had been on the set of American Grafitti, hitting it off with George Lucas and in turn eventually Spielberg. But yeah, having someone starting out as Indy with no baggage behind him is their best bet where they can't look at the character and say 'that is Tom Cruise playing as Indiana Jones'. If anything get someone like Josh Hartnet or Keith Urban who aren't as recognized and could pull off the role.

Urban or Cooper would be good picks if this happened.

I've been saying they should do this for years even before Crystal Skull. Yeah its not a popular idea because we all have to hand over our childhood memories to a new generation but honestly I'd rather see a young, tenacious, nazi fighting archeologist wooing women amidst daring stunts than us all clinging on to a marginally interested senior citizen (whom I love!) meandering his way through an adventure and coming to terms with the changin' times. Stay loyal to the character not the actor! I

As long as it is a reboot and not a remake. Indiana Jones was always meant to be James Bond for Spielberg. Continue the adventures (remember, the original Indiana Jones films aren't linear in time) , no fucking origin story, no remake, and it'll work.

A lot of options:
A new one with a younger Indy and Ford as the older one (played like Connery did- "JUNIOR!")- dies in end though
A whole reboot with new actors
An Uncharted movie instead
No more Mummy movies either

For everyone who says that Hollywood needs to do something new: they try, and usually they bomb. Indy set the bar, and every adventure movie that comes afterwards is considered an "Indy knockoff", much like how most spy movies that come out are considered Bond knockoffs, with the exception of a few. While I'd love to see Ford end his Indy reign on a better note than Crystal Skull, you cant help but accept that it's just not that cool to see a 70 year old Indy, and his best adventures wouldve

I'm entirely uninterested in seeing the role recast. I'd rather see an Indy 5 and let the character retire when Ford is done with him. Maybe an animated series ala the Clone Wars, but that's it.

How about coming up with a new character instead? Is that too much to ask of Hollywood these days?

You know what...

There are few people in this world who are as big of an Indy fan as I am (Raiders is my #1 favorite movie ever) so when I say I'm actually fine with this, you can take that to the bank. Indiana Jones is a character that deserves to have more epic adventures and I actually think that the rumored choice being Bradley Cooper could actually do a terrific job. As much as I love Ford, I think it's time to start fresh with a young Indy.

Set the 5th film in the 70's, make Indy out of his element in the age of disco, and then turn it over to an actor who can carry the franchise on through the 80's, 90's etc.
Bradley Cooper isn't an awful choice, but not my favorite. Tom Hardy would be cool, Joseph Gordon Levit would also be cool. Robert Downy Jr. would be bad ass. If it has to happen, then just do it right and do right by the fan base.

Absolutely F*CK no. You can NOT separate the character from the actor. Even George Lucas knew that! He said if he wanted to make a movie about Mutt Williams (as if it would ever happen at this point...), he would call it MUTT WILLIAMS, not Indiana Jones.

This is a rumor. Let it stay as such.

One more for Ford then bring on Cooper or someone else. There's no way Ford had any more in him past Indy 5. It's time to move on. Also reboot is fine with new adventures just don't remake the previous 4.

Everyone knew that this would eventually happen.
For me Harrison Ford is Indiana Jones, and it will be very difficult to associate the character with other actor. But he's 72 year old, and it's going to be very hard for him to play the character with the same energy. If they do it fast enough I'd still go for one final adventure with Ford. I don't want him to leave the character with that Crystal Skull crap.

This is a good thing as long as it doesn't suck. The first film will set the tone and we'll know if it's kiddy trash (KoCS) or more serious shit like that both kids and adults can enjoy like RoLA or TLC.

While Indy is such an iconic character and we all give thanks to Ford to bringing him to life in a way no other actor could I don't think Indy should "die" with Harrison Ford. The character and his adventures to me is bigger then just one actor. Stories will always be told so why shouldn't they continue with a new actor. I'm telling myself "blasphemy" to even suggesting it but maybe this is a sign of a grow up nerd.

Face it folks, Disney didn't buy up the rights to Indy for the DVD sales or even a one-off with Harrison Ford pushing 80. There's going to be a reboot.

Now it might be cool to tell a story over multiple timelines like 'Days of Future Past' is set to do and Star Trek did with Spock. Some quest Indy began in his 20s but completes 50 years later. 'The Last Crusade' did this successfully with young Indy/Harrison Ford Indy and the Cross of Coronado. Alas we never got to see River Phoenix pick

All of this of course depends on an inspired script and a proper director who'll keep the test-marketing asswipes at bay.

Karl Urban. I'd also be game for a film that alternates between timelines Godfather II style, with a story featuring an older Indy returning to a discovery he made as a younger man, that adventure unfolding parallel to the "modern-day" one and taking on new significance for him later.

I understand wanting to restart this franchise eventually, but I strongly agree with people wanting at least one more with Harrison Ford before that happens. He shouldn't go out with Crystal Skull. I'm alright with the idea of Bradley Cooper. I don't love it. But I'm alright with it.

About Time...

Oddly enough I spoke about Cooper being an Indy replacement on this very website about 2 years ago... I have thought its time to pass the torch to a younger actor for a while. It worked for The Young Adventures of Indiana Jones series and it can work for a reboot. Involve Harrison in it and have him tell stories about his younger years and it could work. Do you really want to see the further adventures of Mutt? I dident think so...

Karl Urban

Just cast him and go ahead.
No need to let a good franchise fade away just because the former star got too old. Bond hat several incarnations - that could work for Indy too

I wouldn't want to see Bradley Cooper play Indiana Jones. His career is on fire right now with American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, and The Place Beyond The Pines, etc and I would hate to see him tied down to a franchise that's going to be rebooted.

Cooper's career is TOO good for him right now to do something like this. I'd rather see him work on more dramas with some great directors; for instance he's working with Eastwood right now on American Sniper which should be all sorts of

Recasting seems like a smart move as Ford is too old for energetic action movies.
Having said that I almost feel sorry for whoever does get cast because unless they're absolutely brilliant they're going to get slated.
Would it be too confusing if Ford played Henry Jones to a new Indiana?

Spielberg initially wanted to make a James Bond movie - and that evolved into Raiders. I'm personally all for treating Indiana more like Bond - not being afraid to recast. And that's what they should do - recast, NOT reboot. Just continue the adventures with a new actor. It works for Bond, it could work here. I love Ford as much as anyone else, he IS Indiana Jones, but the fact is he's getting older and I'd love to see more Jones Adventures. Also by recasting & not passing the torch to a new

Also by recasting & not passing the torch to a new actor allows them to continue to keep it in the right era, instead of having to have the movies take place later in time. I personally think all the Jones movies need to take place in the 30s/40s to keep that serial charm about them
PS - sounds like this could be a good "cast this" who could play Indiana

The James Bond or Batman approach of using different actors is fine by me. Just don't remake any of the existing Indiana Jones movies. Do new adventures but set in the 1920/30/40s. We already have present day "Indiana Jones-ish" movies.

I would love to see another Indy with Harrison Ford but recasting will be a tough pill to swallow. Ford MADE Indy and it would be really hard to replace him.

Nathan Fillion!

(that joke never gets old)

With Harrison Ford past the big 70, it's inevitable that they have to recast the character. The major problem is that there aren't that many actors who spring to mind as being able to carry that swashbuckling with a hint of comedy that Ford did so well. I really can't see Bradley Cooper in the role: he seems like too much of a boy trying to be a man.

If Colin Farrell kept his nose out of the booze, he'd make a solid Indiana Jones.

Everyone will revolt and hate this more than I4

This is just sad news. It is like casting new people to play Luke, Han and Leia. They are such iconic characters that the reason there aren't more Star Wars or Indy movies is because you can't replace them.

I say Disney needs to acquire Uncharted or Infamous movie rights and work and video game adaptations that have similar stories to Indy but aren't Indy. I can get behind an Uncharted film because it is practically a modern day Indy setting.

If it is to carry on I would rather they keep Harrison Ford for the next film and have him pass the Hat and whip onto a new character with new name rather than reboot the whole thing. Archeologists have assists all the time so I would like to see Harrison as a mentor to the new character. But ultimately I think they would be better off leaving it.

It's always odd recasting a character that has only existed as a certain actor. Like Bond for example was a character from books, superman from comics etc. So everyone has their own interpretation of the character. But someone like Indy, Snake Plissken, or Mad Max - they were not based on a literary character, they are the actor - there was no Snake until Kurt and Carpenter came along. Like when you see Indy in the comics, the artist draws Harrison Ford, not some generic guy, so it's always

They did have young Indy in part 3 and a tv show, so changing him around isn't something we haven't seen before so it may work. But they have to make their own stories, I don't want another Raiders with some other guy. if they keep the tone etc, then this may work.

I really see no problem with this, it worked for James Bond so why not?
Once of course its not a remake, and they just continue with new adventures keeping in it the same time period as the first three.
And they could do a Young Indiana Jones chronicles on it, have older Indy (Ford) at the start and flashing back to the 30s with Cooper.
