Rumor: Spielberg may be interested in directing Chris Pratt in Indiana Jones

steven spielberg indiana jones reboot

Last month it was reported that Disney was eyeing Chris Pratt to take over the whip and satchel as Indiana Jones. It's always never a positive response when a beloved franchise is gearing up for reboot, but I think it's safe to say the majority of our readers were hip to the news. Rumors are spreading tonight that, assuming he’s satisfied with the script, Steven Spielberg would want to direct the new film. This is great news (if and when it's official, obviously) considering he directed Harrison Ford in all the previous installments.

The film is still in the very early stages of course, and so rumors like this should not be taken seriously at this point (put the phone down). It’s too early to say what will happen as there isn’t even a script yet but it’s a pretty awesome prospect though don’t you think? Deadline reported the news, which makes for one heck of a headline before the weekend. It at least makes people consider ideas for who might take up the director’s chair for such an important film. Pratt is the hottest actor working right now and was even Spielberg’s choice to be the star of JURASSIC WORLD. Let’s hope they go the way of The Force Awakens for Indy’s next movie and don’t rely so much on CG effects like last time.

Is it time for someone new blood to have a chance at an Indiana Jones adventure or would you like to see Steven Spielberg right some of the wrongs from INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL?

I see this as pretty comparable to George Miller bringing Hardy in, which is looking good right now. I get that it's dangerous tinkering with iconic characters, but Bond and Batman have been replaced before, and Pratt has the action background and likability for Indy.

No one is capable of playing Indiana Jones today

Sorry, but today's actors are just too soft.

I for indy

I love Pratt and I love the fact he's got charisma and charm. I feel he's a great fit for Indy and I agree with others on here that I don't want a 70 year old ford swinging about with his wip and hat. Indiana Jones is like bond - he's a persona, an idea so just recast it and get on with it. Like batman and superman before it - characters get replaced and movies still happen - deal with it

What a shitty rumor

I doubt very seriously that Steven Spielberg would bail on Harrison Ford while Ford still is willing and wants to play Indiana Jones. If Spielberg does direct a fifth Indiana Jones film it will and must star Harrison Ford as Indy. There is no other actor who can wear the Fedora and be accepted as Indiana Jones because Harrison Ford built that character from the ground up, from top to bottom. There will never be another actor who can take his place in that role. Furthermore, Spielberg has too

Like Star Wars, let a younger filmmaker tackle this character. If any project can pull Steven Soderbergh out of feature film retirement, it would be the chance to re-invent and relaunch Indiana Jones. He's obsessed with the film, and he gets exactly what made the original work so well.

I prefer Chris Hemsworth based on his Rush performance. Chris Pratt evokes a Seann William Scott vibe, which isn't a bad thing but I can never get it out of my head.

The only reason Harrison Ford got Indiana Jones in the first place was because he was Han Solo. And he got that job because Lucas used him as a stand in during auditions and never bothered to replace him. Look at Harrison Ford's career before Indiana Jones. He did Star Wars and American Graffiti. One's a comedy and the other is a kid's space movie (yeah its Amazing and all that, but it's a kids movie), both of which were done by the same guy who was doing Indiana Jones. Ford did a few other bit

One's a comedy and the other is a kid's space movie (yeah its Amazing and all that, but it's a kids movie), both of which were done by the same guy who was doing Indiana Jones. Ford did a few other bit parts that were either forgettable or just plain bad (does anyone remember "The Fresno Kid"?). Ford didn't prove himself an actor until after Indiana Jones came out. Saying that Chris Pratt can't do it because he's too funny is completely disregarding how Ford got the part. Chris Pratt would make a fine Indiana Jones. He's done charismatic action star (Guardians), action drama (Zero Dark Thirty), and of course comedy. He is physically built like Indiana Jones, about the same age, and everyone likes him. He is not a flavor of the month actor any more than Harrison Ford was back in 1980.

We need to think about what's good for the franchise, and having a 72 year old man swing from a whip and save the girl, is not gonna cut it.

Ford and Pratt are two very different actors

I still don't like the idea of recasting but if you do, try to stick closer to the original. Ford is a mostly serious actor who can sometimes be funny. Pratt is funny all the way and if he can do okay as an action star, I still think he should be a comedy star first. In Guardians of the Galaxy, even though he was in great shape for the film, he never looked badass. It was kind of the point of the part but I still think it's his niche.

It's very different of Ford, who could say the line

I like Pratt for it, but I like Bradley Cooper better for just this reason. Indiana Jones isn't a hilarious snarker. He's pretty serious most of the time, with a boyish charm. He can be kind of a prick on occasion, too.

Pratt can do both, he's done some serious roles. He's not just action and comedy. He was good in "Moneyball" and "Zero Dark Thirty". He was also in "Everwood" which i have not seen but people tell me it's good.

Also, look at Harrison Ford's career before he did Indiana Jones. He did 2 comedies and a space opera. I agree that Indiana Jones should be more than jokes and action. Pratt is still early into his career and already he's proven he can do drama.

Chris Pratt is only seven years older than Shia LaBeouf so they can set Indy 5 a decade after Indy 4 and have Chris Pratt take over the role Shia had but now refer to him as Indiana Jones Junior. Wasn't this the plan when they introduced Shia LaBeouf's character anyway?

I actually think Pratt is kind of a modern Harrison Ford. I mean, lets face it, neither of them are great, generation defining actors. They're great at what they do but no one is putting them on any "actors of the century" list. Clearly Disney is going to make a new Indy installment, and I think Pratt is one of the few Hollywood guys who could take it over right now. Bradley Cooper is another choice, but it seems like he's trying to do smaller films these days. I think Indiana Jones is a

I can't see the Indiana Jones character wanting to slow down at age 72, and clearly Ford isn't either.

He's playing Han Solo in the new Star Wars, why not Indiana Jones too?

I guess I'm just not ageist.

Lets not bring back Harrison Ford

I love the guy as much as the next person, but his time has passed. Like Sean Connery, he was the original, and arguably the best. But to bring him back now would be a sad cash grab. The whole point of Indiana Jones is to set him during the age of explorers. Between 1920 and 1940 it was a archaeologist's dream. Opening pyramids, making contact with the last untouched tribes, racing between scientists and grave robbers. Indiana Jones couldnt live in any other time. Having him an old man in the

Opening pyramids, making contact with the last untouched tribes, racing between scientists and grave robbers. Indiana Jones couldnt live in any other time. Having him an old man in the 1960s, what would he do? He can't fight anymore, the soviets are lame villain, and by 1960's most all things have been discovered. We need to keep Indy in the 1930s, opening tombs and clashing old world traditions with turn of the century technology. And if we are keeping him in the '30s, we need a new Indy. At most Ford would make a cameo, passing the torch in a way. People who want Ford back are clinging to the past that can not be recaptured. No matter what they do, the audience is gonna be disappointed with him in the lead. There's a great review on youtube of someone comparing the fight choreography for the first Indiana Jones movie with the last one. Because of his age, the fighting is slowed down, relies heavily on effects, and a lot less suspenseful than before. Im not saying he can't lead a movie or he's not fun to watch anymore, but it's completely different that what you remember. Indiana Jones is a saturday morning cartoon character. He has his iconic whip and hat, sharp and tackful, and always gets the girl. These movies are not sequels or prequels, they are his many adventures. Each week he is in some other corner of the earth fighting bandits, protecting the artifacts, and rescuing the girl. And next week he will do it again, at a different corner, protecting other artifacts, and kissing a new girl. Just like James Bond.

Whether it's Pratt or not, it can't be Ford. Sean Connery may have been the best Bond, but most people i know enjoy watching Daniel Craig in the role (remember everyone up in airs that James Bond was blonde?). A new actor means a new interpretations. But so long as he kicks ass, has a sharp tongue and sharp mind, and gets the girl in the end, everyone will be happy.

go on, hate me. but you know they will never recapture the magic of the original films. All we can hope for is them making new magic for us to enjoy

"by 1960's most all things have been discovered"

If that were true then the Tomb Raider and National Treasure movies wouldn't have worked.

Obviously, Indiana Jones can explore the coast of Spain looking for artifacts from the ancient city of Atlantis. Indy 4 set a precedent so that we can attribute their reportedly advanced technology to aliens. Really, why is it okay to kowtow to Christian or Hindu beliefs and not throw a bone to alien worshiping scientologists? Is it because one is

1. yes archaeologists are still discovering stuff everyday. But the whole point of indiana jones was to be in that time period of famous archaeologists. The guys you read about in Ripley's, the guys who were cursed by mummys, the guys that were the best part of news reels before your movie started. Indiana Jones lives in that period. It is as much a part of why we love the series as the whip and hat.

2. The biggest issue i had with Crystal Skull was that it completely ignored what happened

It is as much a part of why we love the series as the whip and hat.

2. The biggest issue i had with Crystal Skull was that it completely ignored what happened in the previous movies. In both Raiders and Last Crusade, there is mysticism associated with Judeo-Christian mythology. The Ark opens and god's power kills everyone, he drinks for the grail and is healed. In Temple of Doom there really isn't any mysticism to negate that. So it is well established that in Indy's world, god exists. The Jews, Christians, and possibly the Muslims were all right. There is no Egyptian Gods to curse the tombs, nor curse on any lost Amazonian tribe. Then Crystal Skull comes in and says "nope, there is no god, it was all Aliens", either that or one is ignoring the other. It's like the Mummy movies, once the mummy comes back to life, what more proof do you need of the afterlife. There is no Jesus, no God, just Ra and the almighty Egyptian gods. Ancient Egypt got it right with religion. But then in the third movie, they go to China, where they have Chinese gods. So which civilization got it right. Who is the all seeing force about us, Egyptian Gods, or Chinese Gods? And why do the main characters still believe in their christian Gods when they have been given physical proof that they are wrong.

I accept mysticism in the movies, just so long as it picks one and sticks with it. They could still do Atlantis, there doesnt have to mysticism there. They could do Noah's Ark, the burning bush, tomb of king David. Remember these are action movies first and foremost, the fantasy part is complementary, so we dont really need to be dazzled by Egyptian or Hindu gods, especially when that dumps on the world the previous movies set up.

With Spielberg at the helm I feel he will have Ford back and introduce Pratt as his son. As I have suggested before he would be perfect as the offspring of Indy and Willie Scott as Ford takes the Connery role as father. We have nothing to lose in this scenario and everything to gain. Closure with Ford and future whip-wielding adventures with Pratt. Now less CGI and more Actual stunts/ piranhas/ lost temples/ booby traps/ and some form of supernatural religious artifact are required.

Spielberg without modern Lucas is always a good thing. But Pratt is a terrible choice for Indy. Just because he and Ford both played in big fun space films doesn't mean Pratt can play Indy. Pratt simply doesn't have that badass screen presence. Funny and cocky, yeah, but a lean mean badass? No way.

I'm guessing Chris Pratt's Indy will be placed after the events of Raiders and just before Crusade assuming the original timeline is respected otherwise forget any of that happened and use the Space Race of the 1960s as a backdrop:

Turns out the Russians have ALREADY been to the moon and the US govt has learnt that they have plans to set up a lunar base with a strange alien/ancient macguffin (think how superman's fortress was built) and Indy is sent to retrieve the said item.

What follows

What follows next is car chase through Moscow's street, a fight with the obligatory 'twice-Indy's-size' henchmen on a submarine, an explosive shoot out on a train to Siberia with 'something-something' Gates (*wink-wink* Disney self shout out) as his temporary side-kick and a narrow escape in a space-pod upon re-entry which destroys the macguffin and the Soviets go into overdrive covering it up and the movie ends with Indy at a bar (with a sexy Russian defector lady) listening to JFKs speech about going to moon and both of them exchange knowing glances and smile warmly.

But I guess now we have to hear Chris Pratt's side of the story to confirm this rumour.

If Pratt...

...then Bird.
Brad Bird directing Chris Pratt makes perfect sense. Bird is a Disney guy and can direct the fuck out of an action sequence, but gives equal attention to story and dialogue. Essentially 100 times better than (today's version of) Lucas, on all levels.
Bird and Pratt would be a winning combo. On all levels.

As long as Ford can still walk and remember lines, he should not be replaced as Indiana Jones. And if Steven Spielberg directs it while Ford is still willing and able to return as Indy, I think would be a big slap in the face. But these are only just rumors...

If The Beard is cool with Chris Pratt as Indiana Jones,

(presuming this rumour is true), then that's good enough for me. Considering Harrison Ford is now north of 70, Indiana Jones is going to be recast; at least I want it to be somebody that Steven Spielberg is happy with. That, and George Lucas is not allowed anywhere near the script.

Ford deserves one more!

Didn't Ford ask for one more Indy film in order to appear as Han Solo in the new Star Wars movie?
If they are able to film action scenes with Christopher Lee who's way over 80 as Count Dooku and Saruman, etc... Ford is fit enough to be part of a new Indy film... no Shia please, forget about his character... Ford deserves a better sendoff than KOTCS... after the 5th movie it to Chris Pratt or whoever they want to, to me Indiana Jones dies when Harrison Ford stops playing that character.

We need to start making Indiana Jones like James Bond. A new Indy, new director, new stories. Reboot yes, but not a remake. Indiana Jones goes on non-sequential adventures that lends itself to constant re-envisioning. Im a little uneasy about Spielberg directing for two reasons. First, Crystal Skull was atrocious and his name was all over it. Second, a reboot would need to distance itself from the original. Show people that it's not trying to copy the original movies, but give us something new

Show people that it's not trying to copy the original movies, but give us something new and grow into something fresh with the character. Still, there is no denying that Spielberg has done a lot more good than bad, and keeping him on for the fifth movie would help the transition of a new Indy.

im torn about his involvement. I know it was originally George Lucas's idea (Spielberg was lobbying for James Bond when Lucas said he had something better) but that man hasn't really had a good idea since (did anyone see "Strange Magic"?). As long as Lucas keeps enjoying his retirement and doesnt poke his nose in our theaters, im ok with moviing forward on a new Indiana Jones.
