Is Chris Pratt Set For ‘Indiana Jones’ Reboot?

2 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With Disney having acquired Lucasfilm, it’s easy to forget that it’s not all just about Star Wars. Rumours are now leaking out of a possible Indiana Jones reboot, with Chris Pratt taking over from Harrison Ford. The last film in the franchise, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, was absolutely awful on most accounts, but still went on to be a box-office hit. There were mutterings of a fifth film, but it now seems as though Disney would rather start over again.

The move seems to make sense, as Ford can hardly be expected to carry a brand new series of films. Pratt meanwhile, is already the lead in Disney’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, which has a confirmed sequel, as well as heading up the fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World. The first two films in that series of course being »

Chris Pratt Might Be Indiana Jones In That Reboot We Told You About

4 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In 2013, Disney bought the rights for future Indiana Jones movies from Paramount and last March we brought you the Exclusive that the next Indiana Jones movie, being developed under the name Indiana Jones 5, might not star the aging (no less awesome, Solo fans hope) Harrison Ford.

Producer Frank Marshall went on record saying no one had consulted him about replacing Ford for a reboot, so of course it was all a false rumor. Plans either changed or the inevitability of replacing Harrison Ford for an Indiana Jones movie Disney is obviously making finally dawned on everyone and Deadline reports today that Chris Pratt, who arguably played Indiana Jones in Guardians of the Galaxy and might again in the upcoming Jurassic World, is being eyed to take over the fedora.

The New 'Ghostbusters': Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones

4 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The '80s reboot-recasting movie news continues today, and while Chris Pratt as Indiana Jones is heavily just a rumor for now, the all-female Ghostbusters lineup has officially filled out a bit. According to various sources, these are the four lucky ladies who will all be bustin' some ghosts: Kristen Wiig Melissa McCarthy Kate McKinnon Leslie Jones Those first two names were obvious considering director Paul Feig already worked with both on Bridesmaids, and their names have been swirling around ever since he landed the high-profile remake. If you don't recognize those last two names, however, you may want to tune in to Saturday Night Live. They're both cast members on this current season, and both are very funny comedians primed for a bigger...

'Jurassic World': Will Jake Johnson Get Eaten Alive?

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the first trailer debuted in November for Jurassic World, one of the characters we didn't get to see was Jake Johnson, who previously starred in director Colin Trevorrow's first feature Safety Not Guaranteed. While we wait to see the New Girl star in action on Isla Nublar, Jake Johnson recently revealed new details during an interview with MTV, where he spoke about working with writer Derek Connolly and director Colin Trevorrow again, and how they made this massive production feel 'normal.'

"That's the question I haven't gotten, is actually how easy it was between action and cut, because they're my friends. We've worked together. We were here at Sundance. We had this indie we made for $600,000, and then we're on that set, so everything, from going through hair and makeup, to wardrobe, to walking on these enormous sets, was so weird. And then, when Colin calls quiet, »

Disney Reportedly Wants Chris Pratt As Its New 'Indiana Jones'

5 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Back when Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, all eyes were on Star Wars. And rightfully so, since the main reason Disney wanted the house George Lucas built was so that it could make a new trilogy (and then some). But that was far from the only lucrative property under Lucas' thumb. They also have one of the most beloved film characters of all time in the mix: Indiana Jones. Since that acquisition, there have been quite a few rumors about a new Indiana Jones movie, but nothing solid has risen to the surface. Now there's a new rumor to throw in the mix, but this one is so obvious and logical that it may very well be true: Disney wants Chris Pratt to headline a new Indiana Jones franchise. It is strictly a rumor at this point, as Deadline insists Disney won't comment so...

Chris Pratt Could Lead Disney's Indiana Jones Revival

7 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We've heard rumblings about Disney wanting to restart the Indiana Jones franchise, with varying reports, but now comes word about who the house of mouse is looking to cast in the lead role...Chris Pratt.  Come inside for the scoop!  

Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm many fans were wondering what would happen to the Indiana Jones franchise.  We've heard all kinds of rumors since the acquisition, but with their focus on Star Wars at the moment, nothing seems to have come of anything just yet.  Now Deadline is reporting that Chris Pratt is being looked at to potentially take over the iconic whip: 

I’m cautioned that while things are very early, I hear the studio has set its sights on Chris Pratt as the swashbuckling archaeologist they hope to build the new franchise around, the role made famous by Harrison Ford in Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

Wisely, Deadline »

Chris Pratt Is Indiana Jones?

8 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney expanded their dominance with the purchase of Marvel in 2009 and scooped up Lucasfilm in a similar deal a few years later. Star Wars: The Force Awakens and a number of spinoffs are the result of the latter, but did you know that the rights to Indiana Jones were also included in the deal?

After leaving him on the shelf for the past couple of years, Disney have set about reviving the Indiana Jones franchise according to Deadline. Things are said to be in the very early stages as of right now, but they already have an eye on a leading man!

Chris Pratt shot to superstardom in 2014 with roles in The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy, so perhaps it’s no real surprise that he’s being eyed to fill Harrison Ford’s fedora. Whether he will accept is another thing altogether, but it’s hard »

Chris Pratt Might Be the New Indiana Jones

8 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Could Chris Pratt be stepping into Harrison Ford's shoes? Maybe! The hilarious Parks and Recreation star turned movie star is rumored to be up for the Indiana Jones reboot as Indy himself. At this point, it sounds like the studio just wants him, but given Pratt's magic touch with last year's Guardians of the Galaxy and (we hope ) this year's Jurassic World, this casting makes total sense. I mean, if anyone is going to reboot a classic role, it might as well be this guy, right? »

Disney May Be Looking To Chris Pratt For Indiana Jones Revival

9 hours ago | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

While I fear we may be reaching a tipping point where we have too much Chris Pratt - with great popularity comes great number of role offers - there is no denying that something like this would be awesome and should be categorized under 'Fuck' and 'Yeah', if we had those categories. Be mindful that this, according to the report over at Deadline, is in the really, really early stages. But having bought the rights for the Indiana Jones franchise from Paramount, Disney is looking for someone to cast in the titular role. And Chris Pratt may just be their man. With exception of Temple of Doom (Just a wee bit darker than the others) the franchise's focus on adventure and fun is something that Pratt has clearly...

Yes! Chris Pratt Being Eyed for Lead Role in Indiana Jones Remake: Report

9 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The all-female Ghostbusters announcement isn't the only spot-on casting news of the day! Chris Pratt is reportedly being eyed for the lead role in Disney Studio's upcoming Indiana Jones remake, according to Deadline. While the casting talks are in the very early stages (the trade said to consider the casting as a "dishy informed rumor"), fans are already going crazy at the idea of Pratt taking over the role of the whip-wielding archaeologist made famous by Harrison Ford in 1981's Raiders of the Lost Arc. "Chris Pratt as the new Indiana Jones!? Please let this happen. This guy is Killing it!!" one fan tweeted today. Another wrote, "Been saying this for a while now... great idea »

Disney Wants Chris Pratt as the New Indiana Jones

9 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This is something fans have been wondering about since Guardians of the Galaxy debuted, but now it's more than just speculation: Deadline is reporting that Disney "has set its sights" on Chris Pratt to play Indiana Jones in a "revival" of the franchise. Whether that means a complete reboot or a sequel with flashbacks (to allow Harrison Ford one more appearance as the famed archaeologist) remains to be seen, and the outlet cautions that things are still very early in the process right now.

Pratt, who became famous for his hilarious work on Parks and Recreation, has become a huge star in the wake of Guardians of the Galaxy. He has Jurassic World coming up this summer, and has lined up a Guardians sequel and The Magnificent Seven remake opposite Denzel Washington. Fans have already been teased with the idea of Pratt as Indy when a »

Chris Pratt could be Indiana Jones

10 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Ever since Chris Pratt piloted the Milano, the similarities between him and a certain scruffy smuggler were blatantly obvious. And now, it's like Chris Pratt is following Harrison Ford's career path, if the rumour mill is to be believed. Starlord is being eyed up to star in an Indiana Jones reboot. Now that's a heavy rumour mill that is grinding, and as much as I hate reboots, Pratt would be ideal as the whip wielding, wise cracking archaeologist. Disney and Paramount struck a deal back in 2013, and said that a new Indy movie may hit big screens in two to three years while a writing team trashed out a good story. So, that time frame, while not exact, maybe on course for a late 2016 / early 2017 release. Pratt's got the charisma, the look and the attitude. He'd be perfect. But do we really want an Indy reboot? Or should there »

Following the success of "Guardians of the Galaxy," everybody wants Chris Pratt for their next film. One project at Disney though may get him - the proposed reboot of the "Indiana Jones" franchise.

The studio is reportedly eyeing Pratt to star in the project, taking over the role which Harrison Ford played in four previous films. While he may be the studio favorite, talks are said to be only in very early stages.

Both Bradley Cooper and Robert Pattinson were previously rumored for the film, reports which have since been debunked. Disney is planning to revive the franchise but CEO Bob Iger has claimed they intend to pace themselves with the project.

Pratt will next film "The Magnificent Seven" remake in April.

Disney Might Give the People What They Think They Want: Chris Pratt as Indiana Jones

10 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It all began with a really great Photoshop of Chris Pratt dressed as Indiana Jones. No, wait, it actually started with the actor’s performance in Guardians of the Galaxy, the opening of which has him aping the opening of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Fans of Pratt thought, “Hmm, he’s sort of doing a bit of Indy meets Han Solo there in that surprisingly awesome movie; perhaps he’s the new Harrison Ford and so let’s get the Internet excited with an image of what he would look like in a Regarding Henry remake.” Just kidding; they exclaimed, “Here’s Pratt as Indy with hat and jacket and whip!!” (specifically “Rahzzah” on Deviant Art) And some websites ran with the idea to the point that others were reporting it as rumor if not truth. Well, now even the trades are on board, because maybe Disney is actually on board. Deadline »
