If you’ve been following the Hollywood rumor mill, you may have heard a big one that has been circulating for a while that Chris Pratt could reboot Indiana Jones after Harrison Ford created the character, and would play him for over 40 years when Indiana Jones 5 came out. Last week, Pratt was asked about this rumor, which he denied, citing his fear of being “chased” by Ford from the grave. After that, Indiana Jones fans weigh in.
Apparently, many fans of the legendary adventure franchise from Lucasfilm, most of which was directed by Steven Spielberg, would not have been on board if Chris Pratt had taken on this role. Twitter user @KLSomniate joked about this news:
Good. I’d rather watch a 100-year-old Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones than Chris Pratt as another annoying acerbic action hero.
Oh! Chris Pratt started with comedy, especially in the pseudo-documentary comedy “Parks and Recreation”, and then turned into an action hero for the films “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World”. He has also contributed to the development of this genre in other projects, such as “Tomorrow’s War” and most recently in the Amazon Prime series “Terminal List”. @_Don_Rodrigo_ also disagreed with Pratt in the role of Indie, saying:
Chris Pratt’s Choice for the Role of Indiana Jones Should Be a Crime
While promoting his Amazon Prime series, Chris Pratt turned on Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast (opens in a new tab), where he was asked about the Indiana Jones rumors. In response, Pratt referred to a 2019 Ford quote in which the Indie actor said TODAY: “When I’m gone, he’s gone.” Returning to the present, Pratt shared his fear that he would wake up the ghost of the actor if he took over the role after his death. Twitter user @girldrawsghosts joked about this topic, saying the following:
he dies from the fact that Harrison Ford doesn’t care about anything 99% of the time, but very specifically he doesn’t care about Chris Pratt replacing him.
Now, not everyone will not like it if Chris Pratt plays this role. In 2020, there was even a deep fake of the actor in the role of Indiana Jones, and many comments were caused by the fact that, theoretically, Pratt was in this role. In the two years between then and now, perhaps more and more people are becoming less interested in an actor playing so many roles in action movies. Also, there is the problem that Indiana Jones is so iconic that if someone ever replaces him, they will have to go through an uphill battle, no matter who they are. As shared by @A_MysticalOne:
Spielberg created this character for Harrison Ford, as it should be. To hell with the reboot.
Harrison Ford will play Indiana Jones for the last time in the fifth film, which will be released in 2023. The plot of “Indiana Jones 5” is still a secret, but longtime franchise producer Frank Marshall said he would give what “everyone wants” from the film. You can see the first image of Ford in the movie “Indiana Jones 5” and prepare for its release on June 30, 2023.
