Actor Harrison Ford who has been playing Indiana Jones, says that the character ends with him
With his star role as Han Solo in the Star Wars film series and the title character of Indiana Jones movie series, we all know Harrison Ford as a legendary actor. Ford’s status as a leading actor was solidified when he starred in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981). Recently he was asked in an interview that who he would like to see take over once he is ready to step away from the role of the famous archaeologist- adventurer, the actor replied by saying, “Nobody is gonna be Indiana Jones! Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones. When I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy.”
We had heard rumors of Chris Pratt taking over the role of Indiana Jones in an upcoming reboot of the franchise, but Harrison Ford set the record straight.
“This is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine this. I’m sorry,man!” the actor said with a laugh, jokingly mistaking Chris Pratt for Chris Pine.
The movie is being directed by Steven Spielberg who helmed all the previous films with Ford as his role of iconic archaeologist. Spielberg has said that Indiana Jones 5 will probably be Ford’s final Indiana Jones film, though he expects the franchise to continue after that. He also said it is time for Indiana Jones to take a “different form” and this could be with a woman in the lead. “We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that,” Spielberg said.
Chris Pratt’s name has been connected with the role since 2015 when Disney bought the movie rights for the film from Paramount in 2013. He has emerged as the star playing roles in Avengers: Endgame and Jurassic World. Yet, it seems that he would not be taking over Indiana Jones franchise anytime soon. Ford has done some great films like Temple of Doom 1984 and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull 2008. Let’s wait for his next Indiana Jones 5 scheduled for July 2021.
