Harrison Ford doesn’t want Chris Pratt to play Indiana Jones

Harrison Ford has shown that he does not want to Chris Pratt – or any other Chris – to play Indiana Jones after the coming Indian movie will be released. Ford said once he’s done with the character, it’s over. No one else can play the role as far as the legendary Hollywood actor is concerned.


Ford revealed this in an interview with TODAY (via Esquire) after being asked if he’d like someone else to play the part after he’s done wearing his hat and whip. Here is what he had to say on the subject:

Nobody’s gonna be Indiana Jones, you know? I’m Indiana Jones. When I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy.

There were many rumors suggesting that Lucasfilm was looking at Chris Pratt to take on the role after Ford was done playing Indy. This came after Pratt basically played a version of Jones in the recent Jurrasic World films. However, it seems like Ford isn’t a fan of this idea.

“That’s a hell of a way to say it to Chris Pine,” the actor said. “I’m sorry, man.” I know Ford said “Chris Pine” during the interview, but I’m pretty sure he actually meant Chris Pratt. However, it really seems like Ford thinks it’s over for Indy once he’s done with the role. However, I’m not sure Disney and Lucasfilm will have the same opinion about the character. I’m pretty sure they already have plans to do new Indiana Jones movies after the fifth one comes out whether Ford likes it or not.

Should Indy move on after the fifth film?

Ford spoke about the upcoming film during a presentation at the recent D23 Expo. He actually got very emotional talking about the film. He was joined on stage by his co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge and said she was one of the reasons he thinks this next film is really special. He started gagging a bit as he talked about it and it was just wonderful to see how much genuine emotion came from Ford as he talked about it India 5.

It makes me think that this upcoming movie will be really special. The film is directed by James Mangold, who has directed some of my all-time favorite films. He led logan, Walcohol The line, identityand girl interrupted, these are all brilliant films. Swiss chard also made LeMans ’66 (also known as Ford versus Ferrari) which I think is another great film of his. cop country is another one of his films that I think is pretty damn good.

His next film, Indiana Jones 5, will star Ford, Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen. They are joined by the likes of Boyd Holbrook, Antonio Banderas, Thomas Kretschmann and Toby Jones. This could be one of the best casts ever put together for an Indiana Jones film! I can’t wait to see the end product.
