Between Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie, Chris Pratt was probably THE action/adventure star of 2014. With Jurassic World coming up in June and The Magnificent Seven about to begin shooting, that momentum doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon.

If Disney has their way, we may very well see Pratt attached to another big franchise: The Indiana Jones series.

Ever since acquiring the rights to the swashbuckling archaeologist from Paramount in 2013 (who had held onto film rights even after the Lucasfilm purchase by the House of Mouse), the studio has been looking to reboot after the moribund reaction to Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. There were rumors floating around that Bradley Cooper would get the nod that were eventually dismissed, but now Deadline is hearing that Pratt is their go-to guy.

Its still a rumor at this point, but something to keep an eye on in a world where we’re about to get a Mad Max revival (and I call that a great thing, by the way).


  1. It shouldn’t be a reboot he could be his great great great grandson with a new cool name Indiana Drank from the cup witch should have extended his life span like the knight Indiana and the kid could investigate the face on mars and find a door to a different world in a different dimension where the people from mars went it could have cool space stuff and archaeology all in one movie and Harrison ford can pass the torch to a new guy Chris Pratt

  2. I’d never watched Parks and Rec until the last two weeks. I’m still binge watching it. Pratt is really great, and of course was amazing in Guardians of the Galaxy. If I were to compare him to Harrison Ford, I’d say he was a close match, but not as serious and smooth as the original. Still, I don’t know who’d do a better job and it all comes down to direction and writing.
