Following the awful movie that was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, many people felt that there was no longer a need for any more Indiana Jones movies, especially featuring an old Harrison Ford, and especially with such an awful plot. However, it looks like we might just still get an Indiana Jones movie, with Harrison Ford once again donning the hat and whip.
However, while Steven Spielberg says that they will not kill off the Harrison Ford version of Indiana Jones, it is fair to say that it will have to be his final outing of the character, and there has been a lot of talk about rebooting the franchise. Now, there have been plenty of rumours as to who will replace Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, and here we take a look at a few of them.
Arguably the most likely of all the names being mentioned, would have to be the actor Chris Pratt, who has become a very popular actor indeed and definitely has what it takes to pull off the character. Chris is also around the age that you would want from an Indiana Jones, so he is seen by many as the perfect replacement.
With that said, some people are eager to see them taking it back a little bit by bringing us a younger version of Indiana Jones, possibly even giving us a sort of origins story to the character. With that in mind, there have been suggestions that actor Zac Efron could be the ideal choice to take on the role of a young Indiana Jones.
As is the case with a lot of characters at the moment, there have even been some suggestions that they should bring us a female Indiana Jones, as they would not even need to change the characters name. One actress who has previously put herself forward for the role of a female Indiana Jones is Megan Fox, but it is unlikely the fans of the franchise would be on board with that.
All in all, it is pretty clear that we are eventually going to see a new actor playing Indiana Jones, it is just a case of who will be right for the role.
