Screen Daily have revealed that Steven Spielberg intends to make a fifth Indiana Jones film and would never replace Harrison Ford. Rumours have been rife that Indiana’s whip could be passed on with Chris Pratt as favourite. The fourth instalment Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was labelled a disappointment by critics and fans so Spielberg may have unfinished business with the franchise.
Spielberg said of the rumours, “I don’t think anyone could replace Harrison as Indy, I don’t think that’s ever going to happen. It’s certainly not my intention to ever have another actor step into his shoes in the way there have been many actors that have played Spider-Man or Batman. There is only going to be one actor playing Indiana Jones and that’s Harrison Ford. So as long as there’s more adventures out there, I’ve got a bullwhip, a fedora, a leather jacket and a man on a horse who knows how to get the job done”.
