No Plans To Recast Harrison Ford In New ‘Indiana Jones’ Film

"[But we are] not doing the Bond thing where we're going to call somebody else Indiana Jones... we have to figure this out."

Film maker Frank Marshall who is to work on the new ‘Indiana Jones’ film has revealed that there are no plans to recast Harrison Ford with another younger actor.

Speaking to Total Film, Marshall explained that he and his team haven’t even got as far as casting the film yet.

“There are a lot of rumors,” he said. “We haven’t even sat down to talk about Indy yet… at some point we’ll sit down. But there’s a bunch of people who could probably take the baton.

“[But we are] not doing the Bond thing where we’re going to call somebody else Indiana Jones… we have to figure this out.”

Those that campaigning for Chris Pratt to take over the trademark whip and revolver can hold onto their fedoras because it just ain’t going to happen.

Marshall – veteran of the Bourne franchise, many of Robert Zemeckis’s biggest films and the previous four ‘Indiana Jones’ movies – knows his adventuring archaeologist and is not likely to choose any actor to take over the quest for fortune and glory.

The reboot of ‘Indiana Jones’ has been rumbling away since Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, but there are no confirmed release dates, directors or actors just yet.
