Harrison Ford is the only Indiana Jones. That?s what the mastermind of the ?Indiana Jones? movie basically pointed out when he was asked about making a fifth installment for the franchise. In an interview with Screen International, director Steven Spielberg talked about ?Indiana Jones V? and his reaction about Harrison For being replaced by another actor to fill the role of ?Indy.?
?I don?t think anyone could replace Harrison as Indy, I don?t think that?s ever going to happen,? Spielberg said. ?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.?
And with Ford almost in his 80?s, rumors have been circulating around the internet saying that the role could be passed on to another actor, with Chris Pratt leading the candidates. But Spielberg is quick to deny the rumors and stand by Ford?s side.
He was then asked why he would want to return to the franchise once again. ?Because there are more adventures out there than films,? he explained. ?So as long as there [are] 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.?
Harrison Ford still wants to become Indy
On the other hand, the main star of the franchise, Harrison Ford, also made it apparent that he is prepared and willing to become an adventurer again and reprise his role as the famous Indiana Jones. But of course, Steven Spielberg should be the one to direct the film.
?Oh yeah. Yeah, I?d love to do another Indiana Jones,? Ford said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, clearly interested in doing the fifth installment for the movie. ?A character that has a history and a potential, kind of a rollicking good movie ride for the audience, Steven Spielberg as a director ? what?s not to like??
While they have not yet fully talked about the idea of a fifth ?Indiana Jones? movie, Lucasfilm and Steven Spielberg are rumored to release the next installment in 2018.
