New Actor Being Lined Up To Replace Harrison Ford As INDIANA JONES?
Kellvin Chavez of Latino Review, is reporting that Harrsion Ford's Indiana Jones days may be numbered. Like his onscreen father, Sean Connery (James Bond), he too may have to step aside so that a young actor can breathe new life into an iconic character.
The source that told Latino Review Bradley Cooper ("Limitless") would voice Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has informed Kellvin Chavez that Cooper is being eyed to takeover the Indiana Jones franchise. Think of it like a reboot, what the James Bond franchise has incurred several times.
Our ever reliable sources are informing us that while Harrison Ford might still play Indiana Jones in the next film of the franchise, the window of making that happen is getting smaller and smaller. There is a date and if Indiana Jones 5 is not moving forward by then, the studios are 100% prepared to recast a younger Dr. Jones and ready up a new trilogy. Let’s be realistic, Harrison is not the box office draw he once was and he is only getting older.
And who just might be one of the actors that the studio is looking at ? The word is that they are looking at several but Bradley Cooper is at the top of the list. As to who might be writing the next Indy? We are hearing that Frank Darabont might be taking a crack at the franchise once again. All we heard is that Darabont pitched an idea.

At the end of 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, it seemed like Indiana Jones was riding off into the sunset and his son Mutt, played by serial plagiarist Shia LaBeouf, was going to don the iconic fedora and whip, but at the very last moment Mutt was denied. This left many people wondering if Harrison Ford still had one more Indiana Jones left in him. In the past few years, Ford has gone out of his way to say that he still had interest in the role, but the 71-year-old actor ain't no spring chicken. I also find it interesting that Frank Darabont ("Shawshank Redemption") would revisit the franchise after his last go-around. Darabont wrote a script for the fourth Indy, entitled Indiana Jones and the City of Gods. It was set in the 1950's and had "ex-Nazis pursuing Jones." The script was well received by Steven Spielberg, but George Lucas didn't care for it. That's when Lucas stepped in and wrote the screenplay. We all know how that turned out. Inter-dimensional aliens, ugh.
