Frank Darabont & Frank Marshall Shoot Down Latest INDIANA JONES Rumor
It behooves me to report that screenwriter/director Frank Darabont ("Shawshank Redemption"), producer Frank Marshall and a source for SlashFilm have all said that there is no truth behind the recent Indiana Jones rumor Latino Review recently posted.
A few days ago, Kellvin Chavez of Latino Review reported that the window for Harrison Ford returning for another Indiana Jones film was quickly closing and that producers were seriously entertaining the thought of replacing Ford with a younger actor as everyone's favorite treasure-hunting archaeologist. They even stated that studios had Bradley Cooper ("The Hangover") at the top of their wish list. Another bit of their rumor concerned screenwriter/director Frank Darabont ("The Walking Dead"). They said he had pitched an idea for the next film. Since that rumor was posted Frank Darabont and producer Frank Marshall have issued statements debunking it. Even a source for SlashFilm has poked his head out to deny the rumor. You can read all those denials below. Please keep in mind, Latino Review has a very good track record with their scoops and this wouldn't be the first time that one of their rumors has been "debunked" only to end up being right in the end. Right, J.J. Abrams? I Khan-not hear you?
"This is an internet rumor with not a shred of truth in it. I have not pitched an idea for a proposed Indiana Jones movie, nor has anybody approached me with such an idea. The inaccurate report on Latino Review was the first I'd heard of it." - Frank Darabont (via aintitcool)
"We’ve contacted a high-placing source who tells /Film the below story is not true." - slashfilm.com
