'Indiana Jones' Reboot Might Happen & These 9 Actors & Actresses Would Flawlessly Reinvent The Iconic Role
Start preparing yourselves now, Indy fans: An Indiana Jones reboot may be is on its way. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, commented that the rumored Indiana Jones reboot film "will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.” So OK — there's no story, star, or director quite yet, but still — if Kennedy's words are true, the franchise will return, and likely sooner rather than later. With the upcoming Star Wars sequels on their way too, it seems Lucasfilm and Disney are focusing their energy on taking the box office by storm solely through playing on your love of nostalgic sci-fi action films.
Though there have been talks about Chris Pratt and Bradley Cooper taking on the lead, neither have been confirmed. As great as those two would be in the role, they'd be more of a reprise of Harrison Ford's portrayal rather than a reinvention — which leads me to think that Disney and Lucasfilm should totally just go in an entirely different direction with this reboot, should it ever happen. And, to get the company started, here are some men and women who I think could really take the role and mold it into something entirely different. You're welcome, guys.
