Reports of Indy’s recasting have been greatly exaggerated.
The internet had a conniption yesterday when Latino Review suggested Bradley Cooper was being eyed for an Indiana Jones reboot, suggesting the saga would be taking a ‘James Bond’ route.
Slash Film has since heard from a high-placing source that the rumour is not true.
Producer Frank Marshall also Tweeted the following:
“Due to the ridiculous rumors that keep popping up, like agents pipe dreams, I will stop commenting on our projects until I have real news.”
Until we hear anything further, let’s believe Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are still mulling the idea of a fifth Indy movie with Harrison Ford in the lead.
Fact is, however, Ford can’t work forever, and the way Hollywood likes to operate, it’s silly to think there won’t be another Indy instalment made after he’s retired.
