Ford: No Indiana Jones Except Me

Ford Offers Brief Indiana Jones 5 Update

As long as Harrison Ford is alive, don’t expect him to give a reboot of the “Indiana Jones” franchise his blessing.

We do know Lucasfilm and Disney are planning one more film in the saga which is targeting a July 9th 2021 release, and Ford is expected to return for that.

Speaking to the Today Show this week, the veteran actor was asked who he thinks would be a good replacement for him as the title star of the franchise. His answer was pretty succinct, direct and said with some cheek:

“Nobody is going to be Indiana Jones. Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones. When I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy!… This is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine this. I’m sorry, man.”

Pine, along with Chris Pratt, have been mentioned as potential candidates in the past to take on the hat and whip.
