Earlier this week came a report that Bradley Cooper was being linked as a potential replacement for Harrison Ford if the “Indiana Jones” franchise were to be rebooted. The same report indicated that filmmaker Frank Darabont had pitched an idea for the next installment.
Darabont has denied the second part of those rumors, telling AICN: “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.”
As for the first part of the rumor, “Indiana Jones” film series producer Frank Marshall tweeted: “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.”
