New ‘Indiana Jones’ Movie in the Works at Disney!


In the June issue of Vanity Fair, the magazine spoke with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy about Star Wars: The Force Awakens for their big Star Wars issue and while they have her talking, they got her to confirm that a new Indiana Jones movie is indeed in the works!

Here is the excerpt from the magazine:

“In buying the company, Disney also got rights, for better or worse, to less-storied Lucasfilm properties, among them Willow and Radioland Murders. A bigger prize is the Indiana Jones franchise. Kennedy confirmed rumors that another Indy movie ‘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.’”

It’s been rumored for months that Chris Pratt would star in a reboot of the franchise but nothing has been confirmed at this point. Once news breaks we’ll have it for you.

Steven Spielberg May Direct Next ‘Indiana Jones’…Is Chris Pratt Joining Him?

chris-pratt-indiana-jonesSounds as if we have a marriage made in Disney heaven. Deadline is reporting that Steven Spielberg (at least his team of people) is potentially interested in directing the fifth installment into the Indiana Jones franchise and he would like to bring Chris Pratt along with him. This news comes mere months after it was reported that Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm were eyeing the Guardians of the Galaxy star as the successor to Harrison Ford’s famous character.

Ford, now 73 years old, has been quite vocal about wanting to return to the franchise for one more go, but if these reports are true, it would appear that the legendary actor was being forced out. This would not come as a surprise to many as the last installment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, is widely considered an epic failure by fans and critics alike, despite making close to $800 million globally.

We will next see Chris Pratt star in this summers blockbuster Jurassic World, a movie produced by Spielberg, who is said to have selected Pratt to star in the film.
