18 Jul – Chris Pratt recently dismissed ongoing rumours that he will be the next Indiana Jones.
The actor, who sat down with Happy Sad Confused podcaster Josh Horowitz recently, addressed the said report that was first revealed by Deadline in the mid-2010s about him speaking with Steven Spielberg on succeeding Harrison Ford in the iconic role.
"I don't even know who Steven Spielberg is. Who? Steven who?" Pratt joked. "No, aren't they doing Indiana Jones with Harrison Ford? All I know is I once saw a quote from Harrison Ford and I don't even know if it was really him but it was enough to scare me, that was like, 'When I die, Indiana Jones dies'."
"And I'm like, am I going to get haunted by the ghost of Harrison Ford one day when he dies if I play....."
Pratt later turned serious and said that such a thing did not happen and that the previous report about him playing the character was a mistake.
It is noted that the fifth instalment of Indiana Jones, played by Harrison Ford who is now 80-years-old, will be in theatres on 30 June 2023.
