Producer Frank Marshall clarified fan rumors this week…
With Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm and all its properties, speculation has risen as to how they plan to
resurrect the Indiana Jones franchise. Some rumors even suggested the casting of rising action movie star, Chris Pratt. Fans began to rally behind the idea with the surfacing of a well-done photoshop creation online (see right). I loved the idea too, actually. But it seems executives have other ideas..
“There are a lot of rumors… We haven’t even sat down to talk about Indy yet… at some point, we’ll sit down. But there’s a bunch of people who could probably take the baton.” He said they’re “not doing the Bond thing, where we’re going to call somebody else Indiana Jones… we have to figure this out.”
I guess time will tell what Disney and Lucasfilm decide to do with this wildly popular series. In the meantime, they have their hands pretty full with the new Star Wars trilogy.
