When asked last year if he'd be willing to play Indiana Jones again, 71-year-old Harrison Ford said it was "perfectly appropriate and O.K." for him to reprise the role. He added, however, the he thought the character "doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass." Rumor has it that Disney is not so keen on a gentler, kinder Indiana Jones. Though Ford has been rumored to play Indy in a fifth installment of the film, the studios want very much to move forward with the franchise. As the rumor goes, if Ford's Star Wars commitments keep him too busy, and that kinder, gentler script fails to come together by a certain date, then Disney will move forward rebooting the franchise without Ford.
That's where Bradley Cooper's name comes in to play. He's reportedly at the top of a long list Disney is keeping handy, in case they want to reboot the franchise-not a list of people who said they'd star, but just names they'd want involved. Your own personal wishlist of whip-toting heroes is just as likely to come true. Disney didn't purchase Lucasfilm just to gaze fondly at Star Wars and Indiana Jones collectibles gathering dust. They did so to make money. While the Cooper rumor is already being denied by some outlets, we should brace ourselves for the probability that Indiana Jones will have a new face eventually.
