Steven Spielberg Says No One Could Replace Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones


Steven Spielberg has confirmed that he intends to make a fifth Indiana Jones film, and he doesn’t think that Indy will ever be recast. And while there’s been no announcement that Harrison Ford will make the film with Spielberg, there has been speculation that other actors may step into role. (Chris Pratt anyone?)

“I don’t think anyone could replace Harrison as Indy. I don’t think that’s ever going to happen. It’s certainly not my intention to ever have another actor step into his shoes in the way there have been many actors that have played Spider-Man or Batman,” Spielberg told Screen Daily. “There is only going to be one actor playing Indiana Jones, and that’s Harrison Ford.”

The speculation about the role being recast was addressed a few months back as well by Frank Marshall, who produced all four Indiana Jones movies.

“There are a lot of rumors,” said Marshall. “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.”

“We’re not doing the Bond thing where we’re going to call somebody else Indiana Jones,” he added.

With Harrison Ford being in his mid-70s now, it’s not hard to see why rumors started about that “baton” (let’s say “the whip” instead) being passed. But fans can now officially consider that rumor false.
