Fans of Indiana Jones can exhale. Steven Spielberg has confirmed that Harrison Ford is the only person he would have play the iconic archaeologist.
Rumors have been swirling about different actors taking on the mantle as Indiana Jones for quite some time. In an interview with Screen Daily, Spielberg said, “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. There is only going to be one actor playing Indiana Jones and that’s Harrison Ford.”
Harrison Ford confirmed that he would be interested in making another Indiana Jones movie last month. “I would love to do another Indiana Jones and work with Steven again. If we get a script, I’d love to do it,” Ford said on Good Morning America.
Spielberg also said he would be interested in making another Indiana Jones film and said, “There are more adventures out there than films. So as long as there’s more adventures out there, I’ve got a bullwhip, a fedora, a leather jacket, and a man on a horse who knows how to get the job done.”
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the last movie of the franchise, came out back in 2008. Many fans were disappointed by the film, but it still made over $786 million worldwide.
