Lucasfilm had previously confirmed that Harrison Ford will be returning to play Indiana Jones in the fifth sequel of this franchise. But, there are rumours going around that Chris Pratt might be taking over for Ford, so the franchise can last and have more movies.
Will Chris Pratt Replace Harrison Ford In Indiana Jones 5?
Indiana Jones has been renewed for a fifth picture and it had been previously confirmed by the productions that Harrison Ford will be reprising the titular role, like the first four movies. There were rumours recently that Chris Pratt will probably be substituting Ford for the fifth movie of the show, which Ford has denied himself. Frank Marshall, who is bankrolling the project said in an announcement. “There will only be one Indiana Jones and that’s Harrison Ford”.
As per Daniel Richtman, Lucasfilm have been considering Chris Pratt to depicts a smaller version of the titular character in order to have the ability to continue the franchise with other spin-off films and a Disney+ show. These rumours are debunked earlier and are yet fixing again, making enthusiasts doubt it is all being done to create a smoother transition from Ford to Pratt.
