Rumours of a new Indiana Jones movie are starting to come together… and Steven Spielberg may even be up to direct.
It’s no secret that Chris Pratt is the one actor we all want to see in the leading role of an Indiana Jones reboot. And with rumours of an upcoming movie, it looks as though we might just see that happen.
But would Steven Spielberg want to direct?
According to Deadline, the legendary director wants to take the helm of the new Indiana Jones film… as long as his schedule permits it.
“Last month, I reported that Steven Spielberg wants Chris Pratt to anchor the rebirth of Indiana Jones that is being developed at Disney,” they revealed. “It’s very early days, but my sources tell me that, assuming a script comes in to his satisfaction, Spielberg hopes to direct that film.”
Of course, Chris Pratt has been at the very top of the Indiana Jones wish list since his appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy. And he’s certainly got the swagger to pull it off. But is the rumoured movie really gathering steam?
“Word from Spielberg’s camp is that it’s too early to determine what will happen because there is no script yet and they are just getting going,” they revealed. But it certainly makes a lot of sense.
After all, Chris Pratt’s appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy turned a lot of heads, and with the 35-year-old star about to lead the upcoming Jurassic World movie, he’s making a real name for himself as an all-round action star.
But will Steven Spielberg jump on board?
It’s probably every fan’s dream to see Spielberg direct another Indiana Jones movie… and with Chris Pratt so obviously wanted in the leading role, it could be the perfect time to reboot the franchise.
Of course, for now we’ll have to wait and see. But with Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm, I get the feeling they’ll want to move forward with more than just Star Wars. And Chris Pratt is just the guy to do it.
