INDY WILL STAY OLD: NO RECASTING FOR INDIANA JONES 5

Those fine transatlantic folks over at Den of Geek have a great story, via Total Film, that should warm the heart of any Monday morning commuter: Indiana Jones likely will not be recast.

Total Film asked Frank Marshall directly about it. Marshall equated it to James Bond – he couldn’t foresee anyone else being called Indiana Jones for short term acting cycles before handing the mantle forward like 007. Many speculated Chris Pratt is the hot favourite to swap into the fedora. Marshall has the chops to speak about this – he’s been involved in every Indy film and the new Jurassic Park. So he knows. What we know is that we’ll see Indiana Jones 5 sometime in next few years and after that? Some kind of spin off, no doubt..

Now the only other big casting news is who do we get to replace the Instant Ishtar of filmmakers, George Lucas?.. Someone who will never be forgiven for the abomination that was Indiana Jones 4.
