So, rumours have been going around for a while that Steven Spielberg is considering a reboot of the Indiana Jones franchise, and he wants Chris Pratt to star in it. Nothing is set in stone, but Pratt did talk to Entertainment Weekly this week about his thoughts on taking on such an iconic role. Spoiler alert: he’s pretty scared of messing it up.
For EW’s cover story this week, Pratt couldn’t confirm or deny the conversations but was definitely apprehensive about taking on such an iconic role. “You have to look at it and be like, ‘Is this right for me?’” says Pratt. “Is it right for me to do this? And is it perfect? You don’t want to be the guy who f—s that up.”
He does say that it’s kinda cool to even be included in rumors like that. He admits, “It’s pretty crazy that people hear that and they don’t go ‘What?!? That f—ing dude!’ What has happened in my life that you can see THAT?!”
I’m going to be honest – I’ve never actually seen any of the original Indian Jones movies, so frankly, I can’t really have an opinion on this one. However, I do think that casting Pratt could bring the franchise to a whole new generation of fans, so I’m not 100% against it.
What do you think?
