Bradley Cooper could be the next Indiana Jones
(Relaxnews) – Producers have their sights set on the “American Hustle” star for a reboot of the famous adventure movie franchise, Latino-review.com reports.
According to the website, Bradley Cooper is on Disney’s shortlist of actors who might fill Harrison Ford’s shoes by playing the famous archaeologist. The studio acquired the rights to the “Indiana Jones” franchise, along with those to “Star Wars,” when it purchased George Lucas’s Lucasfilm in 2012.
For the time being, however, there is still a possibility that Harrison Ford will wear the famous brown fedora once again. The 71-year-old actor could star in a direct sequel to the 2008 film “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”
Disney’s casting choice could depend in part on the screenplay, which has not been written. Latino-review.com indicates that Frank Darabont (“The Green Mile,” “The Walking Dead”) may have been approached to pen this fifth episode in the “Indiana Jones” franchise.
