It looks like Star was isn’t the only dormant George Lucas film series that’s being revived – thanks to Lucas’ deal with Disney, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has announced that the company are in talks to produce a new entry in the Indiana Jones series.
Harrison Ford last appeared as the eponymous archaeologist in 2008′ Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but at 72 years of age, it’s unclear whether he will return for a future instalment – particularly as it’s still a few years away.
“When it will happen, I’m not quite sure,” Kennedy said in an interview with Vanity Fair. “We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.”
If Ford doesn’t return to play Indy, discussions have arisen as to who will take the fedora and bullwhip from him. Chris Pratt and Bradley Cooper are both rumoured to be choices, but without even a script, casting decisions are years away at the moment.
However, Ford, who will be reprising his role as Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII; The Force Awakens, has not ruled out stepping back into Indy’s shoes.
