Harrison Ford Still Thinks Another 'Indiana Jones' Movie is a Good Idea
After the disappointment that was Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, many fans doubted if Harrison Ford would ever pick up the fedora and whip as Indiana Jones again. Though there was a hint that Shia LeBeouf might take up the mantle as the archaeologist's offspring, fans were not too pleased with his character in the film, so that likely won't happen. However, in a recent interview with The Telegraph (via ComingSoon), Ford actually expressed an interest in coming back as Indiana Jones. Thankfully, it's not just a quick "yes" response, and he's actually put some thought into how Indiana Jones can still stick around.
When asked about the potential for the return of Indiana Jones again, Ford said:
"We’ve seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it’s perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn’t necessarily have to kick as much ass. To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do."
While Ford definitely has gotten up there in age, he's still going strong and put on quite a tough front as an aged Indy in the fourth adventure. Of course, Indiana Jones without much of the action is a bit boring. Dare we take the sacrilegious route and say a reboot would be better served for Indiana Jones at this point? Or maybe a feature film take on the adventures of a young Indiana Jones, much like the TV series from years ago, would be interesting? We're not sure, but Steven Spielberg doesn't have a new project lined up after leaving American Sniper yesterday, so maybe another Indiana Jones adventure could happen. Thoughts?
