Andy Dwyer evolved into Star-Lord, who in turn evolved into a handsome raptor wrangler in Jurassic World. Based on everything we know about Pokemon, that should be the logical conclusion of Chris Pratt’s evolution. But, apparently the Internet’s collective boyfriend is being eyed for something even greater than a Blastoise or a Charizard or a Machamp. According to reports, Chris Pratt is being eyed by Disney to play Indiana Jones.
Our thoughts exactly, Andy. This may not come as a surprise to many of you; Pratt’s name has been tossed around ever since it was announced that Disney acquired the Indiana Jones rights from Paramount in 2013. Still, the prospect of a Pratt-led Indiana Jones flick had us wondering exactly what the future might hold. With a number of unproduced Indiana Jones scripts already floating around out there in the ether (like Frank Darabont’s Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods and other, crazier titles like Indiana Jones and the Saucer Men From Mars), there is plenty of material to be mined. So, where would a film like this fall within the larger Indiana Jones canon?
Well, ask and ye shall receive. Join Jessica Chobot as she explains exactly what may be in store for Chris Pratt when he picks up the iconic whip and fedora, whether or not it will be a hard reboot of the series, and much more.
