Robert Pattinson For Indiana Jones?

It wasn’t so long ago that rumours were flying around that Bradley Cooper was the man Disney wanted to head-up a new incarnation of Indiana Jones but like a cat with a piece of string Hollywood is a fickly creature. The rumour now has it that Disney has drawn up an Indiana Jones casting list and top of that list is Twilight star Robert Pattinson.

Of course thanks to his Twilight credentials Pattinson does come with a certain box office guarantee but when has the whip-cracking hero ever needed that? Other names on the list include Pattinson’s Twilight co-star Kellan Lutz, Captain Kirk himself Chris Pine and Magic Mike’s Channing Tatum. Of all those names Pine would seem to be the best fit and has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to have Harrison Ford’s charisma as well as action-chops. It would also seem serendipitous given he’s recently followed in Ford’s footsteps with the Jack Ryan franchise.

There is one quite large caveat to all this and that is Harrison Ford himself who recently told Graham Norton that he would play Indiana again in “A New York Minute” and went on to say that there is no rule that states Indiana can’t be an old man and still questing away. Disney may have other ideas though because they are rumoured to want to shoot back-to-back films to re-launch the franchise as early as 2016. That could pose problems for a certain Mr. Ford if he is heavily involved with another of his iconic roles as Han Solo in the new Star Wars films.

So what do you think? Is R-Pattz the man to fill the fedora? Source – The Sun

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
