'Indiana Jones 5' Movie News: Harrison Ford Opens Up About Reprising Character, 'What's Not To Like?' [PHOTO]
Rumors circulated like wildfire over the last year and a half that a fifth Indiana Jones movie wouldn't include him, but Harrison Ford has every intention of reprising the iconic character if the film is ever made.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 73-year-old actor proved he has no plans to slow things down with his action movie career, because not only does he still have other projects lined up within the Star Wars franchise as Han Solo, but he admits he'd love to revisit his famous archaeologist once more.
"Oh, yeah. Yeah. I'd love to do another Indiana Jones," he said. "A character that has a history and a potential, kind of rollicking good movie ride for the audience, Steven Spielberg as a director-what's not to like?"
Ford has never shied away from admitting he prefers portraying Jones to Solo, but that didn't stop the wildfire of rumors that he was not going to return for the fifth installment of the franchise if it was made, mainly because of his age.
Rumors claimed that Disney, which now owns the rights to the franchise, wasn't keen on letting him reprise the role because he was much older than he was the last time he portrayed the character, in 2008's Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which was released when he was 65.
Among the names that were floated around to be replacing him were Bradley Cooper, Robert Pattinson and most recently, Chris Pratt.
