Those who have continually waited for news of a new Indiana Jones film could be in for a huge shock when the film is finally released.

Disney 'Pacing Themselves' With 'Indiana Jones 5'?

According to Deadline, there is a big chance that Disney will be replacing Harrison Ford for the iconic role of the "swashbuckling archaeologist" -and already have their eyes on a new actor of choice in Chris Pratt.

The report cautions that it is early days and the development of the new film is only slowly beginning, but the plan is to try and develop the franchise further with Pratt in the lead role, instead of Ford. Disney has not officially commented on the possibility.

'Indiana Jones 5' Confirmed

This isn't the first time that rumors have flown suggesting that Ford would be replaced for the potential Indiana Jones 5, as several actor's names have popped up as possible replacements since Disney acquired the rights to the franchise.

Rumors first broke out in March 2014, which claimed that Disney was going to replace Ford with American Sniper star Bradley Cooper, though those reports were quickly shot down. Later reports suggested they were also considering Twilight star Robert Pattinson, who also denied having been approached for the possible film.

This also isn't the first time Pratt's name has popped up as a possible replacement for the iconic role either, with his name popping up as a possible contender for the role back in August, after his success with Guardians of the Galaxy.  At the time, Fandango noted that Pratt's versatility and rising star factor thanks to both Guardians and this year's upcoming Jurassic World made him a great option to replace Ford in a rebooted franchise.

"He's got the good looks, the charisma, the dance moves and a wicked sense of humor," the website said at the time. "He's everything you want in a leading man, really, and his role as Star-Lord in Guardians has already drawn comparisons to a young Harrison Ford."
