Insane Rumor Of The Day: Bradley Cooper To Be The New Indiana Jones

Please grab your nearest salt shaker, and liberally sprinkle it both on and around yourself. Why? Because supposedly the character of Indiana Jones may be recast, and supposedly Bradley Cooper is up for the role.

The rumor comes from Latino-Review:

Our ever reliable sources (same folks who told us about Rocket Raccoon) are informing us that while Harrison Ford might still play Indiana Jones in the next film of the franchise, the window of making that happen is getting smaller and smaller.

There is a date and if Indiana Jones 5 is not moving forward by then, the studios are 100% prepared to recast a younger Dr. Jones and ready up a new trilogy.

...

And who just might be one of the actors that the studio is looking at ? The word is that they are looking at several but Bradley Cooper is at the top of the list.

So the rumor here is this: Harrison Ford is still Indiana Jones for the time being, but if somehow George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford don't agree on a story by some point in the near-ish future, then the role may be recast, and Bradley Cooper may be one of the actors Disney asks about the role, and then Bradley Cooper may be interested in taking it.

So let's not start fitting Cooper for fedoras just yet, shall we? I have a strong suspicion that a firm deadline will inspire the original Indiana Jones triumvirate to agree on a script, even if it keeps getting rewritten while they're shooting Indiana Jones V: The Search for Mutt's Gold.
