It looks like that rumor that a new Indiana Jones is in the works was absolutely true!
Speaking with Vanity Fair -- for the magazine's June issue cover story on the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII -- Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed the development of the hotly anticipated Indiana Jones revival.
"[A new Indiana Jones film] will one day be made inside this company," Kennedy confidently declared. "When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it."
So what does this mean for the rumors that Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt might take up the mantel of the iconic archeologist-adventurer? Well, unfortunately, not much.
Kennedy didn't elaborate on possible casting choices, but Disney has made it abundantly clear that they need a script -- or at least a story -- before any leading man decisions can be made.
Kennedy has the pedigree to know what to look for in an Indiana Jones script. After all, she worked closely with director Stephen Spielberg on all previous Indiana Jones films. The project could be in just the right hands.
While we don't know if Pratt will be chosen to rock the iconic fedora in the upcoming reboot, the beloved Parks and Rec star is running with a pack of raptors in the upcoming sequel Jurassic World. Check out the trailer below for a look and the dinosaur-filled action extravaganza, which hits theaters June 12.
