Hollywood seems to be running low on original ideas. That assumption is backed by one reboot after another.
The latest classic, iconic movie being batted around to be redone is "Indiana Jones," a role made famous by Harrison Ford, who did four successful movies, particularly the first three. Talk of a fourth movie began almost immediately as the third one wrapped up, but you have to wonder how much Ford, who is making a cameo in the newest "Star Wars" movie out at the end of 2015, has left in the action tank.
With that, Chris Pratt's name has surfaced as being the ideal candidate to assume the role made famous by Ford. Pratt bulked up and beefed up his resume with his breakout action role in "Guardians of the Galaxy," a surprising hit that showed Pratt can flex his acting and comedic chops with an underscored blend of hero and sarcasm (much like Ford).
Pratt now is being championed as the perfect "Indiana Jones," thus prompting social media and the internet to buzz that he's the man for the job if Ford finds himself passing on the role given his advanced age.
Pratt, indeed, would be more than just an adequate choice. His performance in "Guardians of the Galaxy" almost assuredly gives him at least another few chances to prove that his action movie days aren't behind him and that he has a future in those types of movies and potentially more.
