VARIETY: No writer, no clue on Spielberg and Pratt has no idea is even in the mix. While studio likes they also like other actors like Bradley Cooper and Chris Hemsworth aka the usual suspects.

HOLLYWOOD LIFE: Harrison would still like to be Indiana Jones and work with Steven and George one more time. He understands that change happens and has nothing against Chris at all. If they do it and go the direction of Chris, Harrison would like to pass the torch and make the movie with him instead of without him. He would want it to be a thing where he is in the Sean Connery role and Chris would be the son, or Chris would be a flashback to younger Indiana adventures.

Chris Pratt: "Like, dude, no. That's the problem. No, I donít know, I might be, I just got back from being in the woods killing a bunch of stuff. So maybe uh, maybe it is. This is very jarring. I had no idea. The is the first I'm hearing of it. That's right. Yeah."

Aaron Sorkin: "Yeah, I don't know if I'd be any good at it, but I'd love it. I love Indiana Jones movies. I haven't [done action], you know. I'd love to give it a try one day. Running and talking."

February 23, 2015
Chris Pratt: "Itís all nothing until itís something, and so far, itís not something. I don't think it's overwhelming to contemplate. I don't know, it'll be, it'd be cool. No one's called me, you know. There's a lot of talk about it. The pressure would come just because it's such a great franchise. You wouldn't want to get it wrong. For me it would have to be perfect to do it, you know what I mean? So, weíll see, but like I said, itís nothing until itís something. But when I find out you're going to be the first to know. I'm going to text you."

E! ONLINE: Harrison was driving his Tesla and seemed to be in good spirits. He was wearing a hat so there weren't any visible signs of wounds on his head. He was by himself but able to drive his car normally. He arrived at Steven Spielberg's house in the late afternoon and went straight through the gate. He was there for many hours and stayed all through the evening. He went home after 10 p.m.

April 1, 2015
Frank Marshall: "Harrison is at home and heís up and about. I talked to him yesterday and heís doing really well. Heís pretty banged up, but heís recovering remarkably. He wants to play tennis. Thatís the thing you would expect him to do in a movie, but he did it in real life! Heís a really good pilot. Iíve talked to a lot of pilots who said that was a hell of a landing and he did everything correct in that situation. He made an incredible landing, to his credit. He is, after all, Indiana Jones."

James Gunn said [Pratt as Indy] would be very cool, but ended by saying that rumor "seemed like complete bullshit."

April 24, 2015
Chris Pratt: "Well it's sacred territory, that's for sure. Just like Jurassic is to me. I've watched these movies as a kid and they were a big part of my fabric and my makeup. It would be thrilling but at the same time theres a big responsibility to not screw that up. I don't think I would just blindly go into it with enthusiasm I think I'd be pretty critical from the beginning, it would have to be perfect in order to do it. I think that's probably why it's taken so long for them to want to do another reboot after number four. Because that's sacred territory. The fans, they want to protect that, and rightfully so because its really important. I think it would be thrilling, but I'm kind of like the people who go visit Jurassic World. It needs to be pretty damn perfect for me to get excited."

Kathleen Kennedy: "[It] will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, Iím not quite sure. We havenít started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it."
