Before you start hurling things at your computer monitor (or phone screen if you’re looking at this news item on your smart phone), this is being reported by UK newspaper and garbage-spouter The Daily Star. So, take it with a massive pinch of salt.
So, according to the Daily Star and their “Hollywood sources”, Twilight heart-throb Robert Pattinson is being lined up by Disney to replace Harrison Ford as the iconic Indiana Jones for the fifth movie in the franchise. According to the “Hollywood sources”, they claim that “Disney is looking at its long-term options for the Indiana Jones franchise. They feel that the series has huge potential on many levels, starting with the films leading to other spin-offs like games which can generate more money than movies. Rob is top of the initial list because he has showed his acting stripes away from Twilight. But the competition will be stiff.”
Just remember, this is coming from The Daily Star.
Indiana Jones first appeared on the big screen in Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981 and went on to star in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in 1989, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in 1989 and the much-maligned Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008. A fifth movie has been talked about for some time with Harrison Ford still heavily involved in reprising his role.
