Disney deal makes future 'Indiana Jones' films a possibility

We dig seeing Harrison Ford crack his whip, but imagine Jennifer Lawrence as the franchise's new star. Yeah, buddy.

Because taking over Star Wars wasn’t enough, Disney has acquired the marketing and distribution rights to the second-most awesome George Lucas franchise, Indiana Jones, Entertainment Weekly reports.

 

The move cuts a clear path for Disney to make a new film — just what the world needs after the Shia-tastic mess that was The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Disney isn’t talking and says no announcement will be made any time soon, so don’t hold your breath, fellow Harrison Ford swooners.

 

Even if another movie does indeed happen, the big question is who would play Indy. Let’s face it, Ford, though still ruggedly handsome, is seventy-freaking-one, and Shia LeBeouf’s offscreen shenanigans are sort of a turnoff.

 

"Some rumors claimed a fifth Indy movie may be integral in Harrison Ford's negotiations with Disney so that he could appear in Star Wars: Episode VII," MTV reported, "suggesting that we could see at least one more movie with the 71-year-old star cracking the whip."

 

We wouldn’t be opposed, though the rumor mill is swirling with suggestions that a woman take the spotlight. Jennifer Lawrence, anyone? Heck to the yeah.
