Chris Pratt's Chance Of Being Indiana Jones Ruined


Chris Pratt INDIANA JONES Ty Simpkins Steven Spielberg

Chris Pratt believes his 'Jurassic World' co-star has ruined his chances of playing INDIANA JONES.

The 35-year-old actor has been hotly-tipped to star as the protagonist in a reboot of the iconic franchise, but revealed an awkward conversation with 13-year-old actor Ty Simpkins on the set of the 'Jurassic Park' sequel may have put director Steven Spielberg off offering him the role.

Recalling the conversation, he explained to The Sunday Times newspaper: ''Ty said, 'Chris, are you going to audition for Indiana Jones?' I was, like, 'Oh, I don't know, buddy.' Steven's right there, and Ty is oblivious, this sweet-natured kid, and he goes, 'Yeah, I don't really see it.' I was, like, 'Oh, man, you little s**t! Come on! At least tell him you think it would work.'''

Couple Celebrate 21-years Of Marriage With An Indiana Jones Portrait

Ken Thomas and Vicki Thomas - "It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage," is the perfect INDIANA JONES quote to sum up this celebratory portrait of Ken Thomas and his wife Vicki. Taking the photo to commemorate their 21-one-year marriage, Ken and Vicki decided to dress up as Indiana Jones and his father Professor Harry Jones. Together they recreated a moment from the unforgettable motorcycle escape scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Ken, who lives in western North Carolina with his wife, explains, "First of all, you should understand the image wasn't really meant to be some kind of 'viral' thing. The intended target audience was our friends on Facebook. Every year on our anniversary we post some kind of portrait. In the past we've always done something romantic or serious but we thought this year we'd try doing something funny. "The idea for the image itself kind of started with the motorcycle. The one we're sitting on in the photo is a 2014 Ural Gear-Up. I bought it a couple of months ago. It's very close to the one that Indy and Professor Jones were riding in the chase scene in The Last Crusade, so recreating a scene from the movie seemed like a good fit for the anniversary shot. "I'm a history buff and an outdoorsman and my friends tease me about being a low-budget Indiana Jones, so our original plan was to have me play Indy, but we ended up thinking it would be funnier if we flipped it around and had her play Indy instead. We decided to call it '21 Years of Adventure' because we doing a lot of hiking, kayaking, fishing, hunting, that sort of thing - and our friends think of us as a pretty adventurous pair. "We posted the photo on our 21st anniversary, and it was pretty popular - 300 likes, which is a lot for one of my photos. Then I posted it to the Facebook page of the company that made the motorcycle, and they shared it, and it started to go a little viral from there. Over 1000 likes and 100 shares, then they put it on their blog and in their newsletter. That was pr - Boone, North Carolina, United Kingdom - Monday 11th August 2014

Bradley Cooper Is NOT The New Indiana Jones. Got That, Internet?


Bradley Cooper Harrison Ford INDIANA JONES Disney

On Wednesday (March 26, 2014) a new report on the Latino Review suggested Disney was ready to go ahead with a new INDIANA JONES movie. Not too much of a surprise you may have thought, and you'd be right, a fifth Indie movie has been rumored for a couple of years. Only, this report suggested the studio was ready to replace Harrison Ford with Bradley Cooper.

The story also suggested Frank Darabont - who apparently wrote a far better script for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull than the one produced - had pitched a new idea for a new movie.

Lucille Ball's signature polka-dot dress and props from INDIANA JONES & The Temple Of Doom have smashed expectations at a Hollywood auction.

Indiana Jones Mystery Package Sent To University Of Chicago


George Lucas Harrison Ford Steven Spielberg INDIANA JONES

The University of Chicago has a mystery on its hands, a mystery involving INDIANA JONES of all people, after a surprise package was delivered to the University addressed to the fictional archeologist/adventurer.

According to the university’s admissions department Tumblr page, a package arrived at the university this Wednesday (Dec 12) addressed to one Henry Walton Jones Jr - the 'real' name of the character portrayed by Harrison Ford in the hugely successful film franchise. Unsure of what to do with the mystery package, the student office worker, whose job it was to deal with the it, set it aside until today when someone realized it wasn’t intended for any actual student or faculty member, but a fictional character who once enrolled at the University of Chicago: Indiana Jones.

When the seal was finally cracked and the contents were laid bare, the mystery refused to go away still. The Tumblr page goes on to describe the contents, with pictures, and states that inside was an apparently handmade re-creation of Abner Ravenwood’s diary, Abner Ravenwood being Jones' professor at the university in the 1920's, for those unfamiliar with the Indiana Jones films. It was while working with Ravenwood that Indi first gained knowledge of the Ark of the Covenant, which in turn set in motion the story of Raiders of the Lost Ark, George Lucas/Steven Spielberg’s landmark 1981 film and first in the series.
