SFX - - Red Alert -

There’s a par­al­lel world where Shia LaBeouf in­her­ited Har­ri­son Ford’s fe­dora at the close of In­di­ana Jones And The King­dom Of The Crys­tal Skull. But that world ended in fire, so it need not con­cern us here. In this in­fin­itely more agree­able re­al­ity Chris Pratt is the man Dis­ney is re­port­edly eye­ing to pick up the bat­tered hat, toplin­ing a re­booted se­ries of Indy ad­ven­tures that would re­turn the snake- fear­ing ar­chae­ol­o­gist to his pulp roots in the 1930s. Hmm. Some­how we can’t help think­ing that the Guardians Of The Galaxy and Juras­sic World star has been bred in a se­cret Dis­ney gene lab lo­cated be­neath Space Moun­tain for this very pur­pose. Con­fronting the ru­mours, Pratt him­self only says that the prospect of crack­ing the bull­whip in a fresh se­ries of es­capades would be an “awe­some op­por­tu­nity”. And hey, that’s not a de­nial, right? File this one un­der Not A Bad Idea, Ac­tu­ally.
