If they reboot the franchise, they need to cast a new actor to play Indiana Jones. Even with Ford cast as a supporting actor and being a mentor for a new guy, it couldn't be called Indiana Jones for any movie after that if Fords character was not in it.

I like Ford but time catches us all.

Look at this picture from a few days ago.

Would you think this guy was 72 years old if you saw him not knowing his age?
His age doesn't matter when he's fit as a fiddle.

He looks like a healthy 72. What I am saying is there is a difference in being cast as a lead actor in a movie at his age which is fine and being cast as a lead actor in an action movie at his age. The writers for another Indy movie could write his character to compensate for his age and physical limitations but would it really be an action movie?

Another factor is there are no immediate movie plans. If they reboot the franchise, how old will he be then?

Jesus Christ this place is so negative. He's not feeble. Why not think of how fun it is to watch Indy get hurt. You feel every punch. It should hurt even more than ever. A good director could capitalize on that. Who cares if he doesn't look like he's in his 40's anymore. He's not dead, he's not crippled, he says he's willing to do it again. I just don't understand how someone can call themself a fan, and be more than happy to throw Ford away like yesterday's trash. Why not be ok with giving the man that is the face of Indiana Jones a chance at finishing strong. Plenty of people didn't like the George Hall version of Indy, so why not have a baddass version of old Indy. What, Indy never gets old? Was he supposed to die right after LC? KOTCS happened. Autumn-year Indy exists as an adventurer. Ready to jump ship and toss him aside because he got older. There's nothing interesting that can be done with him now. At all. It's disrespectful and ignorant.

Yeah, Harrison's career isn't over yet.

If he grew a beard Disney could use him in a Santa Claus movie.

Saying that, if he's fit enough to scramble down a chimney he might just be fit enough to dive under a descending door, outrun a giant boulder, get dragged behind a truck, or go for a refrigerator ride. The options are endless.

And because it's fun to see Indy get hurt it'll be even better this time because the chance of injury is greater.

Go for it Disney. Follow the money!

For me personally, they can make a final movie with Harrison Ford and end the franchise for good. Send the character out with a bang. If and when a final movie is made, how old will Harrison Ford be at that time? This might be the best way to do it.

Another option is to recast the character and reboot the franchise like has been done before with Star Trek as a recent example. James Bond and others have done this as well.

An option they could consider is Harrison passing the torch in a way to another actor in his final movie.

I would like to see the Indiana Jones franchise continue into the future but realize maybe a final movie might be best if the fan base would not accept another actor playing the main character in the future.

Harrison is still Indy

Disney should push hard for a back to back shoot 2 more movies first one ends with a cliffhanger is he alive or dead ? second one ends happily. That will generate over $2-2.5b globally if handled properly, right director, right story etc etc

Disney will struggle to make much more out of the Indy franchise as a reboot will not work at the cinema as most young adults they would target are not going to have much interest in the 1930-40-50s era are they so it all comes back to the same thing Harrison is Indy

Alan Horn/Bob Iger are smart businessmen now Star Wars principle shooting is finished they will behind the scenes be looking closely at Indy sooner or later it will go ahead........

When the Harrison Ford run is completed, maybe Indiana Jones could have a grandson take over which would push the timeline into the present day and be more acceptable for the younger generation as they could identify with the lead character.

In reality, I agree that maybe the franchise should end completely with Harrison Ford without a reboot. Let it end and go off into cinema history.

YES YES YES well said well said. 72 but as the body and stamina of a much younger man.. also this is no old man this is Harry Ford. A good director could really make the the last Indy Harry film brutal and dark not kid friendly. I'd have him get really hurt this time..even have him loose is eye at the end of the film.

The man flys planes goes down the biggest dangerous slide in the world..rides a motor bike with his pals on the weekend...your telling me he can't do it..?
