Ever since Disney acquired the Indiana Jones film rights in 2013, there has been an assumption that some plans for another installment in the franchise would be forthcoming sooner rather than later. Now, producer Kathleen Kennedy has made it quite clear that Disney fully intends to keep Indy’s spirit alive on the big screen.
Speaking with Vanity Fair, Kennedy said that an Indiana Jones movie “will one day be made inside this company,” though she couldn’t give specifics about when exactly the movie would ever come together. According to Kennedy, there’s no script being worked on “but we are talking about it.”
There were recently rumors that Jurassic World star (and erstwhile Burt Macklin) Chris Pratt was being considered for the role made famous by Harrison Ford, but Kennedy did not address whether those rumors have any validity.
Kennedy is, of course, busy with another major franchise revival for Disney—Star Wars, which you can read all of EW’s continuing coverage here before The Force Awakens arrives later this year.
