Chris Pratt: the new Indy?

There's been feverish speculation over who will be donning the leathery fedora of Harrison Ford in the planned Disney remake of the Indiana Jones films - but according to US entertainment website Deadline.com, the new favourite to play the legendary daredevil archeologist is none other than Chris Pratt.

Twilight actor Robert Pattinson previously dismissed rumours linking him to the job last summer, while Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper's name has also been put forward as a favourite to tackle the George Lucas-created character, but it seems that the role could be Mr Pratt's to lose - or turn down.

Movie studio bosses are working with Star Trek reboot director J.J. Abrams to relaunch the franchise.The first three films in the series - Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade became box office hits in the 1980s, while a fourth instalment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was released in 2008 with Shia LaBeouf as Ford's co-star. All four movies were directed by Steven Spielberg.
