I don't recall Indy is going to lose an eye?

Young Indy - in the beginning of each show they showed really old, one-eyed professor Indy talking about his youthful exploits.

But I don't mind him fighting soviets... though yeah, I understand the fear of seeing a 60+ man whipping people.

73 by the time they begin filming...

Thanks for the info on the eye, Bill.  I haven't seen the Young Indy stuff in forever so it's no wonder I couldn't recall that.

Bradley Cooper would be better.

Like both guys but don't think either is a good fit for this role.

Nobody will be a good fit for the role.  It'd be like recasting Rocky.

It's a shame Hollywood continues to resort to churning out remakes instead of generating quality original content.  At one time they had to guts to give us a Star Wars and a Raiders instead of remakes of Buck Rogers and King Solomon's Mines.  And they earned billions of dollars.  But I guess the risk today is too high for the potential reward.

It isn't a Hollywood decision as much as a Disney decision.  Disney isn't going to let the property sit idle after acquiring it.  A reboot is the only option after the last movie.  Ford can't carry the series anymore and they would be crazy to hand it over to Shia LeBouef.

I think Chris Pratt might be decent in this role.  Less interested in Bradley Cooper.  I thought Pratt did a good job in Guardians of the Galaxy.

I know it feels "wrong" to have someone other than Harrison Ford play Indy, but I think the character is great and the story lines are fairly endless (assuming they're done well).

I look at this kind of like the James Bond series.  Should they have ended the Bond series after Sean Connery stopped being bond in 1971?  I still think he is the best of all the actors to have played Bond, but I've generally enjoyed all of Bond actors and movies.  I think Daniel Craig in particular is very good in that role.

If the Indy movies are well done with a different actor, then I'm all for it.  Harrison Ford was in Indy 4, but that didn't help it be anything other than a really average movie.

I see no reason to not use another actor to play Indy. Indy should be treated just like James Bond or Doctor Who and have lots of new movies and adventures. I'd also be for a young version of Han Solo. Sure Harrison Ford was the best Jack Ryan but I'm not sad that we have Chris Pine doing that role now.

I honestly think Indy stories are very limited.  There really aren't all that many lost magical treasures.  I think even Crystal Skull ran into that problem.  How do you top finding the Ark and the Holy Grail?  Crystal Skull's answer was to give magic powers to extra-dimensional beings, to very poor results.

Maybe he can look for the end of the rainbow next.

I'm sure they could make up all sorts of stuff that could be interesting.  Indy 2 was good enough when they used non-Christian relics. 

Indy 4 was just an uninteresting relic, or at least the story was told poorly.

They could do Egyptian relics, Asian relics, etc.

Heck, look how cool the intro to Raiders was when they were looking for the gold idol that didn't even have mystical powers.  Just a well told mini-adventure to capture an archaeological prize while attempting to not get shot with a poison dart.

I think an Indy storyline following his time in the OSS would be interesting, and get him back to his classic villain enemies, but I think it may work better as a TV series, and less as a movie with a beginning, middle, and end all wrapped into one thing.  Just my thought.

KotCS sucked.  Harrison Ford was Indy throughout, and true to form...  All other aspects of it sucked.  **** those monkeys and giant ants.

I think they had a Indy like TV program in the 90's. The  new movie was a good "Could of been better" movie. These movies are based in the 50's so anything going on would be 50's interest's not present known information. To me Mesoamerican artifacts are far more interesting than African/Middle Eastern relics.

Yeah, the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles...  It was odd though and never felt quite like classic Indy to me.  I think someone non-Lucas might do better with it.  It was ok, it just wasn't what I'd want out of an Indy series I guess.

Indy as an OSS officer would be a lot more along the lines of a James Bond-ish thing, for me though.
