I’m sure with his vast wealth treatment and putting his feet up are easily available options.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Harrison Ford literally “broke his leg” at 71 while filming SW:TheForceAwakens in 2014. - More indications, this franchise, like Star Wars, should have just ended with the first 3 films.

3 ( +7 / -4 )

The motion-capture ‘dots’ on the ‘leaked’ set photos indicate they’ll trying to de-age him. - Disney, Amblin, etc need to stop with the “cash grabs’ and come up with some new ideas.

And Harrison Ford - He just needs to retire from ‘action roles’ and flying planes before he injures himself again

… or worse, injures or kills someone else.

A bit of a disgrace putting a 78 year old man in fight scenes in the first place. He is too old for that crud. Let him be the brains and some sidekick the brawn.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

I'll wait for Indiana Jones 15.

What happened to Young Indiana Jones as a vehicle to milk this franchise

Apparently @Peter14 8:13am, that’s the current script ‘leak’: That ‘Fleabag’ actress will be handed ‘the fedora & whip’.

Let’s keep in mind, “Indiana” like “Trinity, Cheyenne, etc.” can be used for guys or girls,

or dogs:

- “Indiana?… We named the dog ‘Indiana’! ”

quoted from the late, great Sean Connery as Prof. Henry Jones in

Indiana Jones and *The Last Crusade (1989), *the definitive “FINAL chapter” of the Indiana Jones franchise!

Another great Harrison Ford quote as Prof. Henry Walton Jones, Jr

aka: “Junior”:

- “I’ve got a lot of fond memories of that dog.”

aka: The one & only “Indiana Jones”

He's one of the most successful hams ever to make it big in the acting world. Very wooden scenery chewer.

I remember Shia LaBeouf was in the last one and seemed like he was being groomed to be the next Indy Jones. He fell off though.

Indy 4 was a disgrace. Hopefully 5 will be better. On balance, I'd rather have a film than not.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

River Phoenix passed away @NOMI 1:39pm, before Spielberg could do his IJ prequels.

The Young Indiana TV show didn’t get the ABC?Disney ratings they expected.

And ‘Yes’, Shia Labeouf “fell off” the wagon’, struggled with alcohol & rumored sexual addiction. He’s has since “ballooned out”, perhaps all to ‘shed’, not weight, but his former Disney child-star, post-Transformers nerdy image. -

He’s currently rumored to be ‘in talks’ to replace Johnny Depp as a lead in the POTC franchise but Disney probably won’t go for it. - Wishing him well from now.

Btw: Pirates of the Caribbean *IS** an original *Disney concept and franchise! - Have at it, Hollywood!

Perhaps we now need some middle-aged, yet still very-attractive Kiera Knightly, Penelope Cruz or Selma Hayek?

(Q: Is Angelina Jolie past the Hollywood’s unwritten yet, ‘hypocritically enforced’ threshold for females?)

Maybe Disney could ‘subvert our expectations’ further by having Ryan Johnson direct ‘a’ Harrison Ford’, of course, ‘against ‘type’, as say “a grizzly old pirate” ?

They could even CGI both, his dog and his action sequences!

That sounds pretty great, actually. Johnson is a fantastic director.

That older actors should be protected is understandable, but some actors want to friggin' ACT. I suppose it's like a drug. Hope he recovers soon - I'm no spring chicken so know how long this could take.

By the time the idea came up Harrison Ford was too old to play young Indiana, and no one else can do Indiana like Ford does.

Any film Harrison Ford appears in is a must-see for me, even Star Wars.

Get well soon, Indy.

That’s great @ExpSister 2:20pm. What about Ford’s co-stars, the rest of the aforementioned ‘proposed’ female cast; the unwritten cut-off’ for females, etc?

and, the dog?

At least @Laguna 2:23pm took his real dog amping in the wilderness (great story, btw)

Should have retired a long time ago.

Him and Silvester Stallone simply have no awareness of their reality, their time for quitting doing action movies passed many years ago. At this point I just feel sorry for him trying to still live the dream of being an action hero.

5???, Really ?????...

Indy 4 was a disgrace. Hopefully 5 will be better. 

There was too long of a time gap between 3 and 4. That was one factor in 4's suckability.

Why not? Those women are very attractive and sexy today. Besides, one of those films featured the very lovely Keith Richards.

Yes @starpunk, but Disney’s done with Depp because someone ‘poo poo’ed the idea of ever ‘getting in bed with him’ (or, her) again, from what we’ve ‘Heard’. (Hollywood has many ‘strange bedfellows’, but that one was just ‘foul’.)- Yes, any of the 3 lovely ladies suggested would be great.

Oh! Btw: Here’s a ‘rare’ shot of the elder Han Solo meeting Captain Jack Sparrow:
