Chris Pratt sets the record straight about those Indiana Jones rumours

2015-05-21 16:00

Los Angeles - Chris Pratt hasn't been contacted by anyone about starring in the new Indiana Jones movie - yet.

The 35-year-old actor is aware a new installment in the action franchise is being made by Disney but he is adamant he's not spoken to anyone about taking on the lead role in the series - which stars Harrison Ford.

Revealing how the rumours first impacted his life, he told GQ magazine: "I came home from a ranch, and then there was paparazzi asking me about it and people asking me to sign Indiana Jones pictures and Indiana Jones hats."

Following the success of Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy, Pratt has also been linked to the proposed new Ghosbusters film, which is different to the all-female spin-off.

But Pratt claims the speculation about the film, which Channing Tatum is also wanted for, is "complete" crap.
He said: "No one has ever even spoken to me about that. Never. I've even seen Channing a couple times. As far as I know, that's complete bullshit."

Pratt - who is married to The House Bunny actress Anna Faris - is definitely committed to reprising his role as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and more movies beyond that sequel.

He said: "I'm tied to doing three more, or five more, Guardians of the Galaxy or whatever it is, you know, two more Guardians... plus another couple..."

Pratt will next be seen in Jurassic World, which is released on 12 June.
