Los Angeles - Chris Pratt admits it would "be cool" to play Indiana Jones.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star is reportedly in talks to take on the role of the hunky archaeologist in Disney's upcoming reboot of the adventure franchise but he's confessed that while it would be a great opportunity, no one has approached him as of yet.

Despite admitting that "it'd be cool" to star in a reboot he said: "It's all nothing until it's something, and so far? It's not something."

Check out this trailer of the previous Indiana Jones film:

The 35-year-old actor - who is set to star in the upcoming fourth instalment in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World, later this year - admitted he'd be nervous about following in the footsteps of Harrison Ford, who played the iconic character in the original films.

He told MTV News: "The pressure would come because it's such a great franchise, and you wouldn't want to get it wrong. It would have to be perfect to do it, you know what I mean? So, we'll see. But like I said, it's nothing until it's something."

Meanwhile, 68-year-old filmmaker Steven Spielberg is reportedly keen on returning to direct the reboot, having helmed the original movies, but is said to be waiting to assess the quality of the script.
