Those were cheers all around today as Deadline.com floated the rumor that Disney could cast Chris Pratt in its Indiana Jones reboot.
Deadline itself prefaced the juicy news with this: “Here’s one from the helluva good idea department.”
Disney bought the rights to the Indiana Jones franchise from Paramount in 2013 and Deadline’s sources say the studio wants to rebuild the franchise around Pratt.
Can Pratt fill Harrison Ford’s swashbuckling shoes?

Pratt definitely made us laugh on “Parks and Recreation.” And he made lots of fans when he became part of Marvel’s cinematic world in last year’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” and will appear in the sequel, too.
We shall see.
Disney would not comment on the rumor.
