Ever since George Lucas' "Indiana Jones" franchise was acquire by Disney in 2012, rumors about a fifth film became rampant.

While the giant studio company already released it's plan with the "Star Wars" franchise, they have yet to announce any details about Harrison Ford's titular movie.

However, Deadline exclusively reported that an "Indiana Jones 5" movie is most probably on its way and that Disney is just ironing important details about the planned sequel.

Harrison Ford is reportedly no longer involved in the next Indy film and rumor has it that "Jurassic World" star Chris Pratt is the main choice to take over the role.

While, this has yet to be confirmed, TMZ's cameraman had a chance to speak with the 35-year-old comedian and asked if he's in talks for "Indiana Jones 5" already.

"We can't assume it's confirmed yet, but you are in talks right?" TMZ cameraman asked Pratt.

"I do...No. That's the problem... I don't know, I might be, I just got back from the woods killing a bunch of stuff," he confusedly answered the question.

While he either confirmed or denied the rumors of his involvement, speculations of Pratt being the next Indy immediately sparked.

According to previous reports, Disney is eyeing on an actor who could play the role of Indiana Jones for a long time.

"Regarding Harrison Ford, two more Indiana Jones features are in the negotiation stages as per Ford's contract clause on 'Star Wars,' which is the primary reason he didn't 'publicly' or 'privately' commit, or so I'm told," a source told MarketSaw back in February last year.

In addition to Chris Pratt, Robert Pattinson and Bradley Cooper were also linked in "Indiana Jones 5" movie.

"Disney is looking at its long-term options for the 'Indiana Jones' franchise," a source told Showbizspy. "They feel that the series has huge potential on many levels, starting with the films leading to other spin-offs like games which can generate more money than movies." 

"Rob is top of the initial list because he has showed his acting stripes away from Twilight. But the competition will be stiff."
