Chris Pratt is everywhere.
This undeniable fact was verified further when he was cast for “Jurassic World” and “The Magnificent Seven“, alongside other major movie stars such as Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, and Vincent D’Onofrio. His popularity is not without consequences, as rumours of him starring in “Indiana Jones” and “Ghostbusters” have also surfaced.
Through an interview with GQ, Pratt has personally denied the widely believed-to-be-true speculations.
The actor explained that while no one has ever officially asked him to portray the fedora-and-bullwhip-clad action hero in “Indiana Jones”, “someone high up at Disney did mention to him a while back that they were picking up the rights” for a future reboot of the movie. Pratt did not blatantly reject the subtle offer, but did comment that “his action-adventure card was fairly full”.
As for his rumoured appearance in the Channing Tatum-produced “Ghostbusters” remake, Pratt said:
No one has ever even spoken to me about that.
I’ve even seen Channing a couple times. As far as I know, that’s complete bullshit.
He also denied a purported appearance in “Knight Rider”.
All hope is not lost, because Pratt did not straightforwardly dismiss the possibility of him starring in the movies in the future. In the world of Hollywood, we are sure that things can be worked out if the studios want someone to play a certain role, or an actor shows an interest in taking up an offer.
Pratt was already well known for starring in comedies such as “Delivery Man” and “Bride Wars”, but no one took him seriously until his break in “Guardians of the Galaxy“. His role as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, which drove him to lose almost 30kg and gain a 6-pack in 6 months time, elevated him to leading-man status in Hollywood.
