Disney Reportedly Wants Chris Pratt to Star in ‘Indiana Jones’ Reboot

Back when Disney paid $3 billion to purchase Lucasfilm, most focused on what they could and would do with the 'Star Wars' franchise. But, let's not forget about that other big Lucasfilm franchise: Indiana Jones. If Disney's dropping stacks on stacks for Lucasfilm, you better believe they're going to want their money's worth, and that includes a new series of Indiana Jones movies. Case in point: Disney has reportedly ready to focus on a reboot of the popular character and want 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Chris Pratt to take over the whip from Harrison Ford.

Super Bowl Media Day Has Turned Into A Freak Show [Video]

The original idea for Super Bowl media day was a simple one: it gave the press access to all the players at one time, so they could ask them stupid questions about the big game like, "How do you feel about (opposing team)'s defense?" and the players could give stupid answers.

But it has since turned into a freak show, with players talking about their wife's booty, answering questions with the same phrase over and over and singing along to pop songs, and reporters dressing up like super heroes.

Where did it all go wrong?

There’s Still a Role in the New ‘Ghostbusters’ For Bill Murray

So Sony and director Paul Feig have found their new Ghostbusters: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. This whole idea of an all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot came together after the passing of original series star and co-writer Harold Ramis, when director Ivan Reitman relinquished the franchise’s director’s chair and everyone involved finally gave up on trying to convince stubborn (and probably very wise) Bill Murray to make a second sequel to the original film.
