UPDATE: The latest rumor surrounding the next installment of the Indiana Jones franchise,claiming the 68-year old actor petitioned to George Lucas & Steven Spielberg to hand the Indy mantle to Shia LeBeouf, has been proven false.
Earlier this year, a rumor spread like wildfire that Indiana Jones 5 would center on the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. The story was quickly proven to be false, but it proved that many fans are still hungry for more Indy action; even though the last film in the series (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom on the Crystal Skull) was poorly received.
Gossip site ShowbizSpy is now reporting that the last news about the yet to be titled film has lead actor Harrison Ford requesting his whip-wielding hero meet his demise:
“George especially is resisting the notion but Steven is considering it. Funnily enough Harrison wanted the same for Han Solo in the final Star Wars but George put an end to it. This time he doesn’t have all the say though.”
UPDATE: Ford representatives reached out to The Huffington Post to deny reports of Fords' wish to kill off the Indiana Jones character, calling them false.
