Harrison Ford Denies Wanting to Kill Off Indiana Jones in Next Film

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.

I didn't mind Shia in the last one, but I don't think he needs to be the center of attention in this franchise.

Thank the stars. Ford hasn't become senile quite yet.

But are we 100% that he wasn't petitioning to give Indy's son an early send off? Tongue
