Chris Pratt has been a frequent fixture on the big screen, holding starring roles in “Jurassic World” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

And for those who have followed his demeanor, there is no doubt that Pratt deserves consideration to succeed Harrison Ford as the next “Indiana Jones.”

Unfortunately, the 43-year-old actor is not interested in doing so. And the reason behind that is that he is holding Ford’s alleged claim that “Indiana Jones” will die with him.

Pratt made the comments in an interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

"All I know is I once saw a quote from Harrison Ford, and I don't even know if it was really him, but it was enough to scare me, that was like, 'When I die, Indiana Jones dies.' And I'm like, 'Am I gonna get haunted by the ghost of Harrison Ford one day when he dies if I play…?'" Pratt said.

For now, Ford remains the main star of the said film. The 80-year-old actor is set to appear for the fifth time in James Mangold’s upcoming installment that is set to be released in 2023, reported.

As far as Pratt being unsure about Ford saying that “Indiana Jones” would die with him, the decorated actor did say so. Ford made the comments in 2019 on the Today show.

"Don't you get it? I'm Indiana Jones. When I'm gone, he's gone. It's easy," Ford said at the time.

Regardless, Pratt already has his hands full. He has a busy schedule and already appeared in two flicks in 2022. These were “Jurassic World Dominion” and “Thor: Love and Thunder.”

So far for 2023, his only actual starring role will be in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.” There are also allegedly two untitled films where he will take part although it will only be his voice that will be needed.
