On the heels of George Lucas's announcement that Shia LaBeouf will not be taking over the starring role in any future "Indiana Jones" movies, Harrison Ford has decided to add his two cents into the fray.
Sparked by the last scene in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" where LaBeouf's character, Mutt Williams, picks up the famous fedora worn by Ford, rumors have been circling that the imagery signaled a changing of the guard for the iconic film franchise.
Harrison Ford still insists otherwise, "No, that's never been (the idea)... I think it just doesn't work that way. And there's definitely a distinction between passing the fedora and someone picking it up."
Lucas himself added fuel to the fire by mentioning the possibility of Indiana Jones passing the baton onto his son in an interview back in May during a PR event for "Crystal Skull".
"I have an idea to make Shia the lead character next time and have Harrison come back like Sean Connery did in the last movie," Lucas said.
Lucas would later go back on those remarks, "Harrison Ford is Indiana Jones. If it was Mutt Williams it would be Mutt Williams and the Search for Elvis or something."
