: : When the new Indiana Jones movie comes out, it will be the last and (probably) the greatest adventure in the franchise (hey, Mr. Ford isn't as young as he's use to). It will also be the last "thinking man" action/archeological adventure movie...maybe. I was wondering, in the next century, who will carry Indy's torch? Obviously Lara Croft and the new Tomb Raider movie comes into mind; I don't think, however, that Lara Croft can handle it, because, even though the it is being made by Paramount (the same company that released the Indiana Jones' movies, duh!), the movie might be made more towards to appeal to teenage testosterone rather than to a "think man" action/archeological adventure. Now, I'm not trying to put Lara Croft down, but all I'm saying is that that's how they (Paramount) might made the movie. Anyways, getting back to the subject here, who do you think will carry on Indy's torch?

: There's no reason to think the next Indiana Jones movie would
: necessarily be the last of the franchise. It is quite reasonable
: that another (younger) actor could be cast as our remarkable hero
: in the same way Roger Moore took up the "torch" for Sean Connery as
: James Bond. For many born in a later generation, Roger Moore is
: considered "the" James Bond (I, being somewhat older, consider Sean
: Connery as "the" James Bond). But it doesn't matter; I like all the
: Bond films and think Pierce Bronsnen (sp?) is a *great* James Bond.
: I think it important who is cast in the role of Indy, but if done
: well, our favorite adventurer could be seen on the silver screen
: for many movies to come. That individual could never replace
: Harrison Ford (in OUR eyes), but could be by those in generations to
: follow (and I'd still enjoy the new adventures).

: Regards,
: Stephen

I'd imagine that a few of us here wouldn't mind picking up the torch... :-)
