A recent rumor stated that Disney LucasFilm might be going the James Bond route with Indiana Jones, and that Bradley Cooper was being eyed to take over from Harrison Ford.
The same rumor also stated that Frank Darabont pitched an idea for the new Indiana Jones.
Turns out it isn’t true as a website, Frank Daramont and producer Frank Marshall shoot the Indiana Jones Bradley Cooper rumors down.
SlashFilm has it from a “high-placing” source that the rumors are not true.
Likewise, producer Frank Marshall took to Twitter to offer the following.
Due to the ridiculous rumors that keep popping up, like agents pipe dreams, I will stop commenting on our projects until I have real news.

And Frank Darabont told AICN:
This is an internet rumor with not a shred of truth in it. I have not pitched an idea for a proposed Indiana Jones movie, nor has anybody approached me with such an idea. The inaccurate report on Latino Review was the first I’d heard of it.
As we mentioned, the rumors contradict an earlier report that stated Harrison Ford’s Star Wars contract includes more Indiana Jones, which means he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
