Robert Pattinson: set for a new Indy flick?

Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson is reportedly top of Disney's list to star as Indiana Jones in a potential reboot of the franchise.

The Daily Star quotes a source as saying, "Disney is looking at its long-term options for the Indiana Jones franchise.

"They feel that the series has huge potential on many levels, starting with the films leading to other spin-offs like games which can generate more money than movies. Rob is top of the initial list because he has showed his acting stripes away from Twilight. But the competition will be stiff."

Other names on Disney's list reportedly include Pattinson's Twilight co-star Kellan Lutz, Chris Hemsworth, Channing Tatum and Chris Pine.

Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford recently said on French TV that he would love to go back for another outing, "I would love to make another Indiana Jones film . . . It would be great to return to the character, even at my age."
