Hollywood director Steven Spielberg has claimed Harrison Ford is irreplaceable as Indiana Jones

Steven Spielberg thinks Harrison Ford is irreplaceable as Indiana Jones.

The legendary filmmaker - who directed the iconic movie series - has admitted he couldn't imagine another actor playing the role of the fictional archaeologist, despite the likes of Chris Pratt having been linked to the coveted part.

He said: "I don't think anyone could replace Harrison as Indy, I don't think that's ever going to happen."

The 68-year-old director explained that unlike some other iconic film roles, he doesn't think it'd be appropriate if another actor plays Indiana.

Spielberg told Screen Daily: "It's certainly not my intention to ever have another actor step into his shoes in the way there have been many actors that have played Spider-Man or Batman.

"There is only going to be one actor playing Indiana Jones and that's Harrison Ford."

This comes shortly after Harrison admitted he wants to make a fifth 'Indiana Jones' movie.

He said: "Yeah, I'd love to do another Indiana Jones. A character that has a history and a potential, kind of a rollicking good movie ride for the audience, Steven Spielberg as a director - what's not to like?"
