Phoebe Waller Bridge can replace Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones after starring with him in next year’s movie
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is advised to replace veteran actors as a female version of a fictional archeology professor in the adventure film franchise.
She will star in Indiana Jones’ companion next year on Harrison Ford’s last outing as a knotty adventurer.
Today, Phoebe Waller-Bridge is advised to replace veteran actors as a female version of a fictional archeology professor in the adventure film franchise.
The movie industry is flooded with rumors that Fleabag stars will take over as India’s main adventurer. She will be the first female lead since the Disney movie began in 1981 with the Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Insiders claim that Hollywood producer Kathleen Kennedy behind the franchise is keen to make bigger changes than switching the protagonist to a woman.
One said: “It’s a huge statement and will play a big role for Phoebe.”
Kennedy’s spokesman declined to comment on the rumors.
Others in the industry have questioned the proposal, but rumors continue that Ms. Wallerbridge will be the future star of the role.
None of the representatives of the versatile British and American actresses and writers answered questions about the possibilities of new roles.
Disney didn’t respond when given the opportunity to comment.
In July, the 36-year-old star shot the rooftop scene of a fifth movie whose title hasn’t been released yet, along with American co-star Boyd Holbrook in Glasgow city centre.

The character she plays is not detailed, but it is understood that Ms. Wallerbridge in a maroon corduroy jacket and blue trousers plays an Indiana Jones assistant.
Sources said: “The gossip of the set is that this character will be the protagonist.”
In 2019, Waller Bridge, who won the Golden Globe Award twice, co-wrote the script for the 25th James Bond movie No Time to Die with Neil Purvis, Robert Wade, and Cary Joji Fukunaga.
The boss said she was brought in to showcase “more humor and quirky writing,” which she reported earned £ 22m in less than two years.
