The Pros and Cons of Killing Indiana Jones

Apparently a retirement home is just not good enough for the treasure hunter who wants everything in museums. “Sources” are telling ShowbizSpy that Harrison Ford wants Indiana Jones to die in the next installment of the franchise.

There was never much doubt that this would be the last round up for Ford, especially with Shia Labeouf waiting in the wings to take over as his son, but death seems a bit extreme. After all, there must be an adjunct professor position out there waiting for him.

It may seem fatalistic, but it’s also important to look at why killing him off might be a good thing. Or why it might be completely moronic.

The Cons

It’s highly unlikely that they’ll kill him off, especially since it’s just a rumor that Ford even suggested it. However, it does raise an interesting question.

Can you imagine the death of Indiana Jones working?
