March 26 (UPI) -- Bradley Cooper may replace Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in future Indiana Jones movies.

A source tells the Latino Review that the window for Ford to reprise his role as Indy is getting smaller and smaller. The studio is rumored to be ready to recast the character if work on the film lags behind.

Walt Disney Studio chairman Alan Horn had confirmed a fifth film in December 2013, but said the next feature won't be made for two to three more years.

Bradley Cooper is said to be the studio's number one choice to replace Ford. The series would undergo a reboot and Cooper would star in a brand new trilogy of movies.

The 71-year-old Ford has said in the past that he thinks "it's perfectly appropriate" if he continues to portray Indy.

"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time," Ford told The Telegraph in August 2013. "It's...okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass."

"To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do."

Those who would like to see Ford continue on in the role shouldn't give up hope yet. A different source tells Slash Film that the re-casting rumors are untrue.
