Producer Frank Marshall has denied Wednesday's rumors that Bradley Cooper would play the title character in an Indiana Jones reboot.

"Due to the ridiculous rumors that keep popping up, like agents pipe dreams, I will stop commenting on our projects until I have real news," Marshall tweeted. "I can only confirm that Katy Perry will NOT be the new Indiana Jones."

The Latino Review said Wednesday that Bradley Cooper topped a list of actors who could replace Harrison Ford in the iconic role of the swashbuckling archeology professor.

But sources have since told both the Huffington Post and /FILM that there's no truth to the story. Producers have no plans to reboot the franchise by replacing Ford.

The fourth Indiana Jones film, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, premiered in 2008, and there's long been discussions of a fifth film.

Ford, 71, told the Telegraph in 2013 that it would be "perfectly appropriate" to reprise his role in another film.
