Here's a juicy bit of scoop: Deadline is reporting that Disney wants to reboot "Indiana Jones" -- and wants Chris Pratt in the lead role.

According to the site, the studio bought the rights to the franchise from Paramount in 2013, and is eager to make good on that acquisition with a reboot or remake of some sort. And who better to lead it than Disney/Marvel's newest superstar, Pratt?

Deadline reports that "things are very early," but Disney "has its sights set" on the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star, who they "hope to build the new franchise around." The site cautions that this is nothing but a rumor at this point, though Pratt continuing his already fruitful relationship with Disney makes plenty of sense.

Stay tuned to see if this pans out.

In the meantime, Pratt is currently starring in the seventh and final season of "Parks and Recreation" on NBC, and can be seen this summer in "Jurassic World." He's also rumored to be joining the cast of director Antoine Fuqua's "Magnificent Seven" remake alongside Denzel Washington.
