Harrison Ford has not planned to end the adventure of his beloved character, Indiana Jones, just yet. The actor was said aiming to kill off the fame archeologist in "Indiana Jones V". But soon after the news hit the web, his representatives reach out to The Huffington Post to deny the story, calling it false.

The rumor was first brought into attention by Showbiz Spy. The site quoted an insider as saying, "Harrison thinks it would be good for Indy to die and pass on his hat to his son in the next one."

Ford reportedly had told creator George Lucas and director Steven Spielberg about his idea. "George especially is resisting the notion but Steven is considering it. Funnily enough Harrison wanted the same for Han Solo in the final 'Star Wars' but George put an end to it. This time he doesn't have all the say though," the insider went on gushing on the filmmakers' reactions.

Harrison Ford has portrayed Indiana Jones since the first installment of the adventure film franchise, 1981 "Raiders of the Lost Ark". He was last seen as the adventurer in 2008 "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" in which he starred alongside Shia LaBeouf.

Recently, the younger actor talked about story for the next movie, saying "I got called into Steven's office and he pitched a little bit to me and it sounds crazy, it sounds really cool."

It's so dumb how 'the hat' has turned into an icon. Doesn't anybody remember that Indy lost it in the first movie?

YEah, I really hope he doesn't mean that. It'd be so sad and plus, Indy is supposed to live to be old and still teaching. It would be sad.... very sad. Indiana is a character theat was written well enough and with enough depth to be good at all ages. I love all the stages, from little kid Indy, to YOUNG INDY, 1930's 40's INDY.... Gray and verile Indy (who deserved a better film).... and LESS WE FORGET old yet regal Indy, with the old hat and the cane and the eye patch, still bumbling around the university, telling students unbelievable stories when he catches them trying to sneak into his office..... and they get stranded in a rain storm/power outage. I mean, just because he's in his 80's or 90's and can't go on adventures of the calibure he used to doesn't mean the character should be killed off! How sad for Marion! She waited 10 years, bitter as hell at times...... then another 20 for, what 5 years of marriage and a few stolen kisses with decades in between. NO! Let's keep Indy going, in one form or another. He looks GREAT in Cowoys and ALiens (although, it looks dumb as hell, and maybe that's the point.....?) But I think with adecent script, and less c.g.i. crap and "shock value" made for 12 year olds he'd be okay. Really, they should go back and look at Raiders and stop trying to make these cute films. Camp, ok, in moderation. Not too cute. Not Disney!
