Chris Pratt is wanted to star in a new 'Indiana Jones' movie.

The 35-year-old star is being lined up by Disney - which bought the rights to the popular franchise from Paramount in 2013 - to appear in the role of the archaeologist, who was previously played by Harrison Ford.

Although plans for the film are at an early stage, Deadline claims Pratt is seen by the studio as an ideal candidate for the part, having impressed as a leading man in Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy', which was released last year.

Meanwhile, Pratt and fellow Hollywood star Chris Evans - who stars as Captain America in the Marvel films - recently revealed they have a wager placed on the outcome of the Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots on February 1.

The pair engaged in a friendly war of words on Twitter and have agreed to visit a children's hospital in costume if their team loses.

Pratt, a Seahawks fan who plays Star-Lord in 'Guardians of the Galaxy', tweeted: ''OK. Seahawks win you fly yourself to Seattle, visit @seattlechildren hospital as Captain America, waving the 12th man flag.''

Evans, a Patriots fan, accepted the challenge, insisting his team would win the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

He said: ''I accept. And when the Patriots humiliate your seachickens, I expect Star-Lord to arrive at @chris_haven in a Brady jersey.''
