Phoebe Waller-Bridge may flip the script on Indiana Jones.

The English actress, 37, could be replacing Harrison Ford as the lead in the fifth installment of the “Indiana Jones” franchise, which is set to hit theaters next summer, according to The Daily Mail.

Sources told the outlet that producer Kathleen Kennedy was looking to make “big” changes — which could include replacing the lead character with a woman.

“It would be a huge statement, and a great role for Phoebe,” one insider told the Mail.

It was announced earlier this year that the “Fleabag” star had been cast opposite 79-year-old Ford in the film, the name of which has not yet been revealed.

The iconic franchise has starred Ford as the lead since the first film, “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” was released in 1981.

It’s not clear who Waller-Bridge’s will portray in the upcoming movie, but a source told the Mail, “The gossip on the set is that this character will slot into the leading role.”

The project has long been delayed, and was pushed off again this summer after Ford injured his shoulder while shooting a fight scene.
