George Lucas revealed some ‘Indiana Jones 4′ information.
- The full name of the film will be kept under wraps until the first trailer is released on Thanksgiving in the US. Since we don’t have Thanksgiving in the UK – we just eat what we want and give thanks to no-one, NO-ONE! – we’ll just call it the last weekend in November.
- Cate Blanchett, who’s role is still unspecified, was Spielberg’s choice. “That’s who my director wanted and I always bow to my director,” said Lucas. “I approved her because she seemed like a good idea”.
- Sean Connery is not yet signed to return as Indy Sr. “We’re still trying,” is all Lucas would say.
- The film will shoot in several top secret locations, including one that features a waterfall. Niagra? The Amazon? Logger’s Leap at Thorpe Park? Who knows?
I for one thought that Sean Connery had signed up for the film. It would be a shame if he’s not in it.
