    More On Connery's Decision re: "Indy 4"

    More info on the subject originally introduced in a previous post http://www.micechat.com/forums/showt...t=48898&page=4:

    The next "Indiana Jones" flick will not be another father-son affair. Sean Connery says he will not return to play dad to Harrison Ford's globe-trotting adventurer Indy. Connery played Indy's father in 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," the third installment of the franchise directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by George Lucas.
    "I get asked the question so often, I thought it best to make an announcement," Connery, 76, said in a statement posted Thursday on Lucasfilm's "Indiana Jones" Web site. "I thought long and hard about it, and if anything could have pulled me out of retirement it would have been an `Indiana Jones' film."
    "I love working with Steven and George, and it goes without saying that it is an honor to have Harrison as my son," he said. "But in the end, retirement is just too damned much fun."
    The fourth "Indiana Jones" film, not yet titled, is again directed by Spielberg and produced by Lucas. Shooting begins the week of Monday, June 18, at an undisclosed U.S. location, and the movie is due out May 22, 2008.
    Lucasfilm also announced Thursday that Cate Blanchett, John Hurt and Ray Winstone will be joining the cast, which along with Ford, includes Shia LaBeouf.
    Connery who played the bookish Henry Jones Sr. in "The Last Crusade" and affectionately called his son "Junior" did have some words for the 64-year-old Ford.
    "I do, however, have one bit of advice for Junior: Demand that the critters be digital, the cliffs be low, and for goodness sake keep that whip by your side at all times in case you need to escape from the stunt coordinator!" Connery said. "This is a remarkable cast, and I can only say, `Break a leg, everyone.'"
    Lucas and Spielberg have been working with a variety of screenwriters over the years on the long-awaited sequel. The filmmakers have kept the story under wraps, with Lucas, Spielberg and Ford saying in interviews only that it would take place sometime after World War II. The first three movies were set in the mid- to late 1930s.
    Among speculation the filmmakers have yet to confirm or deny is whether Karen Allen, Indy's romantic interest in 1981's "Raiders of the Lost Ark," might return. There also have been rumors that Kate Capshaw Spielberg's wife and Indy's love interest in 1984's "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" might appear in the fourth film.
    Lucas and Spielberg are maintaining tight secrecy because details on story and casting are still being worked out and because they want to save some surprises for audiences, said Spielberg spokesman Marvin Levy.
    "This is the closest to the vest I've seen. Does Indy wear a vest?" Levy said. "We have more speculation about a number of people than anything I have ever encountered."

    I am sorry to hear that Sean Connery is out but it would be great if Karen Allen was in. She was my favorite of Indiana's "women".

    Darn, I was hoping to hear him say "junior" a few more times. Oh well, still looking forward to Indy 4. Hmm, wonder when we find out the title?

    Thank goodness! I'm so done with that franchise. Keep hoping others will bow out. I thought the third movie was a great way to end it. It was done, put a fork in it.

    Now Harrison Ford needs to bow out. I swear Calista is a sucubus or something, because once he got together with her it looked like someone had LITERALLY drained the life outta him.

    Seriously. He's soooo not sexy anymore. Or interesting. I wish they wouldn't mess with the franchise anymore. Let it lie.

    I thought Sean Connery had retired for acting several years ago anyway.

    I don't know. My honey thought he was sexy, interesting, and in great spirits at the Taurus Awards last week:



    In fact...she turned to me and said "He's several years older than you and he looks that good. What happened to you?"

    I wanted to shoot back "Well...perhaps it's because he married a gal 22 years younger than he is!"

    But I didn't just fall off the turnip truck. So instead I shrugged, smiled, and kept my mouth shut.

    I'm at the AFI Tribute to Al Pacino right now and Sean Connery is here giving a speech about Pacino. I'm glad this news broke because I would have looked like a fool asking him about it!
