    Good news for Indy fans as his dad is back

    Director Steven Spielberg has confirmed that Sir Sean Connery will be back for the new Indiana Jones film.

    Spielberg says Connery will reprise his role as Indy's father "for a few scenes" in the fourth Indy film, which finally seems to be ‘in production’ more than 10 years after it was first suggested and a mere 14 after the last film.

    Spielberg says he's trying to get all of Indy's former love interests into the film as well. He says he hopes to get Karen Allen, who played Marion in Raiders Of The Lost Ark, back for "one soundbite".

    "There are other Indy girls who had smaller roles who will come back," he tells www.suntimes.com.

    Spielberg is less sure his real-life wife, Kate Capshaw, will get to reprise her role as Willie Scott from Temple Of Doom. "Frank Darabont, who is writing the script, called me and said, 'I'm not sure we can work her into the script too’.”

    Darabont wrote and directed The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption and has also penned several episodes of The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones TV series . He got the job after rumours that M Night Shyamalan or Tom Stoppard was going to write the script.

    Filming is due to begin in 2004 with a release date pencilled in for July 2005. Harrison Ford will once again play the daring archaeologist despite the fact that when filming begins in 2004 he will be 62. Then again Connery will be 74, which means there’s only a 12-year age gap between ‘father’ and ‘son’. Only in the movies!

    John Rhys-Davies, fresh from his double role in The Two Towers as Gimli and the voice of Treebeard, is also believed to be returning as Sallah. There are also Internet rumours that Colin Hanks, son of Spielberg’s pal Tom Hanks, may have a role and that Ford’s girlfriend Callista Flockhart could be on board too, but neither rumour has been confirmed.

    Loads of things in there that I just cannot believe;

    firstly it's been 14 years since the last crusade!!:eek: :eek:

    second that Darabont had anything to do with the dullest TV series in history (young Indy)

    thirdly that there is only twelve years between Ford and Connery!!

    can't wait for the next film tho
