Sean Connery decided not to break his retirement for the next Indiana Jones movie. He said it's just too damn fun doing nothing all day. I agree wholeheartedly, Mr. Connery. I'm wishing I was retired already and I'm only 25! That lucky bastard.
I thought this movie might of had a chance if Sean Connery returned. Plus, with casting the Shia, it seemed destined for box office gold! They just added John Hurt, who I love, but no word on which character he'll play. I'm sure they'll just write in Indy's dad as deceased. And that will be that. If they don't, the movie will be doomed.
Indiana Jones 4 is scheduled for release May '08.
