Take this as a rumor till we get further confirmation...

    FILM BUFF BET: Connery's set to die in Indy 4!!!

    by woo-jin

    If Harrison Ford is playing his own age of 64 how old is sean connery's character, like 110 or something?????!!! Will this mean we see a very dishevelled Henry Jones journey off to the grey havens at the end?

    didn't connery drink from the cup at the end of last crusade? so, his character technically wouldn't age like everyone else...right?

    If by aliens you mean illegal, it makes sense ...

  • April 18, 2007, 5 p.m. CST

    So why is John Rhys-Davies listed there?

    by performingmonkey

    I think they SHOULD bring him back to help give it the Indy feel. The movie will also miss Marcus Brody played by Denholm Elliot, who died some years ago. Shame. Although neither of them were in Temple Of Doom. I hope Marcus gets a mention. And I hope they DO deal with Indy's age. The story will probably be that he's become pussified for the last 20 years and has done no adventuring, then he'll be forced into it when Marion contacts him and says their son (that's right, motherfucking SON) has gone after some relic or what the fuck. Indy will don the fedora once more to save him, and just like in Raiders 3 (mwahaha...) they will join forces and find the City Of Gods (Atlantis??).

    Connery can't die! And neither can Indy!

    by Barry Egan

    They both drank from the Holy Grail at the end of the last one and that makes them IMMORTAL! Actually, it was a pretty cool metaphor to end the original trilogy on, the immortality of our film heroes and how they will live on forever in our collective culture. Making a fourth movie sort of messes with that plot development.

    by LordShinerBock

    Indy probably falls into the same trap that his father fell into by not exactly being there for him when he was a kid. Would make for some good conflict between Henry Jones III or whatever the hell his name's gonna be. Dolemite Jones?

Do you think Speilberg will intentionally make a horrid movie? Yeah, some endings have been forced / too feely good good, but c'mon! Ol Stevie will come thru and make a great movie.<p>I'm going out on a limb and saying I personally hope this is the start of a whole new trilogy with an older Indy. More cerebral then 2 fisted - with some serious 2 fisted action - but more more thinking man - I'd go for it.

    by Valebant

    why not have him in South America with the Nazis who fled to South America after WWII? Not necessarily Boys from Brazil and not as geriatric as Apt Pupil, but something like that. At least they could have him run into Adolf Eichmann in Argentina or collaborating with the Israeli Mossad. Maybe Rommel picked up something in Northern Africa, transported to South America... could be fun.

    Yes, the cup couldn't cross the great seal or something

    by IAmJack'sUserID

    ...like that. They both drank from it and the little sexy Nazi bitch tried to take it, and so it crossed the seal. NO ONE is immortal as a result. I think it made you immortal so that you could guard the cup forever.

    and sound like a Talkbacker cliché but I don't like that title at all. It's really doesn't possess any energy. Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, The Last Crusade ... they all sound like adventures, but City of Gods sounds so arty-farty and bland. I hope it's not the title It just doesn't fit.

    Odd story from 1942 ...

    by squidman

    A young, and VERY virile 11-year-and-11-month-old boy sired a son on July 13th, 1942. The lad, known as Connery, named his newborn son "Indiana" ... after the dog. That's right, folks. These two are just barely 12 years apart in age. Weird.

  • April 18, 2007, 5:25 p.m. CST

    seriously

    by AllieJamison

    why is there no explanation in the little inro where this official release look alike news sample is coming from? <br> I really like these "middle-of-the-week"-LOST-Indy tie ins. waiting for indyIV is very much like watching lost, indeed...

    by Mattyboy122

    Shia is his son, not even Karen Allen's involvement will be able to save this film. That's just something that God Himself couldn't make work. It would be so forced and contrived; but then again, so was Malcolm's PC adopted black daughter in The Lost World (also brought to us by Spielberg and Koepp, lo and behold). At any rate, the title isn't half bad and seeing Karen Allen and Indy together again on the big screen should be amazing, provided Shia is not their kid.

  • April 18, 2007, 5:33 p.m. CST

    what is this?

    by AllieJamison

    also... John Rhys Davies' listing makes this look like a fake... this whole thing....is SO untrustworthy... <br> I'd have nothing against Harry posting his opinion on this film's state without any fake news attached. Or is this supposed to tease anybody? <br> Who cares. But maybe this will be an opportunity for a good indy TB...the last ones were screwed by the whole labeouf-phobia.

If Indy was in his early to middle thirties in (about) 1935, then that would put this film in the mid 1960's. Maybe he can meet the Beatles when they land at JFK.

Pussies.

    by 69DUDE

    Under Seige 1 surely? It had Erika Eleniak's tits in it. Any action movie is instantly elevated to classic status if there are good, large naked tits on show. This DOES NOT include Gary Busey's blatant man-tits in Point Break.

    Connery says he's retired

    by Anakin Whoopass

    But Spielberg got Richard Attenborogh out of retirement for Jurassic Park and allegedly Connery is willing to do Indy 4 if he likes it. Yes he's only 12 years older than Ford but Ford can play a few years younger and Connery can play a few years older and you have a socially acceptable age of impregnation, especially for 1898 when it would have happened. Anyway, Connery in real life claims he lost his virginity at age 8 and look how it destroyed his life.

    by 69DUDE

    Sticking with tedious father and son theme then, here's a plot for Indy 5. Indy (and...yawn...son), must go on the hunt for Connery's characters bones. Reason being, they somehow hold the cure for Indy Sr's impotence, and they'd rather get them back before Belloc skullfucks the hell out of them.

    THIS IS BULLSHIT!!!

    by Doc_Strange

    They traded Rhy-Davies for LeBeouf? What the fuck is that? Obviously it's a play by Spielberg to shove LeBeouf in our collective faces. I thought Spielberg was above shit like that. I guess not. So here's a little something for you Mr. Spielberg if you're reading this: First of all you're one of the all time great directors. But I think with all the fame and accomplishment you have become somewhat arrogant towards the very people (us) who put you on the map to begin with. Now with this stunt casting, it just doesn't seem like something an accomplished director would do but here you are, shoving it in our faces in an attempt to make a career that isn't going to happen. Why? Because just looking at Shia LeBeouf, he just doesn't say leading man or alpha-male to me. He might have some acting chops but he suffers from the Leo DiCaprio syndrome, he looks like he's 10 even at 30. I know you're not used to hearing no but that's what we're saying. Please don't do this. Have at least have SOME respect for your core audience. Other than that, much luck with the new Indy.

    That title, company info, location and start date have been in circulation on production materials for a couple of weeks. And it's been in Below the Line listings. But that casting and logline is new and quite possibly fabricated. And apparently Connery is not yet convinced to return.

    the big twist

    by Staldo

    suppose Indy has to get back the golden head thing he stole in the beginning of Raiders-and restore it to the natives, because they are the guardians of some unholy evil, and, you know, it's not right to steal from indigineous peoples, and Indy is no longer a simple grave-robber, but the savior of mankind from the nazis...blah, blah blah.

    So....

    by CorpseRide

    ...this cast list is incorrect, the movie title is just the standard working title for Indiana Jones movies, and there's no source listed?<br> All that's missing is for Drew to come into the talkback and whine about how he already knew all of that and we're not telling him anything he doesn't know already.<br> This is the most laughable story since the Galacticloud one.<br> If this site still had it's balls (which it lost in about 1997), it would be full of stories about whether or not John Carpenter is still a chronic alchoholic. Sad times, sad times.

    by Deus Vult

    sorry Harry, I love you, you know that, but this movie will blow. no question. lucas and spielburg are not capable of making a good indy movie. even if the title is fake and/or the source is a fraud the movie itself, from a conceptual point of view, will be awful. lucas hasn't made a good movie since 1978 (date esb filmed) and spielberg is too busy raising money for hillary to do a good job.

    At least there'll be a new Indy score to listen to

    by finky089

    I hope there's at least a great new John WIlliams score to come out of Indy IV. <p>I'm not excited by the whole "Shia" casting-regardless of his role. And the mere fact that this is "new" film with an old Indy doesn't enthuse me the same way a new Indy film might have if today was April 1992 or 1993. But if there's another good John Williams score in it, maybe it'll be worth it. Been a long time since I first bought that Last Crusade score and I wouldn't mind adding a fourth disc to my Indy collection.....

  • April 20, 2007, 11:13 a.m. CST

    Darabont's pissed? So what? He got paid, didn't he?

    by finky089

    We all know Lucas is crazy, stubborn and hell-bent on fucking up the properties that once had him hailed as a "master" of filmmaking. But Darabont whining about it is rather unbecoming of him. I'm sure he wanted to be the guy behind the new Indy script, but sometimes shit happens. <p> Now, if he worked on it that long for spec, then I see why he's pissed, but he's also been in the business long enough to not do anything that stupid. I hope.

    the darabont issue

    by BizarroJerry

    While I wouldn't put it past Lucas to not know a good script when he sees it, I just don't see Spielberg rolling over for Lucas so easily if he liked the script as much as Darabont seems to think he did. GL may be the producer, but I can't picture him saying, "Whatever you say, George." The article also doesn't mention what Harrison Ford thought of the script.

    by finky089

    I would like to think Lucas knows what he's doing, but seeing what happened with the Star Wars prequels really has me second guessing him. I don't know how quickly Steven would defer to him over the script, but perhaps there's a difference of opinion between Darabont and SS over Darabont's script. SS might have really liked it, but who know what came out of the conversation he had with Lucas over it. I'll be curious to hear about the Darabont script one day after "they" can talk about it. Wonder if Koepp and the Cobra Kais will try to beat up whiny old Darabont after the school dance this year? <p> Yeah, I just threw out a Karate Kid ref.

    <p>That's probably what Indy is going to look like. Gasping and wheezing and struggling to get across the screen. Or Charles Bronson in Death Wish 3, where he could barely run down a street without getting winded. Or Sean Connery in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, where they had to cut to a stuntman everytime he did any fighting.</p> The more I think about it, the less enamored I am with the idea of a fourth Indy movie. It'll probably be embarrassing for all of us. Maybe they should just have Harrison reminesce or be in framing scenes and have a younger Indy perform the action.

    Agarttha, Land of the Living (Aryan) Gods

    by Pabodie

    Hitler searched for it... "Agartha is one of the most common names cited for the society of underground dwellers. Shamballa (also known as Shambalah) is sometimes said to be its capital city [1]. The mythical paradise of Shamballa is known under many different names: It has been called the Forbidden Land, the Land of White Waters, the Land of Radiant Spirits, the Land of Living Fire, the Land of the Living Gods and the Land of Wonders. Hindus have known it as Aryavartha, the land from which the Vedas come; the Chinese as Hsi Tien, the Western Paradise of Hsi Wang Mu, the Royal Mother of the West; the Russian Old Believers, a nineteenth-century Christian sect, knew it as Belovodye and the Kirghiz people as Janaidar. But throughout Asia it is best known by its Sanskrit name, Shambhala, meaning 'the place of peace, of tranquillity.' While once a popular concept, in the last century little serious attention has been paid to these conjectures (with the possibly apocryphal exception of Adolf Hitler), and the theory is not supported by modern science. The idea of subterranean worlds may have been inspired by ancient religious beliefs in Hades, Sheol, and Hell. Ferdynand Antoni Ossendowski's 1920 book Beasts, Men, and Gods also discusses Agartha."
