Connery in Indy 5?

Connery in Indy 5?

I think the only way they’ll get Sean Connery back in front of a camera is if they douse him in water and flip his banana-lounge – but you gotta give ‘em points for trying to break the former 007’s pact with retirement.

Despite the fact he turned down a chance to make a gratuitously petite appearance in “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are still holding out hope that the acting great might soon get the itch to do time with a Nikon again. As an effect of their optimism, the duo has apparently written Connery into the next “Indiana Jones” sequel.

An unnamed source (usually the janitor, someone’s smutty alter-ego, or a die-hard fan of the actor that thinks if they write it down, it will come true) tells Ireland Online that Henry Jones will indeed be part of “Indiana Jones 5” – the script, anyway.

“Steven Spielberg has been working on a script with George Lucas and there is an element of the story that could see Sean returning. Anything is possible in these movies and if Sean wants to return he will become central to the new story.”

Just one problem – didn’t they explain Henry’s no-show in “Crystal Skull” by hinting that Indy’s father had passed away a few years before? Suppose that could easily be fixed with a line or two of dialogue (Sallah : No, Your father ISN’T Dead Indy – he’s been helping me search for the Lost City of Atlantis in the Sewers of Cairo”), but it’d still be a little on the nose. Unless, of course, they have Henry appear in some flashback scenes? That might work.

Harrison Ford said earlier this week that he, Lucas and Spielberg have all agreed on what the story of “Indy 5” will be. Meantime, Shia LaBeouf returns to jungle camp to brush-up on his vine swings.
