    Can you dig it? Fourth 'Indy' in '08

    Nineteen years after chasing down the Holy Grail in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," Harrison Ford will return to the big screen in the character of the globe-trotting archeologist in May 2008.

    Producer George Lucas and director Steven Spielberg confirmed details of the project Monday after Lucas tipped off the media to Indiana Jones' imminent return as he prepared to serve as grand marshal of the Rose Parade in Pasadena.

    After years spent in script development, a fourth installment of the famously successful franchise is set to begin production in June in locations around the world and in the U.S.

    Although he has been developing other projects, including a biopic about Abraham Lincoln with Liam Neeson attached to star, Spielberg has decided the "Indiana Jones" sequel will be his next directorial outing. Helping Spielberg choose his next directing commitment had been a primary goal of new DreamWorks CEO Stacey Snider (HR 6/23).

    "George, Harrison and I are all very excited," Spielberg said. "We feel that the script was well worth the wait. We hope it delivers everything you'd expect from our history with Indiana Jones."

      I'm excited too - I just hope they don't try to make Indy young. I would love to see something about him aging and dealing with it!

        According to the article it may get scheduled for a May 08 release along side Narnia: Caspian. It will be interesting to see how this story developes... Disney does have an Indy marketing oportunity here that they could capitalize on... We'll see.

            Nope, Harrison is still slated for the project, according to the article... He is quoted as saying, "I don't know if the pants fit, but the hat sure does."

            According to sorces, they are also trying to get Sean Connery back on board too...

              I mean that Harrison Ford is quite a bit older - I hope they don't try to make him the young swashbuckler that he was. Give him some age and portray him as an older guy.

                        Is it still rumored Kevin Costner may play Indy's bro? Or is that rumor dead?

                          It's dead.

                          The IMDB's trivia section for Indiana Jones 4 states:
                          As of April 2004, the project has been officially shelved once more after George Lucas rejected the script by Frank Darabont earlier. Reportedly, Lucas did not like Darabont's handling of the storyline between Indy and his brother (both Indy's father played by Sean Connery and brother, a role for which Kevin Costner was rumored to be considered, were to have roles in the new movie). In media reports Darabont indicated he was "disappointed" with the decision.
