Oh, We'll All Go See It..

…but it does seem to me that Harrison Ford (65 years old) is getting just a little long in the tooth to be doing something like this. Maybe the movie will hand the reins of the franchise off to a younger actor (like they tried to do with River Phoenix). The project is being described as a “character piece,” which is not why the audience will want to see this movie.

Rumor has it the title will be Indiana Jones And The Ancient Prophecy, Sir Sean Connery will make at least an appearance as Henry Jones, Sr., and his female co-star will be Cate Blanchett. I hope we get to see more of Jonathan Rhys-Davies, too.

Can they keep the movies set in the 1930's and 1940's? Nazis make great bad guys, but the Communists less so. What will Indy be going after? So far he's had to find the Ark of the Covenant, the Holy Grail, and some magic stones that don't really exist in real-life mythology. I’ll create a poll tonight to see what we all think will be the thingamabob that Indy and the bad guys will be chasing.
