Connery out of Indy 4!

Wow, I was just heading out to lunch when some breaking news came across the inbox. It's official: Sean Connery is OUT of INDIANA JONES 4. Said the actor in a statement, "I thought long and hard about it and if anything could have pulled me out of retirement it would have been an INDIANA JONES film. I love working with Steven and George, and it goes without saying that it is an honor to have Harrison as my son. But in the end, retirement is just too damned much fun." It's looking as if John Hurt will replace Connery as Dr. Henry Jones as the studio has confirmed Hurt has joined the cast. They haven't confirmed anyone's role yet but Hurt's announcement was concurrent with Connery's. The release also confirmed the previous casting announcements of Shia LeBeouf, Cate Blanchett and Ray Winstone. For more, including Connery's full statement, check out the film's official site here. Pretty big bummer that they couldn't get Connery back. It'll be the one big, weird continuity break between the original series and this fourth installment. Oh well...the show must go on!
