Variety reports that Sean Connery has chosen to remain in retirement rather than reprise his roll as Dr. Henry Jones in the next Indiana Jones movie. Mr. Connery, to borrow a line from a character in Last Crusade: You have chosen…wisely.
Frankly, Harrison Ford is now old enough to play his own father. I love Indiana Jones as much as the next guy, but I wasn’t laying awake at night hoping and praying they’d make another one. What, has George Lucas finally run out of hundred dollar bills to light his cigars with?
I believe the next installment of the beloved franchise is still being referred to as Indy 4, but I vote for Indiana Jones and the Quest for Filthy Lucre. Hey, maybe George Lazenby is available to take Connery’s place.
