Cate Blanchett Eyes Indiana Jones

As far as I'm concerned, Cate Blanchett can really do no wrong. I love watching this woman act, even in her more questionable movie roles. (Bandits, anyone?) So I'm just going to trust her instincts on this one: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Blanchett has signed on to star in Indiana Jones 4 alongside Harrison Ford.

In theory, I have no problem with Indiana Jones and very much enjoyed the first three movies. But I agree with many critics that casting Ford as the young adventurer seems a bit absurd. Still, everyone involved — including director Steven Spielberg — is keeping quiet about the plot details of the fourth movie, so maybe they'll come up with something great. And the addition of Blanchett certainly won't hurt. According to the Hollywood Reporter:

With David Koepp's screenplay shrouded in secrecy, it is unclear what character Blanchett will play. However, sources said the Oscar-winning actress has landed a starring role.

Shooting will begin in June in Los Angeles and at undisclosed locations around the world. Paramount Pictures will release "Indy 4" day-and-date around the world on May 22, 2008.

What do you guys think about this casting news? Will you go see Indiana Jones 4?

I have heard about a 4th indy, but didn't know who/what they were going to do...It would be nice to bring Indie's dad back (Sean Connery). Cate is great too....I am anxious to see what Spieleberg has instore with this one.

I cannot wait to see it! I already have a theory on the plot and I cannot wait to see if it pans out. It would explain bringing back Marion Ravenwood and why Indy would go back into action at such an older age. Only time will tell! Heheheee.. giddy like a school girl over this one!!
