No Connery in Indy 4 – and it’s a good thing

George Lucas, as part of an interview for TV Guide, mentions that Sean Connery will not return as Indiana Jones father in the new movie – and it’s a good thing. “No, in the end, it turned out better. In the beginning, he was just in a little bit of it, and I think with the strength of Sean Connery, people would’ve wanted him to go all the way through the whole thing, and the story really didn’t work that way. And so I think there would’ve been some disappointment that [his character] dropped out partway through the movie.” Instead, the part was transferred to a new character, which I presume is the role to be played by Jim Broadbent (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe).
