No Connery in Indy 4 – and it’s a good thing
by Doc on Sep.18, 2007, under Movies
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).
