LOS ANGELES --Cate Blanchett is in negotiations to star opposite Harrison Ford in the long-awaited fourth installment of the ”Indiana Jones” series, her publicist confirmed Saturday.
”She is in negotiations, yes,” publicist Lisa Kasteler told The Associated Press. She did not elaborate.
Filming is scheduled to begin later this year, with Steven Spielberg on board to direct. The movie is being produced by ”Star Wars” creator George Lucas’ Lucasfilm Ltd.
Ford played Indiana Jones in 1981’s ”Raiders of the Lost Ark,” 1984’s ”Temple of Doom” and 1989’s ”The Last Crusade.”
Blanchett, who won a best supporting actress Oscar in 2004 for ”The Aviator,” starred in last year’s ”Notes on a Scandal” and ”Babel.”
She's a good actress, and would almost certainly be an improvement on the lackluster heroines in the first three movies.
Awful. Awful. AWFUL.
Yeah, she was the worst of the three. I found myself actually cheering for the heathens to sacrifice her just so she would shut up.
Any word on them bringing back the little Chinese kid?
What's this movie going to be called?
Saw her on Leno when Larry the Cable Guy was a guest...used to like her...what a stuck up snob she was.
"Indiana Jones and the Himalayan Nursing Home"
Indiana Jones and The Little Blue Pill
Indy retires moves to The Villages and embarks on a new senior adventure.
