It’s a boy, Indy!

Variety have confirmed that Shia LeBeouf is in final talks to star as the son of Indiana Jones in next summer’s long-awaited sequel.

 You might recognise LeBeouf as an underused background character in both Constantine and I, Robot. Or maybe if you’re as sad as me, you remember him from kids show Even Stevens, which he was actually very funny in (I don’t have a job, I watch a lot of television, ok?). LeBeouf is also set to star in this summer’s mega-hope Transformers which, if he lands the Indy Jr. role could shoot him to young super-star status.

Still no word on the title or plot of Indy’s fourth cinematic adventure, but after this news, we’re banking on Indiana Jones and the Legend of the Disappearing Child Welfare Cheque. Taking him on a mine-cart adventure every Saturday just isn’t enough, Dr. Jones.

Other possible stories could involve a vicious fatherly love triangle between Indy, his son and a now grown-up Short Round. “You treat me like son, Dr. Jones, then you no include me in third film just cos Sean Connery better sidekick!” Where is that former Goonie anyway? Hold on, we’re on the internet, the hub of useless information. Turns out he’s now working as a martial artist and a stunt co-ordinator. Amazing!

Indiana Jones and the Title That is yet to Be Revealed is due for a release in May 2008. I’m gonna have to buy a fedora……. I already have a whip.

    Shia is getting quite the roles, lately.

    I just purchased the Indy trilogy, and hope to watch them soon. Shockingly I’ve never seen them. (sad, I know)

    He could be a good fit as Indy’s son, although… Harrison is what? 70? That would make him about 50 when he had his son. I guess that’s plausible.

    My god Matt, get watching!

    They haven’t confirmed yet what age Indy is supposed to be in the film, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they try to pass him off as late 50s, despite Harrison’s geriatric status.

    Or maybe they’ll try to pass off Le Beouf as 40. Who knows with these movie types?

Quote of the Day

Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004)

Bill:Pai Mei taught you the five point palm-exploding heart technique?
The Bride:Of course he did.
Bill:Why didn't you tell me?
The Bride:I don't know... because I'm a bad person.
Bill:No. You're not a bad person. You're a terrific person. You're my favorite person, but every once in a while, you can be a real cunt.
