On Monday, principal photography began on the fourth Indiana Jones movie. Curious about what a sixty-something Indiana Jones looks like? Director Steven Spielberg snapped a behind-the-scenes photo of Harrison Ford in costume and it’s available over at the official IndianaJones.com site. Still looks like Indy to me.
Also announced this week, Jim Broadbent (The Chronicles of Narnia) has joined the cast which now includes Ford, Cate Blanchett (The Lord Of The Rings trilogy), Ray Winstone (The Departed), John Hurt (V for Vendetta), and Shia LaBeouf (Disturbia).
Though he’s had a distinguished career, Broadbent also appeared in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace as “Jean Pierre Dubois” according to the always-handy Internet Movie Database. Though I re-watched Superman IV fairly recently, I must admit I had no idea who that character was. The great thing about the web, though, is how easy it is to find this kind of trivial information. Now, if I ever meet this guy, I’ll definitely have to say, “Mr. Broadbent, loved you in Superman IV!”
Executive Produced by George Lucas, Indy IV is due out on May 22, 2008.
