LaBeouf in talks for ëIndy 5í
Shia Labeouf is set to swing back into action in the fifth Indiana Jones installment – the actor has confirmed he’s in talks to return to the franchise.
Harrison Ford reprised his role as the heroic archaeologist in 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which hit cinemas nearly 20 years after 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Ford has since confirmed movie bosses Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are working on a follow-up, but he’s adamant he will only sign up if he likes the story.
And now LaBeouf, who played Jones’ son Mutt in the latest film, is looking forward to the new storyline.
He tells Britain’s Daily Express, “They’re scriptwriting now. It sounds crazy. It sounds really cool.”
The film is reportedly due for a 2012 release to coincide with Ford’s 70th birthday.
