  • Blanchett on crusade to "Indiana Jones 4"

    Cate Blanchett has signed on to star in the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones adventures.

    Harrison Ford already has boarded the project, which will be produced by Lucasfilm and directed by Steven Spielberg.

    With David Koepp's screenplay shrouded in secrecy, it is unclear what character Blanchett will play. However, sources said the Oscar-winning actress has landed a starring role.

    Shooting will begin in June in Los Angeles and at undisclosed locations around the world. Paramount Pictures will release Indy 4 day-and-date around the world on May 22, 2008, with a handful of territories opening the following day.

    Frank Marshall is producing, with George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy executive producing.

    Blanchett, who is filming David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, next will lend her voice to Wes Anderson's The Fantastic Mr. Fox. In addition to her Academy Award win for The Aviator, she received a supporting nomination this year for her role in Richard Eyre's Notes on a Scandal.

    I'm overjoyed. INDIANA JONES has to be my fav series (except for the monkey brains) and Cate Blanchett one of the most beautiful, graceful and talented actresses ... and she fits right into the whole 1930's movie star/Brit archeology era "vibe" And she's of an adequate age to play a romance with Indy, if need be ... in a slightly Bogart/Bacall way. Classy. Empowered. Charming.

      I would have preferred Jessica Biel, myself. So would have Harrison Ford...

        I'm trying to stay optimistic but I fear the worst.

                'I was joking. Can we move on?'

                No, I meant, without going to imdb, I'm not sure there's a big age difference between Cate and Callista ...

                So it's not beyond belief that Cate and Indy could have some love sparks flying in the movie, right? The old guy's doing okay off camera too.

                I mean ... Michael Douglas and whas her name. That's suspension of disbelief. She's gotta keep her cell phone on vibrate or sumthin' ...

                    The funniest post I have ever read, anywhere, was right here on DD, a little while ago when this same subject came up. Forgot who the brilliant poster was, but he wrote this:

                    INDY
                    Stairs. Why'd it have to be stairs?

                    Still cracks me up.

                      That is good. I don't guess there's any chance that was me.

                        Nope, actually it was me.
