Sean Connery Could Return For Indiana Jones 5
Posted 09.19.09 by BrentJS
While hardcore fans of the Indiana Jones franchise may have been disappointed by elements of the latest chapter in the Steven Spielberg and George Lucas collaboration, there's no doubt that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a colossal hit. With a production budget of $185 million, Skull became a blockbuster its opening weekend — earning over $100 million — and went on to rake in nearly $790 million worldwide.
complained that the franchise had been reduced by the inclusion of
aliens into the Indy mythos, while others were simply hoping to see Sean Connery reprise his role as Indy's father, Prof. Henry Jones. Connery's character was initially written into the Skull script, but was removed when the Scottish actor refused to appear again. Though it is implied in the fourth chapter of the Indiana Jones series that Indy's dad has passed away, an insider source is claiming that Spielberg and Lucas are working on a script for Indiana Jones 5 that opens the door for Connery to return.
Spielberg has been working on a script with George Lucas and there is
an element of the story that could see Sean returning. Anything is
possible in these movies and if Sean wants to return he will become
central to the new story.
