Indiana Jones 5 to become a classic?

Disappointment ran high with 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' but Shia Labeouf is thrilled with the new script of Indiana Jones 5, so far.

Steven Spielberg described the new and final film in the Indiana Jones franchise to LaBeouf who said according to Showbiz Spy :

"I got called into Steven's office and he pitched a little bit to me and it sounds crazy, it sounds really cool."

The final installment of the Indiana Jones franchise will see LaBeouf reprising the role as Indy's son alongside Hollywood actor Harrison Ford who will turn 70 when the film is released, tentatively scheduled for 2012.

Audiences will be asking whether Sean Connery will be making an appearance in the 5th film. It is highly unlikely that he will be part of the project, as Connery turns 80 this week and has enjoyed his retirement from films. His last onscreen outing was in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford will be hammering out the details of the script before it goes into production, and as fans wait in anticipation to discover the full cast, where the film will be shot, and how to audition for it, we can only sit and wait to see what happens next.

As a new generation of actors comes into the Hollywood spotlight, our onscreen heroes we have been accustomed to are reaching the retirement age and Indiana Jones 5 could be Harrison Ford s last Spielberg collaboration. But then again, who said 70 was old? Clint Eastwood is still very much in the game.
