Indiana Jones: And The Unknown Subtitle
has finally gotten underway after churning through at least four different scripts and writers if memory serves, finally settling on a tale written by David Koepp. Although it'll probably shoot something in foreign territories at some point during production, it appears that Steven Speilberg decided not to contribute to the problem of runaway productions by opening shooting somewhere in New Mexico, with other scheduled locations including Connecticut and possibly Nevada.Though I'm not certain why this is worth noting, veteran British character actor Jim Broadbent has signed on for a small role as a professor at Yale. Broadbent has played over 90 roles in his career, most of them in U.K. productions.
Broadbent will be in good company though, as Variety notes the pics star heavy lineup of Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett (hopefully she ate something recently,) and John Hurt. Even though the character of Henry Jones had been written into the script and remained there as recently as two weeks ago, Sean Connery made his intentions known when he announced that he was staying in retirement.
It is unlikely that the role will be recast, instead it will probably be written out of the script, if it hasn't been already.
