Indiana Jones IV casting announcements

The official website for Indiana Jones IV has confirmed that Cate Blanchett and Ray Winstone are in the new movie, as is John Hurt, whose name I have not seen on these lists before — but not Sean Connery, who has issued a statement making his non-involvement official (“retirement is just too damned much fun”, etc.).

Connery does wish cast and crew all the best, though, and he gives “Junior” some advice, including: “Demand that the critters be digital”. Reading this, I am once again reminded that it has been 18 years since the previous Indiana Jones film, and I don’t think any creatures were digital back in 1989, let alone before that.

There is no official word yet on who any of the actors are playing.
