Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull producer Frank Marshall has talked to MTV News and revealed … nothing that those following the rumours hadn’t pretty much already figured out. But still, it’s nice to get some official confirmation on a few points, finally.
“Ray Winstone, he came from ‘Beowulf‘ to this,” Marshall continued, describing Winstone’s character, Mac, as a sort of cross between villain Belloq and friend Sallah. “He plays an archaeologist competitor to Indy. Friend and competitor.”
Okay, that last revelation is a little new, at least to me. But Marshall doesn’t say anything one way or the other about, say, the role that John Hurt is playing in this film, or whether Shia LaBeouf really is playing Indy’s son as everybody assumes, or whether there is any truth to those alien rumours.
Which is fine. I wouldn’t mind if there were still some surprises in store when the film comes out six months from now.
