No word yet on who he will be playing, though. Indy’s son? Indy’s nephew? Short Round’s adopted cousin? Who knows.
Or maybe, since they’ve been having trouble getting Sean Connery to come back, LaBeouf could play Indy’s dad! Tee hee.
And, hmmmm, is it just a coincidence that they’re announcing this on the same day that the Spielberg-connected, LaBeouf-starring, and satisfyingly suspenseful Disturbia comes out? Naaaah.
UPDATE: Apparently USA Today got the scoop late last night — and LaBeouf told them he hasn’t even read the script yet!
