Sean Connery will not return for ‘Indiana Jones 4’


Sean Connery has officially bowed out of Indiana Jones 4 after swirling rumors of his return continued to persist. The former Bond is enjoying retirement and felt fit to issue a press release to squash any further notion that he will return to play the dad of Indiana Jones. Connery released the following statement through his publicist:

"I get asked the question so often, I thought it best to make an announcement. I thought long and hard about it and if anything could have pulled me out of retirement it would have been an Indiana Jones film. I love working with Steven and George, and it goes without saying that it is an honor to have Harrison as my son. But in the end, retirement is just too damned much fun. I, do however, have one bit of advice for Junior: Demand that the critters be digital, the cliffs be low, and for goodness sake keep that whip by your side at all times in case you need to escape from the stunt coordinator! This is a remarkable cast, and I can only say, 'Break a leg, everyone.' I'll see you on May 22, 2008 at the theater!"

Connery played Indy’s father in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Meanwhile, John Hurt has joined the cast that already includes Cate Blanchett and Ray Winstone.
