The Indiana Jones IV information keeps rolling in (read last night’s revelation of Shia LaBeouf’s character and the film’s plotline here), thanks to ‘Belloq.’ Our idol-theiving source confirms rumblings I’ve heard from other quarters (and frankly, from common sense): Karen Allen will be reprising the role of Marion Ravenwood in Indiana Jones IV, and she’s going to be Shia LaBeouf’s mom. And you’ll recall that Shia is Indy’s son. You do the math.
My sources tell me that this is a done deal, but Paramount offered no comment when contacted. It makes a ton of sense, though, as Karen Allen remains the iconic Indiana Jones love interest, and I’m sure Spielberg and company had no problem in securing her for the duration of the shoot. My sources have not been able to reveal how much time she gets in the movie, though.
There may be more stuff in the days to come, depending on what I can confirm, so keep a watch on this site. And by the way, I don’t have a copy of Frank Darabont’s script: I was allowed to read a printed version, but had to return it when I was done. And to be honest, if I did have it on pdf I wouldn’t send it to you guys, so you can stop emailing me and asking for it.
