The Scotsman caught up with actor Sean Connery who confirmed that he is considering taking on the role of Dr. Henry Jones in the upcoming Indiana Jones 4, now in development. The Scottish actor played Indiana Jones' (Harrison Ford) father in the third Indiana Jones film, "Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade" released in 1989:
Five years after apparently closing the dressing room door on his acting career, Connery has confirmed he is considering returning to the silver screen to reprise one of his most popular roles.
The actor says he will read the script for the fourth Indiana Jones movie and, if he likes what he sees, will appear once more as Indiana's father, Dr Henry Jones.
The new Indiana Jones film is due to shoot this summer, and after being approached by Lucas, Connery admits he is seriously considering it.
Asked directly if he thought he would be back in front of the cameras this summer as Dr Jones, he answered: "Perhaps."
Choosing his words carefully, Connery then added: "At the moment there's nothing decided. I haven't got the script. Everything depends on the script."
Indiana Jones 4 is scheduled to be released in May, 2008.
