Shia LaBeouf Close to Star in "Indy 4"

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull picture


Los Angeles-born actor Shia LaBeouf is engaged in final talks to play as Indiana Jones' son in the fourth installment of the hit adventure series.

Seems Indy will have a companion in his fourth journey. Variety has revealed that "Transformers" star Shia LaBeouf is in final negotiations to land a role as the son of our hero in what is currently referred as "Fourth Installment of the Indiana Jones Adventures."

Rumors about his involvement in the latest of the hit series have been circulating heavily along with those about Natalie Portman's inclusion. George Lucas, who co-wrote and executive produced the three previous installments, however, recently debunked the latter, saying the actress is "absolutely not" in the project.

Production on "Jones" is scheduled to start in June 18 this year with "Spider-Man" scribe David Koepp penning the script and prominent filmmaker Steven Spielberg assuming helming duties. Paramount Pictures has set May 22, 2008 to the flick's release date, taking advantage of the Memorial Day holiday.
